Special Photography and Videography Gear for the Professional

The Task

In addition to backache, the Steadycam Operator is mostly affected by wind. His finely balanced, almost hovering camera is shaken by the tiniest wind turbulence. Up to now, beams and transparent plastic sheets were used by the assistants to protect the cameraman and his steadycam equipment. However, this construction has a disadvantage: The wind blocked off by the sheets got back with strong turbulences at the edges of the sheets and affected the system even more. Physics can’t be fooled!

The Solution

Physics can’t be fooled? It can! Because the wind can be tamed with the little surprise called the California Sunbounce Wind-Killer. After many discussions with steadycam cameramen, the Sunbounce design team found that the 100% wind block of the sheets was the problem. A gentle but constant wind does not affect the gimble-mounted camera. Therefore, Sunbounce used a material that only holds back 75% of the wind. 25% of the wind is let through deliberately but meets the camera gear as a gentle, even breeze, which turns the turbulences occurring at the edges into a constant flow. Logical! And – because the material is transparent, the assistant can see what he is doing and can communicate better with the cameraman.

Since this special Wind-Killer material is also used on the normal Sunbounce-Classic-3-D frames, the entire tool is as light as a feather, super stable and features grips everywhere that could not be better positioned for this purpose. The same effect is used in fashion photography where hairstyles and clothes must not get blown by the wind and the clothes must fall in a method the designer wanted. The Wind-Killer is a tool not to be missed at any shoot. Film or Fashion shooting.

The California Sunbounce Wind-Killer Classic Mobile is available in three sizes: Mini – Pro – Big. The best is: If you already have a Sunbounce-Classic-3-D frame, you only need to order the Wind-Killer Screen. This saves you money.
