The wait is over. The highly anticipated 360Helios cinematic 360 video rig is here. True digital film quality, genlock capabilities, RAW capture and 13 stops of dynamic range make the 360Helios the perfect tool to capture VR/360 content.
The 360Helios system is designed to have the smallest possible form factor for positioning Blackmagic Design cameras for spherical capture. Our 360Helios holders position our custom lenses as close to the nodal center of the rig as physically possible. Due to the 360Helios rig’s design and the shallow form factor of the lenses themselves, each camera’s lens is closer to those directly adjacent to it in the configuration.
360Helios 360 video rigs feature a patent-pending variable camera orientation, allowing users to position cameras in landscape or portrait orientations. This unique design allows users to seamlessly incorporate standard cables, an array of lenses and other third party accessories. 360Helios eliminates the need for expensive custom lens and cabling solutions. Variable camera orientation allows users to dictate how frames overlap.
The 360Helios Bullet control system is an integral component of the ecosystem that allows users to simultaneously control and power multiple Blackmagic Design cameras. This system controls up to 8 cameras remotely or wirelessly with the 360Helios Bullet web app (available for iOS, Android, PC, Mac) and is compatible with our full 360Helios product line. This remote access includes the ability to utilize Futaba wireless control to operate the cameras simultaneously.
The smallest form factor rig. The 360Helios 3 Mounts three cameras for the most affordable, minimal configuration to film 360 video with Blackmagic Design cameras.
The 360Helios 6 can be configured to mount 6, 5 or 4 cameras in a spherical orientation for capturing full 360 x 180 degree 360 video content. Offers additional frame overlap for more control during the stitching process and higher quality footage in comparison to a 3-camera configuration.
The 360Helios 7 can be configured to mount 7, 6 or 5 cameras in a spherical orientation for capturing full 360 x 180 degree 360 video content. Offers additional frame overlap for more control during the stitching process and higher quality footage in comparison to a 6-camera configuration.
The 360Helios 8 rig holds the highest number of Blackmagic Design cameras in the 360Helios line. The 360Helios 8 offers the highest degree of frame overlap and highest resolution in the system lineup.
