The Eclipse™

Revolutionizing a new generation of aerial camera systems, the Eclipse™ offers the most advanced steering, stability, and pointing capabilities available on the market. By partnering with some of the world’s most creative and experienced DPs, our engineering team integrated user functionality with industry defining technology to produce the Eclipse™ – ushering in a NEW dawn of aerial cinematography.
At the core of the Eclipse’s™ superior stability is the patented XR Motion Management™ technology; enabling the most advanced steering, stability and pointing capabilities available on the market. On top of this, the open-architecture of the system allows for greater choice in digital or film camera and lens combinations.
