A JOCKEY 4th AXIS UPGRADE FOR RONIN/RONIN-M & JOCKEY MOTION 4-AXIS GIMBAL

True 4-Axis Jockey Technology, the Holy Grail of cinematic video stabilization, has arrived. This patent pending 4-axis technology stabilizes the vertical axis, a critical deficiency of traditional 3-axis gimbals in addressing bouncy videos. In developing the revolutionary Jockey Motion 4-Axis gimbal, Turbo Ace engineers have also adapted a seamless 4th-axis Jockey upgrade for Ronin, Ronin-M, Movi M5, Movi M10, Movi M15, AllSteady-6Pro and AllSteady-6Plus gimbals, providing easy transition between existing 3-axis and new 4-axis stabilization.

A QUANTUM LEAP IN GIMBAL STABILIZATION

Recent advances in 3-axis gimbals have been effective in tilt, roll and pan stabilization, but fall far short in addressing the natural bouncy gait of a bipedal operator on the go. The Jockey’s proprietary 4th axis technology with Adjustable Coil Tension and Dual Hydraulic Suspension put an end to undulating videos. Say goodbye to “would or could have been” footage compromised by bouncy footage that requires tedious hit-and-miss post editing and software stabilization.

Many gimbal setups on the market consist of heavy equipment, leading to long exhausting sessions. With Jockey’s True 4-Axis Stabilization and Compact Jockey Support Rig System, operators are free from restraining heel to toe "gimbal" walks with bulky shoulder rigs or heavy robotic arms. They can now easily keep up with walking or running subjects for long durations. For cinematic shots or camera adjustments, insert the gimbal into the Jockey Support Rig and transfer all excess payload to your hips. At any moment, draw the gimbal from the holster for increased mobility and creative freedom - a truly revolutionary way to film.

JOCKEY 4TH AXIS STABILIZER

If you already own a DJI Ronin, DJI Ronin-M, Movi M5, Movi M10, Movi M15, AllSteady-6Pro or AllSteady-6Plus 3-axis gimbal, you can choose one of the JOCKEY PLUS PACKAGES to upgrade your 3-axis gimbal to 4-axis. Simply replace the original horizontal 3-axis handlebars with the Jockey 4th-Axis Stabilizer easily identified by its signature "V" handlebars. The PRO PACKAGES include both the Jockey 4th-Axis Stabilizer + Jockey Support Rig + Underslung Mounting Kit (UMK).

OPTIMIZING JOCKEY STABILIZATION & SUPPORT RIG

Filming with the Jockey outside the holster offers the best vertical stabilization, especially when you are walking or running. Insert the Jockey in the Support Rig's holster for stationary panning and pivoting shots or to take a break and make camera adjustments. If you choose to walk and film with the Jockey inside the belt holster, we recommend that you employ a heel-to-toe gimbal walk as if you are using a steadicam.

Transition from operating in and out of the holster provides many ways to optimize Jockey functions. By lowering or raising the cone-shaped-collar under the Jockey you can decrease or increase Jockey's range of movement inside the holster. A higher cone-shaped-collar position would allow you to freely lift the Jockey out of the holster from any angle and a lower position would allow it to lock on to the holster.

For operators who need extra support and to keep the holster up, there is a highly recommended suspender, available at Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GK4TWTK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

ERGONOMIC ADJUSTABLE DUAL JOINTED "V" HANDLEBARS & BUILD-IN BALANCING STAND

The evolution of Jockey’s signature "V" handlebars is based on function and clean line aesthetics. This patent pending design enables cameraman to frame shots from different heights and distances to the body while maintaining an ergonomic handle position. Another key advantage is the implementation of convenient toolless adjustment while minimizing weight and maintaining proper orientation for both underslung and inverted-upright modes to accommodating special Ronin and AllSteady joystick mounts. Ten months and six versions later, a double-opposing-jointed "V" design finally emerged and prevailed. Nevertheless, Jockey engineers did not stop there. Determined to further optimize functional design, we added a very short third leg to compliment 2 downward pointing handles which doubles for a Built-in Gimbal Stand and a way to balance your gimbal on the move.

WHY ALL PREVIOUS 4-AXIS GIMBALS FAILED?

Despite many attempts, earlier 4-axis gimbal developments were unable to overcome 2 major roadblocks. First, basic spring attributes are not conducive to adjustments for varying payloads. Second, the challenge of gravity compounded by stored energy result in endless undulating bounces. These are all extraordinarily difficult challenges that would be a big ask for any gimbal developer. You may have seen several carefully choreographed 4-axis gimbal videos on the web. But in every case the operator must first find exactly matched spring and payload then counter each upward movement with well timed and equal downward movement to prevent the dreaded bounce. Due to these challenges, the 4-axis gimbals you've seen never materialize as finished products.

DUAL TENSION ADJUSTMENTS & DUAL HYDRAULIC SUSPENSION

Innovative and proven Proprietary Jockey Suspension System provides easy Toolless Coil Tension & Leverage Adjustments to balance varying payloads. To prevent oscillating bounces, Jockey’s suspension system integrates 2 strategically positioned Custom Heavy Duty Hydraulic Shocks to absorb and slowly dissipate energy. For heavier payloads and more rugged terrain you can pair up two Jockeys with the Heavy Duty Jockey Package. Addressing your every need, the Jockey can easily and quickly adjust to accommodate a wide variety of productions.

JOCKEY SUPPORT RIG, A REVOLUTIONARY WAY TO REDISTRIBUTE PAYLOAD TO YOUR HIPS
NO MORE BULKY CUMBESOM SHOULDER RIGS & ROBOTIC ARMS

Many gimbal setups on the market consist of heavy equipment, leading to long exhausting sessions. While shoulder rigs or robotic arms may alleviate some arm and back strain, the additional weight and bulk of these devices causes an assortment of problems - from a significant increase in overall payload to obtrusive cables and vests that constantly get in the way. At less than 20% of the weight of a normal shoulder rig or robotic arm, our patent pending Super Light Weight Support Rig transfers the gimbal and camera weight to your hips instead of your upper body while providing a choice to switch between two operating modes. For cinematic panning shots or to make camera adjustments while on the go, insert the Jockey into its Support Rig holster and transfer all excess payload to your hips. At any moment, draw the Jockey out from the holster for increased mobility and range of movement. No more “missed opportunities” because you are unable to adjust your camera while holding the gimbal. No more "lagging behind action" because your arms are about to fall off. The Jockey Rig offers nimble unobtrusive unrestrained payload support - a compelling way to film for long duration.

Note: The Jockey Support Rig is included in PLUS PACKAGE-R, PLUS PACKAGE-MR, PLUS PACKAGE-A, HEAVY DUTY PACKAGE-R, HEAVY DUTY PACKAGE-MR, HEAVY DUTY PAKCAGE-A & JOCKEY MOTION ALL-IN-ONE PACKAGE only.

UNDERSLUNG MOUNTING KIT

Insteady of mounting a 3-axis gimbal in an inverted-upright orientation on top of Jockey 4th-Axis Stabilizer, this kit gives you another choice to mount a 3-axis gimbal in a underslung orientation under the Jockey 4th-Axis Stabilizer which lowers the operator's center of gravity and the camera's filming perspective. In addition to the underslung extension bracket, an UNDERSLUNG MOUNTING KIT also includes one of the following:

* UNDERSLUNG MOUNTING KIT-R also includes an adapter to mount your quick release plate for the Ronin and Ronin-M.
* UNDERSLUNG MOUNTING KIT-MR also includes a quick release plate to mount your Toad-In-The-Hole adapter for the Movi M5, M10 and M15.
* UNDERSLUNG MOUNTING KIT-A also includes a 500 series Manfrotto compatible adapter to mount your Manfrotto quick release plate for AllSteady-6Pro, AllSteady-6Plus and AllSteady Motion.

FAILURE OF PREVIOUS 4-AXIS GIMBALS

Despite many attempts, earlier 4-axis gimbal developments were unable to overcome 2 major roadblocks. First, basic spring attributes were not conducive to adjustments for varying payloads. Second, the challenge of gravity compounded by stored energy resulting in endless undulating bounces created by the spring. Both are extraordinarily difficult obstacles that gimbal developers have yet to overcome. You may have seen several carefully choreographed 4-axis gimbal videos on the web. But in each case, a spring of specific size and tension is selected to match the operating payload. Hence any payload change will destroy the equilibrium. Then, the operator had to counter every upward movement with a well-timed and equal downward movement. The need to constantly return to a centralized position demonstrates how these attempts at vertical stabilization will not work in real world applications, hence none of these prototypes were ever released as finished products.

ALL-IN-ONE PACAKGE: JOCKEY MOTION 4-AXIS GIMBAL

If you do not currently own a gimbal, we highly recommend that you invest in the turnkey ALL-IN-ONE PACKAGE instead of the PLUS PACKAGE. The ALL-IN-ONE PACKAGE enables you to use the Jockey Motion as a True 4-Axis Gimbal with powerful encoder technology. Or, with a twist of the quick release, you can detach and replace the Jockey with Horizontal Handlebars to use the Motion as a 3-Axis Gimbal.

Recent trend of eye level filming using an inverted-upright gimbal mode usually render the camera to sit in an upside-down position. The Jockey Motion is instead designed to maintain a right-side up camera position in all gimbal modes, saving valuable post-editing time. And in contrast to the Ronin and Ronin-M (which by the way are fully upgradable to 4-axis using the Jockey), the Jockey Motion gimbal features advanced memory angle lock, anti-drift technology and programmable AlexMos PID settings for customized precision adjustments.
