Take Handheld To New Heights
Handheld Just Got Way Better
The ZeeGee combines the handheld look with everything we love about Steadicam included added boom range, elimination of footsteps and reduced fatigue.
The ZeeGee is an innovative three axis zero gravity head specifically for the handheld look.  It provides freedom of movement in the pan, tilt, and unlike similar products, the roll axis, replicating the look and feel of handheld operation combined with the stability, boom range, and weight displacement of the Steadicam arm. This combination offers operators, DP's and directors a unique look that's unmistakably handheld without the shake, limited range, and and operator fatigue that comes with standard handheld operation, especially when doing multiple takes.

Designed by a Steadicam operator for Steadicam operators 
The head can be underslung from Steadicam arms, usually from a Garfield mount, and with the "shovel handle" adapter, from ropes or elastic lines including the Cinema Devices Undersling, from cranes, speedrail rigs, or Easyrig overhead supports. Operators can independently set the drop rate CG of the roll axis independant of the tilt.

What The Experts Say

Dave Emmerichs, SOC

"The ZeeGee is simple and intuitive to operate. If you’re already an experienced Steadicam Operator, you’re going to love this thing. I wish I’d had this device at the beginning of my career." 

Neal Bryant, SOC

"Now I can get my Steadicam rate and rental  on a handheld show when I otherwise wouldn't. The ZeeGee basically paid for my wedding."  

Colin Hudson, SOC

"With this I can get the camera anywhere I want and it’s half the weight of the full Steadicam. I can hold it a lot longer and still get the camera where it needs to be."
