Oculus Remote Head Camera Mount

The new Oculus stabilized camera gimbal from SpaceCam easily transcends the capabilities of competing systems, and presents new and unique aesthetic opportunities for directors and directors of photography in the motion picture industry.

The Oculus gimbal head revolutionizes the operational envelope of such devices as it is basically free of movement and control restrictions. Faster, smoother, lighter, stronger, quieter and able to look in any direction from any position, Oculus is poised to change the creative concept of the cinematographer and director.
