CVI XL – Car Mount Gimbal Vibration Isolator for rent at Film Equipment Hire


Mounting cameras to vehicles has proven difficult due to vibration, even when a stabilized gimbal is used. Moving vehicle components and vibrations from the road often cause unstable video and rolling shutter ‘jello’ issues. Also, jerky movements of the vehicle can put huge amounts of stress on gimbal bearings and motors.


The CVI passively isolates the stabilized gimbal from high frequency vibration. This makes the gimbal’s job easier and improves video quality. We use wire rope spring modules to support the weight of the camera and gimbal while creating enough ‘float’ for passive isolation.


Day €50 / Weekend €100 / Week €150

The CVI XL works on the same principles as the standard CVI, only on a larger scale. We’ve added 9 wire rope modules instead of 6, and upgraded to 8mm thick plates to handle the largest of handheld gimbal setups. The stock payload range is from 16-28 lbs (7.3-12.7kg). Payloads above 28 lbs can be supported with custom stiff-wire modules. Lighter payloads all the way down to 3 lbs can be supported by simply removing wire rope modules.

Even for lighter payloads, the CVI-XL provides better stabilization than the standard CVI because of its larger mass and wider area moment of inertia. Just remove 3 of the 9 wire rope modules.
