Aerial Camera Systems (ACS) design and supply a huge range of specialist cameras. We were proud to be one of the first operators to take delivery of the latest Cineflex Pro from GSS, which has been the most recent addition to our Aerial Unit

Aerial Unit 

The ACS dedicated award-winning Aerial Unit co-ordinates and films aerial projects world-wide.  Our unit has a large inventory of specialist cameras, including: 

The Aerial Camera Systems Cineflex Pro 

The Cineflex Pro is a latest generation advanced stabilised gimbal designed for use with 'brick style' UHD broadcast cameras and ENG 2/3" lens type payloads. Fitted with the new Sony HDC P50 camera and Canon CJ45 lens as standard, it offers a range of format options including UHD, HDR and HD simultaneous live and HFR SSM outputs. 

The system is ideal to use on lightweight wire systems such as the Colibri from CAMCAT due to its small size and weight. In addition, it can be rigged to a range of helicopters, the ACS EyeFlyer Blimp, tracking vehicles and our extensive inventory of railcam systems.
The Cineflex Pro has a swappable lens payload to enable the use of a wide angle lens (Canon CJ12) and further options include the GSS Internal Navigation System (INS) which can provide live GPS/ Positional Data for VR/AR applications, wireless data control and a custom Quad 4G SMPTE based fibre transmission system for fully cabled applications e.g. railcam or hoist use. 

The Cineflex Pro has no ITAR or EAR export restrictions and is future proofed with full upgrade capability as gimbal, camera and lens technologies evolve. The full technical specification can be found here. This hugely flexible and innovative camera has been used on projects such as Royal Ascot, Wimbledon Championships and the World Athletics Championships in Doha.
