At the Bench: Assembling & Operating the Exhauss Exoskeleton

At NAB 2015, I showed off the innovative Exhauss Exoskeleton support system at our booth. After spending more time with it, I decided to take a more in-depth look and answer some of the questions that I've been getting about the rig.

Check out the first video for step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the Exhauss system when you first take it out of the case. In my second video below, I'll show you how to adjust the tension on the arms correctly based on the weight of your gimbal and camera setup. I'll also demonstrate how to get in and out of the Exoskeleton by yourself, as well as how to adjust it for proper fit and comfortable operation. I cover the two modes of operation; the "hands-free" mode where you secure the straps around the crossbar of your gimbal, and the more direct approach where you slip your hands through the straps and grip the gimbal normally. Both offer their advantages, but when you slip your hands through the straps you're able to still perform handoffs or pass-throughs since the Exhauss is not directly attached to the gimbal.

If you'd like to get a closer look at the Exhauss Exoskeleton, make sure to visit our interactive showrooms in NY, LA, and Chicago or check out our Freefly MōVI or DJI Ronin classes!
