First hybrid camera stabilizer
First hybrid camera stabilizer
TRINITY is the first hybrid camera stabilizer that combines classic mechanical stabilization with advanced active electronic stabilization, provided via 32-bit ARM-based gimbal technology. This combination results in five axes of control and enables uniquely fluid, wide-ranging, and precisely controlled movements for unrestricted shooting and total creative freedom.
New angles for the operator and new storytelling options for the director and cinematographer are possible with TRINITY. By inverting the post, the camera can be moved from low mode to high mode during a shot; using the joystick-controlled, fully stabilized tilt axis to look up or down during this motion is also possible, so a low angle can smoothly transition into an over-the-shoulder shot. By holding the post at 45 degrees and twisting it left or right, the camera can even look around corners, whether in low or high mode. Additional stabilization in the roll axis permits the use of telephoto lenses. Extraordinary new shots, angles, and movements are achievable when TRINITY is used in its fully stabilized mode. For situations that call for a more traditional operating style, TRINITY can be switched into a locked mode in which the tilt axis is connected directly to the post in the traditional manner.
Unique hardware features
Next level of interaction between operator and hardware
Adaptive and flexible system
Because of the TRINITY's wide range of motion, it feels like we have been freed from boundaries that we had with conventional rigs. That's why I choose TRINITY when it comes to complex movements, especially when I do feature films.
TRINITY operator Hanafi Malik (Known for: Under the Age, Tabula Rasa, and many more)
When I received the rig, I practiced continuously for a week and started shooting long shots with film for "Em And Trinh." The camera can move at any angle I want. It helps the DP and the director compose shots that were previously impossible to do in the Vietnamese market.
TRINITY operator Lê Bảo Hân (Known for various commercials and music videos)
With TRINITY, it feels like the camera and the operator are dancing together, and that was very attractive to me. When I train, I operate the rig like it's my third arm. Muscles are only a minimal part of it. It's actually refined balance that can make TRINITY-operating easier.
TRINITY operator Choi Sun Ho
The TRINITY opens up new possibilities for directors and operators to tell the story through camera movements that weren’t achievable with any other tool before. With that comes more responsibility for the operators, getting more involved in the creative aspect and adding their own touch by knowing how to use this innovative system.
TRINITY operator Dani Dagher
TRINITY is a tool that opens new doors of creative camera movement with quick set-up time and endless possibilities. I love the horizontal mode, which allows you to go through, and in or out spaces - something you can’t do with a Steadicam or gimbal.
Karl Schmidt SASO, TRINITY Operator (Known for: Jiva, Fried Barry, Blood & Water, and many more)
The TRINITY system is the most significant advancement since the invention of the Steadicam. It offers the operator endless possibilities of perspective and movement, and thanks to the electronic stabilization, I can focus on the image completely and work more freely.
Leon Moralić, camera and TRINITY Operator (Known for: Sturm der Liebe, Live Sports events, and many more)
I am able to achieve the kind of shots that I was only dreaming of. TRINITY dramatically improved my operating skills and the way I think about the shot. It also brought me inspiration and 'sparkle' before shooting, that I was slightly starting to loose as Steadicam operator, after 20 years of operating.
TRINITY operator Igor Savatović (Known for: Selfie, Vis-à-vis, My beautiful country, and many more)
You dance with the TRINITY, so it was as though I was another dancer in the room. She would run to the wall, to the window, then do a backflip, and I’d be going from head height down to her feet in the space of two seconds. You can’t do that with other stabilizers.
DP and TRINITY operator Daniel Cawthorne
TRINITY is a truly unique, all-in-one camera tracking system, and an incredible asset for any production. For "1917," a one-shot war film where the camera is constantly moving through challenging locations and harsh terrain, TRINITY was especially helpful. It was the perfect solution to execute some of the long, meticulous, and incredibly complex scenes in a controlled and utterly graceful style.
TRINITY operator Charlie Rizek (Known for: 1917, Hard Tide, And it was the same with my son, and many more)
With the TRINITY, it's fascinating to always be able to offer new shots to the director. I'm amazed at how easy it is to place my camera in spots that would not be reachable with other types of equipment, due to the lack of space or setup time.
TRINITY Operator Emilio Giliberti (Known for: I soliti idioti: Il film (Camera and Steadycam Operator), Bene ma non benissimo (Camera and Steadycam Operator), Appena un minuto (Camera and Steadycam Operator) and many more)
For the last 12 years as a Steadicam operator I was dreaming of a movement from low to very high mode in one take, until I started operating the TRINITY. Operating the TRINITY is like performing Martial arts: The body movements and the TRINITY rig are in perfect harmony. Thank you Curt Schaller and ARRI to make my dream shots possible.
TRINITY Operator Tom Lebaric (Known for: Beneath a Sea of Lights (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
The TRINITY has given me a new way of operating, any shot is possible in no time.
TRINITY Operator Torben Meldgaard (Known for: The Sixth Sense (Camera Operator), Follow the Monkey (Steadycam Operator), When the Dust Settles (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
The TRINITY’s ability to “crane” up and down and it’s ability to push in or pull out over objects has opened up a multitude of artistic options for me. It’s my new paint brush and I’m excited to continue the exploration.
TRINITY Operator Aaron Medick SOC (Known for: Mr. Robot (Camera and Steadycam Operator), Power (Camera and Steadycam Operator) Girls (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
I'm in love with the TRINITY. Since doing La La Land, I have felt less enthusiastic about working Steadicam®, but now with TRINITY, it's like I get to start all over again. TRINITY has renewed my faith in the tools we harness.
Steadicam/TRINITY Operator Ari Robins (Known for: La La Land (Camera and Steadycam Operator), Battle of the Sexes (Camera and Steadycam Operator), Parks and Recreation (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
TRINITY is the game changer, it gives us operators the freedom to move more and worry less. I always like to think that TRINITY has finally allowed us to fly, glide, and dance like never before, it is indeed an amazing contribution to the film making industry and im glad to be part of this growing community.
TRINITY Operator John Ross Misa (Known for: The Patriarch (Steadycam Operator), Maria (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
TRINITY gives directors and cinematographers new ways to tell stories. In my many years as a steadicam operator I have had to work with limits to my movements - TRINITY has freed me from those limits. It gives me a smooth, seamless and natural feeling, and every shoot is unique - even after a year I discover new combinations of movement every time I use it.
Camera/Steadicam/TRINITY Operator Junior Lucano (Known for: Hidden Man (Camera/Steadycam/Trinity Operator), Duckweed (Steadycam Operator), Wine Wars (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
TRINITY is an amazing tool that opened up new opportunities for directors, DPs and operators to block and design their shots. Thank you Curt Schaller and ARRI for this genius invention.
Cinematographer/TRINITY Operator Fares Corbani (Known for: Meido (Camera Operator), Nour (Camera Operator), Chronic (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
With the TRINITY, there are no restrictions in storytelling, it inspires directors to find a new visual language. I am particularly impressed with its agility, its wide range and its fluidity, which enabled me to design new shots. Giving us more artistic creativity, the TRINITY helped us to achieve unique and impressive images, through unrestricted shooting angles and movements under great stability.
Director Zou Fei (Known for: Home Away (Director), PUBG Mobile Official Trailer (Director), TikTok Commercial (Director) and many more)
Trinity is an amazingly liberating tool. You can slide in at whatever angle works and get the camera into some pretty incredible places in a fluid way.
Cinematographer/Camera Operator Niels Lindelien (Known for: Husbands (Steadycam Operator), Domain (Steadycam Operator), Grace (Steadycam Operator) and many more)
As a Steadicam operator and technician I am trying to stay on top of the newest technology. That is what the Trinity is, and I knew that with the ARRI name behind it, the future of the system was assured. For me the purchase of the Trinity was also a ‘marketing move’ - I want to be known as ‘the guy who has the cool, cutting edge stuff’.
Cinematographer/TRINITY Operator Axel Ebermann (Known for: Reebok Cam' ron Blacktop, Reebok Crossfit Apparel, Northern Faces- Cops Home and many more)
The TRINITY allows me to move the camera in such an unrestricted and beautifully elegant way, like no other body-mounted stabilization system could do.
