Whats faster? The worlds fastest Modular Dolly System, or the worlds fastest animal? We decided to put that to the test in our latest short.
The AGITO goes head to head with Lloyd Buck and his Peregrine Falcon called Rudi, reaching speeds up to 30mph across a bumpy field. The AGITO has 4 levels of stabilisation even before getting to the remote head, meaning that terrain such as this is just plain-sailing for the AGITO.
Paired with a Phantom Flex 4k slow-motion camera and the new ARRI SRH-3 stabilised head we got some absolutely stunning footage.

Now obviously the falcon wins the race, but the footage from the AGITO is absolutely stunning, something we couldn’t get with any other rig without either leaving tracks in the grass or sacrificing the camera movement entirely. The AGITO has a top speed of 32mph which was perfect for this shoot, it really gave the falcon a good run for its money!
Now with all camera movements, the stabilisation is key, even though we were shooting in slow motion we still needed to keep the camera smooth. The AGITO completely sucks up any bump we threw at it, the V-Con took out the big bumps while the Monster wheels and the suspension took out the rest, and the ARRI SRH-3 kept the camera level and framed nicely.
The beauty of the modular system with the AGITO is its flexibility for different types of movement, the AGITO has incredibly smooth motion while at low speeds, we were able to capture stunning shots inside the building where we were shooting, only needing to change the wheels over.
AGITO offers multiple configurations to suit your filming needs, it’s a swiss army knife for film-makers. When fitted with Sports ends your AGITO becomes the world’s first multi-terrain robotic dolly system. Whilst it’s ideal for filming sports, this set up is perfect for all types of film making. With four-wheel drive, adjustable suspension and top speeds of 32 mph, it can revolutionise any production.
