Much of today's
professional video and motion picture production is shot with the
help of a "Steadicam" rather than with the use of a traditional
tripod to hold the camera. The Steadicam is a gyroscopically
dampened camera mount that keeps the image smooth and steady even
when the camera is handheld and moving quickly. The camera is free
to follow the action rather than being locked in one fixed location.
most things these days, the Steadicam is battery powered. When the
folks at the very popular TV show, Law & Order: Criminal Intent,
needed to have their Steadicam batteries rebuilt with high
performance 4000mah NiMH cells, they chose SR Batteries to do the
work. They sent us their existing battery packs and we rebuilt them.
They even saved some money because it was much cheaper to rebuild
the existing packs rather than replace them with new ones.
