The Talos is a medium sized rig designed for high speed portable motion control and is the first choice rig for location work where a full rig with arm is required. The Talos' smaller foot-print allows it to be easily manoeuvred on location and is narrow enough to fit through standard doorways. Though smaller than its bigger brother the Milo, the Talos still offers a wide operating envelope.
The Talos head can be mounted over or under slung. Over-slung, a lens height of 3.4m (11ft) can be attained and a reach of just over 2m (7ft). The Talos provides axes for track, rotate, lift, pan, tilt, roll, camera, zoom, focus and iris.
The Talos is transported whole to studios or locations and can be set up and ready to shoot in under an hour. Being half the weight of the Milo yet offering the axes of a full moco rig, the Talos is an affordable option for freighting for remote shoots. Our Talos rigs are the most travelled rigs in our inventory recently shooting in South America, Middle East and all over Europe including as far as the Ukraine.
The Talos can take a wide range of camera packages from IMAX to DSLR and 3D rigs.
The whole rig can be simply controlled manually including pushing the rig along the track like a normal dolly. Moves can be recorded in Flair and frame accurately played back.
Our rigs are programmed using Flair Motion Control software, the most advanced motion control software available. Moves can be planned in 3D packages, fed into Flair and executed by our rigs. Reversely, moves programmed in Flair can be exported to 3D packages. For following live action or adding a handheld feel we have available, for Directors and DPs, handweels and pan bars (encoded Fluid head) as well as options for manual focus/zoom record and playback.
