In fact, the Russian Arm is the most flexible camera system on the market today. This high-speed mobile crane mounts on the roof of a camera car or even on boats, trains, and buses. Even better? You can use it to film moving vehicles from a variety of angles. Just think about all the creative possibilities you have using a Russian arm on your film production. You'll be able to manage rugged terrain and urban settings, and so much more.


You may wonder how the Russian arm got its name. Much like Kleenex for tissue and Xerox in the copy business, the Russian arm is a generic name for a type of camera crane. Anatoliy Kokush engineered his first camera crane, with inspiration from Russian tank turrets, which is where the camera arms got their name. Kokush fashioned a Russian arm gyro-stabilized camera to film such major Hollywood pictures as War of the Worlds, Casanova, and Titanic. You've also seen the Russian arm used in other films such as King Arthur, Transformers, and Iron Man 2, to name a few.
