The Tilta Hydra Alien is a car mount system. Capture smooth, dramatic action shots from a moving vehicle. Mount your camera rig onto a car or moving vehicle with support and stabilisation. The Hydra Alien mounts with a tripod suction system and features modular dovetail mounting plates and supports. This results in high or low-angle shots at a variety of angles. In addition, shock absorption and damping come standard. However, its mounting plate can support an additional shock-absorbing head or arm for additional stabilisation and motion. Finally, it features a V-Lock battery power system to power gimbal systems such as the DJI RS 2.
