Phase One OEM Design by SOMAG AG

SOMAG AG Jena developed an exclusive OEM design for Phase One for both the Compact Stabilization Mount CSM 40 and the Dynamic Stabilization Mount DSM 400.

The aim was to create a timeless mount design that would also create a direct association with Phase One and its products.

We therefore decided on a matt black housing with a white Phase One logo.

Inspired by the blue rings of the Rodenstock lenses of the iXM-RS 280F, we decided to add a coloured ring to the mount as a matching style element. The colour of the ring corresponds to the blue of the standard Phase One logo.

Two Gyro Stabilization Mounts as perfect add-ons for Aerial Solutions

The three axis gimbal DSM 400 is the perfect gyro stabilization mount for the Phase One 280MP Aerial Solution, as the Mount supports the reduction of the angular rate and counterbalances the aircraft movements and thus ensures an optimal stabilization of the system for blur-free images. The stabilizer is also used for 4-band configuration.

The CSM 40 is a small modular stabilization device for the Phase One 100MP/150MP Aerial Solution. With a weight of just 5.2 kg the Mount is particularly suitable for ultralight aircraft and drones.
