Abstract

The stabilizer has a support (1) to be held by an operator, and a swivel part (2) carrying a film camera (4) and a balancing mass (4a) for balancing the center of gravity of the film camera. A body cooperates with a pivot of the support such that the body allows displacement of the swivel part independent of the support while damping sudden movements of the support. The support and the swivel part are linked by magnets carried by each of the support and the swivel part, where the polarities of the magnets in relation to screws on each side are the same.

Description

La présente invention est relative à un stabilisateur pour appareil de prise de vues. The present invention relates to a stabilizer for image pickup device.

Il est bien connu que la prise de vues en vidéo exige une grande stabilité de l'appareil de capture et, que l'appareil soit tenu à la main ou fixé 10 sur un support en mouvement, les mouvements brusques transmis audit appareil dégradent la qualité de l'image. It is well known that taking video views requires high stability of the capture device, and the device is hand held or mounted on a moving 10 support, sudden movements transmitted to said device degrade the quality of the image.

Pour remédier à ces inconvénients, il a été créé des stabilisateurs comportant une masse équilibrant celle de l'appareil de prise de vues. To overcome these drawbacks, it was created stabilizers comprising a mass balancing of the shooting unit. Ainsi on connaît un stabilisateur dont le montant reliant l'appareil à sa masse d'équilibrage est relié à un harnais porté par l'opérateur. Thus there is known a stabilizer of which the amount connecting the device to its balancing mass is connected to a harness worn by the operator. Ce matériel est encombrant, onéreux et nécessite un long apprentissage. This material is cumbersome, costly and requires a long apprenticeship.

20 II existe, aussi, des dispositifs sans harnais, mais il s'avère qu'avec ceux-ci l'orientation de l'appareil de prise de vues est difficile. 20 There is, too, no headgear devices, but it turns out that with them the orientation of the camera device is difficult.

Le dispositif de l'invention, qui remédie à ces inconvénients, est constitué de deux parties à savoir un support tenu, manuellement, par 25 l'opérateur ou fixé sur un support en mouvement, et un équipage mobile, comportant l'appareil de prise de vues et sa masse d'équilibrage, ledit équipage reposant, en son centre de gravité, sur un pivot dudit support. The device of the invention which overcomes these disadvantages, is composed of two parts, namely a light support, manually, by the operator 25 or mounted on a moving support, and a mobile assembly comprising the camera views and the balancing mass, said crew sitting in its center of gravity, on a pivot of said support.

De cette façon, en raison de l'inertie de l'équipage mobile, un 3o tressaillement du support n'est pas transmis à l'équipage mobile. In this way, due to the inertia of the moving assembly, a 3o thrill of the carrier is not transmitted to the moving element. 15 Des moyens sont prévus pour transmettre un déplacement volontaire du support, dans l'une ou plusieurs des trois directions de l'espace, à l'équipage mobile. 15 Means are provided for transmitting a voluntary movement of the support in one or more of three directions in space, to the moving element.

Les moyens précités ont pour effet de permettre le déplacement de l'équipage mobile à une vitesse qui ne dépende pas de celle de déplacement du support mobile mais qui soit plus faible et adaptée à l'obtention d'images correctes : le déplacement est amorti. Said means have the effect of allowing movement of the mobile assembly at a rate which does not depend on the displacement of the movable support but which is smaller and adapted to obtain correct images: the movement is damped.

La présente invention sera mieux comprise par la description qui va 15 suivre faite en se référant aux dessins annexés à titre d'exemple indicatif seulement sur lesquels : - la figure 1 est une vue en perspective montrant les deux parties du dispositif de l'invention ; The present invention will be better understood from the description which will follow 15 with reference to the accompanying drawings purely by way of example only in which: - Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the two parts of the device of the invention; - la figure 2 est une vue en perspective montrant le dispositif en position 20 d'utilisation ,- -la figure 3 est une vue partielle, en coupe verticale et à plus grande échelle de la figure 2 ; - Figure 2 is a perspective view showing the device 20 in position of use, - FIG 3 is a partial view, in vertical section and on a larger scale of Figure 2; - la figure 4 est une vue en perspective du dispositif complétée par des moyens permettant d'entraîner l'équipage mobile ; - Figure 4 is a perspective view of the device specified by means for driving the movable assembly; 25 -la figure 5 est une vue, analogue à celle 4, montrant une autre forme de réalisation ; 25 FIG 5 is a view, similar to 4, showing another embodiment; - la figure 6 est une vue schématique montrant le principe de fonctionnement du dispositif d'entraînement du mode de réalisation de la figure 5. - Figure 6 is a schematic view showing the principle of operation of the drive device of the embodiment of Figure 5.

30 En se reportant, notamment, à la figure 1, on voit que le dispositif comporte, principalement, deux parties 1 et 2. 30 Referring in particular to Figure 1, it is seen that the device comprises mainly two parts 1 and 2.

La partie 1 est constituée par un support affectant, sensiblement, la forme d'une équerre dont l'aile verticale 1 a supporte une poignée 1 b, constituée par exemple par une barre transversale, tandis que l'aile horizontale 1c comporte un pivot 3, constitué par exemple par un corps sphérique. Part 1 is constituted by a support affecting substantially the shape of a square whose vertical flange 1a supports a handle 1 b, constituted for example by a cross bar, while the horizontal flange 1c has a pivot 3 , consisting for example of a spherical body.

La partie 2 est constituée par l'appareil de prise de vues et par sa masse d'équilibrage, ces deux organes étant représentés schématiquement et désignés par les références 4 et 4a, lesdits organes étant réunis par un montant 5 comportant un décrochement 6. Le montant 5 comporte un organe 7 présentant une cavité 7a, débouchant vers le bas dont le fond semi sphérique peut venir coiffer le pivot 3. L'organe 7 est disposé de façon à ce que, lorsque la partie 2 est 20 montée sur celle 1, le centre de gravité de ladite partie 2 soit sensiblement confondu avec celui de la partie sphérique constituant le pivot. Part 2 is constituted by the image pickup apparatus and its balancing mass, the two bodies being schematically shown and designated by the references 4 and 4a, said bodies being joined by a strut 5 comprising a recess 6. The amount 5 comprises a body 7 having a cavity 7a, downwardly opening whose semi spherical bottom can fit over the hub 3. the body 7 is arranged so that when the part 2 is mounted on the 20 1, the center of gravity of said part 2 is substantially coincident with that of the spherical portion constituting the pivot.

Les frottements entre les organes en contact des parties 1 et 2 étant pratiquement nuls, un mouvement intempestif transmis à la partie 1 par 25 l'opérateur sera sans effet sur celle 2. The friction between the bodies in contact parts 1 and 2 being substantially zero, inadvertent movement transmitted to the part 1 by the operator 25 will not affect the two.

Dans ce qui va suivre, on va décrire des moyens permettant d'entraîner la partie 2, le but des moyens mis en oeuvre étant de transmettre le déplacement sans risquer d'altérer la qualité des images prises. In what follows, there will be described means for driving the part 2, the purpose of the means employed being to forward movement without risk of altering the quality of captured images. Une première solution consiste à fixer sur le support 1 des aimants produisant des champs dans les trois dimensions de l'espace et à placer dans ces champs des aimants portés par la partie 2, les aimants étant disposés de 30 façon à ce que ceux de la partie 1 tendent à repousser ceux en vis-à-vis de la partie 2. A first solution consists in fixing on the support 1 of the magnets producing fields in the three dimensions of space and to be placed in these fields of the magnets carried by the part 2, the magnets 30 being arranged so that those of the 1 part tend to push those vis-à-vis of part 2.

Pratiquement, les aimants de la partie 1 sont disposés sur les champs internes d'une cage constituée par l'association de deux armatures 8 et 9, en 10 forme d'U, rendues chacune solidaire par leur partie médiane de ladite partie In practice, the magnets of the part 1 are arranged on the inner field of a cage formed by the association of two plates 8 and 9, 10 in a U-shape, made integral each by their median portion of said

A chacune de ces armatures aimantées est associée une galette aimantée, respectivement 10 et 11, portée par le montant 5, chaque galette 15 est sensiblement disposée dans le plan de l'armature correspondante, mais cette disposition n'est pas impérative. Each of these magnetic plates is associated a magnetised slab, respectively 10 and 11, carried by the amount of 5, each wafer 15 is substantially disposed in the plane of the corresponding frame, but this arrangement is not mandatory.

Si l'armature est brusquement déplacée, de façon par exemple, à pivoter selon un axe vertical, la partie 2, par inertie, reste sur place, l'appareil 20 de prise de vues ne bouge pas. If the armature is suddenly displaced, so for example, to pivot about a vertical axis, Part 2, by inertia, rest on site, 20 image pickup device does not move.

Toutefois lors de ce pivotement, l'une des branches de l'armature 8 s'est rapprochée de la galette 10, l'équilibre est rompu et l'aimant de ladite branche va repousser la galette et forcer la partie 2 à pivoter sans 25 mouvement brusque nuisible à la qualité de l'image. However, during this pivoting, one of the branches of the armature 8 has moved closer to the wafer 10, the balance is upset and the magnet of said branch will push the wafer and force the part 2 to rotate without 25 sudden movement detrimental to image quality.

II ressort des explications ci-dessus que la rapidité de déplacement de la partie 2 est pratiquement indépendante de celle de déplacement de la partie 1 portée par l'opérateur, les mouvements brusques de cette dernière se 30 trouvant amortis. It appears from the above explanations that the speed of displacement of the part 2 is substantially independent of the moving part 1 carried by the operator, sudden movements of the latter 30 being amortized.

Comme cela ressort de la figure 5, un résultat analogue peut être obtenu par des moyens mécaniques. As is apparent from Figure 5, a similar result can be obtained by mechanical means.

Selon un mode de réalisation, la partie 1 supporte trois paires de poulies 12, les poulies de chaque paire étant réunies par une courroie 13 élastiquement déformable. According to one embodiment, the part 1 supports three pairs of pulleys 12, the pulleys of each pair being joined by a belt 13 elastically deformable. Les poulies peuvent être remplacées par des doigts fixes. The pulleys may be replaced with fixed fingers. 10 Ces trois ensembles 12-13 sont disposés de façon à ce que les brins des courroies de chaque ensemble s'étendent, respectivement, parallèlement aux trois directions de l'espace définies par les axes X, Y et Z de la figure 5. 10 These three sets 12-13 are arranged so that the strands of the belts of each set extend, respectively, parallel to the three spatial directions defined by the axes X, Y and Z in Figure 5.

15 Entre les brins de chaque paire s'étend un doigt de la partie 2. Ce doigt peut être fixe ou pivoter librement selon axe. 15 between the strands of each pair extends a finger of part 2. This finger may be fixed or freely pivot about axis.

Pour l'axe X, il s'agit d'un doigt 6b formant le prolongement de la partie supérieure 6a du décrochement 6, pour l'axe Y, il s'agit de ladite partie 6a et 20 pour l'axe Z, il s'agit de la partie inférieure 5a du montant 5. For the X axis, there is a finger 6b forming the extension of the upper part 6a of the recess 6 for the Y axis, it is said portion 6a and 20 to the Z axis, it is the lower portion 5a of the rail 5.

La figure 6 est une vue schématique montrant la paire dont les brins de la courroie s'étendent parallèlement à l'axe Y. Figure 6 is a schematic view showing the pair in which the strands of the belt extending parallel to the axis Y.

25 Si le support 1, entraîné par l'opérateur, pivote selon un axe vertical, le « doigt » 5a va déformer élastiquement le brin 13a qui, ensuite, va se détendre et, en repoussant ledit doigt, va faire pivoter la partie 2 à une vitesse qui n'est pas directement liée à celle de rotation de ladite partie 1, les mouvements brusques se trouvant amortis. 25 If the carrier 1 driven by the operator pivots about a vertical axis, the "finger" 5a will elastically deform the strand 13a which then will relax and, by moving said finger will rotate the portion 2 to a speed which is not directly linked to the rotation of said part 1, sudden movements being amortized. 30 II ressort de l'ensemble des explications ci-dessus qu'il est possible, par un choix judicieux des aimants, de leur force et de leur positonnement, de même que par un choix judicieux des courroies, d'obtenir une vitesse de5 déplacement de la partie 2 qui, tout en étant dépendant de celle de la partie 1, ne soit pas proportionnelle à celle-ci mais, soit compatible avec l'obtention d'images de bonne qualité. 30 It follows from all the above explanations it is possible, by a judicious choice of the magnets, their strength and their positonnement, as well as by a judicious choice of the belts, to obtain a displacement rate of5 part 2 which, while being dependent on that of part 1 is not proportional to it but, consistent with obtaining good quality images.

La liaison entre la partie 1 et celle 2 peut être réalisée par un dispositif 10 de suspension à la Cardan. The connection between the part 1 and 2 that can be achieved by a suspension device 10 of the gimbal. - -
