Letus35 LT-HELIX4-BTRC overview

  • 1Description

Stabilizing your camera moves has become the name of the game, and the Helix 4-Axis Camera Stabilizer with Bluetooth-WiFi and RC Modules from Letus35 stabilizes cameras weighting up to 16 pounds in three axes with its brushless gimbals. This Helix is built from aluminum, which provides an excellent balance between weight and strength. The Helix is a powered stabilizer that features a modular design with a removable platform for each of the three axes: roll, pan, and tilt. The modular design allows you to quickly turn your three-axis stabilizer into a one-axis stabilizer. This unit includes the 4th axis, which allows you to mount the Helix on a third party balancing system, such as a Steadicam, or tripod, while retaining full function of the Helix's 3 Axes. An optional spacer is required for mounting the stabilizer to a vest/arm-type stabilizer. This unit comes with both the Bluetooth-WiFi and RC modules installed at the factory. The RC module provides remote control of the pan and tilt functions by a second camera operator, while the Bluetooth module allows you to setup your Helix using an Android device running the BaseCam app, or using a laptop with the BaseCam desktop software. BaseCam is a free download. The WiFi allows you to interface with the iOS Letus Helix app, available on the app store.

The Helix balances around the optical center of your camera, providing less stress on the system and your cameras image stabilization system, but also allowing nodal camera rolls. The flat bottom design of the Helix allows you to place it down on a flat surface without requiring a stand mount or other support. It incorporates a cold shoe and 1/4"-20 accessory mounting points on the unit and handgrips. Please note: this unit does not include a battery or charger, which you must source separately.

Note: The Helix is wired according to US standards. Any 3rd-party power accessories must be compatible.

The Helix is designed balance and stabilize around the optical center of your camera/lens combination. This allows you to do nodal point rolls, and as the image sensor movement is reduced significantly compared to off-center stabilizers, image stabilization is improved.
It has been tested to work with cameras as light as the Sony a7S, and works with cameras weighing up to 16 pounds.
This unit includes the Bluetooth-WiFi and RC modules. The Bluetooth module gives you the ability to connect the Helix to your computer wirelessly, as well as use the SimpleBGC app to interact with the Helix via an Android device. The WiFi allows you to interface with the iOs Letus Helix app.
This Helix comes with the RC and Bluetooth-WiFi modules installed. The modules provides control of the stabilizer's pan and tilt functions by a second operator. The modules are factory only installation options, and if you have a Helix that you want to add the options to, you will have to send it back to Letus35.
You support the Helix system by holding onto it with two hands; the right handgrip allows you to tilt the Helix, while the left handgrip rotates freely.
Each axis platform of the system allows balance adjustment that reduces operating stress on the unit and the operator, and is indexed in millimeters allowing quick re-sets when switching between lenses.
Re-balancing the Helix after a lens changes is simply a matter of sliding a single axis forward or back. You can be back up and running without missing a beat.
The Helix system can be built up or torn down to accommodate your needs. Use one axis on top of an optional arm/vest type stabilizer for an auto-horizon solution. Switch to a three-axis setup to go full handheld.
The electronics are protected from reverse polarity, overheating, and over-current conditions.
The USB interface allows for configuration, control, and firmware upgrades.
This unit does not include a battery or charger, which you must source separately.

    Letus35 LT-HELIX4-BTRC reviews

    Helix 4-Axis Aluminum Camera Stabilizer with Bluetooth-WiFi and RC Modules is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk I bought this gimbal because of what I thought was an innovative design and I had high hopes for integrating it into all of our productions. I have had it for several months now and have never been able to get it to work properly. NOTHING about this unit is user friendly and it is not a professional level product. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TMIE OR MONEY! The unit comes with ZERO documentation and there is a very limited amount of poor quality video content available on how to set it up and get it running. Good luck once you get it out of the box. You are basically forced to sit on the phone with their technical support to get it set up balanced and working. That said, to this point, I have spent hours on the phone with Ken their customer support guy to no avail. Their app and gooey interface are esoteric and super quirky...and unless you are the one that actually coded and built the system...good luck in figuring it out. Ultimately, I experienced significant micro-shake and general wonkiness from this gimbal every single time I used it. The majority of the shots that I was able to capture would have been completely unusable with out significant post production smoothing. In summary...DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK!!! I have used both the Movi' and Ronnin products and they are far superior and much more user friendly. I am so bummed I did not buy one of those instead. In addition, the documentation and customer support provided by both of those companies is significantly better than what Lexus brings to the table. Don't waste your time or money...Lexus has lots of work to do to catch up with everybody else. Don't be their ginny pig.
