Stabilizing your camera moves has become the name of the game, and the Helix 3-Axis Magnesium Camera Stabilizer Magnesium from Letus35 stabilizes cameras weighting up to 16 pounds in three axes with its brushless gimbals. This Helix is built from magnesium, which is lighter and stronger than aluminum, while providing superior vibration dampening than aluminum. 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 configuration includes Bluetooth and RC modules. The factory installed 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 Helix balances around the optical center of your camera, providing less stress on the system and your camera's 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. The Helix is designed to stabilize your camera while hand-holding the unit; however, with an optional 4th axis, you can also mount the Helix to third party stabilizing systems if you wish. 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 Helix comes with the Bluetooth module installed. The module allows you to set up your helix using an android device or laptop with the Basecam app or desktop software. The Bluetooth module is a factory installation option only, and if you have a Helix that you want to add the Bluetooth option to, you will have to send it back to Letus35.
The Bluetooth module gives you the ability to connect the Helix to your computer wirelessly, as well as use the BaseCam app to interact with the Helix via an Android device.
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 with an optional 4th axis, or 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.
