The WISP-20M from Axler is a handheld motorized gimbal stabilizer designed for use with mirrorless or similarly sized cameras. It utilizes quiet brushless motors to isolate your camera from unwanted hand shake along the yaw (pan), pitch (tilt), and roll axes, allowing you capture smooth, fully stabilized shots with camera and lens combinations weighing up to 1.9 lb.

The gimbal stabilizer offers two distinct operating modes: a Follow Mode that allows the camera to smoothly follow the pan and tilt motion of the unit, and a Lock Mode to keep the camera in a single position, regardless of how the stabilizer is moved. A thumbstick on the back of the handle is used to switch between modes and adjust camera pan and pitch tilt. Additionally, a button on the camera platform activates a Low mode, lettings you invert the stabilizer for easier low-angle shots.

Designed for ease of use, the WISP-20M features a sliding quick release plate for quick camera attachment and balancing. An offset adapter plate is included to fit wider cameras or cameras with an off-center 1/4"-20 socket. Once balanced, the internal gyros automatically stabilize your camera when the device is powered on. The motors are powered using three readily available 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, which provide around two to three hours of continuous operation. Batteries and a micro-USB charging cable are included.

For added versatility, there is a 3/8"-16 threaded socket at the bottom of the handle that allows the stabilizer to be mounted on a tripod, monopod, or jib. A 5V USB port on the handle can be used to charge a smartphone or to power an included compact and flexible LED light, useful when working in dimly light environments.

Asked by: Edgar
This gimbal has a 1.9 pound load capacity. It is possible you could use it with an A6300, but you will need to use a very light weight lens for the combination to be possible. The 16-50mm kit lens included in B&H # SOA6300BK will keep the total weight to 18 ounces, which would be well within the load capacity.

question

Will this work with Nikon 1 J5 w/30-100mm lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you are referring to the 30-110mm lens, as was found in this kit from B&H, we believe it is possible. That combination of camera and lens will weigh around 14 ounces, which is less than a pound. This gimbal can handle up to 1.9 pounds. https://bhpho.to/2St0NxE

Hello dise it work with canon 5 D mark for with 50mm lens?
Asked by: Yousef
We're afraid not. This gimbal is designed to work with Mirrorless cameras and will not be able to properly balance a Canon 5D. The Feiyu AK2000 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer, B&H # FEAK2000, has a 6 pound load capacity and would be a better choice for an affordable option that can work with a Canon 5D. https://bhpho.to/2JGR277

question

My camera's mounting hole is 1/4 - can I replace the 3/8 screw with a 1/4?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 3/8 -16 listed for this Gimbal is to connect it to a tripod. If your camera has a 1/4 -20 thread, which is standard, it includes 1/4 -20 screws to mount it to the gimbal already.

question

Will this gimbal support the weight of a canon sl1 w/ 18-55mm lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
Although you can mount a SLR on it I doubt that it will work right as it's made for very light weight cameras like smart phones, etc.

question

Will this work with a Fujifilm X-T20?
Asked by: Kevin P.
This gimbal has a load capacity of 1.9 pounds and is designed to work with mirrorless cameras. You should be able to use the Fujifilm X-T20 with this gimbal, just as long as the lens you select keeps the load below 1.9 pounds.

Sorry, this gimbal is not rated for the weight of an SL2 with lens. We suggest this one. ikan DS2 Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer with Encoders B&H # IKDS2
