Lightweight for its size yet designed to support DSLR cameras, the Ikan DS1 Beholder Gimbal for Select DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras is a 3-axis gyro stabilizer with brushless motors. It supports cameras such as Sony A7, GH4, G7 Series, Canon 5D, 6D, 7D, GX7, NEX Series, and DMC Series cameras. It features a quick release baseplate that makes it simple and easy to swap out the camera. Additionally, the baseplate can be adjusted, without tools, for precise balance. This can be especially useful when changing lenses.
The DS1 features four selectable stabilizing modes: follow, lock, inverted, and briefcase. Beyond just stabilizing, the DS1 allows you to adjust pan and tilt via a small joystick incorporated into the handgrip. It incorporates a USB port, which you can use to power a smal LED light (not included), or charge your smartphone. The handle houses the three 2600mAh batteries, which can typically power the DS1 for approximately 2 to 3 hours.
Lock Mode stabilizes the camera and holds in position even if you pan, tilt, or try to dutch-angle (off level the camera), until you reach the physical limit of the motor.
