The Handheld Stabilizer Kit from ikan is comprised of the DS1 beholder gimbal and a dual grip handle. The DS1 gimbal is a 3-axis handheld camera stabilizer designed for large DSLRs and mirrorless cameras to achieve smooth, stable footage. It has a maximum load capacity of 3.7 lb and is compatible with the Sony a7S, Panasonic GH4, Canon 5D Mark III, and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The gimbal uses brushless motors to stabilize movement on tilt-and-roll axes and provide smooth image capture while shooting handheld, while walking, or in any situation in which the camera is moving.

The 3/8"-16 thread mount at the bottom of the gimbal handle allows you to mount the DS1 beholder to a monopod, tripod, or slider. Its built-in five-way joystick control offers complete command over pan/tilt and mode choice. A USB port on the handle can be used to power a small LED light or your smartphone. This stabilizer comes with a quick-release balance plate, an offset camera mount, a USB power supply for charging, and a travel case.

Constructed out of durable, lightweight aluminum, the dual grip handle is specifically designed to control the beholder gimbal with ease. It increases the stability and offers over-handed or under-handed gimbal operation modes.

  • DS1 Beholder Gimbal for Select DSLRs and Mirrorless

    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.

  • Dual-Grip Gimbal Handle

    This Dual-Grip Gimbal Handle from ikan enables you to operate your gimbal with both hands rather than one. Capturing smooth, professional-looking footage with your gimbal-mounted DSLR is rewarding, but nursing an aching arm is not. By transferring movement from your wrist to your core, this two-handed grip increases the time you can shoot comfortably. The Dual-Grip Gimbal Handle can be grasped overhanded, or underhanded (with gimbals that work in an inverted mode).

    The Dual-Grip Gimbal Handle features built-in feet so you can rest the unit on a tabletop, creating a stable base for hands-free gimbal calibrating. Constructed of lightweight, durable aluminum, the DGH attaches to most gimbals with a 1/4-20" or 3/8"-16 mounting socket.
