The Handheld Stabilizer Kit from ikan is comprised of the MS1 beholder gimbal and a dual grip handle. The MS1 gimbal is a 3-axis handheld camera stabilizer designed for point & shoot and mirrorless cameras to achieve smooth, stable footage. It uses brushless gimbal 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. This gimbal has a maximum load capacity of 1.9 lb is compatible with the Sony a7S, RX-100, and NEX series, Panasonic GH4, Samsung NX500, and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

The gimbal's 1/4"-20 thread mount at the bottom of the handle is suitable for attaching an articulating monitor arm for mounting a small monitor or smartphone for monitoring/recording. This thread mount allows you to mount the MS1 to a monopod, tripod, or slider. The 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. Included with the stabilizer is a quick-release balance plate, an offset camera mount, a USB power supply for charging, and a travel case.

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. This dual grip handle is constructed from durable, lightweight aluminum.

  • Beholder MS1 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer

    The Beholder MS1 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer brings the simplicity and flexibility of a handheld smartphone gimbal stabilizer to the world of mirrorless cameras. It features a 3-axis, motorized gimbal designed to keep your camera level and isolated from hand shake while allowing you to create smooth, organic moving camera shots. The MS1 features two operational modes: a following mode that smooths your camera movements and a lock mode that will hold your camera in its position as you move. The MS1 features a thumb button/joystick which you use to select modes. You can also use the joystick to pan and tilt your camera on the gimbal.

    The gimbal features a baseplate and sliding camera plate that allows you to adjust the balance of your camera on the sled, both left-to-right and forward-to-back. An included offset balance plate expands the range of cameras that you can use with the Beholder. The soft case allows you to pack up your gimbal and accessories for transport and storage.

    The terms pitch, roll, and yaw are often used to describe its axes of stabilization with this type of stabilizer. For those camera operators that are not familiar with these terms, if your camera was mounted on a tripod, the terms would translate as follows:
    • Yaw = Pan
    • Pitch = Tilt
    • Roll=Level (Horizon)


    The MS1 supports two modes: Follow Mode and Lock Mode.
    Follow Mode stabilizes the camera and allows it to follow your movements as you pan and tilt.
    Lock Mode stabilizes the camera and holds in position even if you pan, tilt, or try to Dutch (off level the camera), until you reach the physical limit of the motor.
    Thumb Button/Joystick
    The thumb button/joystick incorporated into the handle allows you to select the mode. It also allows you to pan or tilt your camera on the gimbal.
    Sliding Balance Plate
    Once you have balanced the camera side-to-side, the sliding balance plate allows you to quickly rebalance your camera front-to-back when changing lenses without having to rebalance the camera side-to-side or remount it on the stabilizer.
    You can mount a variety of cameras to the stabilizer. The Offset plate has 5 additional 1/4"-20 positions to balance many different weighted cameras and lenses.
    The handle features a USB port that can be used to power or charge your camera or other USB powered device.
    Battery Life / Charging
    The batteries fit inside a removable cradle in the handle, and must be removed for charging. Charging takes between 4 to 5 hours, and can run the stabilizer for 2 to 3 hours. A built-in LED indicates battery condition and charging status.
    The MS1 supports the following cameras:
    • Sony A7S
    • Sony A7II
    • GH4, GH3, GH7
    • A6000
    • BMPCC
    • NX500
    • Canon G6
    • RX100 - with included adapter plate
    • NEX series
  • 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.
