ikan MS-Pro Beholder Overview

The MS-PRO Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer for Mirrorless Cameras from ikan supports cameras weighing up to 1.9 pounds. Designed for professionals, it is suitable for use with small cameras with a 1/4"-20 mounting screw hole, GoPro cameras (requires optional mount not included), and select smartphones (requires optional mount not included). The camera platform incorporates three locking levers that allow you to adjust and balance your camera on the gimbal without requiring tools.

A 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder help create smooth, accurate, and efficient stabilization for fast response and extended battery life. Three follow modes—pan-only, pan-and-tilt, and 3-axis (pan, tilt, and roll)—allow you to control which axes to stabilize and which to allow follow movement on. A built-in lock mode will hold the camera locked onto one point; and in any of the gimbal's modes, you can reposition the camera manually by holding it in place and having it hold that position. The built-in joystick allows you to override the follow mode and reframe the shot electronically, for smooth framing adjustment. You can also invert the gimbal for low-angle underslung shots. A built-in 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole allows you to mount the gimbal on a tripod. The unit is powered by three 18650 rechargeable batteries.

Designed for mirrorless cameras
360° rotating brushless motor
Lock mode: Yaw, pitch, and roll axes work together to keep the camera pointed in one direction
Pan-follow mode: Follow pan axis and hold the tilt position
Follow mode: Both tilt and pan axes
Three-axis follow mode: No restrictions as it allows the camera to follow pan, tilt, and roll
Easily switch to inverted mode at any time by simply flipping the handle over the camera
The built-in joystick, operated by your thumb or finger, allows you to make smooth framing adjustments within the shot
Inverted mode operated in conjunction with any of the Lock and Follow modes
Display screen on the back of the handle conveniently shows information on the battery life and operating mode
Two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes on the handle, suitable for mounting accessories
Batteries rest inside a caddy which is inserted into the handle. They are charged within the caddy by using a 2.5A/12.5W USB charger (not included). Charging with this method will only charge the batteries to 80% capacity, and ikan recommends using a dedicate charger such as the ikan ICH-SC4
USB port on the handle for firmware updates (cannot be used to charge the batteries or power accessories)

Will It work with Sony A6000. I mean the gimbal that can turn on and off, focus the camera?
Asked by: Thach
The specifications state that it supports cameras up to 1.9 pounds. This means the A6000 with smaller lenses should be fine, however when using the more advanced Sony zoom lenses there may be a problem.

Does this work on the Sony FDR- AX33 Camcorder?

Does this work on the Sony FDR- AX33 Camcorder?
Asked by: Reden
It does not. This is designed to work with Mirrorless Cameras, it will not be able to balance a small camcorder. Instead you will want to look at ikan DS2-A Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer with Encoders, B&H # IKDS2A. The DS2-A is able to balance a small camcorder like the AX33. https://bhpho.to/2zKxcDj

Dose it eork for Sony a6500 and Sigma 16mm f1.4 lens ? Thank you
Asked by: Bach
That combination of camera and lens will be very close to the load capacity of this gimbal. It should be possible to balance, but it can be a bit tricky being so close to the capacity. The Ikan DS2 Beholder, B&H # IKDS2, with a 5 Pound Load Capacity would be a better option. It will be more convenient to balance that combination on the DS2. https://bhpho.to/2AJJo6f

We're afraid not. The MS-Pro will not be able to balance a camera like the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.

My gimbal struggles with an A6000 and 35mm lens. I would assume my setup is lighter than an a7r3.
