Letus35 Helix Jr. overview

  • 1Description

The Letus35 Helix Jr. is a 3-axis motorized gimbal stabilizer designed for small and mid-size cameras, such as DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, and is suitable for all productions with up to 12 lb payloads. This model comes with left and right handgrips for handheld operation. The gimbal also comes with Helix Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules. The Bluetooth module allows you to wirelessly interact with the Helix Jr. from a Mac/Windows computer or Android app, helping you to customize settings. The Wi-Fi module allows you to utilize the Letus Helix iOS app, which you can download for free from the App Store. You can also change follow speed, eliminate residual vibrations, switch between joystick and RC controls, and change the function of the menu button. The RC module enables you to remotely control the Helix Jr. using a compatible Spektrum controller such as the DX7 (sold separately).

The Helix Jr. balances around the optical center of your camera, providing you with the ability to execute nodal point rolls. It also minimizes the movement of the image sensor, allowing you to capture stabilized shots. By adjusting a single axis forward or backward, you can easily-re-balance the gimbal after a lens swap. Thanks to the flat-bottom design, the Helix Jr. can be set up on the ground or a flat surface between shots. The frame sits under the camera and the handgrips can be attached in line with the camera. 

The Helix Jr. runs on three axes via a pan motor, tilt motor, and roll motor. When configured for handheld-mode, it can be used in standard handheld mode or in suitcase mode. Suitcase mode offers 180° rotation of the Helix Jr. and allows you to hold it with a one handgrip. In such a situation, the camera can also be rotated to compensate for the 180° repositioning and the handgrip can be rotated to function as a typical top handle. The Suitcase mode also offers tilt functionality during one-handed operation and also supports hand-offs for second operators.

The Helix Jr. is powered by a 2600mAh JuiceBox Jr. lithium-ion battery and a charger. The onboard battery indicator will keep you informed of remaining battery life. 

Note: Helix Jr. is wired according to US standards. Any 3rd-party power accessories must be compatible.

    Letus35 Helix Jr. reviews

    Helix Jr. Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, RC, and Encoders (Magnesium) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Gimbal- I upgraded to Letus 35 UPDATE- I HAVE UPGRADED TO LETUS 35 REGULAR SINCE I BOUGHT CANON C100 M2 BUT THIS WAS EQUALLY AWESOME STABILIZER. It’s been almost one year since I bought this product. I was skeptical first since there aren't many reviews of this product and it is one of the most expensive camera stabilizers in the market. Like, I said it'd been almost a year now, and I had an opportunity to use Letus Helix on plenty of wedding events...and the more I use it, the more I am falling in love with this gimbal. It's very easy to setup; you can set this on the ground quickly change lenses and adjust very quickly. Doesn't take too much of time to bring it back to balance. The encoder motors work great. I love the briefcase mode. I mostly use Canon C100 M2, but this gimbal easily handles my C300 M2 with Canon 16-35L III lens or with the 24-70L lens. I had to practice a little bit to get stable footage, but I had never used gimbal in my life, the learning curve for me was minimal, a couple of hours of good practice is good enough to start getting good footage. I looked into purchasing another gimbal in the markets, but I like the form factor of this gimbal - holding at eye level has its advantage. Customer support is excellent. Overall, I am glad I purchased this product, I am pleased with it, and I am highly recommending to anyone looking to buy Letus Helix with encoder motor. It is one of the best gimbals in the market now.
