The ikan DS2 Beholder is a 3-axis handheld gimbal stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless cameras weighing up to five pounds. The DS2 offers unlimited 360° rotation along the pan (yaw) axis, and features an advanced 32-bit controller and 12-bit encoder system. It offers three follow modes plus a lock mode that sets the camera in a fixed position. A point-and-lock mode allows you to physically position the camera, and it will hold that position until reset.

Auto inversion mode allows for upside-down operation, while retaining all the mode's functionality. The DS2 also features a lock mode that sets the camera in a fixed position. An integrated OLED display on the rear confirms the selected mode of operation and provides battery life info. Designed with a quick release baseplate that allows for convenient camera attachment and tool-less balancing, the DS2 also has two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes on the handle for attaching accessories for advanced setups, and a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole on the bottom for mounting onto a tripod, monopod, and other support gear. The DS2 runs on three supplied 18650 batteries that provide 8-10 hours of operating life when used continuously, and up to 20 hours when the gimbal is switched between shooting and standby modes throughout the day. Mounted within a caddy, the batteries slide into the handle. Charging is done outside the DS2, with the batteries within the caddy. You cannot charge the batteries within the gimbal unit. The batteries can also be charged using optional chargers such as the ikan ICH-SC4. Included with the gimbal is a small folding tripod that can be used to support the gimbal on a flat level surface when balancing, and you can close the legs and use it as a handle for extra length.

360° Rotation Motor
The DS2 features a 360° rotation brushless motor on the pan axis

Lock Mode
In the lock mode, the pan, pitch, and roll axes work together to keep the camera pointed in one direction. The camera's composition stays the same no matter how you move the handle
Auto Inversion
Simply flip the handle over the camera to switch to this mode at any time. It can be operated in conjunction with any of the lock or follow modes

    DS2 Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer with Encoders is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice DS1 Upgrade! I previously owned the DS1, which I loved using, but decided it was time for an upgrade. The DS2 does not disappoint! Overall I found that the DS2 is easier to balance and just as reliable if not more reliable. I can't imagine shooting a wedding without DS2 gimbal now.
