ikan DS2-A Beholder overview

  • 1Description

The ikan DS2-A Beholder and Monopod Extension Kit includes the DS2-A Beholder three-axis gimbal stabilizer and MPA70 five-section aluminum monopod. The gimbal offers unlimited 360° rotation on the yaw axis and features an angled roll motor arm for an unobstructed view of the camera's screen. It features a 32-bit controller and 12-bit encoder system, and uses an adaptive PID algorithm for better performance. Mounting the gimbal to the monopod adds stability and control, and allows you to create jib-like shots without any additional gear or complicated setups.

  • DS2-A Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer with Encoders

    The ikan DS2-A Beholder is a 3-axis handheld gimbal stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless cameras weighing up to five pounds. The DS2-A offers unlimited 360° rotation along the pan (yaw) axis, and features an advanced 32-bit controller and 12-bit encoder system. The DS2-A features an angled support arm that allows you to operate the gimbal normally while having an unobstructed view of the camera's LCD screen. You will notice that the gimbal is silent when powering up, avoiding the start-up chimes of other gimbals. 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-A 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-A 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-A 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-A, 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-A 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
    Three Follow Modes
    Pan axis: The DS2-A will only follow your pan movements
    Pitch and yaw-axis follow mode: The DS2-A will follow your pan and tilt movements
    Three-axis: Gives you full control, allowing you to pan, tilt, and roll

ikan DS2-A Beholder reviews

DS2-A Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal and 5-Section Monopod Extension Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gimbal Set up I've been using this kit on my GH5 and it works great. I usually operate with my Canon 16-25 and 24-105 lenses and don't have any balance issues, etc. The extension pole is great for getting for low/high shots.
