ikan DS2-A Beholder Overview

  • 1Description

The ikan DS2-A Beholder Gimbal Ring Kit consists of the ikan DS2-A 3-axis gimbal stabilizer and the ikan Gimbal Ring Handle. Combining these two gives you a full 360° grip to handle the Beholder stabilizer, increasing overall stability and reducing fatigue with the wider center of gravity. See below for more information on the items included in this kit.

  • 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
    Designed for Multiple Camera Types
    With a payload up to 5 pounds, the DS2-A can stabilize a wide range of DSLR and mirrorless cameras including the Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 6D, Canon 7D, Sony a6300, Sony a7S II, Panasonic GH5, GoPro, and select smartphones
    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
    Other Features
    • Durable all-aluminum construction
    • 360° movement from pan axis
    • Multiple modes of operation

  • Ring Handle for One-Handed Gimbals

    The ikan Ring Handle for One-Handed Gimbals lets you get a grip on your gimbal from nearly any angle. Three rubberized grips (two for the sides, one forms a top handle) are included for easy hand-holding. The wide grip area not only widens the center of gravity, but also provides grip area for operator handoffs for otherwise impossible shots. The included feet can stand the ring handle with gimbal up on a flat surface, either when not shooting or for an impromptu locked-down shot. The gimbal itself slots into the handle via quick release, and the entire unit can be disassembled for space saving when not in use.

    Compatible with all single-handed gimbals
    Allows for alternative shooting styles
    Durable lightweight aluminum
    Adds enhanced control and maneuverability
    Comfort grip handles help reduce fatigue and loss of grip
    25mm-thick tubing for clamping accessories
