DS1

The Beholder Gimbal DS1 is a 3-axis handheld camera stabilizer designed for large DSLRs and mirrorless cameras to achieve smooth, stable footage. The Beholder uses brushless gimbal motors to stabilize movement on tilt-and-roll axes and provide incredibly smooth image capture while shooting handheld, while walking, or in any situation in which the camera is moving. The DS1 can support up to 3.7 pounds (1700 grams) of camera. A number of cameras are well-suited for the DS1 including the Sony a7S, Panasonic GH4, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, and Canon 5D Mark III. The gimbal's 3/8"-16 thread mount at the bottom of the handle is perfect for mounting the DS1 to a monopod, tripod or slider. The built-in 5-way joystick control offers complete command over pan/tilt and mode choice. Select from "Follow," "Lock," and adjust Pan-and-Tilt. A USB port on the handle can be used to power a small LED light or your smartphone. Included with the stabilizer is a quick-release balance plate, an offset camera mount, a USB Power Supply for charging, and a travel case.

Supports a Canon 5D Mark III

The Beholder Gimbal is perfect for DSLR and mirrorless cameras such as the Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 70D, Sony a7S, Sony a7S II, and the Panasonic GH4. Max Capacity: 3.7 lbs (1700 g)
