Looking to expand your creativity? Combine the Ikan Beholder DS2-A with a strong, lightweight, and portable quick adjust monopod. Take your 3-Axis gimbal to a whole new level.

Jib/Operator

Mounting a Beholder to an MPA70 monopod adds stability, control, and delivers a natural feel when operating a 3-Axis gimbal. No jib? No problem. By extending the Ikan Beholder out on the monopod, you can create jib-like shots in a matter of seconds with no extra gear or complicated setups.

Drone Style Shot

Shoot among the trees in a drone-like fashion by raising your Ikan Beholder on the MPA70 monopod. Give your shots the look of a drone without the risk of flight and record usable audio without loud propeller noise.

Strength
Meets Portability

Constructed out of aluminum and weighing only 1.59 lbs., the monopod is still light enough not to weigh you down.

Strength Meets Portability

Twist to Lock

The MPA70 expands through 5 different sections. Each one features a twist lock knob for quick height adjustments.

Twist to Lock

Flip & Mount

The base of the monopod contains a 1/4"-20 screw that can be flipped around and converted into 3/8"-16.

Angled Motor Arm

The DS2-A is the first Ikan Beholder gimbal to feature an angled roll motor arm that gives you a better view of the camera’s screen. This makes it easier to frame your shots and follow the action.

Strength Meets Portability

60 Second Auto-Sweep

The DS2-A has a 60 second auto-sweep feature that allows you to program a 60 second movement. Position the camera at the end point, and then press the mode button 5 times. Then, position the camera at the start point and let the DS2-A do the rest! The camera will move from one point to the other in a 60 second time frame.

360 Motors

Advanced Stabilization

Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the DS2-A uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce an efficient handheld stabilizer. This means that the gimbal will respond faster, balance easier, and have greater battery life.

Advanced Stabilization

Multiple Follow Modes

The DS2-A features 3 different follow modes. In Yaw-Axis Follow Mode, the DS2-A will only follow your Pan movements. In Pitch and Yaw-Axis Follow mode, the DS2-A will follow your Pan and Tilt Movements. Finally, the 3-Axis Follow Mode gives you full control allowing you to Pan, Tilt, and Roll.
