Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the EC1 uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce a reliably efficient handheld stabilizer.
In Lock Mode, the Yaw, Pitch, and Roll axis work together to keep the camera pointed in one direction. The camera’s composition will stay the same no matter how you move the handle.
Point & Lock
Quickly lock your camera into any position by manually pointing and holding it in any direction. After a few seconds, the camera will lock and hold its position until it is reset back to default.
Switch to Inverted Mode at any time by simply flipping the handle over the camera. Inverted Mode can be operated in conjunction with any of the Lock and Follow Modes.
Multiple Follow Modes
The EC1 features 3 different follow modes. In Yaw-Axis Follow Mode, the EC1 will only follow your Pan movements. In Pitch and Yaw-Axis Follow mode, the EC1 will follow your Pan and Tilt Movements. Finally, the 3-Axis Follow Mode gives you full control allowing you to Pan, Tilt, and Roll.
Lock Mode will allow the camera to hold a certain direction, and will not follow, pan, or tilt.
Pan-Follow Mode allows the gimbal to follow pan axis, and hold the tilt position.
Follow Mode allows the camera to follow both tilt and pan directions.
3-Axis Follow Mode
3-Axis Follow Mode has no restrictions as it allows the camera to follow pan, tilt, and roll.
OLED Status Display
A display screen located on the back of the handle conveniently provides you with information on the battery life and operating mode.
Easy to Use
With a newly designed quick-release baseplate system, the EC1 is easy to balance without the need of any tools.
Multiple Mounting Options
The EC1 handle comes with two 1/4-20 mounts that are perfect for mounting accessories such as a light, microphone, or monitor. A 3/8-16 thread located on the bottom allows you to securely mount the EC1 to a tripod, jib, or dual handle support system such as the Ikan DGH.
