NAB 2016 Review – 3 Axis Gimbal – Beholder MS1 from Ikan
The Beholder Gimbal MS1 is a 3-axis handheld camera stabilizer designed for small DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. The Beholder uses brushless gimbal motors to stabilize movement on tilt-and-roll axes and provide smooth image capture while shooting
handheld, walking, or in any situation in which the camera is moving. The MS1 can support up to an 860 grams camera like the Sony a7S, RX-100 the sony a6000 and sony a6300 , Panasonic GH4 and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The gimbal’s ¼” – 20 thread mount at the bottom of the handle can be used for mounting the MS1 to a monopod, tripod or slider. The built-in 5-way joystick control 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 are a quick-release balance plate, an offset camera mount, an onboard USB LED Light, a USB cable for charging, and a travel case.
I tried mounting my own sony a6300 on the beholder and it required no tools and in about a minute the camera was ready to go. the gimbal felt steady and I liked the fact that the gimbal can be flipped and the camera can be held closer to the ground.
the beholder can be pushed directly from Ikan or from the manufacturer which is called team rebel design at b&h and the rest of the online sellers.
