The ikan Beholder EC1 is designed specifically for professional filmmakers looking for a single handheld stabiliser for a large range of medium and small cameras. The Beholder EC1 is lightweight, easy to use, and can be carried in the supplied case or a small photographer bag.

360° Motors
The 3-Axis gimbal features three 360° rotating brushless motors that give you a limitless range of motion. With a payload range of 0.9-2 kg, the EC1 has the ability to stabilise a wide range of today’s popular DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Sony a6300, Sony a7SII, Panasonic GH4, and the Canon 5D Mark III are just a few cameras that the EC1 can handle.

Advanced Stabilization
Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the EC1 uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce a reliably efficient handheld stabiliser.

Lock Mode
In Lock Mode, the Yaw, Pitch, & 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.

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.

Auto Inversion
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.

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 Points
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.

  • Q:

    Hi,
    Can this gimbal be used with a very light camera such as a Sony Actioncam?

    • A:

      Not an ideal combination. It is Not just a matter of 'being below the maximum weight as per previous answer. The gimbal is calibrated to work with a maximum and a minimum load. The stated MINIMUM weight for this gimbal is about 800 gm

      A:

      The EC1 should be able to support the Sony Action cam, it's well under the weight limit.
