The ikan Gimbal Kit includes the EC1 Beholder 3-axis gimbal stabilizer with encoders and a dual-grip gimbal handle. The EC1 gimbal is a 3-axis handheld camera stabilizer designed for medium to small DSLR and mirrorless cameras weighing up to 4.5 lb. The gimbal features three 360° rotating brushless motors to stabilize movement on tilt-and-roll axes and provide smooth image capture while shooting handheld, while walking, or in any situation in which the camera is moving. The 3/8"-16 thread mount at the bottom of the gimbal handle allows you to securely mount the EC1 Beholder to a tripod, jib, or the included dual-grip handle support system.

Constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum, the dual-grip handle is specifically designed to control the Beholder gimbal with ease. It increases the stability and offers over-handed or under-handed gimbal operation modes. The built-in tabletop feet allow you to easily calibrate your gimbal hands-free and provide a firm base to set it on when not in use.
