Ikan's New PIVOT Gimbal Can Handle DSLRs and Cinema Cameras Up to 8lbs
With a max payload of 8lbs, ikan's PIVOT looks like a real contender among handheld gimbals.
Here at NAB, Ikan's Brian Kennedy chatted with us about their new 3-axis gimbal, PIVOT. It has some pretty impressive features, like advanced image stabilization, a pressure sensitive joystick, and an angled arm designed specifically to not obstruct your view of the camera's screen, but perhaps the most exciting feature is its max payload. This thing can handle up to 8 lbs., which means that you can not only use it with your DSLRs and smaller mirrorless cameras but it can take your smaller cinema cameras, like a Canon C200.
- Max payload of 8 pounds (3.6kg)
- Angled arm for unobstructed view of the camera's screen
- Advanced image stabilization
- iOS and Android app
- Carbon fiber handle
- Full 360-degree movements on all three axis
- Compatible with Manfrotto 501PL series mounting plates
- Battery holder is compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
- OLED display screen
The PIVOT is available now for $750. Ikan is also offering a PIVOT bundle, which includes a wireless follow-focus for $999.
