Awarded best gimbal AND best pro-video equipment (out of 1,700 products) at NAB. It's simply the best professional camera stabilizer. Here's why:

  • Original Design: Designed from the ground up specifically for cinematography, not after thought like the rest of the gimbals on the market which put a handle onto the copter gimbal system.
  • Optically-centered: To minimize sensor movement avoid robotic look in footage found with other gimbals.
  • Eye-level Filming: Your hands is at the lens level, not a foot higher like other gimbals. This make shooting a lot less fatigue. 
  • Quick Balancing: It's a lot easier to balance each axis individually than making all 3 axis balance at the same time. Lens change is easier with simple adjustment of a single axis due to optical center design.
  • Flat-bottom Design: You can put the gimbal down between shots without needing a stand.
  • Intuitive Tilt Handle: The right handle of the gimbal acts as a joystick for tilting the camera up and down. This is the best loved feature.
  • Seamless Suitcase Mode Transition: Going from eye-level to low mode seamlessly by just letting go of the left handle.
  • Absolute Encoders: Prevent motors from losing their position during a bump. Improve stabilization precision. Adjust Dutch angle within a second by holding at the desired angle.
  • Custom sliprings: Prevent wires from being tangled and the only handheld gimbal to allow 360, unlimited roll.
  • Power Management: The first handheld gimbal on the market with power management.
  • Custom Firmware
  • Made In USA

How to order: 

1) Choose the Helix model. This option indicate the width between the arm that support the gimbal. Note: If you are using the EXO17 vest with a gimbal other than the Helix, either option will work.

2) Choose the spring canister strength. Remember the longer the arm you choose, although it will increase your boom range it will reduce the payload capability. Check the chart above to see what spring strength is appropriate for your camera load.

3) Choose the arm length. Measure your set up and find the distance from the handle to the back of the Helix so that you can determine how long the arm you need to choose. The longer the arm length, the wider the boom range but the less payload the spring can support.
