The ikan EC1 Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Kit with Dual Grip Handles is designed specifically for professional filmmakers looking for a single handheld stabilizer for a large range of medium and small cameras weighing up to 4.5 lb (2 kg), such as the Sony a6300, Sony a7S II, Panasonic GH4, and the Canon 5D Mark III. The Beholder EC1 is lightweight, easy to use, and can be carried in the supplied case or a small photographer bag.

The 3-Axis gimbal features three 360° rotating brushless motors that provide a limitless range of motion. Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the EC1 uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce a reliably efficient handheld stabilizer.

In Lock Mode, the Yaw, Pitch, and Roll axis work together to keep the camera pointed in one direction. Framing will stay the same no matter how you move the handle. 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. 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.

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.

A display screen located on the back of the handle conveniently provides you with information on the battery life and operating mode. With a newly designed quick-release baseplate system, the EC1 is easy to balance without the need for tools. The EC1 handle includes (2) 1/4"-20 side mounts that are ideal 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.
