The Beholder DS2-A is designed specifically for professional filmmakers looking for a single handheld stabilizer for a large range of small cameras weighing up to 4 lbs. The DS2-A features a unique angled roll motor arm, which allows you to have a better view of the camera’s screen while using the gimbal. In addition, the DS2-A also features a 60 second Auto-Sweep mode, which allows you to program a 60 second camera movement. The Beholder DS2-A is lightweight, easy to use, and can be carried in your camera bag. It is also versatile enough to be used with a DSLR, mirrorless camera, GoPro, or smartphone.
Angled Motor Arm
The DS2-A is the first Ikan Beholder gimbal to feature an angled roll motor arm that gives you a better view of the camera’s screen. This makes it easier to frame your shots and follow the action.
The DS2-A features a 360 degree rotation brushless motor on the yaw axis for a higher range of mobility.
Designed for DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras
With a payload of up to 4 lbs. the DS2-A has the ability to stabilize a wide range of today’s popular DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Canon 5D mark IV, Canon 6D, Canon 7D, Sony a6300, Sony a7SII, Panasonic GH5 and even as small as a GoPro or Smartphone.
Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the DS2-A uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce a reliably efficient handheld stabilizer. This means that the gimbal will respond faster, balance easier, and have greater batter life.
In Lock Mode, the Yaw, Pitch, and 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.
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.
Multiple Follow Modes
The DS2-A features 3 different follow modes. In Yaw-Axis Follow Mode, the DS2-A will only follow your Pan movements. In Pitch and Yaw-Axis Follow mode, the DS2-A will follow your Pan and Tilt Movements. Finally, the 3-Axis Follow Mode gives you full control allowing you to Pan, Tilt, and Roll.
60 Second Auto-Sweep
The DS2-A allows you program a 60 seconds movement. Position the camera at the end point then press the mode button 5 times. Then position the camera at the start point and let the DS2-A do the rest! The camera will move from one point to the other in a 60 second time frame.
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 DS2-A is easy to balance without the need of any tools.
Multiple Mounting Options
The DS2-A 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 DS2 to a tripod, jib, or dual handle support system such as the Ikan DGH.
