The PIVOT is compatible with Manfrotto 501PL series mounting plates
Ikan announces the release of the PIVOT 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer. The product enables complete 360º movement on all 3 axes. The PIVOT enters the gimbal market sporting an 8 lbs (3.6 kg) maximum payload, angled arm, advanced image stabilization and more. With the increased maximum payload of 8 lbs (3.6 kg), the PIVOT supports a wide range of DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, camcorders and even small cinema cameras. The angled arm elevates the camera above the roll motor for an unobstructed view of the camera’s screen. Using an adaptive algorithm, Ikan has improved the response speed and torque.
“Our team was able to respond to industry and customer needs with a top-of-the-line gimbal at an affordable price,” says Product Manager, Kevin Lu. “We’re excited to introduce several new features while maintaining many of the same qualities of our previous gimbal products.”
The pressure sensitive joystick allows precise manual control over the gimbal movements. An OLED status display screen conveniently indicates battery life, operation mode, and joystick direction. The PIVOT is compatible with Manfrotto 501PL series mounting plates. The gimbal’s battery holder is compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. As a companion to the PIVOT, Ikan will also release an IOS / Android app in March, which supports advanced calibration to optimize performance.
The compact design features and lightweight carbon fiber handle make the PIVOT suitable for a variety of uses. The latest Ikan gimbal is a product for the amateur and professional videographer alike.
Ikan will showcase the new PIVOT gimbal at WPPI in Las Vegas (booth 1209), NV from February 26-28, 2018.
