360 Motors

The 3-Axis gimbal features three 360 degree rotating brushless motors that give you a limitless range of motion.

Designed for DSLR & Mirrorless Cameras

With a payload of up to 4.5 lbs., the EC1 has the ability to stabilize a wide range of today's popular DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Sony a6300, Sony a7SII, Panasonic GH4, and the Canon 5D Mark III are just a few cameras that the EC1 can handle.

Advanced Stabilization

Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the EC1 uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce a reliably efficient handheld stabilizer.

Additional Features:

  • Lock Mode

    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.
  • Point & Lock

    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.
  • Auto Inversion

    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 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 
  • 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 EC1 is easy to balance without the need of any tools.
  • Multiple Mounting Options

    The EC1 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 EC1 to a tripod, jib, or dual handle support system such as the Ikan DGH.
