About the Ikan DS2-A Gimbal

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.

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 including the Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 6D, Sony a6300,, Sonyt a7SII, Panasonic GH5, GoPro, and smartphone.

Advanced Stabilization:

Using a 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder, the DS2-A uses an adaptive PID algorithm to produce an efficient handheld stabilizer. This means that the gimbal will respond faster, balance easier, and have greater battery life.

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 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 has a 60 second auto-sweep feature that allows you to program a 60 second movement. Position the camera at the end point, and then press the mode button 5 times. Then, position the camera at the start point and let the DS2 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 handle conveniently provides you with the battery life and current operating mode.

Easy to Use:

With a newly designed quick-release baseplate system, the DS2 is easy to balance without 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-A to a tripod, jib, or dual handle support systems such as the Ikan DGH.
