Brushless gimbal for system cameras like the Sony Nex 5/7, Lumix GH2/GH3, or Blackmagic Pocket.
Extremely stiff structure through multiple axle-bearing as well as a modular set of dampers.
Precise and powerful motors to stabilise cameras with a weight up to 850 grammes securely even during fast movements.
Available with two or three axes. An optional handheld rack is currently being planned.
Without Brushless Controller (AlexMos) / Encoder
During the design phase of the Dragon, the utmost importance was attached to a free of float and torsion-resistant mechanism which is crucial for the precise functioning of a brushless gimbal. Our main objective was maximum rigidity at minimum weight.
The Dragon gimbal breaks with a lot of traditions typical for other brushless gimbals. The holder, for one, was designed as a highly elaborate lattice work instead of a tube bar prone to torsion and oscillation. The use of right angels and parallel strutting has been widely avoided, thus providing maximum rigidity.
Despite the fact that a simpler bearing of both the pitch and the roll axis would allow an easier adjustment we decided to consequently renounce it in favour of vibration reduction. Instead of that, the roll axis is outfitted with a single, the pitch axis even with a double counter bearing. Thus, the swing and the fork mutually stabilise themselves while relieving the motor bearings.
With a clear width of 153 mm and its barycentre positioned at most 41 mm above the base plate the gimbal is suitable for system cameras like the Sony Nex 5/7, Lumix GH2/GH3, Blackmagic Pocket, or similar cameras with a maximum weight of 850 grammes. All versions of the GoPro can be used in the acryl casing with the tripod adapter.
The set of dampers can be outfitted with 4 or 8 gel dampers. The gimbal comes with 4 dampers that grant an absorbability of 9 to 10 dB within a frequency range from 50 Hz (accepted load: 2.5 kg) to 95 Hz (accepted load: 0.5 kg). Therefore, an upgrade to 8 dampers is only necessary if high-frequency vibration keeps penetrating heavy cameras. The design will prevent the gimbal from breaking even if the gel dampers get damaged.
Textile rubber strips embedded in the carrier plate provide a firm hold which prevents the camera from turning itself out of position or falling off.
