Via ikan press:
HOUSTON, Texas, (Apr. 11, 2016) — At the 2016 NAB Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 16-21, Ikan International Corp will be one of the first to present a complete line of handheld gimbal stabilizers designed for cameras of any size. At Ikan’s booth (C9911), NAB attendees will be able to gain complete access to put these gimbals to the test. Highlighted in this year’s lineup include the FLY-X3-PLUS (for smartphones), FLY-X3-GO (for GoPros), MS1 (for mirrorless cameras), and the DS1 (for DSLR cameras). Not to be left out, the newly released WenPod MD2 has been generating excitement from all over the world and will be sure to impress.
The FLY-X3-PLUS is one of the smoothest and best performing handheld gimbals on the market and turns your mobile phone or GoPro camera into a powerful image capture tool, shooting fluid professional video and eliminating shaky camera moves. Another product from the FLY-X3 family is the new FLY-X3-GO that offers creative mounting and smooth operation for your GoPro. It provides better control and stability for those unique shots that set it apart from other competitors. The FLY-X3-GO can also be mounted on a monopod, boom pole or roll bar mount. Best of all, this GoPro gimbal stabilizer comes pre-programmed to use straight out of the box!
Stepping up to the larger handheld gimbals, Ikan provides the MS1 Beholder Gimbal for Mirrorless Cameras up to 1.9 pounds. The MS1 is equipped with a 3-axis gyro stabilized brushless motor to help make balancing the camera a quick and easy setup. The slightly larger DS1 Beholder Gimbal is designed for large DSLRs and mirrorless cameras to achieve smooth, stable footage. The DS1 uses brushless gimbal motors to stabilize movement on tilt-and-roll axes and provide incredibly smooth image capture while shooting in any situation in which the camera is moving and can support up to 3.7 pounds (1700 grams) of camera. Lastly, the WenPod MD2 provided by Ikan is a next generation 3-axis gimbal with advanced A.I. technology that will bring a videographer's work to the next level and has a load capacity of 6.6 pounds.
Product Manager Julio Ramon is excited for this year’s lineup that will give customers a chance to feel the quality that Ikan gimbals provide. “We were able to listen to our customers and provide products that truly fit every step of their stabilization needs,” Ramon stated. “It’s exciting to be leading the pack regarding stabilization and be one of the few that can outfit a videographer for each of their devices.”
