    Yeah, and how big of second mortgage do you need to take on your house to pay for it along with their new flight controller system. I'm willing to bet it's at least as pricey as a Zenmuse and probably more, much more...

    It's not going to be cheap. But then, this is designed and engineered for the cinema market, not the hobby market. Compared to a $20k jib a gimbal like this is a no brainer.

    "Any camera, any lens", that's a tall order. Think this one's going beyond MC use only. Guess we'll see it next week.
















    nice video but was the guy hunting that young couple with the compass?

    Hope these guys from freefly and also photohigher are price pitching correctly since the Brushless gimbal revolution is well in effect.

    I think, several simple brushless gimbals will do the work for cameras sized around NEX5 & NEX6 better than anything on the market right now.

    CineStar is offering the third axis which is not available yet on the third party gimbals. And if a camera around 5-6 lbs can be adopted to new CineStar Gimbal, than it can be a killer.

    I suspect there will still be a difference in performance between the brushless gimbals and the high end stepper motor gimbals but the difference for the majority of people will be so close it wont be an issue.

    Ben, when will you have one in the air. I've watched this a few times now, and its unbeatable.
