Relentless have announced a price of $2300 for their anticipated 3-axis handheld stabilizing system, the DEFY G2 Gimbal. It will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, July 9th from http://defygimbal.com/
This gimbal designed for camera and lens arrangements with a combined weight of two pounds and under, such as the new Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera.
We are working closely with Drew Janes from http://relentless.tv/ so will bring you more on this shortly.
The DEFY G2 features a full 3-axis control, two modes of operation: “Follow Me” and “Stabilize”, and integrated on/off switch. Purchase includes the gimbal, two LIPO batteries for approximately four hours of collective operation, LIPO battery charging station, and a crushproof/waterproof PELICAN case.
The DEFY G2 is comprised of lightweight, hexagonal carbon fiber tubes and high quality aluminum components. Uniquely incorporating a limited number of easy to adjust thumb screws into its design in place of hex bolts, users can field assemble and balance without tools in just minutes. Filming with the DEFY G2 is equally easy, allowing nearly anyone with little to no training to use. The DEFY G2 is scalable, meaning it can quickly adapt to various cameras and lenses during a shoot due to the ease of its field balancing.
Additional sizes and configurations will be announced shortly, including the 3-axis DEFY G5, the comparable DSLR version, as well as the DEFY G10, designed to fit larger cameras such as the Red Digital Cinema Camera.
We had already seen a first footage example and now can’t wait to get try this out with the bmpc.
