A New Gimbal DSLR/BlackMagic/RED From Above

We have just finished our new 3 axis gimbal for larger cameras like Black Magic or RED.
Gimbal is designed for professional filming and photographing .

It has many innovative solutions.

Gimbal, among other, stands out its modularity.
Without problem you can mount a long lens and thanks to using standard frame tubes with a diameter of 15mm (15 mm Rod Support ) and spacing 60mm, you can mount the mechanism of focus and zoom.

In contrast to other gimbals available on the market , Gimbal DSLR / BlackMagic / RED From Above has two synchronized motors on the pitch axis . The advantage of this solution is easier mounting and balancing of the camera, because due to the symmetrical, bilateral placement of motors, gimbal weight is evenly distributed, not leaning on so any direction . When the gimbal has one motor, it overloads on the whole device, causing subsidence of one, heavier, side. The use of two motors on the pitch axis maximize the potential of the device. Two motors have similar power compared to one large, but they are lighter. It causes lower weight of the gimbal, which is important when we use it in a flying platforms . Thanks to precise synchronized motors on the pitch axis we can get maximum torque, which allows you to work even with large lenses.

The specially designed vertical arm has place to mount inside the gimbal controller. The arm construction removes heat away from the electronics to the aluminum arm .

Here are some photos of this gimbal:







Gimbal is based on the ALEXMOS 32 bit controller .

Technical specifications:
Weight - 1,6 kg
The materials - aluminum , carbon fiber
The maximum weight of the camera with accessories - 7







Advantages of the Gimbal DSLR / BlackMagic / RED From Above:

1. The high efficiency of the Pitch axis drive.
2. 12 - wire slipring on the Yaw axis.
3. Flexibility in the choice of the camera (GoPro to RED).
4. Possibility of the extension of the tubes allows to mount long lenses.
5. Cables secured in sheaths.
6. By designing a frame for BlackMagic and the RED, camera can be mounted to the upper and lower mounting assembly which improves the stability of the camera.

Here are first tests of this gimbal with Black Magic:

X8 + BMCC (3 min 49 sec)


Octo X8 + 3-axis gimbal 2 (2 min 17 sec)


Octo X8 + 3-axis gimbal (3 min 33 sec)


Tomorrow I'll put few more videos from Black Magic and maybe some more information about our new folding frame.

Today we made some videos with our 3axis gimbal and Black Magic Cinema Camera. You can watch it here:

Gimbal 3-axis - first video with BMCC (9 min 32 sec)


Cool thing about this gimbal is fact that if you use Black Magic it's very easy to pull out the SSD drive without dismantling the camera.



Next photos and videos soon.

During the flight I couldn't find a convenient way to fly and simultaneously check the flight parameters.
To make the job easier I made handle for the Ipad.







With this handle, Ipad is attached to the apparatus, I can conveniently fly and I always have all the necessary information in sight.

Today we made next video with our gimbal and Black Magic.
On the left is video from GoPro showing how gimbal works, on the right is video from BMCC. I think the stabilization is very satisfying. What do you think about it?

For our gimbal we make handgrib too. We were looking for a good battery for handheld gimbal and I think we found it.





This battery stands out from others that it has charge indicator.
It has the protection from excessive discharge, if it's discharge, the power is disconnected automatically.
It's very good solution.

Recently we made mounting for SDI-HDMI converter for our gimbal. It's simple, light and well does the job.

Yes, in Poland is a little high tax but if you aren't from UE or if you are in UE but you have UE tax number you buy without tax.

Today we made safety test of our platform.
We removed one prop and we flew without it. Sometimes it happens that one motor stops working and we have a problem because platform falls to the ground. Fortunately the X8 configuration worked well and we didn't damage neither gimbal nor Black Magic :-)
