Finding a good working, reliable 3-axis gimbal for the Canon 5D Mark III or a Lumix GH3/4 can be quite a challenge. When looking to purchase a gimbal of this caliber the cost of these types of gimbals usually prevents a potential owner from the old “try them all, keep the good one” method like one might do with a GoPro sized gimbal. Fortunately, in this case, iFlight sent me one to review so hopefully I can save you some money and time.
The “Full Upgrade” version of the iFlight BetView 5D/GH3 gimbal is a whole new beast compared to it’s predecessor. iFlight have lightened the gimbal, added a huge pan motor with a slip-ring and generally made what was considered a good gimbal into a true winner with this new version! It’s able to shoot in one-man operation in “Follow me” mode or even heading lock or what I love to use it as a two-man operation where this gimbal really excels! The iFlight BetView full upgrade 3-axis gimbal handled everything I threw at it and will be come one of my work horse gimbals!
The iFlight Betview 5D/GH3 gimbal is Alexmos based, but comes fully pre-programmed from the factory. All you will need to so is hook up a receiver to the inputs and you have a fully operational two-man 3 axis gimbal operation. The gimbal is shipped with the latest firmware pre installed.
