Besteady One brushless gimbal
$1,990 USD O.B.O.
I found myself needing a gimbal to support larger cameras, so Iím selling my used Besteady One that Iíve been using with my Panasonic GH3. I purchased it via Quickstarter on 2013 without the factory handles, so I customized my own using express35 parts
What I liked the most about it:
ē It takes cameras up to 4.4lb (2kg).
ē The balancing is tool-less since it uses thumbscrews
ē It has up to 3 profiles that you can switch in between just by clicking on the control button.
ē The footage is very smooth and I only had issues when I didnít balance the camera properly.
ē It is very lightweight compared to the rest in this range, around 9lbs.
ē I was able to change the zoom of the lens without rebalancing to tilt axis. I used the Panasonic 14-140 lens which extends as it zooms. I balanced it for a 35mm focal range and I was able to work on the 14-50mm range without a problem.
ē Battery life. I was able to shoot a 12 hour wedding with just 2 batteries making sure I didnít have it on when it wasnít needed, but with the 4 batteries Iím including you could work on long shoot or an entire wedding without a problem.
ē If you need a more free access to the top part of the camera, you can take the top part of the cage off.
ē No need to do any programming, just tweak settings in the desktop manager application.
The foam of the base where you seat the camera on is damaged, so I just added a piece of plastic to make sure it doesnít twists on me.
Iím including the following:
1. Besteady One
2. Cinestar adapter (for drone use)
3. Express35 Rig (the besteady is attached to this via 4 thumbscrews)
4. 4 batteries. I purchased 2 extra batteries myself, the black ones
5. 2 chargers. I purchased 1 extra charger.
6. Silk mini-quick release adapter. I do have the quick release plate, I just forgot to take it out for the pictures.
7. Xit XTHC40 Medium Hard Case. Forgot to take a picture of the actual case but Iím adding a stock one.
I spent $220USD on the 2 extra batteries and charger.
