new All Steady 6 Pro 3-axis gimbal from Kickstarter campaign

About 2 months ago I ordered and paid for a All Steady 6 Pro Deluxe gimbal. A very nice unit. They are now just starting to ship. I am willing to sell my place in line (#125) and the All Steady 6 for a reasonable price. I was going to buy a Sony A7s and a lens to use on the gimbal and ran out of funds. So instead of getting the gimbal now I will wait until I can get the camera, lens and gimbal.

From TurboAce The AllSteady 6 changes the way you create, even if you own a much more expensive and larger gimbal, you will discover how it will increase your production value. It is about half the weight but it can handle heavy task. For example, it can carry lens such as the Canon 24-105mm, 24-70mm or even the 70-200mm and larger cameras like the Red Epic. Like the large Ronin, Movi and AllSteady 7 gimbbal, it is follow focus ready. Unfortunately, if you own one of these large gimbals, you have probably discovered its limitation. They are heavy and bulky and you have to hold them far away from your body and that feels even heavier. Try holding a fully rigged Ronin/AllSteady 7 without a vest for more than 15 minutes or even with a light 5D setup. The AllSteady 5 and other mid sized DSLR gimbals are much lighter and versatile but they are lacking in many ways. The AllSteady is light but with all the features of a large gimbal.

The AllSteady 6 is fully tool less whereas the 5 still need tool for vertical CG camera adjustment.
The AllSteady 6 can shoot in upright orientation in the inverted mode. Something the Ronin, Movi and AllSteady 5, 7 can't do so you are stuck having to flip them in post.
The AllSteady 6 has a gimble release that allows it to be mounted on a tripod, slider, crane or multirotor in seconds. Example, you can use wireless control to shoot photos or videos where it is not possible such behind the pastor's podium in a wedding ceremony.
The AllSteady 6 can carry follow focus system which the 5 can not do to stay balanced. Only the super large gimbals like the Ronin, Movi and the AllSteady 7 has that feature.
The AllSteady 6 can carry large lens, even the 24-105mm, 24-70mm F2.8 or the 70-200mm F2.8 which only the super large gimbals like the Ronin, Movi and AllSteady 7 can hold.
The AllSteady 6 can be folded down and its handle can be quickly detached without tools to shrink down to less than half the size of a packed down Ronin/AllSteady 7 for travelling.
The AllSteady 6 has an optional water proof carrying case that is less than half the size of the Ronin case. Whereas the AllSteady 5 has no case available.
The AllSteady 6 can pan 360 degrees continuously which is something the AllSteady 5 can't do since it does not have a slip ring. This feature allow you to mount it on a tripod or drone.
The AllSteady 6 is more powerful and it has larger motors than the AllSteady 5. Motor size 6212 vs 5208 is a big difference.
The AllSteady 6 has the wires concealed for reliability whereas the Allsteady 5 wires are mostly exposed.
The AllSteady has a vertical 3D top mounting bracket to fit even the taller Nikon cameras body.
The AllSteady 6 has anti rotation stoppers build in the unit so they are not in the way. The AllSteady 5 has them outside.
The AllSteady 6 has square carbon booms with patent pending internal locking mechanism to prevent accidental miss alignment. The AllSteady 5 has round booms that may slip off alignment with heavy torque applied.
The AllSteady 6 has the optional dual tilt bearing cage and lock which make the gimbal extremely durable, whereas the 5 has single bearing and without lock.
The AllSteady 6 can handle bigger cameras. It can carry the Red/Blackmagic so it is future proof. The AllSteady 5 can only handle DSLR with very basic setup.

For more info go to:

Asking $1427. Basically you are getting it for the Kickstater price. It can be shipped directly to you from Turbo Ace as they have not shipped it to me as of April 24. TurboAce can balance it for your camera. So it is truly brand new and unused.

It is the ALLSTEADY-6PRO DELUXE and includes: Toolless 3-Axis Gimbal with 32bit Processor + Upgraded Motors + Tilt-Axis Dual Bearing Cage + Joystick with 5 Modes + Monitor Bracket with Articulating Arm + Follow Focus Ready Bracket + 2 Smart Batteries + Charger + Foldable Tuning Stand + Heavy Duty Waterproof Case
