The technological advancements in camera stabilization from feature length filmmakers is now available in a single handle camera stabilizer. The Beholder EC1 Camera Stabilizer is the next evolution in the Beholder stabilizer family. The EC1 is similar in weight and size to the Beholder DS1 at 2.2 pounds.
The EC1 can support up to 4.5 pounds of camera opening up an impressive range of medium/small camera bodies, lens adapters, and lenses.
The EC1’s tech operates on a whole new level of vibration free stability with 360 degrees of rotation on all three axes. The Beholder EC1 is built around the next advancement in gyro sensor technology, giving the EC1 greater perception, and ability to adapt to change. Built into the handle is an OLED status display that will show mode selection, battery life, and joystick.
The technology used in the EC1 to help it maintain stability are encoders which are a motor with positional sensors along the motor's radius. This system allows the stabilizer to know the motor's exact position and to auto invert. This information along with other data flows into an adaptive stabilization algorithm to generate an error correction. This technology gives the EC1 a 0.01 degrees of angle error and greater reliability. An encoder motor uses a field-oriented control strategy which means the motor can produce an even torque curve and increase battery life up to 6 times. The EC1 can run for an incredible 20 hours on a single charge of the three 18650 lipo batteries. The stabilizer is tool-less with a four axes adjustable gimbal. The Beholder EC1 gimbal, is highly adjustable, easy to balance, and has reference markings on each axis.
On the bottom of the handle is the battery cap with a 3/8th mount, and on either side of the handle is a 1/4th mount for accessories like a microphone or cine arm.
The quick release plate has been upgraded to the 577 quick release plate.
The stabilizer has five built in modes, Lock Mode, Pan Follow Mode, Follow Mode, Follow all Axis Mode and Home (return to starting position). Also the EC1 can Point and Lock which means an operator can manually adjust the gimbal and the stabilizer will hold the position.
