DEFY Gimbal Lineup Announced

 

defyThe folks at Relentless, Inc. announced the lineup for their DEFY Gimbal products today. Here’s the scoop:

G2 Gimbal – $2,300 gets you a 3-axis stabilized rig for smaller micro four-thirds cameras like the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema, Sony Nex, etc. Ostensibly, that’s what this test footage was shot with.

G5 Gimbal – Coming soon, this is a larger version of the G2, sized for DSLRs.

G10 – An even bigger version, for cameras the size of the RED, etc.

There will also be a 2-axis stabilized rig for $1,800 that will fulfill the promise Relentless made at NAB.

Steadicam-style rigs have had a lock on the handheld stabilizer market for a long time. Relentless, Inc. seems to be demonstrating that the bits and pieces (gyros, etc.) are now readily available enough for other manufacturers to develop innovative products.

    Great workshop by Drew Janes on the DEFY G-5 and G-2 camera gimbals in Toronto on Friday, December 13, 2013. It was part of Sony’s and Vistek’s CineAlta Training Event. I was in the front for this interesting presentation.
