While this isn’t the Gimbal that LaForet has help to pioneer, Relentless Inc. is launching what they claim to be an affordable gimbal at $3200–and preorders have begun. It’s called the DEFY G5; and it is a 3 axis stabilization system that can handle up to five pounds of weight. They’re also stating that it is quick to adapt to situations in the field and can be switched up with little or no tools in the field. According to them, “New features include an integrated dovetail slide that allows users to precisely adjust the camera for even faster, more accurate balancing. This cuts down on the time needed to prep for shots, therefore keeping the entire crew on time and able to capture each shot while on set.”
Other features include a vibration reduction plate, mode selection switches, an auto-calibrate setting (which I’m sure no one would use) and more.
They’re also stating that a new DEFY gimbal is coming soon that can hold up to 10 lbs. More can be seen on their website.
