Best gimbal for Pocket 4K?

Recommended Posts

actually they sell a pack with the follow focus motor which is a bit more expensive.

i think follow focus button will be compatible with some cameras such as gh5 and sony, just use a cable and focus will be handled by the gimball

not so sure it can do that with BM4K

Well a good follow focus is completely manual so it should not matter what camera is on it. You should be controlling the lenses and not the camera. So the nucleus N sure has the advantage over there. But DJI will release some competition soon.

That's what the Zhiyun focus is. You put the cable tie thing around the lens and the motors pushes or pulls it around. The one on the Ronin S is entirely software driven, and it's made that gimbal drop significantly in my 'which gimbal should I get?' list.

Titla's option is nice, but a lot more expensive than Zhiyun's offering.

well i guess it controls the camera and the camera is controlling the lenses so it is about the same.

at least you have one apendix less if you can control focus with the gimball, makes it lighters too

Its not the same, how is your camera going to focus manual lenses I wonder..

The one which is available now is yeah. but not the one that is rumoured.

I have the Crane 2. Doesn't mount on it out of the box, Pocket 4K is too wide.

My fear on the new and small size offer by them... Hope they are fully aware of this new tool without IBIS... but targeted to run-'n-gun filmmaking anyway as no one ever before (go figure 4K RAW for such price ; -)

and this comment from b&h

The Weebill Lab Gimbal is really geared towards Mirrorless Cameras. We would not recommend it with a camera like the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. It may not properly balance. Thanks! -Joey P"

 

don't know why as the weight isn't an issue, size is not a problem for the ronin s so shlouldn't be one either here

Yeah the crane 3 might stur things up again. The ronin s might be heavier. But smoothness is the most important aspect for me. I dont shoot hours in a gimbal. Just 10 second clips, so I think I can manage 10 seconds of holding this setup.

A very light setup could need extra weight, and other (re-) arrangements to stabilize sufficiently. That applies to every mounting method (tripods, monopods, sliders, e.t.c)

I don't know why they will say that too as I am eying this gimbal for the P4K especially with their follow focus. I guess I will keep waiting and see if that's possible when the gimbal get's released.

Well then is there a difference between the 'Creator Package Follow Focus Controller' and the 'Master Package CMF-04 Servo Follow Focus'

Why have just the controller?

My understanding is the Creator package has just a controller but the Master Package has the CMF-04 servo follow focus with the controller.

These Koreans have excellent style and posture!

I thought the Weebill would be P4K ready, I do not like all these mods to make a very modern and recent gimbal to work.

I will be waiting for the official release, but I believe they will have something ready for it very soon.

They are also from the same continent (the Weebill bird and the Black Magic company), so they have to figure it out!

For a simple reason, the matter is not centered on weight but form factor, that is, in two words: design and size. That's all! : )

Seems the doubt is most likely cleared up.

Hopefully, Crane 3 LAB addresses the Pocket 4K... without quirks.

Quite interested in the Weebill, it seems it does work with the P4K and some additional weights.. and some strange auto-translation english..

...this is GH5S, but wanted to point out it would be great if there’s s gimbal which also comes with a strap in mind. Some harness like there is for dual cameras would be a great addon for heavier setups.

Regarding Pocket 4k, I bet there’ll be rather soona gimbal built around it.

I've heard Pocket 4K has been used on Moza Air which handles more than 3 Kg BTW:

Seems the more interesting and most affordable solution for this camera by now.

 

Any thoughts from any users here? What about how much hard is to set it up?
