  1. #1 370$ handheld 3 axis gimbal for bmpcc ? Yes it works ! 
    I bought some weeks ago a 3 axis gimbal with alexmos 32 bit controller to mount my bmpcc on my Sky-Hero Spy750 multirotor.



    This gimbal is made for sony nex series cameras, but works well with the bmpcc. It is really light, only 500g with motors and... the price is really light too !
    Just 370 bucks with the controller board : http://www.rangevideo.com/dys-blg3sn...ug-n-play.html

    I turned it into an handheld gimbal :


    I still need some additional tuning but's that's working good yet :

    About an hour to modify the handles of my shoulder rig, and mount the quick release system, and some hours to do pid settings, that's not perfect yet, but it will !

    Have you used one of these before? You said it took some modifying, as well as adjusting pid settings...Could this realistically be setup by someone with literally zero prior experience?

    As tempting as trhis may sound, i found the footage quite shaky, nothing I would want to pay for. Sorry.

    Now I use it with a 14-45 and a follow focus with the same settings, everything is ok except my tuning of pids. The motors are madde for cameras up to 700g.

    You are right ! My PID are far to be perfect... I need to work on this but yeah for cameras of this size, it's a good solution when you know how to tune it. I'll make a new video when I'mm be totally ok with PID settings.
