    I already had spare rods (only $20 anyway)
    And 2 of the handles was like $65.
    So my add-on handles were far cheaper, the gimbal pops on and off them in 2.03 seconds (approximately) and I can of course use all the pieces for any other kind of rigging purpose.

    Maximum payloads lower than the 1600 grams of the DS1 just aren't going to work for me. I insist on lens flexibility with the option of having a few filters or a lens hood on the end as well.

    I have already done each of those handle configurations with the DS1 - remember it has a flat 3/8" mount on the bottom so you can attach pretty much ANYTHING under the sun to it.
    Handles.
    A monopod.
    A jib or crane.
    Light stands, boom arms, an LED light, an external monitor...

    Use your imagination.

    can you still stand your DS1 on the floor when you attached those handles? I like the guys setup from the video but I don't want to buy that baseplate just for that.

    Yeah, I can.

    I already had a couple of different base-plate / cheese-plate type things laying around and one of them just happened to be shaped such that it sits flat. The clamp tightens from the edge side.
    There are a zillion variations on the baseplate out there, so I kinda wondered why Park Enna got that one.
    SmallRig, Fotasy, Neewar, too many to list.

    I saw the video and for the $295 Chinese knock off and got to know more. Can someone with experience with this product share a review... Build quality, ease of calibration, how many grams can it carry, recommendations, etc. etc. ... And thank you in advance.
