Ikan Releases MS1 Upgrade: MS-PRO Gimbal Stabilizer

HOUSTON, Texas, (January 31, 2017) — Have you heard? There is a new gimbal in town. Ikan has just released the newest upgrade to the popular Beholder MS1 gimbal: the MS-PRO. Attendees at WPPI 2017 in Las Vegas will be some of the lucky few to get a first look at the newest Ikan gimbal. Constructed out of durable all aluminum, the MS-PRO is a three-axis gyro stabilizer with an encoder system and a 32-bit control board. With the 12-bit encoder system, the MS-PRO can respond more quickly, making the gimbal more stable and accurate. The MS-PRO gimbal can balance most mirrorless cameras that weigh less than 900 grams, including other cameras, smartphones, and GoPro cameras. Whether you’re filming fast-paced actions or aiming for high or low-angle shots, the MS-PRO will help correct shakes and sways in order to achieve professional grade image stabilization.

MS-PROThe MS-PRO also enables 360 degree movement from the yaw axis and maintains great stability for all angles. The gimbal can be further utilized by attaching a monopod to it in order to simulate a drone shot, low and high follow shots, dolly shot, and a variety of angles. With an OLED display that shows the current battery level and current mode, you can easily monitor and charge the battery, eliminating sudden low battery situations. The MS-PRO has 8-10 hours of operating time and 4 operating modes.

From amateur to professional shooters, the MS-PRO gimbal stabilizer is a great tool to have.

“I love the MS-PRO. Mirrorless cameras are extremely popular these days, and buying a large gimbal can often be overkill for these types of cameras. The MS-PRO nails it when it comes to price, performance, and portability. It’s truly a no-brainer for anyone who owns a mirrorless camera,” says Julio Ramon, Product Manager.

If you’re attending WPPI, make sure to stop by the Ikan Booth #743 to check out the MS-PRO and more new products from Ikan. The WPPI expo will run from February 7-9, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
