AX18


The AX18 is an ultra-light 18 inch 5-axis gyro stabilized gimbal system providing unshakable stability. It was designed from ground up to support many different broadcast and cine camera and lens options.
Payloads are fully pre-assembled onto the payload-tray, including all lens- motors and balancing weights, and can be transported to the set and rigged into the gimbal within minutes.

All communication between the turret, camera and the operating panel is performed via Ethernet protocol, allowing the turret to be controlled via a broad range of transports, even via WIFI or across the internet.
