Lets learn more about the Beholder DS1 Camera Stabilizer. (Video Mark 0:00) Due to the urgency to manufacture the first batch of DS1 some projects were delay such as the usb remote and manual for the DS1. The MS1 and DS1 are almost identical in terms of design and function so the MS1 manual will be used for the moment. The two differences we want to point out is the orientation of the DS1's gimbal roll arm is on the right side of the camera and that the gimbal will need to be balanced before the stabilizer can be used. (Video Mark 4:00) Attaching the quick release plate, we suggest not tightening the screw all the way. Allow the camera and plate to have some slack so adjustments can be made for balance. (Video Mark 5:00) Adjusting the gimbal, trust us this is going to take some practice and patience. Precise balance of the gimbal and camera will reward the operator with reliable stability. Pay attention to how the camera and gimbal fall in the video and how adjustments are made to compensate. (Video Mark 9:00) To fully test the balance of the gimbal and calibration of the hardware, the engineer moves the DS1 around watching how the whole system works together to stabilizer the camera. The chimes coming from the DS1 are an indication that the system has switched from follow mode to lock mode and back. (Video Mark 9:50) The button located on the gimbal stage is for calibrating the gyro. The gimbal needs to be level and untouched for proper calibration. (Video Mark 10:15) Notice how the gimbal will need to be adjusted due to the change in the placement of the LCD. (Video Mark Enjoy its Friday!)
