ACR Systems BeSteady Mini Gimbal Has a Slick Design + Super-Long Battery Life

Poland based ACR Systems are announcing their new single grip gimbal – the BeSteady Mini. The new gimbal features a slick design providing the operator with an unobstructed view of the back LCD screen of the camera and is based on the organic software introduced in the famous The Beast Gimbal stabilizer made for bigger professional cameras.

BeSteady Mini’s design also incorporates an ergonomic wooden handle and supports camera/lens combos of up to 5.3 lbs or 2.4 kilograms making it perfect for most mirrorless cameras such as the Panasonic GH5, Sony a6500 and even bigger DSLRs such as the Canon 5D Mark IV. For a full list of supported cameras do scroll to the bottom of this post.

Other features include 360 degree rotation of each axis, long battery life (up to 18 hours on a single charge), dual outputs on the battery sled for powering accessories such as monitors.

“I’ve been developing gimbals since 2012. During last few years I’ve gathered experience based on different designs. Our team was constantly growing. Coders, engineers, cinematographers became blood, tissue, and brains of an ambitious project. A lot of people helped us greatly investing their time as consultants and testers.

Finally, after such a long time, the Third Generation has been born. I cannot wait to see beautiful movies that cinematographers will make thanks to the tools we are providing and to hear their stories.” said Max Salamonowicz, CEO at ACR Systems.
