ACR Systems release EPIC Open Beta 3.0 firmware for their premium 3-axis gimbal stabilizer THE BEAST. The latest firmware includes better power management, improved and simplified Follow Mode settings, better stabilization accuracy among many other new features and improvements. The latest firmware enhances the user experience and provides gimbal operators with even more flexibility and peace of mind that they are getting super smooth shots.
The Beast from ACR Systems is an active 3-axis stabiliser capable of stabilising cameras of up to 8 kilograms (17,6 lbs) of weight. This means that popular cameras such as RED DSMC1 or DSCM2 bodies such as the RED Scarlet-W/Raven, Canon C300, URSA Mini 4.6K and even DSLR form factor cameras like the mirrorless GH4 and Sony A7sII shouldn’t be a problem for The Beast.
The Beast holds some advanced features like high precision encoders and built-in On-BoardManager with keyboard and OLED screen allowing the user to fully configure The Beast without the need to use any external devices.
Add to that some very rigid, lightweight construction, tool-less balancing, smooth, comfortable and intuitive operating modes, hard case with a set of high quality accessories and you got yourself a truly modern approach to active stabilisation.
