FeiyuTech has successfully funded their new compact Scorp Mini Gimbal on Kickstarter. The compact four-in-one gimbal has received over $200,000 in backing, which surpassed their $636 goal by over 27,000 percent! And that’s only after five days.
The Scorp Mini Four in One Gimbal supports mirrorless, Compact Camera, Action Camera, and smartphone setups with minimal rebalancing.
Through a redesigned posture optimized design, the Scorp Mini can be deployed in a standard gimbal posture, an upside-down posture, or a quick shooting posture for smoother action shots.
There’s also an underslung mode for lower angles, a briefcase mode for capturing fast action on the run, and a two-handed vertical mode.
The Scorp will sync with your smartphone and then move as the phone moves through control by the phone’s accelerometer.
The gimbal has five different preprogrammed balancing positions, which can then be adjusted to keep the gimbal balanced and stable at all times.
With a 1.3-inch OLED color touchscreen, users can view, select and switch easily between all the available operating modes. The gimbal also has a quick release plate to switch between cameras within seconds.
The Scorp Mini uses center weight balancing to minimize the setup required when moving from camera to camera. Its “Magic Wheel” provides focusing and camera movement control with a single knob, or the gimbal can be controlled from a smartphone app.
The Scorp Mini can also pan and move up and down simultaneously and can create a higher resolution image through its nine-panel panorama mode. Other features include auto tracking, follow focus, time-lapse, motion-lapse, and hyperlapse.
Users can also take advantage of a variety of add-on accessories including a remote-controlled follow-focus device, which will sync and rebalance with a touch of a button, and then can be controlled remotely through the smartphone app.
There’s also an optional AI-driven Smart Tracking module, which ensures a subject remains in focus no matter how much they move around. The accessory also can be controlled through gestures when the camera operator is also on camera.
The Scorp Mini promises a battery life of ten hours of continuous use with its 2600 mAh battery, as well as supporting 16w fast charging, which can recharge the gimbal completely in about 1.6 hours. The gimbal is also extremely light and compact, weighing only 1.735 lbs (787g).
At the time of this writing, the FeiyuTech Scorp Mini can still be backed on Kickstarter at an early bird price as low as $199, which is a steal for a gimbal that can handle four different kinds of cameras. But those are going really fast.
