Alex Moskalenko is the Godfather of gimbals. if you don’t know who he is then just run his two names together for a clue…
Check out what Alex has been up to.
A DIY handheld gimbal. Instructions are in Russian at time of print, but Alex is pretty good at doing English versions of his work quickly.
I designed this gimbal for my Sony A5100 camera to get it to travel. It is lightweight and compact (only 21 x 12 x 5 cm when folded!), does not obscure LCD display, has built-in joystick and various modes of operation.
