About every two weeks we have revisited the search engines and looked for the latest brushless gimbal offerings. For every six brushless gimbal camera rigs we put on Cinescopophilia another three are so bad we just can’t include them.
This time however we have a mix of larger rigs that can take a RED sized camera and smaller brushless gimbal setups.
We even found one setup that includes a brushless gimbal system on a shoulder mounted camera rig.
Now these rigs are at different stages of readiness, but all are prototype to market ready.

Monkey Gimbal Gibon-FF – 3-axis brushless motor handheld gimbal
Monkey Gimbal Gibon-FF has been designed to fit Canon 5D size cameras. It is 20mm wider than Lemur-DSLR and 30mm deeper, the movie shows a Canon 550D with 17-40L lens, with 5D and 17-40L lens the gap between the lens turned backwards and the gimbal frame would be around 15mm. However the main change in the construction is the horizontal double tubes that the arms are mounted to – this solution enables hanging more weight at further distance. The controller is mounted on the arms and the arms are higher than the controller to protect it. There will be a cover on the controller and the IMU. Very light and very strong setup for everyone wanting to shoot handheld videos. Lemur-DSLR gimbal is a little smaller and ligher, if you want to fly with a DSLR camera Lemur-DSLR is the right choice, it will also accept a 5D size camera but with shorter than 17-40L lens.
In case anybody wonders: Monkey Gimbals are 3-axis brushless motor gimbals that have been designed for smaller DSLR cameras up to heavy camcorders. The gimbals will use 3-axis alexmos controllers but since they are not yet available all tests are being done using 2-axis main alexmos boards.
This particular gimbal is not finished due to the luck of parts that are still being machined, it will be finished soon.
