There was a huge amount of buzz about the DJI Phantom getting brushless gimbals at NAB 2013 and now our good friends at have kindly told us they have Zenmuse Hero 3 Gimbal’s ready to roll out the door June 25th. Get in they will go fast.

The most impressive feature, after the amazing video stabilization, is that the H3-2D actually seamlessly integrates with the GoPro Hero3 using it’s own interface jack. So what does this mean to you? you will be able to, at some point in the future, be able to control the Hero 3 camera features and stream content directly out of the gimbal – no need for bulky and heavy HDMI wires or plugs!

DSLRPRos will offer optional installation services for an additional $75 if you are not able to install the gimbal on your own. We will be providing the full manual as soon as DJI officially release the price. For a clean install you will be required to solder the the GCU power leads onto the main controller board. More details and instructions will be provided later.
