Gimbal manufacturer FeiyuTech has announced a new series of stabilizers called Scorp that feature touch screen controls, electronic focus motors and physical memory buttons to make using advanced functions easier. The Scorp and Scorp Pro models also come with a detachable suspension handle, the ability to shoot upright footage at the press of a button and a 13 hour battery life.
The standard Scorp version is aimed at enthusiast shooters and can hold up to 2.5kg (5.5lbs), while the more hefty Scorp Pro can manage kit weighing up to 4.7kg (10.5lbs). The Pro model can also be controlled remotely via the detachable handle, while the main rear handle of both models houses the touch screen so it can be seen all the time by the operator. This screen can be used to control not only the gimbal itself but also the main features of compatible cameras.
The company claims new motors and algorithms inside the gimbals provide much better stabilization than before, and a new lower centre of gravity makes balancing a new camera and lens set-up much quicker.
The FeiyuTech Scorp and Scorp Pro are available now and cost $429 and $629 respectively. For more information see the FeiyuTech website.
