Defy has officially announced the G2X, a lightweight gimbal designed for mirrorless and small DSLRs that when inverted allows balancing without a stand.
The G2X is Defy’s smallest and lightest gimbal stabilizer. Weighing 4.5lbs with a load capacity of 3.5lbs. It is designed for use with mirrorless and small DSLR cameras.
The Defy G2X has a series of pre-selected auto tuned modes for various camera weights, you cannot control the gimbal through dedicated software.
The Defy can operate in two modes, standard and inverted. It will recognize which mode you require by sensing the orientation, a great feature is that in inverted mode the top handle is designed in a way that will support the device, alleviating the need for a stand when balancing.
Ports for remote and throttle pan/tilt control are present for use with Defy accessories for taking control of the gimbal in both single and dual operator setups.
Battery life is around 120 minutes of continuous use, you get two of them as standard which is nice, plus the whole package ships in a hard case.
The Defy G2x is available for $1995.00 from February through their website.
