Hot on the heels of DJI releasing its latest gimbals, Chinese gimbal manufacturer FeiyuTech has released the AK2000C, its latest three-axis handheld gimbal for mid-sized camera systems.
The AK2000C is a lightweight handheld gimbal that can hold just shy of 2.2kg (5lbs) worth of camera gear and run for up to seven hours on a single charge. This payload would be enough to hold recent cameras, such as the Canon EOS R/R5/R6, Fujifilm X-T3, Nikon Z6/7 and Sony a7 III with standard primes and zoom lenses attached.
The frame of the gimbal is constructed of an aluminum alloy and, much like DJI’s gimbals, it features quick-release locks on all three axes for keeping everything secure when packed away. The gimbal comes in at just over 1kg (2.5lbs) and folds up to 69mm (2.7”) x 208mm (8.1”) x 348mm (13.6”).
FeiyuTech says the AK2000C is powered by its W7 algorithm, which includes pre-programmed shooting modes, such as timelapse, 360 pans, selfie mode, vertical shooting and more. Both camera and gimbal settings can be controlled right on the gimbal using its new OLED touchscreen (FeiyuTech doesn’t specify what specific cameras work with the gimbal though).
