#GameOver

Search no more. The ultimate gimbal is here!

BeSteady Mini is first of our third generation gimbals that are designed, coded and produced by ACR Systems. Proudly made in Europe, Poland - built around the famous organic coding introduced in The Beast gimbal. Powered by EPIC firmware, the BeSteady Mini brings sophisticated functions from the premium market to smaller productions, videographers, and cinematographers for small form factor cameras such as DSLR’s and mirrorless systems.

During an intensive 18 month long development, ACR’s R&D division designed, built, and tested more than 45 iterations of the most advanced and functional single handed gimbal ever made.

Sophisticated gimbal capabilities are no longer out of reach for smaller video production companies. Filmmakers, cinematographers and other video professionals can find light weight, good balance and versatility in a handheld gimbal with the ACR Systems BeSteady Mini system for DSLR video cameras. A product of Poland, the system has been proven in Europe and elsewhere.

Many of the features that earn universal respect from filmmakers for ACR’s The Beast gimbal are included in the smaller, more affordable BeSteady Mini system. Filmmakers who use Sony, Canon, Panasonic or Blackmagic DSLR or mirrorless video cameras will find unequaled convenience, including unusually direct access to the camera while it is mounted, plus remote camera adjustment using the ACR mobile app on a smartphone.

The BeSteady Mini uses a motorized 3-axis gimbal to stabilize the camera and the video it records. Its battery pack can power not only the gimbal, but also peripheral equipment.

BeSteady Mini Ring features:

  • Construction: Aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon fiber

  • Weight: 1.76 pounds

  • Size: 16.73 x 16.85 inches

  • Batteries: Two 14.8-volt lithium-ion cells, 6A aggregate, up to 18 hours of power

  • Charging: Quick-charge USB outlets

  • Gimbal: 3-axis, brushless motors, silent operation

  • Rotation: 360 degrees on each axis

  • Lapse modes: Hyperlapse, timelapse

  • Positioning: Built in GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, DeiBou

  • Camera control: Remote through mobile app

  • Camera access: Direct without need to disconnect or reposition camera

BeSteady Two-Hand Ring

Designed for two-hand use, the BeSteady Mini does precisely what its name says. It provides stability for handheld DSLR video cameras and lends itself well to being handed off from one camera operator to another. That makes it an excellent choice for continuity shots, and shots from the seat of a car, in a crowd, on steps or over uneven terrain.

Although it’s designed for two-handed use, it’s versatile and adjustable, making it a smart choice for holding with one hand from a moving platform or car, or for mounting on a vehicle. Its compact size—less than 17 inches square—also aids car-to-car filming, maritime filming, and slipping through modest doorways or window openings.

Powerful Batteries

The two 14.8v Li-Ion cells combine for 6A of power. They can keep the gimbal’s motors running for up to 18 hours. But they can do much more, with enough juice to also power the camera, lights and a monitor. Quick recharging comes via two USB ports.

DSLR Adaptability

The Mini Ring is designed to handle DSLR and mirrorless cameras from Canon, Sony Panasonic and Blackmagic with maximum efficiency—a good thing, since those cameras are valued by an increasing legion of independent and commercial filmmakers for their autofocus capabilities, exposure control and exposure latitude. The camera can be mounted on the gimbal without obscuring the cameras’ LCD viewers. For an even better photographer’s view, the BeSteady Mini Ring easily accommodates a separate monitor.

Maximum Gimbal Rotation

The motorized gimbal on the BeSteady Mini uses brushless motors for silent operation. It also uses slip rings, so rotational movement is a full 360 degrees on each of the three axes.

Operator Control

The Mini Ring gives the camera operator complete control in either two-handed or one-handed operation for some low angles. The 1-inch diameter of the aluminum tubing is easily and firmly gripped. The ring’ shape, size and weight encourage easy passing of the gimbal and camera from one shooter to another for follow shots.

The mount is designed to leave the back of the camera unobstructed; it can be accessed easily by the operator without having to move the camera or remove any accessories or connections. The operator’s view of the camera’s built-in LCD viewer is unobstructed. If an additional monitor is advantageous for overhead or low camera angles, the Ring will accommodate one easily. It also will allow the mounting of lights.

When the Ring is tripod-mounted, a small Bluetooth radio allows adjustment of peripherals. A mobile app enables adjustment of camera settings using a smartphone.

Onboard processors let the operator program the gimbal itself to properly stabilize the camera being used.

Boom Shots

Boom-style shots are simple. A 6-foot operator can comfortably hold the rig overhead more than 9 feet off the ground while the gimbal maintains camera stability. Boom shots are simplified and better controlled when an auxiliary monitor is mounted and adjusted so the operator can see it from below.

Single-Handed BeSteady Mini Grip

Are you looking for a smaller, single-handed solution for even tighter spaces? The BeSteady Mini is also available as the highly ergonomic BeSteady Mini Grip. It uses the same gimbal mount and batteries, so the gimbal itself and the battery pack can be used interchangeably between the grip and the ring. It accommodates the same cameras.

F.A.Q.

F.A.Q.

How big is the BeSteady Mini Ring? 16.73 x 16.85 inches—big enough for stable two-handed operation, but small enough to be passed easily from operator to operator and fit through narrow doorways and window openings.

 

What is the diameter of the tubing? 25mm (0.98 inch).

 

How much does the BeSteady Mini Ring weigh? 1.76 pounds. The gimbal adds 2.64 pounds, and each battery adds 0.57 pounds. Assuming a 5-pound camera, the total working weight would be about 10.5 pounds.

 

Will the Mini Ring rust? No. It’s made from non-rusting aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon fiber.

 

What is the gimbal payload? 5.3 pounds.

 

Which cameras will the Mini System support? The Mini System is designed to work especially well with DSLRs and mirrorless cameras from Sony, Panasonic, Canon and Blackmagic. Sony: a9, a7S II, a7S, a7R III, a7R II, a7 II, a7, a6500, a6300 and a6000. Panasonic Lumix: GH5S, GH5, GH4, GH3, GH2 and GH1. Canon EOS: 5D Mark IV, 5D Mark III, 5D Mark II, 6D Mark II, 6D, 80D and 70D. Blackmagic: Micro Cinema and Pocket Cinema.

 

Is remote control possible? Yes. Integrated Bluetooth connectivity allows control of system accessories by a long-range radio. A mobile app allows control of camera settings through a smartphone.

 

How long can the gimbal operate on a single charge? Up to 18 hours.

 

Can the battery pack power more than the gimbal? Yes. It also can power the camera, lights and a separate monitor, all of which can be mounted on the Mini Ring.

 

Can settings be changed to accommodate different cameras? Yes, using ACR Autotune algorithms, which are built in.

 

How far can a camera rotate when mounted on the gimbal? A mounted camera can rotate a full 360 degrees on all three axes.

 

Can the sound of the gimbal motors be picked up by a microphone? The gimbal motors are silent.

 

Can the batteries be taken on public airline flights? Yes.

 

What if I want a gimbal handle even smaller than the Mini Ring? A BeSteady Mini Handheld Grip also is available from Drone Nerds. It uses the same battery pack and gimbal as the Ring.

 

Can the Mini Ring be tripod-mounted? Yes.
