Ghost V3 Battery

We have created a new battery for the Ghost V3. This battery is 14.4v, 2400mah, and has a built in voltage indicator to check how much battery life is left.

The battery snaps into place on the V3 and lasts 2-3 hours.

Review after NAB

All the secrets are out from NAB and we are happy to say that no camera stabilizer can compete with the new features on the Ghost V3.

With our lightweight rail system you can fit any size camera. The V3 adjust with quick release levers in any direction, so you can even fit longer bodied video cameras.

We have built in encoders in each motor and dual sensors to optimize the performance. This allows precise stability to ± 0.02°.

The V3 also runs off a standard Sony BP U-30 battery.

Only 3 more hours to donate on Kickstarter, and we can ship as early as the end of the month.

After kickstarter we will begin taking pre-orders on our website, but at full retail price.

Last Day on Kickstarter

Thanks so much to all of our backers so far. We are so close to hitting our stretch goal of $50,000. If we do hit this, we will be shipping the Ghost V3 in a custom, hard shell ABS case.

We know you guys want to see more videos of the gimbals in action, so we will continue to upload videos demonstrating how awesome all of the Ghost Gimbals are.

Below is a video shot with the Ghost Grip and the iPhone 6.

It's super small, lightweight, and sets up in seconds.

Only one more day to order on Kickstarter and then all the gimbals will be back up to retail price on our website: http://kck.st/1xvzLQw

Ghost Pro II, Lenzhound, GH4

We set up the Ghost Pro II with the Lenzhound follow focus on the Panasonic GH4.

This video shows how we set everything up. Depending on what lens you use, you might need to get creative with balancing because the lenzhound adds a lot of weight to the front. However, this setup worked great as is.

Two more days on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1xvzLQw

We have also decided on using the ABS hard shell cases. Majority vote won. So if we hit $50,000 everyone will have their Ghost V3 shipped in a free customized case.

Follow Focus

Some of you guys have wanted the option to mount a follow focus to the V3 and Ghost Pro II.

We have now finished production on the follow focus attachment. This will connect easily on the V3 and Pro II and allow you to mount whatever wireless follow focus you decide to operate.

You can purchase this option on kickstarter in the next nine days for $50. If you have already pledged to our Kickstarter and want to add this option, then just increase your current pledge $50 and make a note to include the follow focus.

After Kickstarter it will be for sale on our website for $100.

The Lenzhound is one company we have worked with who develops a wireless follow focus. They also used Kickstarter to get their business up and running.  We will be making an instructional video using their unit on the Ghost later in the month.

Please share our kickstarter. We only have 9 days to go.

Drone Mount for the V3

Production is underway and everything is coming together very nicely. We are projecting to have the first batch of the V3 gimbals completed by the end of April and to finish up production in May.

We have also completed a vibration dampening mount for the V3. This mount has a quick release attachment and can be mounted to rails under a multirotor/drone or mounted to other accessories.

We just added this as an additional pledge level, so please check it out and share.

Updated Firmware: 2_50b2

If you are currently an owner of the Ghost, we have released a new version of Firmware.

Before updating or making any changes in the software please save your current settings.

You can upload the newest firmware from this link: http://sicvisuals.com/manual/

Here is what has been updated:

  • User-written scripts (see Language Reference and user manual)
  • IMU temperature calibration and compensation.
  • New tool "Analyze" to make analysis of system response.
  • Notch filters have adjustable gain (0..100%)
  • "Motor outputs" settings group is changed to per-profile basis
  • GUI and firmware support Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) module communication (experimental)
  • New setting group "Outer PI controller" to adjust values for outer (cascade) PI controller (default value is 100 suit most setups)
  • New option "Swap frame and main sensors" to use frame IMU as main IMU and vice versa
  • New option "Gyro deadband" to cut off gyro noise around zero (that may be audible as 'white noise' in heavy setups)
  • New option "I2C high-speed". Use it carefully: high speed mode may cause I2C errors.

Bugfixes:

  • Frame upside-down command loads default profile after reset
  • frame upside-down detection doesn't work if "skip gyro calibration" is disabled.
  • acceleration limiter does not work properly with the big speed setting in the "Follow" mode: camera overshoots target position

ENCODER version:

  • New encoder type "Analog".
  • Different encoder types may be assigned to different axis
  • Option to adjust sound volume in the 'beep by motors' mode in the 'Service' tab
  • Bug fixed: frame upside-down switching is not correct
  • Several bugs fixed related to encoder calibration
