"The ultimate filmmaking tool" - Tom Blount, Silvertip Films Cinematographer
We want the camera operator to have freedom and mobility to capture creative shots. Smaller handheld gimbals are a great tool, but because they are smaller it's hard to eliminate the vertical "bounce" in a shot. This Ghost V4 solves that problem in one lightweight gimbal package. Gimbal vests and arms limit your movement, cost more, and require more gear to bring from set to set. With the new Ghost V4 a single operator can shoot all day long without any limitations. Note: This is a pre-order. The V4 ships in March.Included:

Although the Ghost is tested with a camera before shipping, it does not come pre-tuned or balanced for your specific camera setup. Customers will be responsible for tuning and balancing their camera. We can provide example profiles upon request.
Aside from our competitive price, we strive to make one of the best quality gimbals that is easy to balance and operate. We were one of the first companies to develop a brushless gimbal, so we know this technology inside and out and our customer service can assist in any questions you might have.
Why Choose the Pro II vs the V2?
The main difference is how heavy of a camera setup you want to mount. If your camera is between 1-12lbs, the Pro version is for you. If your camera is 5lbs or under you will want the V2. The V2 is much lighter, so it will be less fatigue on your arms.
How heavy of a camera can be supported?
Camera, lens, and accessory combinations from 1 – 12 pounds. Anything added above the grip bar is not factored into this weight limit. i.e. monitor
How long does the battery last?
The supplied battery will last from 90 to 150 minutes. Battery life depends on how heavy of a camera you are flying and what your power is set to in the GUI.
Can I attach a monitor?
Yes, you will want to purchase the accessory mount and then you can attach any accessory to the top of the grip bar.
Can I control the Ghost with a joystick or remote control?
The Ghost is easily adapted to be controlled by a joystick or remote control. Both are sold separately, but we have instructional videos on how to set those up.
The 4th axis limits vertical bounce in your camera movement. This is most common when running, or on bumpy terrain. With smaller gimbals it is impossible to eliminate this unless you have the Ghost V4. The V4's fourth axis is mechanical and operates like a steadycam arm. The internal spring strength can be adjusted depending on how heavy of a camera you're operating.
We have taken the Ghost to the next level with built-in encoders (sensors) in the motors. The motors have been completely redesigned. We have customized every aspect of the motor for optimal performance. The built in encoders have the following advantages:
|Supported camera weight with accessories||1 - 6 pounds (0.5 - 2700g)|
SLR and Mirrorless Style
|Hard Case Size||17x13x5 (W,L,H) 43x33x17cm|
Gimbal Weight with 4th axis
4lbs 12oz, 2155g
One thing we have learned over the years is that everyone wants a gimbal to be easy to adjust and adapt to different cameras.
Here are the Features:
The Ghost V4 easily breaks down, so you can pack it in a carry-on for travel.
We redesigned the controller to utilize motor encoders. Each motor has it's own controller. We also included a Bluetooth device, so you can connect with your phone or computer without using any cables.
If you don’t have much or any experience calibrating a gimbal, then the Ghost has a new Auto Calibrate mode to set appropriate settings for your specific camera setup. Always make sure to save your current settings before changing them.
If you want higher angle shots, then simply flip the Ghost upside-down for an inverted mode. The Ghost can work either way without even needing to change the mode.
This is the same mode we have been using on our current models, but it can easily be customized for your specific operating style. In the follow mode the Ghost will automatically track your movements whether you are tilting up and down or panning left and right. The horizon will always stay locked in a level position unless you change that option in the settings.
The joystick allows a single operator to manually control the Ghost's movements. With the joystick installed, the operator can pan and tilt the cameras position with their thumb movements. The...
