Take Your GoPro to a New Dimension

RSS

Last week DJI announced an upgrade to the H3-2D Zenmuse Gimbal. 

"Announcing the DJI Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal for GoPro. Our first 3-axis GoPro gimbal. Now you don't just get pitch and roll stabilisation, you get yaw too. Say hello to smoother panning with your Phantom 2."

Some quickly wondered whether this meant there would now be a left/right pan function for the new gimbal. Of course, this wouldn't work as the Phantom's landing gear is in the way of the camera.

The new axis is not to rotate the camera around (camera yaw), but to correct the movement of the quad when you go forward or back... the quad always wobbles a bit correcting it's trajectory left and right and you get some minor yaw movement on the video, this new 3rd axis corrects that movement.

Features:

  • 3-axis gimbal
  • High precision brushless servo control
  • Aluminum alloy body
  • Built-in IMU module
  • Light-weight
  • A2, WKM, NAZA-M, NAZA-M V2 ,PHANTOM 2 supported
  • GoPro3 and GoPro3+ supported
  • Zenmuse technology
  •  

    The new H3-3D comes with a slightly higher price tag. The new pricing for a Phantom 2 combo went from $869 to $959

      The H3-2D Zenmuse Gimbal, after mounting a GoPro 3 in it, runs into two of the four rubber-like dampers … the two that have Securing Washers in them (one in the Front and one in the Rear). The result is that the camera/gimbal do not have full-motion capability:

      1. FRONT: The Securing Washer on the front damper HITS the GoPro and obstructs the free-flow motion of the gimbal. Should I move the Securing Washer to the other side of the GoPro (to the left of the GoPro, as you face the GoPro)? That side of the GoPro would not pose any obstruction, but then it might be advised to move the rear-mounted Securing Washer to the opposite side, so that the Securing Washers are diagonally across from each other, not on the same side of the Phantom’s damping unit.

      2. REAR: The other place it hits is on the gimbal itself (close to the flex-connector) against the rear Securing Washer, thereby not allowing the gimbal to rotate in one direction all the way. If I were to move the Securing Washer to the other rear position, the gimbal would not be able to move all the way in the other direction. So, the rear Securing Washer would need to be removed or re-designed to be flush mounted and not stick out 3/8" as it does now.

      Suggestions???
