Cinema Mini

The Cinema Mini is the best stabilized platform option for smaller, cinema payloads. With five-axis stabilization and a 12" diameter, this gimbal only weighs 35 lbs (without payload) making it lightweight and nimble! As with all GSS gimbals, the Cinema is well-suited for a variety of applications including aerial, auto, marine mounted and more.
