Cinema Pro 

Perfect for use in almost any scenario, the Cinema Pro (formerly the C516) is the best stabilized platform option for most cinema focused payloads. With five-axis stabilization and a 16" diameter, this gimbal can easily handle medium-sized cinema cameras with impressive lenses! As with all GSS gimbals, the Cinema Pro is well-suited for a variety of applications including aerial, auto, marine mounted and more.
