Hello out there..!
I just got my V2 gimbal the other day... had a few spins with it but no working situation
yet. First impression is good though...
My background is a master film gimbal, and then the "standard" MK-V gimbal.
First impression when opening the package and holding it is good craftsmanship. All metalwork is very nice. Its a bit bigger than the standard gimbal ( I also have a thicker post ) and the handle is somewhat longer that I´we been used to. A special feature to this gimbal-by the way, is that you can change the handle after your own specs..... haven´t tried that yet though.....
Mk-V stated that there should be no play in any axis.... and this is.......true..!
When doing the dynamic balance, there were no funny noises or any friction felt what
so ever... ( might just be me but I sometimes been a bit worried when small shreats of metal dropped to the floor, when I adjusted the drop time.... ;-)
I think that this gimbal should be the standard gimbal on the MK-V (no offense Howard)
because In my opinion it is a much better construction than the standard model.
- wery good design / craftsmanship
- No play
- No friction
- good grip.
- very "neutral" in all positions.
- handle is a bit long...takes a little getting used to.
- Insertion to armpost is shorter, gimbal ends up a bit higher on the arm
( in connection with monitor view..)
I will return with pictures and more feedback when I have tested it "live"
