Helix’s baby brother is designed for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras like the Panasonic GH4 and SONY A7s

The Letus Helix Jr is the perfect lightweight gimbal made for people who need smooth tracking shots without the arm fatigue of heavier rigs. The unique top roll axis allows for quick and seamless transition to ground-scraping ‘suitcase mode’. Long battery life, smart monitor mounting options and intuitive control of pan & tilt make the Jr a winner.
