A TOOL FOR CREATIVITY
The Perfect Shot Doesn’t Wait
Before StabiLens using a gimbal meant making creative compromises, limiting ourselves to one lens or planning shoots around avoiding needless rebalancing. Stabilens changes all that. Now you can swap your lens quickly and get that perfect cinematic shot every time. Stop compromising your creativity. Stop the workarounds. Stop leaving your expensive lenses in your bag when you shoot with your gimbal. Get the most out of your cinema, DSLR, or mirrorless camera.
Get the Most Out of Your Gimbal
The StabiLens workflow allows you to balance all of your lenses before you get to set. StabiLens’ patented technology balances all three axes on your gimbal and still allows you to use accessories like variable ND filters, focus motors and matte boxes. StabiLens opens up a new range of cinematic possibilities. You’ll be more versatile and able to get more creative with your gimbal stabilizer. You may even start using your gimbal more.
Repeatable and universal StabiLens will fit your workflow
StabiLens works with all brands of cameras, stabilizer and gimbal, and it fits on most lenses between 58-100mm in diameter. StabiLens only needs to be set up once and then you can instantly balance your gimbal over and over again. It was designed for pros using DSLR and mirrorless cameras who don’t have time to waste during shoots. The StabiLens ring stretches around your lens and works by matching the each lens’ center of gravity. It can add between 21-261 grams of weight (.58 lb) and fits over most lens hoods.

Stabilens means never rebalancing your gimbal when you swap lenses
One of the big issues with motorised 3-axis gimbals is that you have to balance them. And if you’re regularly changing lenses while you shoot, that means you could rebalancing them a whole lot during the course of your day. Zac Miller at Stabilens thinks he’s figured out a solution to this problem. We caught up with Zac at PhotoPlus 2019 to see his solution.

See What People Are Saying
StabiLens held up to the pounding our gear takes during field productions and intense travel.
The workflow I developed for the StabiLens™ Gimbal Ring means I can balance all of my lenses once during shoot prep and then swap lenses all day long.
As is typical for live events, the turnaround between key moments we need for feature content at Overwatch League is usually pretty tight. I fly a MoVI M15, and I’ve had to pick my lens changes carefully since a rebalance might mean letting a moment go. Our Tokina 14-20 was almost impossible to rotate in since it’s in a different weight class than our Sigma Cine Zooms and required a MoVI cage reconfiguration. With the StabiLens I can visit our cart, switch to any lens in our kit, and be back on stage rolling camera within a minute.
With StabiLens™ I can hot-swap lenses on my gimbal without wasting any valuable time on set. We are saving time in production and in the editing room.
EASY TO USE
Simple One Time Setup
StabiLens is made to fit your workflow, however you shoot. If you have 2 lenses you only need one StabiLens gimbal ring. The one time setup is simple. Just balance your gimbal using your largest lens, attach a smaller lens with a StabiLens ring attached, add weights to match the weight distribution of your larger lens, and shoot. It’s easier than balancing your gimbal and you only need to do it once. Check out our how to videos for more info
