A TOOL FOR CREATIVITY
The Perfect Shot Doesn’t Wait
Forget your “gimbal lens” and stop leaving your best glass in your bag. StabiLens is optimized for on-the-go camera operators who are using lighter lenses. Each ring can add between 21 and 261 grams (0.57 lbs) which means it is perfect for many mirrorless and DSLR lens combinations and zoom lenses. Add 2 rings at once for even more versatility.
Get the Most Out of Your Gimbal
The StabiLens’ workflow allows you to balance all of your lenses before you get to set. That opens up a new range of cinematic possibilities and allows you to save time and choose the best lens for the moment. You’ll be more versatile and able to get more creative with your gimbal. You may even start using your gimbal more often.
Repeatable and universal StabiLens will fit your workflow
StabiLens works with many brands of camera, lenses and gimbals. Each ring can add over half a pound and works by stretching around most lenses that are between 58mm to 100mm in diameter. That range covers most DSLR and mirrorless lenses. It also fits over most lens hoods. In fact, keeping a StabiLens ring on your lens hood is the ideal way to use and store StabiLens. Simply snap on your lens hood when you need to balance your camera and you’re ready to shoot instantly.

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.
SKIP THE LEARNING CURVE
The Possibilities are Endless
StabiLens is perfect for gimbal beginners who have trouble balancing their gimbal. It’s also great for pros who depend on moving quickly and want to use the right lens for the moment. Now your b-cam operator can pick up a pre-balanced gimbal and use the entire kit without any learning curve. Whether you’re shooting a feature film or your first wedding StabiLens is the right tool for the job.

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
So Many Ways to Use StabiLens
StabiLens is made to fit your needs, however you shoot. If you have 2 lenses you only need one StabiLens gimbal ring. Just balance your gimbal using your largest lens, attach a smaller lens with stabilens 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.
