INSTANT LENS SWAP
I Invented StabiLens Because
I loved the beautiful, cinematic look I got while shooting on my gimbal but shooting on a gimbal also really sucked. I found myself making creative compromises because on most shoots I don’t have the time to rebalance my gimbal more than once. The StabiLens™ gimbal ring solves that problem and allows me to be more creative and get exactly the shot I want every time. I spent a year churning out dozens of prototypes before we discovered the perfect design that was universal, sleek and nearly invincible.
StabiLens is made of the highest quality medical grade silicone and can stand up to the most demanding shoots in the harshest filming environments. StabiLens means quality and that’s why we warranty all of our products against defects for life. Don’t trust me? Buy one for yourself and see.

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.
