Gimbal LOCK for transport

Discussion in 'Zenmuse H3-3D/H4-3D GoPro Gimbal' started by lightingbryan, May 12, 2014.

  1. I have heard the Vision series comes with a gimbal lock. Does the H3-3D have anything to keep the gimbal from getting banged around?

    Is there a DIY solution you have come up with?

    I've got to say that that holder made with a clothespin is the dumbest rig I ever seen....just use a rubber band around the camera to the gimbal.....
     
  4. That was my feeling

    The gimbal doesn't need to be locked for transport. Don't worry.
     
  6. Any lit on this?

    If you mean literature none that I know of. My comment is based upon experience over the last year and common sense.

    When unpowered the gimbal is merely rotating around on the bearings. Not a big deal at all as shown by experience carrying my P1 and P2 strapped to the outside of my pack - freely flopping around.
