|New Kovacam Sabre Digi 3 axis gimbal just $398|
Kovacam has been building counterbalanced stabilizers and selling them in the US market for a while - such as this well-reviewed combination stabilizer monopod and the interesting Xcam Sabre mini tripod stabilizer.
Now, they have decided to step into the 3 axis gimbal market in a big way - with the new Kovacam Sabre Digi SD-01 - priced at an amazing $398.
At this price, Sabre Digi undercuts the nearest competition, the $499.90 Beholder MS-1, by almost $100 - and makes the $998 CAME-TV Single look seriously overpriced.
Here are a couple of Kovacam promo videos showing the SD-01 flying the Panasonic G7 and GH4:
At $398, it starts to make a lot of sense for mirrorless shooters to replace their old counterbalanced stabilizers with an easy to use gimbal.
It also means the higher-end gimbal manufacturers will have to lower their prices if they want to stay competitive.
A real win-win for videographers and filmmakers on a budget.
