With 4 different modes, you’ll get the shots that you need. The gimbal’s handle comes with two ¼-20 mounts that are perfect for mounting accessories such as a light, microphone, or monitor. In addition, the 3/8-16 thread located on the bottom allows you to securely mount the EC1 to a tripod, jib, or dual handle support system such as the Ikan DGH.
