About

THE ULTIMATE CAMERA STABILIZER!

GimbalProz brings you the most versatile, easy-to-use, 3-axis gimbal! The Vulcan3x dominates the market by providing the user with blissfully smooth footage. High-profile DSLR cameras will have the freedom to individually highlight their own reputable aesthetics, radiant resolution, and demanding detail without fail! While the Vulcan3x has a natural benevolence for keeping the camera steady with little to no effort, each axis, unforgiving to any of its competitors, has an unsparing precision that takes camera stabilization to the next level!

 The Vulcan strives for efficiency. By using the latest Alexmos 32 bit board, this gimbal can confidently ensure you are getting the best drift-free footage. In order to develop the Vulcan, all we had to do was take specific highlights of popular steady cams and mold it into one, affordable gimbal. The Vulcan is capable of running for over 4 hours! We understand that many cinematographers spend a ridiculous amount of hours filming; hoping to capture the optimal footage we all are looking for. With that being said, we also understand how holding a product with a weight of over 10 pounds can be a huge hassle, especially on your arms and back. That is why we made The Vulcan come in at under 5 pounds; to make it easy for you to carry during those long shoots. 

RAW BRUSHLESS POWER!

A lot of testing went into finding the perfect brushless motor. Finding the perfect ingrediance of smooth, strong, light motor was not easy but was found. The Vulcan3x is equipped with the industries best gimbal motors offered. The motors are really efficient and silky smooth which makes delivering the best absolute footage possible. 

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

It all began as a weekend project messing around with both aerial and handheld gimbals. This new technology quickly grew on us and never seemed to stop improving. Since gimbals first hit the market about 2 years ago they have become so much better. Especially with the new 32 bit boards making them a lot more accurate and drift free, Ever since day one we wanted a gimbal that was Budget friendly and easy-to-use, we all know how it is to be on a shoot and the last thing you want is having to trouble shoot your equipment. Our number one goal is to bring a gimbal to the market that is affordable to almost anyone. There is a lot of gimbals out there especially ones overseas. Since all of our units will be built here in the USA you can rest assure that attention to detail is put to every gimbal that leaves us. With 10 years of hands-on camera experience and knowledge under our belts, we know very well what the customers want in both aerial and handheld gimbals. We understand that customer service, and having a great working product will set you out from the crowd. The Vulcan, a gimbal customized to fit the essential needs of any photographer, videographer, cinematographer, or any other customer who happens to come across GimbalProz. We design and hand-craft the Vulcan to take on both the roles of the feather and rock; pushing gimbal-efficiency to its furthest corners

OUR PAYLOAD PROMISE

Instead of setting a payload limit in metrics, we’ve decided to stay to a strict black and white format for The Vulcan. In other words, the customer shouldn’t be asking “How many pounds can it carry?” Instead the customer should be asking “Can it carry the camera I want to use?” No ambiguities, no ‘in-betweens’; just a straight-up yes or no answer. The questions asked should be as simple as the answers provided.

Cameras tested to have perfect functioning capabilities with The Vulcan are as follows :

Canon 5D/6D/7D/60D/70D

Nikon D800/E

Sony NEX5/6/7/A5000/A6000/A7/A7RPanasonic GH4

The Black Magic Pocket Cinema

JOYSTCIK CONTROL FOR SINGLE OPERATOR

 The Vulcan3x comes with a joystick/mode button all built in one. This is perfect for controlling the gimbal to get the camera pointed exactly where you want it. Since the joystick is also a mode switch you are able to switch between the 4 pre programmed modes. 

MODE 1 Pan follow Tilt locked, In this mode you can control where the gimbal points by simple moving the handles from left to right. The tilt axis will stay locked no matter what movement. Perfect for running or driving along a subject.

MODE 2 Pan & Tilt follow (SLOW), In this mode you can control weather the camera looks up & down (TILT) as well as right & left (PAN) by simple moving the handles to where you want the camera to point.

MODE 3 Pan & Tilt follow (Fast), Same as Mode 2 just follows at a faster  speed.

MODE 4 Pan & Tilt Locked, In this mode both Pan and Tilt are locked and hold whatever heading you set the gimbal in with the joystick. 

ROCK STEADY RIGID DESIGN 

Being constructed of components such as premium aluminum and carbon fiber, this makes the unit more austere than your boot camp instructor. In addition, this unit avidly subverts the common complaint of a gimbal’s durability/weight ratio. It is the ultimate divergent of camera stabilization! While your gimbal is absorbing any bumps along the way, your camera is absorbing the best footage possible that will downsize any competing gimbal to a humble starter package.

SLIP RING

The Vulcan3x comes out of the box with a slip ring on the pan motor to enable you to rotate the handles 360 degrees withought ever having to worry about any wires getting tangled or cut. We saw a need for this since we want to make sure the gimbal never limits you to anything.

BALANCE IN MINUTES

Our goal was to develop a gimbal that was simple to balance with no necessary tools at all. The last thing we all want to worry about at a shoot is spending hours trying to rebalance your gimbal. With the Vulcans quick adjustment, you can easily rebalance the gimbals pan and roll axis in no time at all.

RC CONTROL STICK RADIO/STANDARD RADIO (DUAL OPERATOR)

STANDARD RADIO

We offer the Vulcan with  your standard R/C radio setup. You can control the movements of the Pan and Tilt with a wireless 2.4ghz transmitter also known as an R/C radio. This will let one operator manage the gimbal and the other focus on getting the shot. Range on this radio is about 2000+ feet so you do not have to worry about range at all.

MONITOR 

 The Vulcan3x is capable of carrying your favorite HD monitor with ease helping you frame the shot and see exactly what your camera sees.

TRAVELING CASE

 We will be offering a rock solid Go Professional Case for those of you that are like us and love taking care of your equipment. The case is 100% water proof and airport proof. We all know how at airports they love tossing things around, with this case you can ensure that all your equipment will get there in one piece. We will have more updated pics of the inside soon. This Case will be able to store your Vulcan3x, Monitor 7", Radio for dual operator as well as a few other assessors.
