The Benro X-Series 3XD Pro is a 3-axis gimbal stabilizer made with the professional filmmaker in mind.
The Benro X-Series 3XD Pro is created with the filmmaker's needs in mind. Ideal for cameras up to 8.3 lbs., the 3XD PRO features CNC machining with a dual handle design. Its collapsible handles make it perfect for traveling light and compact, while the ergonomic silicon grips give you comfortable handling at all times.
The Benro 3XD Pro's foldable dual handle design allows for compact storage as well as offering the ability to switch between dual handle or underslung single handle use.
Dual Handle Mode is suitable for high angle and medium angle filming and allows for the gimbal's weight to be more evenly distributed across your body. Underslung Carry Mode with the new hybrid tripod/handle is best for low angle filming. Combining these options will help you get the most out of your stabilizer.
By simply rotating the gimbal 180 and turning the included tripod 90 degrees to become a handle, you can enter Underslung Mode with ease.
With a 13-hour battery life, the 3XD Pro is guaranteed to keep up with you during the most extensive days of shooting. With the multi-functional camera control, you can easily select and control your desired camera movements.
The 3XD Pro also features in arm cabling for both audio as well as monitor use. This removes the need to have microphone or monitor cables dangling and affecting balance.
There are also multiple easily accessible modes pre-programmed into the gimbal. By pressing down on the Mode/On side button function, you can switch between three different modes:
Universal Follow Mode (Pink) provides smooth camera movements along the tilt axis and pan axis towards the direction you're aiming. You would use this mode when circling around a subject or making several dynamic camera movements following a subject.
Locked-down mode (Blue) keeps the camera locked on a subject while moving the gimbal. With this mode you can replicate movements similar to a jib or slider.
Horizontal follow mode (Orange) provides smooth movement based on where you move the camera horizontally while keeping the horizon level. You would use this mode when doing a lot of dynamic panning movements around corners.
By using the directional button in conjunction with these modes, you can flawlessly control your movements.
The companion smart phone app allows you to calibrate your 3XD Pro, operate it remotely, adjust parameters, update the firmware, create a panorama, or create a beautiful time-lapse with dynamic motion.
For advanced camera control you can directly operate the photo shutter/focus, video record, and zoom for Sony and Panasonic cameras making filming more convenient.
The X-Series 3XD Pro also allows you to change the cameras aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focusing, and starting or stopping videos.
The underside of the Benro 3XD Pro handle has an adaptable 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 threaded hole for mounting the stabilizer to a tripod or other platforms. This allows you to connect the camera at a particular spot while still using the various modes such as Pan track or Lock mode.
The Benro 3XD Pro is ideal for multiple camera types such as: DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and most cameras under 8.3 lbs.
