BlackMagic Micro Cine Camera - PRO GIMBAL

Announcing the BMMCC Pro Gimbal

HighCee developed this precision engineered gimbal to meet the needs of demanding videographers who require a light weight, 360 degree rotation gimbal for professional level videography.

With the BlackMagic Micro Cine Camera and an appropriate MFT lens, the system weighs between 1000 and 1200 grams making it suitable for a wide range of multirotor aircraft and handheld applications.

Mounting options include direct mounting and universal rail mounting systems for 10mm and 12mm rails spaced between 150 and 265mm apart. A handheld rig with support for an HDMI screen will be available Q3 2017.

A custom cable specifically designed for the BMMCC and the Pro gimbal is included. This cable allows complete remote control of the camera and gimbal, using an SBus compliant transmitter/receiver. Composite video is available through the gimbal to allow real-time video transmission from the camera to your ground station monitor.

An optional 2000mW (2 Watt) 5.8MHz video transmitter (VTX) is available as part of the gimbal/camera system. This provides 10+Km transmission range and supports HD video to allow your ground station operator to view exactly what the camera can see. Combined with the sBus cable to control the camera functions, this accessory is a valuable add-on for serious videographers. The VTX module attaches to the vertical gimbal arm. It requires a 12V supply and is priced at $220 including the omnidirectional 3dB antenna.   

HDMI transmitters (e.g. Connex Animom) weighing up to 175 grams can be mounted on the rear vertical arm or on the horizontal yaw arm. We are able to produce custom mounts for VTX systems.

Pre-order pricing includes factory balancing the camera/gimbal with your choice of lens e.g. Panasonic Lumix 14mm up to the longer and  heavier Panasonic 14-45mm OIS zoom.  If your lens system is significantly different, please enquire regarding suitability. It is assumed that the camera system will include a battery, BMMCC Pro gimbal cable, MFT lens and two filters. There is plenty of adjustment on the baseplate to allow the camera position to be changed by the user to accommodate a wide range of lens and balance combinations. In addition, the gimbal PID settings and firmware are fully accessible by the user to fine-tune the system for a specific situation. Full instructions are provided.

Orders are filled on a first-come basis. Customized fittings and cables are available.  Please eMail deegee (at) highcee.com for more information.
