FeiyuTech has announced its latest gimbal for mirrorless cameras, the AK2000C. The announcement comes only a couple of weeks after DJI launched its own gimbal aimed at the same audience; the RSC 2.

The AK2000C is designed primarily for mirrorless cameras, but its 2.2kg payload - while less than the 3kg capacity of the RSC 2 - still makes it suitable a full-frame DSLR like a Canon 5D Mark IV or Nikon D850 with a reasonably light lens attached. Three-axis mechanical locks and calibration arrow markings help make it easy to balance varying camera/lens combos.

Stabilization smoothness is ensured by a W7 precision control algorithm that's designed to quickly offset picture flutter and blur. Other features include an OLED touchscreen on the gimbal, enabling one-touch control of settings like time lapse, selfie mode, white balance, ISO, exposure compensation, and 360° pan.

But despite all this tech, the AK2000C weighs in at just 1078g, making it one of the lightest gimbals on the market for full-frame interchangeable lens cameras and ideal for extended periods of single-handed use. Part of the weight reduction may be due to a smaller capacity battery, which at 7 hours runtime is significantly less than the quoted 12-hour runtime of the DJI RSC 2. However, the AK2000C does support boost charging, where the battery can be filled in just one hour. It can also be charged while the gimbal is in use.

The FeiyuTech AK2000C is available now, priced at just $229. To put this in perspective, that's less than half the price of DJI's RSC 2, and not much more than some smartphone gimbals.
