Here's a little video (below) on how to use the Varavon Birdycam2 Gimbal Stabilizer in a compact low-mode form factor. The DJI Ronin has a setting in which you would turn the handle sideways in which they call this 'Briefcase Mode'. If we are to compare size and weight to the DJI Ronin, I guess for the Varavon it would be more like 'small handbag' mode? I'll leave it up to you guys to come up with a better name..
While I still think the DJI Ronin is worth every bit for anyone working with a camera larger than a C100, the Varavon Birdycam2 should not be left out of the equation. This is definitely a gimbal that should be considered for anyone with smaller cameras looking to travel with the most portable, lightweight, and compact gear. The entire unit is literally small enough to fit inside a normal backpack (including it's own stand). In the video i'm using a Tokina 11-16mm on the GH4 which is still far from the max capacity the Birdycam2 can handle. In fact I had to bring my PID settings down to around 23 for this setup.
In any case, if you are still considering the Varavon Birdycam2 Gimbal they are currently offering a FREE Extra Battery Promotion ($200 dollar value / limit one per customer). You'll need to upload some type of video across a few social networks to qualify, and this deal ends in just a few weeks. For more information you can check them out at their website (click here).
