Varavon Birdycam Lite Gimbal Inverted Mode Test

Here’s a quick field test of the Varavon Birdycam Lite using inverted mode. Inverted mode is a great way to get a higher angle without having to over extend your arms. It’s also useful for getting a clear view of your camera’s LCD screen without the need for an external field monitor. With an already light weight form factor, the Birdycam Lite is quickly becoming my favorite run and gun gimbal.

    have you tried this on a monopod yet? If so, it’s useful on a monopod?

      I haven’t tried it yet but according to Cheesycam it’s pretty useful. I think the main benefit is being able to do high angle booming shots. Is that what you had in mind?

        I was thinking it could help a lot with fatigue as you could could keep the monopod slightly shorter than normal and then rest it on the ground when you need to.

          Yeah that shouldn’t be a problem at all. Hard to tell from the above picture but the top handle has a row of 1/4-20 threads to attach the monopod. You could probably even keep the side handles on since they are so lightweight. Sounds like a good idea.

          To be honest, I haven’t had much of an issue with fatigue on this gimbal. Really fits the perfect weight class between a small handheld gimbal and the Ronin M.

    awesome thanks for the videos Rik! I bought a Came gimbal about a year ago but it was so much trouble to get balanced I never really used it… these seem to have come a long way in terms of ease of setup!
