Intro

Introduction

Micro 4th Axis or Z-Axis with Handle 

Also works with GoPro's using our GoPro Adapter

Smooth out your bumpy DJI Pocket 2 footage with a pocket-able Z Axis specifically designed with an adjustable custom load spring made just for the Pocket 2. 

Combining the adjustable load spring with the adjustable bounce damping allows you to fine-tune your Pocket 2 Rig to perfection! The 4th axis uses the naked Pocket 2 on the tripod base screw to attach and it also works with the naked Pocket 2 on the do-it-all handle. 

Although our Slim Pocket 2 Cases can attach to the mount, only the Standard Slim Case (i.e. not the one that takes the do-it-all handle) is light enough to work with it.

More Details

We all know what an amazing piece of kit the DJI Pocket 2 is - and it all fits easily in a pocket with space for more!

But this extreme lightness is actually its 'Achilles Heel'!

With virtually no weight there's none of the typical resistance that assists us in keeping our arm steady. Take a look around at YouTube reviews of the Pocket and as soon as the reviewer starts walking you'll see the characteristic bobbing motion.

We've got plenty of experience making 4th Axis or Z Axis stabilizers for bigger rigs so we knew we could come up with a great solution that not only worked great but was also still pocket-able. After over 20 prototypes we've been able to craft a solution that exceeded all our expectations and we're so excited to share it with you! 

We are the innovators

Common Z Axis stabilizers have a problem. When speeding up or slowing down those Z axes can bounce uncontrollably making parts of the footage unusable. Back when we started there were no handheld Z Axis stabilizers with bounce damping and as such they had a bad rep among the pros. That's when we designed our proprietary fluid damping system that gave us the edge in effective smoothing.

All our stabilizers (even including our Pocket 2 Micro) have adjustable bounce damping built in. This takes a little longer to get used to than spring only stabilizers but once you get the hang of things you'll find the results are far superior. 

Getting Started Guide - This is for the Pocket 1 but is essentially the same

 

We've packed so much into this little package - here's some more great features:-

  • It has two brass and one Alloy 1/4-20 attachment points for mounting to a tripod, monopod or even to attach gear like audio, micro lighting or even a battery pack!
  • Fits multi-port accessories
  • The allen key for adjusting the spring and damping is stored conveniently in the base of the handle.
  • Why not put your Pocket 2 Micro 4th Axis on the end of a Mono-pod for those faux crane shots or to discreetly get above the crowd in a show! 
  • With this handle version you can invert the handle and easily get that creative dogs eye shooting angle without having to bend over!

"I just wanted to send you an email to say a big thank you"..."I wanted to share how ‘wowed’ I am!   Not only are your products brilliant and ridiculously good value but I am so knocked out by the business you have created and the way technology has enabled you to do what you do.   I suppose I just wanted to say how brilliant it feels as a customer to be part of what you are doing; you really are inspiring"
