I would send a photo of this to Blackmagic and ask them if they would be interested in one designed for the micro. If you balance it for the camera specifically all you would need is fore aft movement for different lenses. Add the encoders and watch your bank account fill up. Do it before another company claims a game changer with this design. I think this is gimbal porn, just pure sexy.

Yeah Greg, when I started design with the gimabal I showed the sketches to my wife with question: is it enough sexy? She laugh, but understood my meaning. Except the minimum weight and usability the nice view was my concern as well. Back in to the question, I just now consider the design for Blackmagic micro and in this case I need more information about this camera. Maybe someone from the community have 3d drawings; it will be very use full for me during design phase.

Chris, it is processing in the negative moulds and repeatable quality for each parts. It is a wed process, vacuum sack.

In case of encoder, it is a next step and know that it it is necessity. If some of you are interesting with support with this topic, I'm open for discussion and cooperation.

If you contact Blackmagic they should provide you with drawings as a product developer. After all it sells their product.

jacekheli - Here is a link for the New BlackMagic Mini for multi-Rotors with exact dimensions on one of the specification pages. Awesome gimbal design. I will certainly buy one if they are for sale...
