The Feiyu AK4000 is the flagship in FeiyuTech’s professional gimbal range. Its staggering 4kg maximum payload is capable of supporting a wide variety of professional DSLR’s and Mirrorless camera and lens combinations.

4kg Payload Capacity

The AK4000 is designed to be able to support the weight of mirrorless systems such as the Sony a7 and a9 series, Nikon’s Z range, Canon’s EOS R range and Panasonic’s Lumix G series through to DSLRs such as the Nikon D850, Canon EOS 5DIV and even professional cinema cameras such as the Canon C300 II.

Removable Carbon Fibre Extension Rod

The powerful torque motors on the AK4000 support a payload from a minimum 150g to 4000g and make use of an improved algorithm to deliver super-smooth stabilisation performance. Despite the hefty maximum payload, the actual gimbal itself weighs only approximately 1400g (excluding batteries). A removable carbon fibre extension handle adds improved creative versatility while keeping weight to a minimum.

Angled Rear Motor for Improved Visibility

Its updated design places the rear roll motor lower than traditional gimbals. This delivers improved visibility to the back of the camera, ensuring your framing and composition are spot on for a uncompromising shooting experience. This functionality combined with a silicone rubber covering on the handgrip make the AK4000 one of the most comfortable and practical gimbals available.

Unique Touchscreen Control

The AK4000’s display screen with touch functionality is a first for gimbals and is designed to make selecting different gimbal modes or changing settings easier. The gimbal also includes a lock screen button to minimise the chance of changing settings accidently. Feiyutech have also provided the ability to change camera settings like ISO and white balance directly from the gimbal, creating a seamless shooting experience.

Large Control Dial

A large multi-functional control knob on the side of the gimbal handle allows you to change focus and zoom settings on your camera. Alternatively, with a long press you can enter axis direction mode and toggle between controlling the tilt, roll or pan axis motors of the gimbal independently with the dial.

Compatible with Manfrotto Quick Release Plate

Designed to be easy quick to balance the gimbal is compatible with the Manfrotto PL501 quick release plate. You can have the plate already mounted on your camera and for ultra-quick setup.

Stay Connected with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

With both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules the gimbal and camera can be connected via the Feiyu ON APP to allow calibration and adjustments. The app can also be used to modify the strength of the motors and check the firmware version of the gimbal.

Built-in Time-lapse and Auto Rotation Modes

Capture smooth looking time-lapse footage and setup your shot to move between pre-determined points with control over the recording and interval times as well. Perfect for content creators, the function is great for b-roll footage and shots that require repeatable, consistent movement.

Choice of Gimbal Control Modes

The AK4000 features three main modes that gimbal operators will be familiar with. A lock mode sets the direction and pitch and locks every axis to keep the camera pointed the same direction no matter what. The pan follow mode ensures that the gimbal only follows the operator movements from left to right but doesn’t pitch up or down. Finally there is the all-follow mode that gives operator smooth control over both the pitch and the panning axes.

Quick Response “Hunting Mode”

There is also a new mode, by holding the trigger button of the gimbal, it can be set it to the quick follow or “Hunting mode” that is designed for quick response, perfectly matched for those times when you need to keep up with fast moving subjects.

New “Space Mode” for Complete Flexibility

An all-new “Space Mode” allows for advanced control that gives the operator the ability to make the gimbal follow movements along all three axes. This means that in addition to following the pan and tilt movements like traditional gimbals, the AK4000 can also follow the roll axis for dramatic ‘Dutch angle’ style shots.

Long Battery Life

The AK 4000 takes four polymer lithium 2200mAh batteries and is capable of an impressive 12 hours of operation time when balanced properly. Combined with its compact design, this makes the gimbal an excellent addition to your travel film-making kit.

Supports a Range of Accessories

The Feiyutech AK4000 can be expanded with a range of additional accessories like the multi-functional extension bracket that adds extra support and mounting points. There is also a co-axial double gear follow focus system for precise focus control as well as a carbon fibre extension rod, dual handle grip and even a body mount system.
