Clicking-like sound coming from my gimbal?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I recently was out in shoot in the desert when I noticed a clicking-like noise coming from what sounds like my gimbal, I own a GPI Pro rig if that info helps.

Does anyone know any leads of what might be the cause of it? I noticed it particularly when i was walking with the rig.

Thanks,

Joseph H.

Hi Joseph,

 

I don't think it is the gimbal. "clicking-like" noise generates by metal knocking metal.

When the arm and the sled are under load, if having mechanical problem (broken bearing...), will generates squeaking sound.

If it was the gimbal you already noticed right away by the feel of your fingers and the balance of the sled.

 

Check your vest and dangling cables.

 

Cheers,

 

Ken Nguyen.

I would think that sound is coming from your top stage. Adjust the tightness of the front to back worm gear with the special tool they provide and see if that fixes the noise. It should be adjusted under a load (with a camera mounted)

Is your gimbal still smooth?

Otherwise the gimbal does make a single click when switching from high to low mode, it's the bearing reseating itself in the other side of the groove, and it's perfectly normal with the PRO gimbal.
