We know that Gimbals are a hot item and we get a ton of emails and comments from fans asking about different ones. So, we thought we would just give a quick run down of why Gimbals are so important to use! And what to look for when choosing one.
Anyone that has been filming with a GoPro for a while realizes the potential to make epic videos. But, often times what you thought you got was rad footage, you later realize when watching at home.. that the footage is very shaky, maybe bumpy, and not definitely not steady. This can be quite frustrating and discouraging to get out there and keep filming! Even the professionals, use some sort of gimbal or stabilizer to ensure amazing video. So the purpose of the gimbal is to help reduce or eliminate shaky, bumpy videos. So you have steady, smooth, beautiful videos!
A Gimbal Stabilizer differs from simple stabilizers in that they usually have a 3 axis system that uses several motors to keep the camera steady. This makes the Gimbal Stabilizers more expensive than the simple stabilizers, but they give you more control on how you can angle the camera. Many of them have special features such as a rechargeable batteries you can replace for other batteries when first ones run out. To make your video sessions last longer.
There are many different gimbal stabilizers out there today. To help you decide which one is best for you and your camera here are some key points to consider:
– Camera Weight & Gimbal Construction/Design.. is the gimbal and the camera compatible together?
– Is it easy to assemble?
– Other Reviews.. do your research
The latest Gimbal Stabilizer I reviewed is called a 3-Axis wearable gimbal, and it is pretty awesome!!
What does “wearable” mean?? Because the design allows you to mount it on a motorcycle helmet, chest mount harness, pole, suction cup, and many more! What a handheld gimbal CAN’T do!
