Handling and Features

A small size and weight [just over 300 grams] add to the portability of the stabiliser and the built-in extension rod promises to make usage easier. The improved compatibility also mean that many large phones inside cases can also be used. The stabilisation features are based around 3 motors and an algorithm which work together to enable stable image capture and creative potential as well. Subject-tracking features are present including:

● Follow: In Follow mode, the camera view follows the gimbal’s pan and tilt movements and stays level during rolls. [Suitable for shooting up, down, and diagonally].

● Tilt Lock: The camera view only follows the gimbal’s pan movement and stays stable during tilts and rolls — [for shooting horizontally or moving around a subject].

● FPV: In FPV mode, all three axes of the gimbal follow the movement handle. [For dynamic filming of still subjects like landmarks, buildings, or statues].

● SpinShot: Push the joystick to the left or right to control the rotation of the camera view and create dynamic footage. [For shooting push, pull, and high-angle shots].

A raft of other modes are also included such as Timelapse, DynamicZoom [for stretching or compression effects], Gesture Control, and Panorama. All of which can help add to the user experience.
