Dieser Gimbal bietet jede Menge Funktionen für Foto- und Videoaufnahmen mit dem Smartphone. Die Bedienung ist hierbei nicht immer intuitiv, aber nach kurzer Zeit kommt man gut zurecht. Eine detailliertere und besser übersetzte Anleitung wäre schön, ebenso eine übersichtlichere App. Praktisch sind die Stativfüße und die Verlängerung des Gimbals durch die integrierte Teleskop-Selfiestange. Ein wenig enttäuscht bin ich von den in der App aufgenommenen Panoramaaufnahmen, die das Potenzial der verbauten Kameras in Sachen Auflösung nicht ausnutzen. Alles in allem bin ich aber durchaus zufrieden und vergebe vier Sterne.
Amazing quality much heavier than I expected but this is my first so who knows others weight. Super easy to use and performs well
The gimbal is really very simple to set and use. It comes with clear instructions in English (as well as 6 other languages) that guide you through a quick setup. After unfolding the gimbal, you install your phone into the holder. It recommends that you do so after removing the case, but my thin case was able to stay on my phone and still be secure in the holder.
The optional tripod screws in easily to the bottom of the device. Although it is lightweight, the gimbal and phone feel very sturdy while attached to it, and I'd have no problem using it that way.
I'm so happy that I ordered this gimbal. It is going to make such a huge difference in my videos, allowing me to keep my phone steady as I go.
Good video. Needs ability to use filters for the lens. Touch screen not very sensitive - hard to access the Manuel options. Needs a shade filter for the touch screen and the cam lens
I tested this is the dark and moved it a bit. While the video wasn’t stunning what it proved is that the device needs and steady intentional shot but can still perform
under non ideal conditions. I like this. Furthermore I was impressed with how it smoothed movements out.
The most important thing to know is to give yourself at least an hour to learn how this one works. You will need to download an app. Unless you play with it you won’t succeed so this step is mandatory.
Overall I am impressed. I recommended it and I will be using it at performance art shows where I can better engage with a performer. I am excited to learn this more.
The bottom line is that this isn’t for most people. This is best for those who like to geek out on their camera phone. Its an incredibly helpful tool for many but not all shots.
