From another perspective, the SCORP Mini 2 is compatible with a wider range of devices, such as GoPro Hero action cameras, as well as Android phones and iPhones. If you plan to use the gimbal in daily life or when traveling, or if you have a smaller camera and want the flexibility to shoot with different devices to suit different styles and needs, the SCORP Mini 2 is a more suitable for you.
