Gimbals are small devices that attach to the bottom of a camera or smartphone and compensate for movement so that shots remain stable. Gimbals come in different sizes, designs and price ranges. Most gimbals are designed for smartphones and cameras weighing up to 1 kg. Zhiyun, DJI and Osmo are the most famous manufacturers of gimbals.
A gimbal consists of two or more axes that are connected to each other and balance each other. Most gimbals have three axes: a pan axis, a tilt axis, and a roll axis. The roll axis is the axis around which the camera or smartphone is rotated. The swivel axis is responsible for moving the camera or smartphone up and down. The tilt angle axis allows the camera or smartphone to tilt up to 90 degrees to the left or right.
Most gimbals come with a remote control that allows you to start and stop the camera or smartphone, as well as change the recording mode. Some gimbals also have a tripod mode that allows you to mount the device on a tripod.
Gimbals are often used for video recording, as they compensate for the movements of the camera or smartphone and thus ensure stable recordings. However, gimbals are also useful for photography, as you can use them to take panoramic shots or perform slow pans.
