When taking videos of moving subjects, unwanted jerks often take away from the splendour of the moment. If your goal is to take smooth, steady videos, then adding a gimbal to your setup is key. With built-in motors, a gimbal picks up on these shaky movements and smooth them out as you move. This means that you can follow subjects at a quick pace without worrying about the quality of your footage.
Sure, you can use a tripod for more stable footage, but it does not offer the same manoeuvrability as a motorised gimbal. Made for digital cameras, a gimbal is the best way to keep your camera steady without a tripod. A handheld gimbal is lightweight enough for shooting for extended periods of time. It is also easy to handle, which means that you can effortlessly change the direction of the camera whether it is to pan, tilt or roll. The built-in computer knows which movements are intentional.
Although a gimbal cannot replace professional video gear such as dollies, jibs and sliders, don’t waste your time setting up heavy gear if you don’t need to. Gimbals are made to take with you wherever you go. Simply, take them out of your bag, set up and get shooting in no time.
As with most gimbals on the market, the Weebill-S is a 3-axis handheld gimbal that quickly responds to fast movement while keeping your shots steady. Simply mount your digital camera combo onto the handheld gimbal and get moving.
