Telling your own story has never been so easy. You have a smartphone right? Now add a Benro 3XS Lite gimbal to make your own movies. It stabilises your footage for that smooth cinematic effect. It is easy to set up and use and folds down to the size of a phone to take up minimal storage space while travelling. The motors also lock so the gimbal remains in place while in your bag. It works with iOS and Android smartphones up to 250g in weight and 3.5″ wide, and action cameras with an optional adaptor. A 2000 mAh capacity battery provides up to 24-hours of use, and a 3.5mm audio jack lets you add great audio to your videos.
Filming angles and rotation
The Benro 3XS Lite is a 3-axis gimbal with pan, tilt and zoom rotation for all axes. It lets you go from shooting in landscape to portrait orientation with the single press of a button. Also, an adjustable swivel handle lets you capture video from different angles: Use the underslung mode for low-angle filming, and the upright mode for high- and medium-angle filming.
Switch between Universal Follow and Locked Down modes for different uses:
- Universal Follow: Provides smooth camera movements towards the direction you’re aiming. Use this mode when circling around a subject or when making several dynamic camera movements while following a subject.
- Locked Down: Provides smooth movement based on where you move the camera horizontally. Use this mode for dynamic panning movements around corners.
Use the companion smartphone app to customise the buttons on your gimbal and calibrate your 3XS lite to create panoramas and time-lapse with dynamic motion.
The underside of the Benro 3XS Lite handle has a ¼”-20 threaded hole for mounting the stabiliser to a tripod or using desired mounted accessories. This allows you to use the 3XS Lite handsfree during panorama or motion time-lapse modes, as well as during Object or Face Tracking modes.
