Why you need a gimbal
Even with the latest advances in onboard stabilization technology, camera shake can still be hard to control in certain shooting conditions. Handheld single-axis gimbals can be helpful when heavy lenses are attached to the camera, for example, and for wildlife photography, when you need something less rigid than a tripod or monopod. A gimbal is even more indispensable when shooting video, helping to make tilts, pans and rolls appear as smooth as possible.
- A gimbal stabilizes your camera to help alleviate shake and blur.
- Handheld gimbals give you freedom and mobility.
- Some gimbals can be used as a tripod head.
- Others can be attached to various types of rigs.
Gimbals for Phones
Most smartphones now come with fairly advanced photo and video features and are capable of capturing high-quality images. (Steven Soderbergh recently shot the entire Netflix series High Flying Bird on an iPhone 8 using a DJI Osmo stabilizer.) Smartphone gimbal mounts can accommodate devices of various sizes, and they literally put control in the palm of your hand.

Gimbals for Cameras
The type of gimbal you need depends on your camera’s size and format. To find the right one, factor in the total gross weight of your camera and lens combination, plus the overall dimensions of your camera. The most popular gimbals come in a handheld form. The more sophisticated ones can be used as attachments to various types of rigs, including cranes, cable cams and aerial drones.
The detachable, modular design of the Ronin-S makes it easy to fit inside a backpack on your travels. You can easily mount the camera onto the gimbal for tracking shots or on a tripod for stills.
Gudsen MOZA Air 2
Four high-rate Li-Ion 18650 rechargeable batteries give the MOZA Air 2 a maximum runtime of 16 hours. You can easily bring extra batteries with you to last through a whole day of filming.
Zhiyun Weebill Lab
Compatible with most mirrorless cameras, it’s ideal for run-and-gun filmmakers. It can be held upright or in an underslug position. You can lock axes and save them to memory for the next time.
Gimbals for Cinema
A steady, floating camera shot adds incredible production value to your motion pictures. Keep in mind: a 2-axis gimbal only stabilizes the tilt and roll axis, while 3-axis gimbals offer additional stabilization on the pan axis. A 3-axis gimbal gives you more freedom to manoeuvre and silky-smooth dynamic moving shots.
