There was a time when you needed a video camera in order to shoot good video footage. But that’s not necessarily true anymore.
While professional video cameras and stabilized OSS Lenses will always deliver the best video performance, the cameras on your smartphone are more capable than ever before.
Since most people have a smartphone, using the camera on your phone is a great way to start filming without spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a camera. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t problems with doing that.
Have you ever tried to take a cute video with your phone, only to have it ruined by blurry or shaky footage? That might be fine if you’re capturing footage of your baby’s first steps, but if you’re trying to produce Youtube videos or film viral content, you want your videos to look their best, even if it is just a video of a cat being silly.
You may have heard of gimbal stabilizers for DSLR cameras. Well, there are also gimbal stabilizers available for your smartphone or GoPro camera as well.
A phone gimbal is a device that you slide your phone into and by using 3 axis gimbal technology brings buttery cinematic footage to your videos. Simply put, it prevents your smartphone from camera shake, which is especially useful during moving shots.
A gimbal can be described as a pivoted point that allows you to rotate an object along a single axis. You can capture incredible images from various angles by shooting with a gimbal. It is mostly used while making videos but can also help in capturing amazing still photos. You can rotate your camera smoothly in different directions by combining three separate gimbals. It will provide you with three axes to rotate on your handheld video

Before the introduction of gimbals, camera operators can move around their camera on a tripod or by holding in your hands. Now, they can actually take their cameras through anything and anywhere with the help of gimbals, due to their compact design, gimbals can be carried and can make steady movement shots that would otherwise require massive large camera rigs.
Option for a wide variety of motions
You may take lots of time to set up a shot more particularly when various movement tools are required for this purpose. But a Gimbal allows photographers and videographers to shoot similar shots in much less time as it allows them to move your camera easily in different ways without wasting their time and efforts.
Do not forget your creative potential
Though you can capture amazing images with the help of a gimbal, you should not forget that your creative skills instead of a new device dictate your creation.
Vertical movement is still shown
Though you can tilt, roll and pan your camera on various axes by using multiple gimbals, you should not lose your focus from the vertical movement of your camera as it is not controlled by any of the axis in the gimbal. Any kind of vertical movement can affect the quality of your video.
