1. EVO Shift
With EVO Shift you can change your normal smartphone camera to a professional video camera to shoot pro-quality videos and photos. It can help you shoot smooth & professional shots.
Customer Review: “I was looking for a gimbal for professional and personal use. After doing some research I settled on the EVO Shift. I received it yesterday and have been learning how to use it. There is a small learning curve in the operation, but nothing you have to go to college for.
I did have some troubles with the unit but after a short phone call to their support team, the problem was solved. The lady was very patient and clear on instructions to fix the problem.
The only negative I have is the instructions tell you to go to their website to check out instructional videos. The problem is that they have no videos on their website. However, a quick search on YouTube got me the instructions I needed. The video is from EVO but it is not on their website.
Despite the lack of videos on their website, I would still highly recommend this unit.” MagicClown
Another great product for video making, live videos, and Vlog for your Mobile which also fits your budget. So we can consider this as the best choice under budget.
Customer Review: “I didn’t expected the battery last the whole day. You can use their apps to record and take picture, otherwise you can use without their apps but you have to manually recorded/stop. Connecting thru bluetooth was easy but you have to their apps to fully utilize their functions (record/snapshot/zoom). You can put your phone horizontally or vertically. There is adjustable clamp to hold the phone and extended swivel arm (not holding arm).
Cons: the joystick move kinda fast, I have to get used to it when recording. I wish they can make it go slowly (using step motor?)” Rin Mieru
It is very lightweight and portable you can easily carry it anywhere to shoot videos and take professional shots.
Customer Review: ” I have an Osmo Mobile 2 which worked well for what I used it for, although the big issue with it was that you were unable to (easily) use an external microphone (in my case a Shure MV88). I had to fashion a solution with a lightning cable extension, cable ties and hockey tape. My main reason for purchasing the Mobile 3 was that it now looks possible to mount the microphone direct. I can confirm that this is the case and it works well. See photo.
Amongst other improvements are the ability to switch from portrait to landscape mode with the touch of a button (good for the tik tok generation), better tracking of objects and foldable construction making it easier to pocket. From what I’ve seen so far there is much more movement available and I’m not hitting the extremities of the gimbals movement range as soon as I was with the Mobile 2. For $119; it’s a no brainier upgrade from the Mobile 2″ BigGinge
This one comes with perfect compatibility, it is the upgraded version of the iSteady Mobile and works great with the Android smartphone, even it also works perfectly with the iPhone.
Customer Review: “This gimbal is very easy to learn how to use, when you pair it with their app, the Hohem Gimbal App, you really start learning everything you can do. Pairing the device to your phone is simple and within just a few minutes you will be up and running.
This gimbal also comes really nicely packaged in a travel worthy (and gift worthy) case. This would make a fantastic gift item.
The App allows for a lot of functions:
1. Auto-face tracking shooting
2. Select object tracking shooting
3. Motion timelapse
4. Single click to panorama
6. Setting zoom/focus slider in the APP
7. Adjustment of camera & stabilizer parameter
8. Firmware upgrade in the APP
9. Slow Motion” SCainTop
It supports the Filmic Pro app and the product is the result 0f the Smooth 4 and FiLMiC Pro collaboration. It let your phone shoot like a filmmaking camera for perfect videos & Pictures.
Customer Review: ” Fantastic gimbal used with my Iphone 8 and this was tested over the course of multiple uses…
Very well Built Gimbal, I use it with my iPhone 8 and it works perfectly…some key aspects are:
Stabilization is extremely smooth
lots of features (panorama, time lapse, movement time lapse, long exposure mode are my favorites and these items are NOT found in my already owned DJI Osmo (with built in camera))
Has manual capability to set ISO, Shutter speed, white balance, exposure compensation…these are important for quality film making but auto mode also works great” Ryan Chernochan
A professional and great Gimbal for the smartphone which born for Recording. It contains a 3D “inception” mode and an updated & very fresh sports mode, and also it contains all of the other basic Gimbal features to give you the best experience.
Customer Review: “Arrived as expected, very sturdy and nice hard case, I got all the accessories as advertised. It’s easy to set-up, just mount my Iphone 7 to the gimbal and it will adjust balance automatically. HOHEM provides YouTube tutorials which I watched to learn all the different features. I already tried this Gimbal several times and it works great.” Arborstone
A lightweight but very powerful Stabilizer, it only weighs 440g. It is a 3-axis gimbal so you do not need to worry about image dithering and blurring. It uses the high molecular compound material and gives you a very comfortable grip.
Customer Review: ” I am glad with the purchase of the new Cinepeer Gimbal almost a week back. I already own another Gimbal from Zhiyun which is Smooth Q bought few months ago. When I wanted to buy one more, started researching and came across this revised one powered by Zhiyun. I got it last week and it turns out that my choice was not wrong. Overall this works fine. Based on my time I used it, wanted to share few thoughts about the gimbal.” MaheshKrishnan P
Gimbal that supports 360° movements, it has a freshly developed inception Mode which helps your phone to vertically rotate to 360°. With little effort, you can also make 3D fantasy HD videos with it.
Customer Review: “I got this product primarily because I shoot videos of myself for YouTube and I wanted to have a virtual camera-person so that it looked like someone was filming me. Face tracking in the app does a pretty good job with that as long as you don’t move too fast. Otherwise, the gimbal is totally as expected. It stabilizes quite well, and the different modes are very useful in changing the behavior of the stabilization.
Battery life seems great — I can’t imagine it running out for me even if I did a lot of shooting in a day. A friend of mine has a DJI gimbal which costs ~50% more and this performed very very close to my experience with that one. Especially if you’re amateur/semi-pro like me, you should be fine with this.” Robby Lennon
FeiyuTech Vimble 2S is known for its stability and in terms of stability, it is better than its competitors. It features Low Power Consumption, smooth, and Bigger Motor Torque.
Customer Review: “I have never used a gimbal before so I don’t have a frame of reference to compare to. This product is fine at its primary purpose; hold camera steady. Operation though is a bit tricky as it maintains its direction even as you turn to follow the action, this may just require practice to overcome.
The biggest drawback for me is the button layout: the fire button is awkwardly below the directional button making it difficult to reacting from following to shooting, causing the whole rig to be jiggled as one reacts. The selfie stick function is nice for better, less distorted selfies.” Shaun McDowell
As the name suggests it is really pocket-size and very light in weight so you do not need to worry about carrying on your travel. It is portable so you can easily take it anywhere and take smooth pictures & videos.
Customer Review: “Pros: This gimbal is AMAZING!!! If you’re not hooked on the fact it folds, then you could get hooked on its’ ease of use, its’ mobility, and the friendliness of the business. It is very easy and simple to use, and can turn anyone into a professional fast. The app takes quality photos, and easily compares to a Canon DSLR!! Of course, it also depends on your phones camera quality as well. I was using a Samsung S8+.
Cons: This Gimbal is designed only for right handed use, as it doesn’t have the same Range of Motion in the left hand, as it does in the right.” Firehusky Studios
11. MOZA Mini-S
MOZA Mini-S comes with the slim body and it can be easily folded so you can easily carry it outside without a second thought, it will easily fit a normal space. So if you love traveling then this Android Gimbal Stabilizer will be a perfect fit for your phone.
Customer Review: “Wow! For only $75 I was not expecting this. This is amazing. It is very sturdy and has some heft, so it feels like a quality product. I love that it folds so that it’s compact enough to fit in my tech bag without taking up too much room. This thing works great with my iPhone X, there is no jittering like some users reported with other stabilizers and your video is very smooth and professional looking.
I love the fact that it’s rechargeable and it recharges quickly too. My only issue is the phone app for itself. The colors are way off on their app, so I recommend using the stock camera or another camera app. Hopefully they fix this, but I didn’t deduct any stars for this since the product itself is perfect and you don’t need the app to use it.” Zak
It is the upgraded version of the Hohem iSteady Mobile and it has a 3-axis stabilizing system. It will perfectly fit your mobile to take stable & professional videos and pictures.
Customer Review: “I’m so glad I talked Santa into packing this device into the sleigh. As far as adult toys go this is the childhood equivalent of a new baseball glove and bat, a bicycle, and a pinball machine all rolled up into one. (Did I just give up my generational handicap?) I elected to go for the iSteady Mobile because it would work with both my iPhone and, with the adapter, my Go Pro Hero 5 as well. Test videos using both devices have produced silky smooth videos.
There are a few limitations when using the Go Pro but using the voice command or my Go Pro remote took care of those problems in a nano-second. Using the iPhone on the gimbal I find that that thing will do more tricks than a Vegas hooker holding a BOGO sale, programmed time-lapse, face recognition and specialized gimbal presets just to name a few. I haven’t tried other gimbals, but, in this old guy’s opinion, I think this one works great. Highly recommended.” Edward N. Ryan Jr.
It comes with the 3 working modes, Locking Mode, Pan Following Mode, and Following Mode. You can easily move the rocking bar to all of the directions to shoot from different angles.
Customer Review: “Purchased this to make YouTube videos, I didn’t want to spend much and I will say for the price this is pretty good deal. I’ve had a couple of glitches but if you use the app instead of the regular phone camera it works nicely. I’ve had it for a few months and no major issues!” Laly.224
It is made out of the very high-performance material so it is strong & powerful. In terms of design it is very simple and can be controlled remotely. The product is tested and compatible with the smartphone of all major brands.
Customer Review: “I’m sure a lot of you Guys and Girls uses Snapchat, Instagram and other social media platforms to post short videos, as many of you I can’t stand shaky videos, Its just super annoying! when my video shakes just a little. I cancel it and record again!! 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ I was looking for a smaller size gimbal to use with my iPhone 11 pro max on the go, And honestly was surprised when I first saw vlog pocket, Literally The smallest gimbal I’ve seen! basically it’s exactly the size of an IPhone when its folded. Not variety of color options but glad they made it in black.
I did my research after finding this gimbal. There are some competitors on the market of course, but for a cheap price and small size this definitely wins. It’s made of good quality plastic. Its very lightweight, the Instructions are really simple and easy to follow. But Most importantly you don’t have to go through the hassle of balancing Phone on it, every time you use it. just clip your phone and gimbal will do its job.” Al.
A great Gimbal for the beginner Youtubers to start making quality & professional videos with just their Android smartphone.
Customer Review: “As on 1st of June 2018: One of the worst half baked electronic products I ever bought. And a huge missed opportunity for the company, they could really have nailed some of the prossumer bracket gimbal market… What a shame…Works as advertised on iPhone, tested on iPhone ten, all there, including full 4K video… but is a utter disaster on Android. Can’t believe they decided to put it on the market and advertise it as compatible with Android. There is no excuse for it, a product launched unfinished, placed on the market with the expectation that we, the customers/consummers will buy it and hopefully wait for the day…if ever the correct software will be available.
I have tried, tested and spent days going around all the possible scenarios. I struggled to make it work on few Android phones, LG, S9 and Note 8 . The app is incredible buggy, unresponsive, limited to 1080p, some annoying artifacts on video when recorded via the app, vertigo function not working, motion time lapse not working, and the worst of the worst…the zooming function is jumping in huge steps, unusable, 100 times better done right on the phone via the native app slider. Using it outside the app, as a “dumb” gimbal in no way justifies the price. Mine is in a box on the way to return. Since I don’t feel like paying to became a product tester for this company I will wait for DJI to bring a similar one on the market.” GG
