    Great gimbal for a mid-weight cinema camera

    This is a great gimbal for our Panasonic EVA-1 camera. Once balanced, this performed fantastic. And it provides a pretty good back workout!

    great upgrade for my setup at this price!

    I use this with my ring Elgato ring light. It basically comes with the Elgato Master Mount S and this attaches to it perfectly. My camera is so stable now that i use this. It would probably work on any stand as long as it is round and maybe even some that aren't but it is definitely made to mount on something round.

    Great quality and all the other attachments like their flex arm kits work with the end if you need better angles.

    Ronin

    As an amateur videographer, I have no idea what half of these reviewers are talking about when it comes to this device. To me, it works flawlessly. It was pretty easy for me to set up. I just followed the directions in the booklet that comes with it, I didn't even have to watch a video. You set up each axis (after you attach your camera) and away it goes. You don't technically have to install the software to use this, but I'd go ahead and recommend it. It made things a lot easier to calibrate.

    Best selling gimbal for a reason!

    WOW! This gimbal is wonderful. Comes in a great case that has enough room to store a few extra accessories. I added the focus motor two weeks after purchasing this, so I would recommend getting the Pro Combo right away. This gimbal is easy to set up, battery life is great, and it holds my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6k with a large lens. You just need to get a case to offset the camera a little.

    Suits many purposes

    Make sure to follow the instructions putting everything together. The stand is well built and the light is very bright. I did have some issues with the microphone on my iPhone 12 Pro Max, but I suspect it’s apples clips software. The only feedback on the red piece the microphone snaps into is flimsy plastic and seems like it won’t last. Not a dealbreaker at all.

    Awesome gimbal for price and size

    Having used the DJI Ronin M stabilizer for a couple years, as well as trying the Ronin S and hating it, going to this was a much better experience. I chose the smaller RSC 2 because my heaviest combination is only 4lbs, so it didn't make sense to get the more expensive RS.

    Pros:

    Much lighter than both Ronin S and M (VERY IMPORTANT)

    When packed up it takes a very small amount of space which is VERY IMPORTANT! The portability of this stabilizer is the main reason I got it. I travel often without much luggage and it's much nicer to carry this around than a huge Pelican case that's 50lbs (Ronin M) or another heavy stabilizer like the Ronin S.

    Incredibly capable for size and price point

    Lots of features and customizability - ability to change modes, capabilities, gimbal add-ons, etc.

    CALIBRATION!! It is SO much easier to calibrate because the axis locks in every direction. This is a godsend!

    Build quality is exceptional, just like in every other DJI product.

    Battery lasts a LONG time (12-16 hours for me depending on usage)

    Has a screen!

    Once you get past the learning curve, you'll have a lot of fun with it!

    Cons: Steep learning curve. The amount of modes it has can be both an advantage and disadvantage. I recommend taking at least a day to learn how the modes and the gimbal itself works.

    ALMOST doesn't fit my camera size-wise BUT supports weight-wise (Canon 80D with 18-35mm 1.8)

    Doesn't support heavier cameras (that's what the full-size RS2 is for)

    Light weight and upgraded features

    Ronin S size and weight made it extremely cumbersome when traveling. With the new folding design and reduced weight, I decided to upgrade! Not only is it lighter and easier to carry it has some excellent upgraded features. The front scroll wheel can manage focus, ISO, or aperture control. The display on the back now allows you to manage the RSC2 set up without needing to open the phone app! It's the perfect travel gimbal!!

    I might upgrade to RSC2 Pro combo or even Rs2 pro combo soon to utilize all the features. RavenEye seems exciting.

    Good Product

    It seemed like a perfect fit to help achieve nice and smooth shots on my Sony A7S3, but it does not work with my Zeiss CP2 Cinema lens set so I was limited and am having to rerun it. It is a solid product overall and the setup is easy, but think it should have had more

    options for working with different lens sizes.

    Great capacity, easy to use, super smooth.

    This gimbal is incredible! Very easy to balance, easy to use, and incredibly smooth. Definitely worth the money. It holds my a7r4 and 24-70 gm lens no problem. The battery life is also incredible. I can shoot an entire wedding, sometimes 2, on one battery.

    Best Prosumer Gimbal on the market?

    Using it with my A7III and a bunch of lenses (some quite heavy like 24-70GM) and handles everything without a hitch. Feature packed (haven't even been able to use most of them yet), excellent quality, and the combo pack is a solid deal (relative to the underlying gimbal-only price).

    Perfect for GoPro in water

    The GoPro hand grip is an amazing add-on for your GoPro Hero9. I bought this to use it with my GoPro when snorkeling in middle of the ocean. As stated, this makes your GoPro float in water as expected. This put my mind at ease, giving me a good opportunity to enjoy snorkeling even more.

    The hand grip is very light weight to carry around in the bag and also the right size, so as to make it easier to hold. It provides good grip, be it out of water or inside.

    The grip is noticeable when out in the ocean due to its orange band on the end of the grip. The sponge on the grip is very good in terms that it gets dried as pretty soon.

    So happy with the product that I am going to use this from now on for all my water activities.

    This is a necessity when filming in water. Just don’t forget to attach your GoPro to it when you head out. My brother in-law lost his Hero10 after a couple of days of ownership in the ocean of the North Shore in Hawaii while kayaking. Mine was secured.

    It definitely floats!

    Fits my Go Pro 360 perfectly. We used this accessory with our Go Pro 360 while kayaking with manatees in Florida. My only disappointment was that it floats so well that my hand was getting tired from trying to hold it under water to take pictures of the manatees while submerged. It definitely does the job of keeping the Go Pro afloat! Great price for a little extra safety so as to not lose an expensive Go Pro in deep water.

    Floating hand grip for GoPro cameras

    This handle almost acts like a selfie stick because you attach it to your camera to be able to hold it up higher and if you drop it in the water, it keeps the camera floating so you don’t lose it!

  • Review by Tech0, 10 out of 10
    A must for backpacking photographers

    I had the v2 Capture Clip and absolutely hated it. It was clunky and the mount used was Peak proprietary. Recently I tried the v3 and it was a completely different experience. They slimmed down the clip considerably to the point you don't even notice it. And the mount is a standard ARCA type which means you can go from wearing your camera to putting it on a tripod in no time with no need to remove the Peak mount to install a different mount for the tripod.

    I only use it on my backpack and with a lens no longer than, say, 5", it feels great. After 5" it's a bit wobbly and awkward, not for me. I can't wear the clip on my belt at all. It just feels like it's going to pull my pants down plus I'd be afraid it would bang up my camera easier.

    The price is a bit nuts but that's par for the course with Peak. The thing is they make unique products that solve problems better or differently than every other camera accessory maker. So I guess they can demand the price because while $70 is a lot of money for a clip it's less than missing a shot because you couldn't grab your camera in time.

    Best solution for on-the-go shooting

    Overall the build quality of the Capture Clip is fantastic. If you're looking for a solution to the dreaded camera-flipping-about problem that happens with a neck strap, this is for you.

    You can tell that Peak Design puts a lot of time and effort into thinking about their packaging, and it really helps this feel like a premium product. But you know what's more important than that? It works wonders. Depending on your hand size and the size of your camera, you can quickly get used to releasing the camera with one hand with ease.

    When the camera is attached to the plate, there is very little bounce to it. I suspect that with larger cameras and lenses that might start to change, but when compared to the traditional keep-it-in-a-bag or neck strap, it's miles ahead.

    I've got mine installed on an Osprey Talon 22 backpack with a Sony A6100, and the only real complaint I have is that the strap on the Osprey Talon 22 is a bit on the wide side, and I had to squish it a bit to install the capture plate, as seen in the attached picture. It ended up working, but it still felt.. wrong.

    Just buy it, you'll be glad you did

    I have a heavy setup (Canon 70d with Battery Grip) and was nervous at first using this to hold it on to their 6L Sling Bag. But after using it a few times during a few hikes, the nervousness went away and just know that it's secure. I love this thing! Obviously it's great for securing you setup onto a bag or belt while moving around, playing with the kids, setting things up or whatever you need to do while not having a camera in your hand; but it's really nice that you can lock it in 4 different ways which makes changing lenses so much easier, quicker and safer! Also, it comes with a lifetime warranty like all of their products!

    A must-have for the hiker / photographer

    I mounted this baby to my 5.11 backpack and man what a huge help this will be on those long hikes. When using a sling strap, no matter what I did, the camera would bang against not only my hip but my cell phone (which I also carry on my hip), which could potentially damage either device.

    It was simple to install, set up. I took a little test hike just to see how secure it was. Not only was it nice and secure, but it also was really easy to dismount the camera with the quick release tab when you have to take that quick shot that you weren't prepared for.

    Thumbs up!!

    Quality build that is durable and worth the price

    The body of the clamp is a solid piece and a quality build. It easily attaches to even thicker back pack straps with a little squeezing and stays in position without ever slipping. I’ve used it for long hikes where it was holding the camera body and a large L series 24-70mm and even the 70-200mm with relative ease.

    The plate is Arca Swiss compatible which was a real plus since I can just leave the plate attached to the camera body and quickly switch between the clip on my back pack and the tripod.

    A must have for your streaming setup

    I needed a camera arm to help get me the right overhead angle for a project that I am working on. The arm give me plenty of height for the right overhead view and addition to the Elgato Left arm.

    The new magnetic clamp is convenient!

    ## What's the difference between the OM 4 and Osmo 3?

    - Magnetic quick release clamp: Attaching and detaching your phone from the gimbal is a lot more easier on the OM 4 thanks to the magnetic clamp. You simply place the clamp on your phone and if you're going out for a day of shooting, you can just leave it on your phone (it's a little bulky, so you probably don't want to leave it on your phone day-to-day). The clamp works with most phone sizes and can be put on over top of your phone case.

    - Magnetic ring holder: A more permanent attachment is a magnetic "sticker" you would place on the back of your phone. DJI recommends attaching the sticker to the back of your phone and not on a case.

    - Stronger motor: The OM 4 can support heavier phones as it has a stronger motor compared to the Osmo 3.

    ## Performance

    The DJI OM 4 does a great job of smoothing out movement and "jitters" in your video recordings. I took the OM 4 on a road trip and was surprised by the smooth video I was able to capture out the passenger-side window of the car, even on a bumpy road.

    The physical buttons definitely make taking photos and recording videos convenient, but you need to make sure the clamp is not pressing again one of your phone's physical volume buttons. Otherwise, the physical buttons on the OM 4 may not work.

    The OM 4 also does an excellent job of removing the up and down motion of walking while recording, but it does not completely eliminate it. The built-in optical stabilization of the iPhone X does not seem to interfere with the OM 4.

    The ActiveTrack feature also does a decent job of following people and dogs, but seems to be less effective when targeting inanimate objects.

    ## Features

    - Portable: The OM 4 folds up nicely for travel, taking up minimal space in your bag. The OM 4 does not come with a hard case, but a soft pouch is included instead.

    - ActiveTrack 3.0: This OM 4 can follow a person or pet automatically, using either the back or front-facing camera. You can use it to record yourself demonstrating something or to follow your dog playing ball in the yard.

    - Gesture Control: With this feature, you can make a palm or "V" gesture with your hand to activate the ActiveTrack 3.0 feature.

    - Dynamic Zoom: This is a cool effect that you've probably seen on TV. The subject stays stationary while the background seems to zoom in or zoom out. You can accomplish this effect by following the steps in the DJI Mimo app.

    - Story Mode: This includes some pre-canned Instagram story-worthy templates for your videos.

    - Tripod mount: A small tripod mount is included and can be screwed to the bottom of the OM 4 to capture selfies or group shots with yourself included.

    ## Battery Life

    On my road trip, I used the gimbal for over an hour and the LED lights still indicated that I had near-full battery. DJI states the OM 4 can get up to 15 hours of battery life and takes about 2.5 hours to recharge with a 5V 2A wall charger (not included).

    However, the DJI Mimo app seems to be processor-intensive as I find my phone's battery draining quickly (and heating up) while using it.

    ## Summary

    The versatility of the magnetic phone clamp is the main standout feature of the OM 4, but if you're happy with the clamp on the Osmo 3, then there probably isn't a pressing reason to upgrade. However, newcomers to DJI's gimbals will appreciate the ease of attachment on the OM 4.

    A nice smartphone stabilizer with lots of features

    A few years ago I was introduced to my first camera gimbal. At the time, I didn’t have a strong use for them, but as I grew into my photography, I found more and more uses for a stabilizer. Since I’ve tried to make stabilizers part of my standard camera equipment - or at least have one available - I’ve done a lot of research and tests with different types of gimbals and have finally landed on the DJI OM4.

    The box is a nicely branded DJI package. If I saw this on a retail shelf, I would immediately recognize it as a DJI product. The front of the box clearly identifies the OM4 and there is a nice photo of the product in use. The bottom of the box outlines the serial number, UPC, EAN, and DJI Care. The back of the box reads “Create Magnetic Moments” - a nod to the newest feature of the magnetic quick mount. Also shown on the back of the box are the logos for Google Play and the Apple App Store indicating that the DJI Mimo app is available for both operating systems.

    When you open the box, you will notice a simple illustrated guide for gimbal operation. The first step is to attach the magnetic quick mount to your phone and then connect that to the magnet on the OM4. Finally, you are instructed to unlock the gimbal arm and power it on. There are several items included in the box with the OM4 — a quick start guide, a magnetic ring user guide, DJI disclaimer and safety guidelines, a USB-C charging cable, the magnetic ring that users can attach to the back of their phone instead of attaching the magnetic quick mount, a riser pad for smaller phones, a packet of various adhesive options, an alignment guide for the magnetic ring, a storage pouch for the gimbal, and the stabilizer itself.

    The OM4 is resting just inside the box and you can immediately use it. I pulled it out of the box and started playing around with it just to see how well its basic operation/stabilization worked without the advanced controls in the app. I was very impressed with how smooth its movements are. Even without the app, you can switch from portrait to landscape mode using the MODE button on the OM4 controls. The gimbal will still balance the phone and work as a basic stabilizer and be able to control the direction of the stabilizer arm with the handle’s joystick. You will not have access to control your phone though, or be able to use modes like ActiveTrack or DynamicZoom without the app.

    The app seems to work extraordinarily well alongside the gimbal. I didn’t have any connection problems between the device and the app at all and after the initial set-up, my phone was immediately recognized when the OM4 was turned on. To test out the remote features, I followed my dog around for a little while. The DynamicZoom feature worked really well although users should be aware that it’s not a smooth zoom; it’s incremental because it’s a digital zoom function.

    The ActiveTrack didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped either. The app allows users to draw a box around an object they want to follow and the gimbal tracks it and keeps the camera on the phone balanced as that object moves. This works well as long as the object you’re following doesn’t leave that box. As I said, I was following my dog around and when he walked out of the room, the ActiveTrack box turned red and I had to remap the dog when I turned the corner and he was in view again. I sort of expected that to happen when he walked completely out of range, but it also happened when he was still in frame. I found that ActiveTrack works best when you can actively follow your subject so that it doesn’t leave the ActiveTrack frame.

    One of the first things I noticed about the OM4 was its weight. I’ve worked with several styles of stabilizers that are made out of very heavy materials. The OM4 feels solid, but also does not feel weighed down. I looked at another brand’s stabilizer for smart phones and it weighed more than 3 times as the OM4. To me, I want something that’s lighter - making it more portable - for use with smartphones. And since this is the OM4’s primary application, I love that DJI eliminated excess weight from the device.

    One of the newest features of the OM4 is the magnetic clip. This makes attaching and removing a smartphone from the OM4 super easy. The only downside to it is that the quick mount is designed for use with phones that are not in a case. If you have a small enough case, you might be able to get the phone to stay put. I had some issues with this because I have a leather case on one of my phones and it kept popping off the mount. DJI also includes a magnetic ring that is similar to a pop-socket. You can attach this to the bare back of a phone and use it to mount to the OM4 instead of using the quick mount. The downside to this option is that you won’t be able to use a wireless charger with the magnet mounted to the back of your phone. So, while both of these mounts make it easy to connect with the OM4, neither is 100% practical with standard use of a smartphone.

    I’ve seen other reviews state the OM4 doesn’t live up to their expectations. I have to say that I’ve been quite impressed with it. While there is still room for improvement, I’m happy with its operation, design, accessories, and overall value it adds to my video projects. Even though this is my first DJI gimbal, I’ve used other brands before and feel that the OM4 is a nice upgrade from previous models I’ve used.

    Make Photography Fun Again

    There are a ton of 3rd party accessories aimed at taking photography on smartphones beyond the built in software and cameras. The DJI OM 4 gimbal is more than just a fancy selfie stick, thanks in part to the accompanying DJI MIMO app and the capabilities of the gimbal itself. I used this for many different types of photography and videography. I'll never claim to be a professional, but the DJI OM 4 sure made shooting and watching them a lot of fun.

    From a design aesthetic, the gimbal itself is made a heavy duty plastic and metal. The OM 4 comes with:

    - Gimbal

    - Tripod

    - Ring clip

    - Grip clip

    - Travel bag

    - USB-C to USB-A charging cable

    I didn't use the Ring clip option because it's made to be adhered to the back of the device itself - and this would effectively break wireless charging on my iPhone XS. So I opted for the Grip clip and it worked fairly well. DJI recommends taking your phone out of a case, and honestly, if you have a bulky case on it, you're going to have to. I have a slim case on mine, so I was able to use the Grip clip without taking my case off.

    The gimbal itself supports a wide array of controls. You have a trigger button that toggles through various modes, like front-or-back camera, and sport mode. On the side, there's also a slide toggle for zoom control. Note of caution, if you're an iPhone user, the OM 4 WILL NOT control zoom. This was one of the major reasons I didn't give it a 5-star. That seems like such a basic feature to miss that I was surprised DJI missed it while throwing a truckload of other features into the mix.

    You also have the "M" button that serves as power, sleep, and toggle from portrait to landscape. Finally, there's the record button which you press to record videos or take pictures. If you're in picture mode and you hold down the record button, you'll activate burst mode.

    The battery life is pretty good, I've had it last for several days with on-and-off usage before I recharged it.

    You can use the built in iOS camera with the gimbal if you want, you don't have to use the DJI MIMO app. However, if you don't use the MIMO app, you lose the ability to calibrate the phone and gimbal, do image effect adjustments for lighting or skin tone, or play with one of the OM 4's cool new features, Clone Me. Clone Me is a special portrait-shot panorama setting that will stitch together 3 photos shot in the same setting. I uploaded an example of how I made my wife think I was extra productive using Clone Me.

    If you're looking for something more than a traditional selfie stick, that also provides the versatility to create your own picture or video content on the go, then you should check this thing out. It's become a staple for family events to make fun and silly pictures and videos.

    Like having your own personal photographer

    Having had some experience with camera gimbals, I was anticipating what DJI was going to bring to the table with this update since phones have gotten larger in size in the past year. Unfortunately, the previous model did not work well with the larger updated phones available so we haven’t been able to use the gimbal properly and it was a bit of a hassle. Fortunately, DJI upped their game not only with the hardware but with what the new DJI OM 4 software was capable of. I have used some off-brand gimbals as well and, as far as I’m concerned, DJI always has set the bar for everyday gimbal users and has always been well worth the extra coin to throw down. The first thing I noticed is that it fit my new large phone perfect, which has the largest screen of any new phone on the market (besides the phablets), using the included magnetic phone clamp and magnetic ring holder (see pictures) as an included option if you don’t want to use the clamp. As a side note, I love the fact that they included both of these options. My only issue is that I have a folding phone case which obviously would interfere with the magnetic mount so I would need to pull my phone out of the case in order to use it which can be somewhat of a hassle. Regular, non-folding, phone cases should work just fine using the magnetic clamp or ring. The magnets are very strong so you shouldn’t have any issue with the phone coming off the gimble unless the clamp or sticky side of the ring fail. I would like to also note that the gimbal does fold for storage and they even included a pouch to keep it in. Once it’s stored in the pouch, it’s not much larger than my phone with exception of the bulky part however it probably would be pretty uncomfortable in a standard pant pocket so you would need to figure out how to transport it around if you were on a trip, such as in a purse or backpack.

    After I charged the DJI OM 4 gimbal and downloaded the smart phone app, I was excited and ready to give this thing a whirl. Now to the nitty gritty… what this gimbal and the DJI software is actually capable of. Once your phone is mounted to the gimbal, it has no problem handling the weight of any phone on the market and balances it perfectly. The gimbal’s movements are super smooth and fluid as you would expect with the newer technology. I also love the fact they included the removable mount so you can place it on a semi-level surface and take pictures or video. One of the great things about the new software is the subject tracking so you could set the camera down, lock in on a target subject using their smart phone app software and just let the gimble and phone camera go to work to create a video without even touching anything; it’s like having your own personal videographer. I posted some pictures of the panoramic pictures I took of our living room that the gimbal took up to nine separate photos and pieced them together to make one. The gimbal has all the features you would need including the action button, remote control to manually move the camera, a trigger button you can customize, a zoom toggle as well as a mode button so you’re not constantly having to touch your phone screen. There are so many features built into the software including story mode, automatic panoramic features to take pictures or video of an entire area using the stand, etc. that you could spend hours on if you are an obsessive camera junkie. It’s also great for casting or video conferencing since it automatically follows any subject around while it records/films.

    Being an amateur, I was able to create pretty incredible 8k video short stories which may not be worthy of stardom however seeing some of the videos online that more professional photographers have made using the same set up was pretty impressive to say the least. Overall, I’m not sure there’s anything on the market that could hold a candle to the new DJI OM 4 and think it’s well worth the extra money if you’re in the market for a portable smart phone camera gimbal that will blow your mind and impress your friends at the same time.

    Awesome little gadget for vlogging & travel videos

    I got the chance to play With the new DJI OM4, I had the previous iteration of OM2. The OM4 has greatly improved, smaller, easier to use and DJI has gotten smart with their products but also including their DJI MIMO app to help anyone make good looking videos.

    Out of the box

    What's included:

    - DJI OM4

    - Magnetic Ring Holder

    - Magnetic Phone Clamp

    - Grip Tripod

    - Power Cable

    - Storage Pouch

    - Wrist Strap

    Something I thought was really useful was the ability to put our phone on and off the DJI OM4 with the magnetic clamp or ring holder. This made it so easy to use, while I took my OM4 on a camping trip I was able to use the magentic clamp to secure my phone to a magnetic phone holder for GPS function. This is also the difference between the OM4 and OM3, The previous version of the OM3 did not have the magnetic clamp or ring holder. Another neat thing was the Tripod, it came in handy so many times. Especially with the Active track which, I'll get into more of later.

    DJI's Mimo app has really made it easy for anyone and I mean anyone to make good looking video montages. Too bad I can't upload any videos of my trip but I'm pretty happy with the results. DJI has many templates that you can use and they continue to add more as well as being able to share what you've created with other DJI users. This also help with getting ideas from the other creative users. This is easily one of the best features I enjoyed with the OM4.

    Another awesome feature I found on the OM4 is the ActiveTrack. ActiveTrack allows you to be a one man/women video crew. Using your smartphone, you can set it to follow a subject in an almost 360 degree range. DJI has really improved their ActiveTrack software from the previous apps they've released. It was easy to set the subject (person) I wanted to track and with the front trigger button you can turn on and off ActiveTrack for quick subject changes.

    In conclusion, I'd highly recommend the DJI OM4 for Vloggers or anyone that enjoys documenting video of their trips and other adventures!

    Solid Gimbal Stabilizer

    The cameras on modern phones are getting better all the time. With the ability to shoot 4K video and grab amazing stills, I rarely grab other cameras when I travel or record video. The cell phone is just too convenient. But, even with these great cell phone cameras, I still have blurred photos and everyone hates jerky cell phone video. The DJI OM 4 is amazing. Over the last few weeks, I have put the gimbal through multiple tests and I am amazed by how my videos and pictures have come out.

    For instance, I took the DJI OM 4 down a mountain road the other day. Without the stabilizer, the video is a jarring mess. With the stabilizer, the focus and the center of the shot stayed the same. The vehicle was clearly moving and jostling around, but the OM 4 didn't flinch.

    Setting up the DJI OM 4 is relatively simple. You can either adhere a mount to the back of the phone, or use the magnetic phone clamp that expands and snaps onto your phone. I preferred the latter. I can't imagine a lot of people willingly adhering the mount to the back of the phone for a couple of reasons: 1) the mount makes it impossible to put your phone in a case 2) the adhered mount would likely interfere with wireless charging. I guess you could always find a hard case and adhere the mount to the case itself. That way you would only have to swap cases for a perfectly balanced mount.

    The problem with using the magnetic phone clamp is that it can be difficult getting the phone properly centered. And even when I thought I had it centered, I still had to go into the DJI Mimo app and run a calibration to make sure the phone was properly leveled.

    Speaking of the Mimo App, it was all relatively easy to use and set up. The various camera and video modes are easy to select and use. The stitching for panoramic photos is great. The time lapse and Dyna-Zoom were very effective.

    There is a USB-A and a USB-C port built in to the handle. You can charge the gimble via USB-C. The USB-A port provides a way to charge your phone while you are filming and taking pictures.

    If I have any nitpick, tracking could be a bit slow if you are dealing with a moving subject. For the most part, the tracking software did a good job tracking subjects like people and dogs. I had one individual pretend to be bigfoot as he crossed the road and the gimbal never lost him. But, small objects like a drone or dogs that want to get close and move fast, those objects were a little bit harder to keep in frame and the OM 4 struggled a bit to keep up with those subjects assuming the app would recognize those subjects at all.

    The app recognizes gestures. With certain hand signs, you can trigger a countdown for photos or record video. I did notice that the gesture control worked better indoors. Outside, the software seemed to have problems picking the gestures up.

    But those are nitpicks. Most of those nitpicks could probably be patched out later. This device is incredible. For vloggers, the OM 4 on a tripod does a great job following subject. The photos and videos will come out looking great without motion blur.

    This is a great device. DJI out did themselves and I can't recommend it enough.

    Great for smaller cameras.

    I have a mirrorless camera and it works well. Specifically an EOS RP. I will say balancing kind of sucks. My camera in particular is right front heavy. There is not much clearance after adjustment so the hot shoe is a little useless. The case it comes in feels cheap but it also is useful for management when you need to pack.

    Otherwise, it is pretty sturdy and I am impressed with some of the shots I got. If you do have a larger camera I would go with the upgraded model. Also, get a quick-mount because the included riser is a pain to switch out if you are on the go.

    Perfect pocket-sized tripod!

    JOBY is known for their GorillaPod flexible arm style tripod. When I saw this compact tripod by them I had to pick it up. Pint sized and perfect to pack away, the rubber handles and feet and a stabilized stance. Cell phone hold features one of the best mounts I've ever used with a locking mechanism. Def worth picking up.

    Joby Tripod

    A nice tabletop tripod. Holds a smartphone securely in both positions, even with a protective case on. Only complaint is it would be nice if the legs could be locked to various heights. Other than that it is a winner.

    I LOVE THIS THING!

    I purchased the Joby HandyPod for my iPhone 11 Pro and it has been a great investment as it makes the phone so much easier to handle and use for photos and video.

    It securely clamps on my iPhone 11 Pro. I have the regular version but it appears that it will fit the 11 Pro Max as well.

    It has rubber padding on the clamps that will protect your phone if it is not in a case. The pads are grippy but not too squishy to hold firmly and protect the phone.

    The clamp lever works great. I have not had any issues with the lever and clamp working to create a firm and secure hold on the phone.

    The tripod legs provide a wide enough base that I can hold my phone in vertical mode with the Rode Wireless Go attached to the cold shoe without it tipping over. The feet have rubber on them that keep the tripod from sliding around on table surfaces. I found this was helpful for keeping the tripod and phone solid on the dash of my van as I recorded a time lapse on a drive through town.

    The clamp has a cold shoe which works great for mounting a mic that you might want to plug into your phone. This makes it ideal for vlogs. It also has a 1/4-20 thread on the side of the phone clamp, this allows for additional items to be added to create a small rig or for mounting to the tripod.

    The push button lock with the ball and socket head adjustment works better than I expected. It is genius in that it allows for rapid positioning of the head yet holds securely.

    I find myself using the HandyPod as a better way to securely hold the phone by hand, adding stability for both still images and video. I have had a lot of fun using it to hold my iPhone 11 Pro upside down, close to the ground to capture video clips of my dogs. While it is not a gimbal, it has worked well for me to capture amazing video in low angles to my subjects. I have been able to record video that looks like I used a gimbal.

    I have also found myself using the phone clamp without the tripod. This allows for a better handhold on the phone. This was not something I had thought about being able to do before the purchase and is a great way to use the phone clamp.

    I highly recommend the Joby HandyPod. It Is well constructed and I trust it to hold my new iPhone 11 Pro. I think you will enjoy the many useful features and you will find it worth the purchase.

    (In the photos you will notice the screen protector is cracked on the phone, that was from me dropping it on a job site and has nothing to do with the HandyPod. A new screen protector is on it’s way thanks to the Belkin Warranty.)

    Flexibility & Durability!

    I use this to mount my iPhone 12 Pro Max and 13 Pro Max for shooting tabletop photos, video & timelapse clips. It is very sturdy and handles the weight of these heavy phones easily. The tripod head and feet are well constructed and appear to be ergonomically designed. The phone mount, itself, can be used to hold the phone in both, portrait and landscape, orientations. The only thing that I miss having is the ability to have some sort of a telescoping pole to extend the height of the tripod head, even if 6-10 inches. Now, that addition would make it even more versatile.

    Quality but Overpriced

    This is a really nice selfie stick/tripod, but it is way overpriced. The build quality is better than most, but it doesn't justify the high price tag. We needed this last minute for business, which is the only reason I paid so much for it.

    Awesome upgrade from the 2

    Recently purchased this unit and the upgrades it features over the 2 are well worth it. The ability to charge your phone from the unit, instant switch from landscape to portrait, and usb type c connectivity makes this a win. They have also managed to shrink down the size and weight slightly and make it foldable. I would definitely recommend.

    Great stabilization, very intuitive controls

    The DJI Osmo mobile 3 is the first gimbal I've ever bought and used and so far, I'm very impressed.

    The controls are very intuitive.

    Build quality is flawless and the app comes with almost all the features I need.

    Video is super smooth, tracking works well, timelapses are very easy, ...

    The only issue:

    I use the Osmo mobile 3 with a OnePlus 5T, that is capable of 4k at 30fps and 1080p at 30/60fps in the standard camera app.

    In the DJI app, the maximum framerate i can access is 30fps, which bothers me a bit.

    I like shooting in 1080p at 60fps for smooth slowmotion.

    Perhaps DJI will update the app in the future with a wider selection of resolutions and framerates.

    Then I'll happily leave a 5 star rating.

    Perfect stabilization for your iPhone

    Amazing tool for anyone wish it smooth stable footage from the phones video camera. Especially love the motion tracking feature which allows you to lock onto and follow a subject easily. Download the DJI mobile 3 app and do make some great movies. My package came with a small tripod for time lapse and allows you to get in the picture. The price is definitely reasonable for what you get. Totally worth having. Works with most phones I'd think.

    Great Gimbal

    I purchase this after purchasing the Zhiyun - Crane 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer. I had initially intended to use my Canon EOS 6D to do some filming, but soon realized the size of my camera and the gimbal were too much to bring on vacations.

    The quality of this product is very good. It's high quality plastic, unlike the Zhiyun which is all aluminum, but it still feels well made. It is easy to balance a phone, I have the Iphone XS Max, which fits well, but I don't like using my case with it.

    The app they provide is great. It's feature rich and easy to navigate around in.

    Some of the functions of the controls on the body of the Osmo Mobile 3 are a little on the difficult side, but not so overly complex that it should slow you down in any way.

    I spent a few dollars more to get the case and tri-pod, which isn't a necessity, as you can aftermarket ones for it. Any standard tri-pod will work.

    It doesn't have replaceable batteries, but the battery should last all day under normal usage.

    Pros:

    lightweight

    collapses down for travel.

    App is excellent

    Lots of youtube videos with tips and tricks

    Cons:

    Buttons are a little confusing at first

    Non-replaceable batteries (see note above)

    Great, but has a few small caveats.

    This gimble is great for what it is. I have gotten so many smooth shots from my Pixel 3a. The reason I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars is that with the 3a in landscape mode and using the native camera app, the gimble does not allow for the phone to be completely level. The Pixel will show a leveler/degree line when in landscape mode and it is always off by 1 or 2 degrees. Now, when I use the DJI Camera app, I am able to manually adjust the level and even recalibrate it. That is all fine and good, but I have found using the DJI app causes my 3a to get really hot after about 10 minutes of use. While outside on a summer day in Oklahoma heat, I got a notification stating the phone was overheating and made both camera apps inoperable. I am learning that budget smartphones have their limitations. With all of that said, I can easily make the footage level in Da Vinci Resolve and I am sure it can be done in other editing programs. I wish you could use a thin cell phone case while using the gimble. There is really only enough room for the arms to grab the cell phone. All of this is based on what I experienced. I definitely recommend this gimble.

    OUTSTANDING SONY WIRELESS CAMERA GRIP & TRIPOD

    The Sony GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip / Tripod, with Wireless Remote Commander is the newest Sony combination shooting grip and tripod model. This is a nice accessory for my new Sony α6100 mirrorless camera. The most notable improvement over similar devices is that Sony added Bluetooth wireless functionality for the four electronic controls. The grip/tripod allows significant flexibility in adjusting both pan (up to 360 degrees) and tilt (up to 90 degrees forward or back). Among the electronic remote camera controls are zoom function (rocker switch), as well as still photo shutter control (button), video activation control (start/stop toggle button), plus C1 control (custom assignable button).

    The grip is manufactured of a heavy plastic, which is textured on all hand-held surfaces. It feels solid and is both comfortable and balanced with the α6100 mounted. Obviously, balance with a camera with a long lens mounted would likely be an issue, as would stability when used as a tabletop tripod with a front-heavy camera and lens combination. With compact and lightweight cameras like the α6100, it is ideal. The bottom of each of the three legs has a rubber pad for stability when used as a tabletop tripod. The camera mounts securely to the top of the grip/tripod with the standard/typical threaded tripod screw mount. The top plate can be panned/rotated 360 degrees, in 90 degree increments, each having a locking detent. The release button for that rotational function is conveniently placed immediately below the top mounting plate and is easily operated with the user’s thumb. The entire head unit tilts up or down a full 90 degrees. The tilt function has a knurled friction control adjustment knob on the right, as well as ten detent locking positions each for up and down adjustments. The tilt lock-release button is on the left, and likewise is easily accessible and operated. Obviously, the mounted camera should be supported and stabilized whenever adjusting tilt angle on the grip/tripod. On the rear surface of the grip, below the pan/tilt mount are the controls for wireless operation of camera functions.

    The “Photo” button provides shutter control for still shots. Depressing the button half-way activates camera auto-focus, which when achieved illuminates the small LED indicator lamp located between the buttons, directly over the Zoom rocker switch. Continuing to full button depression activates the camera shutter. The “Movie” button toggles video control on and off with each depression. Video recording is confirmed by illumination of the LED indicator. Located between the Photo and Movie buttons is the rocker switch for Zoom lens control. Beneath the Photo button is the C1 button, which replicates the user programmable C1 button on the camera body. Beneath the Movie button is the rotating Lock (and Power) switch, which locks all of the controls to prevent inadvertent operation of the camera and conserves battery power.

    Once the Sony supplied CR2032 lithium button battery is installed in the battery compartment on the wide leg (which has the control buttons), and the camera is mounted on the grip/tripod, the grip must be paired to the camera. Pairing of the α6100 is simple and straightforward. Fortunately, both the newer α6100 and α6600 models are ready to use with the GP-VPT2BT. The other, older α mirrorless models require a firmware upgrade, first.

    The grip length is about 6.75” from stem to stern, and when functioning as a tabletop tripod, the bottom of the camera is elevated 5.25”.

    Take note that when using Bluetooth remote camera control, smartphone location linking is disabled, and the camera will not switch into power saving mode.

    The obvious target users for the GP-VPT2BT shooting grip / tripod are vloggers. However, this accessory is also very useful for conventional photography and videography applications. The additional reach and camera operating control button on the extension really facilitate shooting from high angles and low angles, without being a contortionist. The combined flexibility of the shooting grip and the pivoting screen on the α6100 make such high and low angle shots much easier and better. Likewise, the usefulness and convenience of a compact, lightweight, stable and fully adjustable (pan/tilt) tabletop tripod, with integrated controls for basic camera functions serves many useful photography and videography purposes.

    I find the GP-VPT2BT to be extremely handy and useful. When my α6100 is not mounted to the shooting grip, the accessory is always kept immediately at hand in my camera bag for rapid deployment, tucked into the nice drawstring storage pouch that Sony includes in the package.

    There are numerous reasons that I have been a fan of Sony products for many years, enjoying Sony TVs from my first Triniton to the current Android 4k UHD TVs, from audio gear to photography gear. Across all product categories, Sony has never disappointed. Sony products are well designed, well made and reliable, and always meet or exceed expectations. My Sony α6100 is a fantastic camera, and the GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip / Tripod, with Wireless Remote Commander is a very welcome accessory for it!

    You might really need this

    Aimed at Sony’s light and compact mirrorless cameras, this is one slick little accessor that does exactly what it’s intended to do … plus maybe a bit more. If you’ve seen the previous version of Sony’s camera grip, this is improved in every way. It’s a bit longer and therefore easier to hold since it fits your entire hand. In addition to video, photo and zoom buttons they’ve added a C1 function button and a lock (off) switch. Access to a programable camera button allows you to decide what extra functions you want immediately available. Best of all, it now connects to the camera by Bluetooth. That leaves the accessory jack on the camera free for an external microphone. That said, be aware this means your camera MUST have Bluetooth control capabilities to connect. As with the previous model, the legs fold out turning it into a solid little desktop tripod.

    The build quality is very good. It was easy to pair with the camera, and it feels solid and smooth to the touch. The head rotates and locks every 90 degrees. It also tilts with locks every 10 degrees. There’s also a fiction adjustment to allow intermediate positions, but I’m not sure I’d trust it to stay put if you try to use a large or heavy lens. That probably shouldn’t be an issue because this grip is really aimed at walkabout and video blog use. When you pair it with the newer Sony cameras which have screens that rotate fully up and forward, you’re all set to do vlogs. To use an external mic with the screen up, you’ll need a cage or cold shoe offset bracket, but you have the camera jack available to plug it in. In walkabout use, it feels very comfortable and steady while giving more versatility in where you position the camera. Being Bluetooth connected you can use it off the camera for remote control. Since Sony’s mobile app gives you that ability from your phone plus a remote image, that may be of limited use and appeal.

    This is not intended to be a jack of all trades accessory. It has some specific uses that it does very well, and you must have a supported camera to use it. If that’s you, it is absolutely worth the extra few bucks over the previous grip to get the extra features.

    Sony GP-VPT2BT Wireless Shooting Grip

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *****Review*****

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This shooting grip makes taking selfies and vlogging incredibly easy. The built in tripod, the 360 button release swivel and tilt makes it extremely versatile. Due to its compact and lightweight design, it is easy to travel with in its provided carrying case or keep it attached to the camera with little to no obstruction when you don’t necessarily need the grip for the shot.

    I personally felt it was relatively comfortable in my small hands and balanced while attached to the A6100. I didn’t worry too much about losing grip or dropping it due to the textured grip. Although, I’d imagine it would be much more comfortable for someone with larger hands.

    The pairing process was a no brainer as long as you know your way around the Menu. Once paired, it seems to always pair when turned on and connection seems stable. It has basic controls; photo, record, zoom, lock, C1. It was very nice that there were no delays in response when each was pressed.

    To get down to the “cons”, this grip is battery operated; specifically (1) CR2032 button cell battery. Following this, there is no indication of battery life or even an estimated usage stated on Sony’s website. It would be advised to carry extra batteries at all times. Whilst this shortcoming is not a deal breaker, I personally feel for the price point, it would have been nice if it were rechargeable.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *****Quick Features & Specs*****

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dust and moisture resistant: In addition to an overall grip design that keeps dust and moisture out, the absence of cables means that the camera's connector covers can stay closed, for maximum system dust and moisture resistance

    Bluetooth wireless remote commander: With a compatible camera attached, remote controls for still and movie shooting can be operated while holding the grip normally, without having to touch the camera. Any function assigned to the camera's C1 button can also be recalled via the remote grip C1 button

    No cables required: Bluetooth wireless communication means that no connecting cables are required to transmit control signals from the grip to the camera. Simply aim and shoot with no cables to get in the way

    Flexible tilt function: A quick tilt function makes it easy to set the ideal camera angle for a wide range of subjects and viewpoints. Whether shooting selfies or a subject, the tilt function lets you get the shot without having to assume uncomfortable posture

    Quick, easy direction changes: Quickly and easily position the camera for subject or selfie stills or movies. Improve your chances of getting the shot, even when shooting stills or movies without assistance. Combined with the grip's easy angle adjustment capability, 90° lock positions also make it possible to shoot in vertical orientation with optimum stability.

    Contoured for comfort: The grip has been carefully designed to provide optimum stability and comfort, whether attached to a compact or mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. Remote control buttons are easily accessible while holding the grip, for smooth, intuitive operation

    It's a tripod too: Spread the grip's cleverly integrated legs and it becomes a handy, stable tripod, leaving both hands free for vlogging and other applications

    Remote? check. Tripod? check. Awesome? check.

    This remote/tripod could not have come at a better time for me. I recently broke my go to “small tripod” and realized just how much I miss having a small and short option I can take anywhere before I got this, and bonus, this one is a remote to! I know it’s supposed to be a remote first, but really this thing is equally useful as both remote and tripod, just the fact that sony was smart enough to add 2 fold out legs and make it multi purpose is the first sign that this remote is a keeper. The instructions come in every language you could ever imagine but somewhere in there was a short english section that explains the easy process of pairing with your Sony camera (must have bluetooth). Personally, I connected it to my A7iii and it connected on the first try without issues and really the instructions were only needed so I knew which button combo to push to initiate pairing. In theory, I shouldn’t need that again, and if I do, it’s 2020 and the internet covers these things pretty well.

    So how well does it work? I was actually really happy with the way the remote works, but there is a very tiny learning curve, which is how touchy the buttons are. I wasn’t expecting the photo and zoom buttons to be so sensitive and at times it led to accidental pushes but after awhile I started to get used to it. The plus side of that touchy-ness is that you can still half-press the photo button to focus just like on the camera body and the zoom actually goes at 2 speeds based on how hard you press the button. And if you find yourself pressing the buttons on accident too much, there is a simple lock switch that will turn off the buttons until you need them; again, Sony thought this one through.

    But let’s talk about that zoom function for a second because that was something I was curious about how it worked. Essentially I found out that you have to be in JPEG mode and also somewhere in the menus is a setting to turn on digital zoom. With those settings all correct, the zoom button does work (but digital zoom only obviously) but I’m assuming for vlog work or when you’re uploading to web, aka when high quality won’t matter, this would be very handy to have on the handle. For me personally, I shoot raw and prefer to use optical zoom if it’s not a prime lens and so this feature probably won’t be as useful for me, but I’d rather have the option and not use it then wish I could.

    I don’t do a ton of VLOG work or any “walk and talk” so I can’t tell you from experience if this is useful for that but if you’re walking around shooting with a gorilla stand or equivalent then this remote can do the same thing PLUS connect to your camera and control it and still be a tripod when needed, so for me, it made more sense to get this vs another tripod that will fall apart or get loose joints and be useless to me or unsafe to trust holding up my camera. This remote can also do a quick 90 or 180 degree spin with the press of a release button that I assume would be very handy for any vlogger who needs to switch back and forth.

    Other than that, there’s not much to say about the remote, it is, after all, a simple tool. But nothing wrong with that, keeping it simple can be a good thing. This remote does exactly what I want it to do and a little extra. The attention to detail by Sony is noticeable and appreciated and keeping the price down is always great to see.

    I don’t think you can go wrong with this remote/tripod from Sony if you own any Sony alpha camera with bluetooth. It’s a great handle, it’s a great remote, and it’s a great tripod. Win. Win. Win.

    Handy add on

    Contents for my shooting grip included the following items: Wireless remote shooting grip, small pouch, CR2032 battery, and instructions.

    This Shooting Grip With Wireless Remote Commander from Sony has a lot of different uses. It can be a small tripod, that comes handy for videos or for group photos. I think bloggers will love it for the videos because it can be placed on a table and the shooting grip can get adjusted to just about any angle.

    It can be a shooting grip. With the 2 legs folded it becomes a shooting grip. With 1 hand you can take videos and pictures. The main buttons are placed for the reach of your thumb. You can also zoom in and out using the shooting grip. The grip is not long but it also makes taking selfies a lot easier with this camera and your risk of dropping your camera is less.

    This is Bluetooth wireless so you don’t have to worry about extra wires. The paring is easy. All you do is turn Bluetooth pairing on from the camera menu and push the photo and the T button simultaneously on the shooting grip for about 7 seconds. A confirmation message will later appear and select ok after.

    After using the shooting grip (GP-VPT2BT) I find it easy to use with my Sony a6100 camera. It did not add much weight to the camera so I can say it made using the camera more comfortable for most shooting angles. I plan on always leaving it attached for possible use and save the step of attaching it back on.

    This is definitely something to later add to your camera investment. It matches the a6100 perfectly and helps me be one step closer to being a professional.

    must have for vlogging!

    Sony GP-VPT2BT Wireless Shooting Grip

    This wireless shooting grip is a must have for vlogging while stationary or on the move.

    I use it with my Sony A6100, and I am very happy with this accessory.

    Design:

    The design is very ergonomic, and its grip is well made, and sturdy. It can be carried easily whether you have big or small hands.

    angle adjustment is easy to quickly change the camera direction, it also have a built in mini tripod with tilt function.

    The controller is also designed to repel dust and moisture.

    Connection:

    Connecting the grip to the camera is very simple: it uses Bluetooth connection to be wire free.

    First time setup requires you to navigate through the camera menu To enable Bluetooth, and the Bluetooth remote function, and to pair the camera with the controller. Then simply on the controller, press photo button and the T side of zoom button to pair the camera and controller and you are done.

    functions:

    The controller have a dedicated button for photos, a button for movies, a zoom in and out button, a lock button, and a C1 button, and a light indicator.

    Using the controller is very easy, and it adds to the experience especially because of the absence of wires, how fast and easy it connects to the camera, and the dedicated buttons so you can handle the camera with one hand and still be able to use it effectively.

    The price is also a huge factor as its prices well to be an important accessory to a wide variety of Sony cameras.

    What comes in the box:

    - The controller

    - a velvet pouch

    - Product manual

    - Batter (CR2032) which is not chargeable and you won't know if it dies until it dies.

    Handy Grip/Mini-Tripod Remote for Sony Cameras

    The Sony shooting grip with remote is a handy accessory for anyone with a compatible Sony camera. It's compact enough to fit into any reasonable pants pocket, which also makes it easy to toss into your kit bag. The housing is a rugged matte black plastic that's very well made, while the buttons offer excellent tactile feedback. When holding the grip, you'll have convenient thumb access to buttons for taking photos, recording video, zoom, and the programmable C1 button. All the buttons are easy to reach and thankfully, very, very responsive so you won't have to worry about missing that shot.

    I'll admit, when I first saw the Sony grip remote, I was hoping it included a gimbal, which would be a tremendous aid for anyone shooting video and make up for the lack of stabilization for a6100 and a6000 users shooting on a lens without built in OSS. Unfortunately, there's no stabilization feature here. Think of the Sony grip remote as a responsive bluetooth camera remote in a grip/mini-tripod body. Speaking of which, having legs that extend out to turn the grip into a table top tripod is very handy! Probably my favorite feature actually, as I do a lot of macro product photography so having a sturdy table top tripod that also functions as a remote is super convenient. And while it doesn't have gimbal features, the camera mount on the grip has buttons that easily let you manually rotate it at all angles.

    If you have a compatible Sony camera and are in the market for a remote or table top tripod, I highly recommend this grip! It's responsive, sturdy, compact, and should be excellent for macro or selfie shooters.

    Light, versatile, instant audio/lighting upgrade

    The Rode VideoMicro Universal Vlogger kit is an easy-to-assemble, compact set of accessories that lets you quickly improve the audio quality and lighting captured by your mobile devices without adding a lot of weight to your setup, only about 1 lb. I opted to go with the universal kit, rather than a hardware specific kit like the USB-C or iOS device kits since it offered the widest range of device compatibility, as I film both with my phone and a digital camera. The video/audio quality recorded on my phone is already pretty good, but even so, using the Rode VideoMicro mic made a positive difference in the quality of the audio capture since it has a directional polar pickup pattern.

    I like that the kit included a number of accessories, including a Rycote Lyre shockmount, WS9 deadcat wind screen muff, SC7 Audio cable, smartphone grip, tripod mount, dual-accessory cold shoe mount, microLED on-camera light, and diffuser for the light with 8 colored filters: white, red, red-orange, orange, yellow, green, green-blue, and blue.

    In this is a universal kit, the back of the mic features a 1/8” AUX output jack that you attach to the audio cable (TRS to TRRS type) to connect the mic to a mobile device’s headphone jack. You can also connect the mic to any recording device with a 1/8” stereo mic input jack, like a digital camera, but you’ll need a different cable (TRS to TRS) which is not included. What’s nice about this configuration is that the mic doesn’t have to plug directly into your phone’s charging port and is, instead, mounted on the shockmount and secured to a cold shoe which gives you more flexibility for placement and controlling the direction of the mic. One thing I noticed, though, about the Lyre shockmount is that the mic tends to tilt slightly off the horizontal plane; sliding its position in the shockmount can help you balance it so that it remains level.

    The included phone grip is made from a durable aluminum, and the width of the spring-loaded arms is adjustable up to 3.5” using the thumbscrew on top. I found that this is just large enough to fit my phone in without a case on, which wouldn’t work anyway, since my case prevented the AUX cable’s connector from being plugged in all the way. While it takes a while to fully loosen the grip for larger phones, the grip is firm once tightened down, and you don’t have to worry about your phone slipping out. The grip can then be attached in landscape or portrait orientation, using one of the three ¼”-20 thread mounting points, to any standard tripod.

    The included tabletop tripod measures about 8 inches long and is constructed mostly of a dense plastic, but manages to be fairly lightweight at 6.5 ounces. The ball head on it is detachable by simply unscrewing it from the tripod legs. This would also allow you to add an extension column if you needed more height. The tripod itself has two different height settings when open. The lower setting sits about 4.5” high, and there are rubber feet at the ends of the legs to aid stability on a flat surface. The higher setting has a sharper leg angle, giving you a height of about 6” from the surface the tripod is sitting on. Note that it’s slightly less stable at this height, so be aware of this tip-over hazard if you’re recording outside on a windy day. If you need to record in portrait mode, you can pivot the ball head into a vertical position, but this can make it side heavy and fall over, so make sure you’ve got the tripod on the lower height setting or are using the tripod handheld for stability. For better balance in portrait mode, attach the phone grip to the gimbal using one of the side mounting points. Keep in mind, in this orientation, the LED would be off the side and may not result in the best lighting.

    When using the tripod handheld at arm’s length, the Rode mic zeroed in on my voice and rejected ambient sounds coming from the sides and back of the mic, which in a large empty room, cut out a ton of background noise, echo, and even compression distortion. Even from a greater distance of 6 feet outdoors, the mic performed well at picking up my voice, and the dual layered fur wind screen helped cut down on wind noise to keep it at a minimum. I did use the mic with my digital camera, as well, using a TRS-TRS AUX cable. While the sound was improved and was much more focused on the subject versus the omnidirectional on-board mic on the camera, there was still some audible background hiss, since the mic signal is boosted by the camera’s internal pre-amp, but that doesn’t always produce the cleanest audio signal.

    The 1-3/8” microLED cube is also a useful addition to this kit. The LED charges via USB-C and has a 1 to 4 hours run-time depending on which of the four brightness levels is used. The colored filters slip into the front of the diffuser which clips over the LED. While the tabs on the filter sheets are short, I found that they stayed put once properly installed in the diffuser, and they can help color correct or add an interesting tint to your scene, based on your shooting conditions. The LED is really bright though and can be blinding at close proximity to a subject, so use of a filter is recommended; a white neutral diffuser filter is included.

    Overall, I think the mic does a great job focusing on sounds that it is pointed towards while reducing the amount of noise entering the mic from other directions and especially wind noise when using the wind screen muff. However, I found that the dual accessory bracket wasn’t quite wide enough to accommodate both the muff and the LED, since part of the light cast by the LED was blocked by the muff, casting a shadow on that side of the video. I appreciate that the kit works with any device that has an audio jack like smartphones and cameras and could even be used with an iOS device if connected to a Lightning to audio jack adapter; so keep that in mind if you’re trying to decide whether or not to get the universal kit versus the iOS-only version. It’s compact, lightweight, and performed well with various mobile devices.

    Versatile Kit with Great Accessories

    The Rode Universal Vlogger Kit is compact and great to have on-the-go. Every piece and accessory is made of quality materials. Overall, Rode lives up to its household name.

    The main thing Rode is bringing to this kit is the VideoMicro microphone, which is definitely a step up from my Samsung S9’s internal mic. The windshield attachment works well outdoors but most of my use case is indoors. The great thing about having the VideoMicro is that the 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable can fit into my Sony camera too! And if I ever upgrade my phone, I believe I can just use a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter given that newer phones don’t have an audio jack (although Rode does offer a USB-C version of this Vlogger Kit if you prefer that connection.)

    The tripod is versatile in that it has a couple of height options as well as a removable ball head. The ball head knob is strong and doesn’t budge once it’s tightened. Everything other than the tripod and Rycote Lyre shock mount is aluminum-built which makes for a quality feel.

    The phone clamp is not spring loaded, it uses a screw to secure the phone which may take a few more seconds to load but in my opinion, the stability and security of the clamp outweighs the time difference of using a spring loaded clamp. The clamp also has multiple mounting points on the bottom and sides.

    The LED light can actually get quite bright. If the light is facing me at arms length, I definitely have to use it on the lowest setting with the included diffuser. I can see me using the light and colored gel filters for a back light on a different set, but I didn’t have any uses for the colored gels while vlogging and testing this setup.

    While all the pieces are meant to work together, I love that I could potentially use them separately or with other setups/rigs. This is a very versatile kit, especially for a beginner. I have no complaints and can definitely recommend this kit for anyone who is looking for a compact, sturdy handheld or table-top setup for phones or DSLR/mirrorless cameras with upgraded audio.

    Nice Kit of Parts

    This is a pretty nice kit of parts if you don’t already have them. The microphone and LED light are definitely the stars of the show, but the tripod is also very good. I opted for the universal kit to give me more flexibility over where I can use the microphone.

    The microphone is a huge improvement over the built-in mic on my Pixel 4. My voice came through much more clearly against the background. The included dead cat does a good job of blocking out wind noise, though it definitely adds further to the bulk of the entire kit. I had also planned to use it with my mirrorless camera as well, but it appears to require a different cable. I was able to connect the cable, but no audio came through.

    The MicroLED is easy to operate and gets very bright. I left it on at the highest brightness and it turned off after just over 50 minutes and that lines up with the quoted battery life of 52 minutes. It did get quite hot over that period of time, but I don’t envision many scenarios where I’d need to have it on all the time at full brightness so I don’t think it’s a big problem. There are some included color filters, as well as as white diffuser, that attach via a bracket and they work well. I think you’d at least want the white diffuser on the light most of the time especially when lighting your face to cut down on the harshness. It charges via USB-C, which is always appreciated on small accessories like this as it’s one less charging cable to keep track of.

    The phone bracket fit my Pixel 4XL without any issues and I think you could get most any phone in there within reason. I did notice that if you unscrew it too far the springs could fall out, so that’s something to watch out for. There’s a slot at the top of the bracket to attach the dual cold shoe mount. I did notice that it was a little harder to attach the microphone on its own as the larger handscrew does interfere with the screw that clamps your phone, but it can be done.

    Not too much to say about the mini tripod. I’d say it’s solid and it’s easy to hold. There’s also an adjustment dial that locks the legs to 2 separate positions.

    With everything assembled the overall size is very manageable and I’m pretty happy with this kit. It does feel like a beginner kit, but it’s a solid set of items.

    Easily transforms gadgets to a video rig

    Rode is a popular brand for external microphone. Most of content creators that I know of have been using Rode microphones for ages. The universal kit is a one stop solution to transform your smart phone into a video rig.

    It’s clear that Rode has given serious thoughts about this kit. All of the items included in the kit is useful. The grip can transform to a small tripod. The cold shoe mount can nicely be attached to your phone and even better you can use the mount to attach the microphone to your mirrorless DSLR. However, you will need to supply TRS mini jack cable on your own if you want to use the mic with your mirrorless DSLR as the kit comes with TRSS mini jack cable for smartphones. The light is very useful when lighting conditions are not good enough.

    The microphone is connected through audio input cable so not all phones will work with the kit, at least not without some kind of audio input adaptor, so be sure to check if your smartphone have the required audio input jack before getting this kit. There are several kit models from Rode including the ones specifically made for iPhone and USB-C android phones but the universal kit in my opinion is the one to have because of the versatility of using the cold shoe mount and audio input cable. Also, the cold shoe mount ensures that the position of the microphone sits on top of your smartphone/ camera instead of on the side if you are using an Apple’s lightning or USB-C microphone. This may be just a matter of preference but having both the microphone and the camera light sit on top of your device would enable to direct the attention of your subject better to the center of your rig; after all external microphone is usually positioned on top of the camera.

    Although smartphone these days are good enough to isolate some ambient noise when you do outdoor Vlogging, Rode microphone generally still holds superiority in picking up the subject’s voice thus make it clearer and more audible. The microphone can only record mono sound so it will not record stereo sound, which is expected of a shotgun style mic. The important thing here is that the mic should get the job done and generally perform better than the smartphone’s built-in mic. If you are using an expensive video rig such as DSLR then of course you should consider using a more rich-featured and superior microphone that costs much much more, even though the quality of audio provided by the kit microphone would still be better than that of your camera built-in mic.

    The kit comes with a windshield cover so your microphone would be well protected from wind noise. The included light comes with diffuser kit, which makes content creating more fun to experiment with different colors of ambient light. The included light is very bright and useful.

    This is the kit to get to transform your smartphones into a very capable Vlogging rig. Not only that, with proper audio cable or adapter, you can use this kit with your mirrorless DSLR (as a compact external mic) and action cams. No need to take guessing mix and match of Vlogging rig, this kit should serve you well to start vlogging or creating content with better audio and lighting.

    Great setup

    This is a great setup for vloggers. The mic is a huge step up from both the Canon G7X Mark III internal audio as well as the Sony ZV-1 internal audio. It does still capture quite a bit of white noise but is more easily removed in pp than internal audio. The mic is on the larger side but worth it for the deadcat’s capabilities in windy areas. The tripod is good quality, although I wish it was able to convert to be able to hold a point and shoot while keeping the ball head. It’s large enough to accommodate my iPhone 11+ as well as a pop socket which is a huge bonus! The light works fine, but doesn’t have a lot of practical application for the kind of videos I make. Still a great all-around choice!

    Great versatile and quality all-in-one kit

    This kit from RØDE is a great way to pick up a bunch of tools for video in one shot. Everything is useful, works great, and coming from RØDE, it is all quality.

    You get a long list of tools including a directional mic, mic mount, dead cat filter, phone grip, tripod, LED light, diffuser (with 8 filters), and a nice dual cold shoe mount. Honestly, you really do not need much else of anything.

    In use, everything is very compact, fits well together, and works very well. I like the quality of the mic; it picks up a lot and what it does is crisp and clear. A clear upgrade over the phone mic. The phone grip works and should fit just about every phone without issue. I really like the tripod. You can get a couple of different positions and can also use it as a hand grip. The light is also great. It has solid output, is rated for an hour of use, and it is a lot of fun to play with the diffuser and filters. The mounts work perfectly, and really, they kind of are the key that pulls everything together. Lastly, it is nice to get all the needed cables included.

    I need to add, while all of this is meant for use with the phone, there is added versatility here as you can also use quite a bit of this kit with a camera as well. Just something to note for those who also have cameras. Not a bad value add.

    In the end, I really like this kit. It is a nice set of quality tools all in one package and a great value.

    Everything you need and well worth it!

    If you’re looking for a complete package of everything you need to turn your smartphone into a GREAT vlogging/filmmaking rig, this is it. The included high-quality microphone and LED light can increase your production quality significantly.

    I am pretty blown away at what you get in this kit as well as the quality of everything included.

    // The Microphone

    Included is a Rode VideoMicro on-camera microphone. I’ve been using this particular mic for years with my larger cameras for on-camera audio and the quality you get out of this microphone is great. It comes with a shock/suspension mount which helps with eliminating vibrations and the quality is top-notch.

    // The Light

    This kit also comes with a small LED light but don’t let the size fool you. This thing is bright! It has 4 brightness levels so you can adjust the level based on your needs but probably the neatest thing about this light is that it comes with a filter kit that allows you to diffuse the light with a white filter but it also comes with a rainbow of colored filters so you can get creative with your lighting. The filters just pop into place with a convenient cover that snaps on the front of the light and you’re good to go.

    // The Smartphone Mount

    This is by far THE highest quality smartphone mount I have ever seen. The entire thing is made out of metal and I can’t imagine anyone ever breaking one of these. The clamps have a rubber coating on them which grip your phone securely while not damaging your phone and it holds your phone in place using a little screw dial which adjusts the tension. There is little possibility of your phone accidentally falling out of this mount.

    // The Tripod/Grip

    Even the last 3 items are pretty much worth the cost of this kit but they also include this very good, multi-purpose camera tripod/camera grip. First, you can use it as a tripod and it has two different positions: a low mode which has the legs spread far out for stability and then a taller position depending on your needs.

    You can adjust the angle of the camera with a screw dial and you can even point your camera straight up if you’d like.

    You’ll attach the microphone and light to the included dual-cold shoe mount, attach that to the smartphone mount, mount it on the tripod, plug in the mic, and you’re off and filming.

    The nice thing about this kit is that you can use all these components separately with other devices and not just your phone. The microphone is a high-quality microphone that many beginning and intermediate filmmakers use, the LED light can be used off camera to add some ambient lighting effects, and the tripod/grip has a standard 1/4-20 screw that can attach to any camera.

    Really can’t say enough about what you get for the money here. Well worth it!

    All in one kit. Very nice and convenient.

    Most of the things I record are recorded through my computer with a good quality microphone attached. I record game play and other things on the computer but I quickly found out if I wanted better picture quality of segments that included video of my face that recording on my phone was the way to go. But my phone has a pretty terrible microphone so I always had to do this hybrid setup of recording the audio on my computer while recording the video on my phone and splicing it together later and trying to get it as in sync as I could.

    Enter this setup! With a nice little tripod and all the attachments you might need record a great looking face cam AND get good audio with the included microphone. It's so much nicer than my makeshift setup.

    Setup took a minute to figure out what everything did and how it all connected but it become obvious pretty quickly. There's a nice set of instructions that sort of guides you through putting everything together and once you understand what everything is and how it connects it's easy enough to just slide your phone out of the mount without really disconnecting anything else so it's always ready to go.

    Video and audio quality were quite nice. The audio was a lot better than just relying on my phone's built in microphone and the video is made even better with the wireless LED light. It's very bright and has a handful of filters so you can change the color of the light if you want or just soften it with the frosted white filter. Charges via USB-C as well so easy to do whenever it needs it.

    I don't think there's much else to say about this. If you want to take your face cam filming to a higher level than just recording on your phone, this kit has everything you need to make things look and sound better with very little extra effort.

    Great Quality, no Actual Support

    Really great quality, pleasantly surprised, as this is my first Sunpak purchase. I would give it 5 stars for the quality and functionality. However, when you try and search for a website, or support there is not one... just the USA distributor. Strange that a company with so many different products sold at BestBuy would have so little support. The light says it is app controlled yet no where, I mean NO WHERE, can I find ANYTHING about this allusive app.

    Shooting like pro!

    Even with super-advanced smartphone cameras that include stabilizers, shooting pictures requires a separate stabilization device designed to do its purpose like this DJI OM 5. I have iPhone 13 Pro Max, and I have never complained about the quality of pictures, but to get better stabilization and creative videos using DJI Mimo on a smartphone, this DJI OM 5 gimbal is the tool you need. It is lightweight, foldable, and pocketable with a magnetic phone holder, which is fantastic, and it fits my iPhone 13 Pro Max and 13 mini perfectly. Unlike its predecessor model that I also own, this model has an extension rod for selfies, and it extends to provide better picture shooting. The active track is very accurate, and it follows selected objects in real-time. The combination of using the DJI gimbal and the minim app is where the creative work is revealed. The Mimo app provides a variety of modes to take pictures or shoot video clips professionally with guidance and tutorials. Great tool for people who want creative and unique pictures/ videos.

    What is included in the box:

    DJI MO 5 gimbal, tripod, magnetic phone clamp, one phone riser, USB-C cable, storage pouch with a soft touch, and wrist wrap.

    I like the new selfie stick addition!

    ## What’s new?

    If you’re coming from the OM 4, you’re probably interested in what’s new with the OM 5.

    - Extension rod: There is now a built-in selfie stick in the DJI OM 5 to help you more easily capture selfies. The controls are still within easy reach so you can move the gimbal and snap a picture or video easily. The extension rod extends to about 8.5 inches.

    - Smaller battery: Unfortunately, battery life has been reduced from 15 hours on the OM 4 to about 6 hours on the OM5.

    - ActiveTrack 4.0: The ActiveTrack feature has been upgraded from version 3.0 found on the OM 4, which provides faster responsiveness when tracking people.

    - Lighter design: The OM 5 is 25% lighter compared to the OM 4, with a slightly smaller design.

    - No magnetic sticker: The OM 4 included a “sticker” for the magnetic mount that you could permanently attach to the back of your phone, which I’m assuming many people did not use. The OM5 includes the clamp magnetic mount only.

    ## Performance

    The OM 5 does a great job of stabilizing your phone’s camera to add smooth pans and movement to your recordings. The OM 5 seems to provide about the same stabilization as the OM 4 as there are still up and down movements when walking and it won’t completely smooth out a shaky hand. So don’t buy the OM 5 expecting “stronger” stabilization over the OM 4.

    I tested ActiveTrack 4.0 on a stationary object (a small pond) while walking around it with the hopes of getting a smooth pan with the pond centered (something I do often with the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone). Unfortunately, the footage ended up jittery. I don’t believe this was a failure of the gimbal itself, but instead a failure of the ActiveTrack algorithms trying to keep track of the pond. When performing the same walk around the pond without ActiveTrack, the footage was smooth. Therefore, it appears the ActiveTrack feature works better when tracking moving objects, such as a person or a pet.

    The Dynamic Zoom feature worked much better for me on stationary objects and I was able to create some really nice videos with it.

    Each of the features show a nice introductory video on what the feature does and how to use it, although I sometimes had trouble with the videos loading when on a cellular connection.

    ## Battery Life

    As noted earlier, battery life is somewhat reduced on the OM 5 to about 6 hours. I would likely never exceed this limit on a day trip (and don’t plan on storing 6 hours of HD video on my phone), so I’m actually in favor of the shorter battery life for the lighter design. In between shots, you can double-tap the power button to enter “standby” mode to further preserve battery life. Plus, you could always bring a power bank to charge the OM 5 while out and about.

    ## Summary

    Overall, the biggest improvement found in the OM 5 in my opinion is the extension rod (selfie stick) that allows you to more easily get a group shot or simply get a higher view. The OM 5 does a great job of capturing smooth video much like the OM 4. Battery life is shorter at just over 6 hours, but I believe the lighter and smaller design make up for it.

    Impressive

    This is the latest on the Osmo line. I used briefly the 1st generation and I was impressed, but it was not as practical. This improves leaps and bounds. It's the lightest yet (by far) and it's the first with a built-in extension (I.e. selfie stick).

    Build quality is excellent. It's easy to fold and open with minimal practice. The gimbal arm feels solid. Top-notch metal hinges and comfortable handle.

    The built-in extension is so well built that the first time I used it, did not notice this is extensible until I saw the demo videos. While it doesn't extend as far as other sticks, it's exceedingly stable. Nothing flimsy here.

    The controls feels just like one would expect from a high-end camera.

    For the most part, controls are intuitive:

    • Left side: On/off button and mode (photo/video) switch.

    • Zoom control (L-W).

    • Rear: A trigger used for locking a target when tracking.

    • Front: Joystick, photo/record, orientation/camera, trigger.

    • Right: USB-C charger.

    Connects to the phone via Bluetooth. Once paired, it connects right away with no issues.

    This can only be used to take pictures and videos with the 'DJI Mimo' app.

    When I first opened the app, I was a bit concerned by the license agreement for this, but had to accept it in order to use this device. Pleasantly, it didn’t require to register it with a DJI account. This is only required if using the DJI storage service. The app saves everything to the camera roll on the iPhone like any other camera app.

    The application has several good options and the object / face tracking is excellent.

    There are plenty of tooltips and tutorials through the app. Very helpful the first time but the demo videos can get in the way at first or not load correctly.

    The application is fine and does what one would expect. Doesn't have a lot of filters or effects besides some tracking modes, and since it saves to the camera roll it’s not a big issue.

    Also did not find a setting to save photos in raw mode.

    The object tracking is great. I was impressed as well as others I showed this to.

    The gimbal is 3-axis, meaning it can rotate left and right and up and down.

    Horizontally, it moves about, say, 270 degrees and the up and down movement is severely limited.

    It has three motors. Coordination and stability is excellent.

    The bracket that holds the phone is well made with excellent grip and very strong magnets.

    What’s not so great is that it cannot rotate 360 degrees and the vertical movement is limited. This is not a big issue in most cases however but it would be great to have.

    Also the application is great for beginners but could use more pro-level features. On iPhone at least, which is what I use, doesn't support integration with other camera apps or filters.

    Otherwise, quality is excellent and I don't know anything else that compares to this in features, build quality, precision and responsiveness.

    Smooth Recoding in most situations

    As someone who records a lot on my phone this is a great tool.

    I am not a professional by any means but this certainly helps me look like one.

    I have a one year old who is walking so my videos of her doing so were a bit shaky. With the OM5, my videos of her are smooth and seamless.

    First off, the unit when the phone attached is not heavy at all which is great for extended recording.

    As for controls, the follow feature is excellent but keep in mind it is on you to keep the subject in the frame. My daughter is fast and has run out of the frame unexpectedly so I was not ready to follow and the camera lost her. I don’t believe this is fault of the unit at all as in normal circumstances the camera follows with no issues.

    The included tripod is a nice tool allowing us to record for blogging without having to worry about holding the camera. It allows for a hands free experience especially for someone like me who has been told I talk with my hands. Lol

    In regards to panning, it is super smooth and I have had no issues at all.

    I have an iPhone XS and it holds extremely well and I have no worries about the phone falling off.

    Overall, this is a great tool for anyone who enjoys creating videos. It will give you an edge over anyone who simply handholds their phone while they video as video will be much more smooth as opposed to hand held.

    Overall, this is a great product.

    The perfect selfie/gimbal stick

    I never owned one of these things before but I was curious about it, and said to myself why people buy this? After using this DJI OM5 I realized this gimbal has its purpose. Whether you're a pro or even a novice like myself, this thing is very useful when it comes to recording or taking shots. I had to play with it for a while to get the hang of and become familiar with all the buttons and functions. Something that definitely will not go unnoticed it is very lightweight. Even with the phone attached (Note 20 Plus) I was able to use this thing for over an hour without getting my arm tired. I wonder how they manage to cram a motor, selfie stick and a rechargeable battery and still be this lightweight. This OM5 is not only a gimbal but it also has a builtin selfie stick.

    There is not too much science to use this thing just attach the magnet clamp to your phone then attach to the gimbal and start being creative. If you have never used this before I’ll recommend going over the tutorials included in the DJI software, that way you learn all the buttons functions. You have to use the dedicated DJI software to use this gimbal and all it’s features. If you’re using android and the app from the Google play store doesn't work for you, try downloading the APK from the manufacturer by scanning the QR code included in the manual, that worked for me. The software has a lot of useful features that will help you create content.

    This not only can be used while you're moving and keeps your videos super stable, but also with the included tripod you can create content while being static. A great feature included into the software is the ability to track a subject. What it does is the gimbal will track you, it will rotate or even tilt itself if you lower yourself to the ground, which is pretty cool. I recorded a video while riding a bicycle and honestly that’s where this gimbal really shines. The video was so stable you would not know it was recorded with this and the selfie stick was extended. You can also use gestures to start and stop videos or take camera shots. There are so many features in this thing to list them all.

    One of the things I wish it had is auto zoom, it already has auto tracking but doesn’t zoom automatically. This can swivel, turn and tilt pretty much into any position but it has its limitations. When it tilts to a certain extent and when it turns it will not go all the way (360) but far enough, I will say more than 180 degrees. Videos on the DJI software were capped to 1080p and 30fps. Overall this DJI OM5 is a cool device not only for creators but also regular users who just want to take cool shots while on a trip or day to day. You can be very creative with this and you don’t have to be a professional. In the box it comes with the OM5 gimbal, magnetic phone clamp, spacer, tripod, USBC cable, carrying bag, and manuals.

    OK Concept, Incompatible With Many Popular Phones

    I was looking forward to using this but sadly, I can not. Not compatible with my Samsung S20 5G+... Not the end of the world, I have an old Pixel 3. Charged it up, [paired it... Nope. Not compatible. OK, I'll try my sons LG. Nope. Not compatible.

    Out of the box, quality feels decent, setup was simple. And that's all I can ay about it since it will not work with any phone in my house. Another note after extensive research, it seems most users note that the app and hardware are much more useful and feature rich with Apple products than with Android environment.

    I'll throw in the pictures so you can see what sadly will turn into a door stop as it will not work with any phones in my in my house.

    If you consider this product please learn from my mistake... Check thee compatibility of your phone.

    Small but sturdy

    Definitely a neat product. I’ve used it on the streets and it definitely works well. It’s sturdy and reliable. The mini tripod legs make for a great stand and is very convenient. The Bluetooth feature works and doesn’t need to be activated every time you turn off the camera. My only concern is that it does feel a little flimsy if you start putting bigger items on it, but so far it’s been good. I use my A7iii with my 16-35 F4 and a small mic with no problem.

    Makes Vlogging Easier and More Enjoyable

    The Sony vlogger accessory kit has been a great help with my Sony vlogging camera! Being able to hold my camera at a good angle along with the easier and safer hold, along with the grip, makes vlogging a much more enjoyable process. Also while recording I get the buttons on top of the camera mixed up and sometimes accidentally turn it off or click mode but with the vlogger accessory kit I can clearly see the record button, the zoom and the photo button. Also when not holding the handle it also doubles as a tripod and the camera is able to be tilted at multiple angles and spins 360 degrees. This will making videos for my class and creative projects a great experience and I highly would recommend this for those looking into vlogging with a Sony camera.

Bluetooth setup to the Sony zv1 is easy just follow the instructions. Ii can rotate 360° and tilting up and down from 80° to 90°.

    Great if you vlog, but it's also a nice remote

    It's good if you vlog, but the closeness of the camera still means the lense is tight on your face, especially with you're walking around with it. Otherwise, get a different grip with a longer handle.

    I like that it turns into a tripod and you can set it down very easily and use it with a quick push of the button. I plan on using it as a remote switch, however, while having it mounted on a tripod.

    There aren't many buttons on the device so it's easy to figure out. And, unlike other devices, I had no problem figuring out how to connect it via blutooth. (I did have to look at the instructions, but there were no surprised when I tried it.)

    It's also nice it came with a SD card. To capture 4K video, all of my old SD cards were useless.

    surprisingly small

    Surprisingly small but does the job nicely. I have decided to keep the remote shutter unit with me at all times for use with a selfie even when I did not bring the tripod. Only possible issue is that is will not open to 6+ inches to take a "portrait" shot, but then most tripods are going to have a "ball head" which will swing over to the side. Pairing with an iPhone was not a problem at all (for the bluetooth remote shutter). Finally, it seems rugged enough that I can leave it connected to the tripod and not fear for its safety.

    So small and in a "display" box that when I first opened it, I was sure there were parts missing. It was all there, just folded up.

    Great 'All-in-One' Filmmaking Kit

    The Røde iOS Edition Vlogger Kit is a great addition to any iPhone users video arsenal. The kit includes everything you need to create high quality, professional looking videos::

    1x VideoMic Me-L Microphone

    1x Rubber Clip (pre installed on the microphone)

    1x WS9 Windshield

    1x Smartgrip

    1x Tripod 2

    1x MicroLED On-Camera Light

    1x Clip-On Diffuser

    8x Colored Filters

    1x USB Charging Cable

    The kit is compatible with iPhone/iPod touch 6th Generation up to the iPhone 12 range, with the lightning port.

    Set up is incredibly easy, attach the iPhone clip to the tripod, charge and attach the LED light to the top of the iPhone mount, and plug in the microphone to the bottom of your iPhone and you are up and running. The LED light is bright, it has 4 light settings, long press the button on top to turn on and off, short press to switch between the light intensity settings. There is a light diffuser case and 8 different gels that you can use with it, meaning that the light can not only be used on top of the camera to light you/your subject, but you can also place colored gels on the LED light and use it as ambient lighting for a scene you are shooting. The light provides a nice full cast on the face, giving an even light without being to harsh, but I do wish it's angle could be adjustable. The 8 light gels come in their own little carry case so they remain clean and undamaged. The charge of the LED light lasts for approximately 1 hour before needing to be recharged again.

    The VideoMic Me-L is a nice, compact, direct connect, directional microphone that has a great sound field pick-up, that is only enhanced by adding the WS9 Windshield. This eliminated almost all background noise and interference and provided crisp, clear, intentional sound, helping make videos feel a lot more professionally finished. I did have an issue accessing the on-screen video button with the windshield on, but this can be overcome by using the volume up button on the iPhone (12 Pro in my case) to start and stop your video. You do need to remove your case from your phone in order to use the microphone in the lightning port.

    The iPhone clip is aluminum, with a spring actuator to keep it open as you place your phone in there, a nice touch, makes it easier to position the iPhone in the cradle. The handle of the tripod is heavy duty plastic/rubber and has a gimble on top to enable you to get the iPhone at just the right angle for your video. The handle has 3 legs on it to provide a stable base for the camera to rest on, and adjust as needed. There are not adjustable legs in themselves, they do not extent, retract or bend into other settings.

    Overall, very happy with the Røde Vlogger Kit for iPhone, it's elevated my content, giving a much more professional look and feel to it. If I were to change anything about it, I would like for the mount on top of the iPhone holder to have a small gimble on it so that you can rotate the LED up or down, away from the subject slightly, it would be nice if the handle could extend a little to give a little more versatility, and if the windshield was a little more sculpted to allow better access to the on-screen recording button, but again, these are 'nice-to-have's' on an already great product.

    Great kit to get you going!

    If you ever tried to vlog or do a livestream on YouTube or Instagram - you know that your phone is an awesome all inclusive device to do it. It has a great camera and a very decent microphone, but you have to find a way to hold it real steady, shield from wind (to avoid wind noise) and make sure you are not in the dark or not against the bright light source behind you.

    RODE Vlogger Kit is a perfect solution for all these problems!

    It comes as 3 major parts:

    Tripod - which is adjustable for 2 different height settings (by twisting the plastic ring just above the legs) or can be used as a handle with all 3 legs folded. It comes with a ball mount already attached, however it's easily removable and if you like - you can add an extension rod between the tripod and a ball mount (for example Invisible Selfie Stick works great) to extend the height. Phone mounting bracket is equipped with rubber pads to hold your phone gently but firmly in place, just tighten the screw and your phone is not going nowhere even if you shake or bump ip pretty hard. Ball mount allows for pretty much any angle or even a portrait mode.

    Top of the phone holder comes equipped with a cold shoe mount for a light and conveniently there is a little light cube in the kit! It's amazingly bright for it's size and light output can be adjusted in 4 steps (however it does not remember previous setting and always starts with the dimmest one) 60/160/230/300 lumens. Not only this light comes with a diffusor, but also with 8 colored gel filters to change the light color (or match ambient light temperature for a correct white balance for example).

    And of course - microphone. It's a cardioid pattern directional microphone capable of picking up frequencies from 20Hz to 20kHz, powered by the Lightning port from your device and also features 3.5mm jack for headphones. Noise rejection from off-axis makes your recordings sound professional (no "all around noise" as if you would used an internal phone microphone) and almost eliminates wind noise with included wind filter (aka dead cat). The only problem I had with the mic is that my phone's Lightning port is kinda deep when I use phone case, so I had to find a little Lightning port extension. Mic needs to be unplugged and re-plugged if you would like to change it's direction.

    Overall - it's all you need to start vlogging/streaming with your phone, it's lightweight enough to take it anywhere and makes it so much easier and safer (it's less likely that you drop your phone!).

    If you use a case might go for the universal

    Heading on a hiking trip and I wanted a tripod, handgrip, and microphone setup that I could take with. The RODE Vlogger kit looks like it fit the bill.

    First Impressions: WOW! Quality at its finest. The Materials are all solid and made from metal or high grade plastic. I'm already envisioning all the other ways I'll be able to use the mount in my home office.

    Assembly: Putting the pieces together is very intuitive and the adjustment wheels were very solid. I have no concerns that anything will slip or become misaligned when tightened.

    Lightning Connector on Mic: I wish there was a way to extend the lightning port at the bottom or that they included an adapter. I'm going hiking...on rocks. Their teaser video shows a dude using this while hiking...on rocks. The iPhone 12 phone cases generally cover the bottom of the phone which means that I'll need to either carve out a notch in a phone case, or use the microphone on a naked phone. If you're like me and prefer a phone case I would recommend going for the universal vlogger kit that puts the mic on the top mount. Certainly not enough for me to deduct a star. This kit is AWESOME!

    Fantastic kit, for a starter or seasoned vlogger

    This product was sent to me for the purpose of this review. The views and opinions expressed are my own and are in no way influenced by Rode or BestBuy.

    I received this kit today and wanted to see exactly what the capabilities were. The first thing I noticed is was the overall quality of the items included, from the tripod to the light diffusion everything seems of high quality.

    This make making videos easy with an iPhone. No need for an expensive camera, lens, mic, and tripod. The kit is simple and easy to use and comes with everything and more to create high quality videos.

    The microLED light comes with several colored filters that will help set the mood of your video. They easily slip into the diffuser that attaches to the front of the light. The light itself is very intense for such a small light and has four power levels. This little light also packs quite the punch. The lowest setting is bright for most situations and for getting rid of shadows on the users face. On the highest setting it is extremely bright and almost lights up a small room. Pretty sure this would be good to light up your face with a sunset behind you in a video.

    The microphone that comes with this kit is only for the iPhone as it plugs into the phone via a lightning connector. However this mic cannot be used with the MagSafe case. I even tried to trim out some of the material at the lightning port to allow it to plug in. Your best bet is to remove any case that you have when using the mic. Also included is a windshield to help on those breezy days to keep wind noise out of the audio.

    The SmartGrip is a phone holder that mounts to the tripod and allows you to keep the case on and accepts the iPhone 12 pro Max, so it will work with any iPhone that utilizes a lightning port. It has rubber material on the top and bottom of the clamping jaws to securely hold the phone in place. The grip is tapped for standard ¼-20 threads and will fit all other tripods on the market. The tripod itself is a tabletop sized tripod and the legs fold to make a handle for handheld vlogging. It is very comfortable to hold for extended periods of time.

    Overall for the price, this kit is well worth the money for someone looking to get into vlogging, making videos of family vacations, or making short films. I would recommend it over the larger more expensive options to start with and who knows, this may be all you will ever need.

    Fun toy!

    Bought this to simply try it out and have an easier audio set up than a full boom system for on-the-go. Audio is very crisp, but the tripod is a little finicky. It has to be on a surface that will catch with the rubber edges, otherwise it just slides down…

    Also- you can only plug in the mic without a phone case on, so that’s a little unfortunate..

    Pretty cool!

    This vlogging kit is actually pretty cool. I got it for my son who does so much online and it did not disappoint - he said it made it much easier and even more interesting as it opened up more options. The tripod is very easy to set up and is high quality material. The microphone has excellent sound and the wind shield is awesome to have because it allows a fan to continue to run in the background if indoors, and it blocks out a lot of wind disturbance if outside. It took a few tries with the camera filters but even those are cool to have because they provide different options for how videos will look, especially when lighting presents a challenge. Would definitely recommend to a friend .

    Returned for Universal

    Everything seemed great, but the iOS Lightning plug would not fit on my phone with my phone case on - Unfortunately, I don't want to take off the case every single time to use this, so I returned it to get the Rode Vlogger Universal kit instead.

    Spins itself loose way too easily to be usable

    The build quality is nice but the way it mounts to the camera is very poor. No matter how much you tighten the base, it still spins itself loose. I’d give it five stars if it weren’t for that but the thing is pretty much pointless if it isn’t stable on the camera body.

    A nifty tool for your videography

    The RØDE - Vlogger Kit USB-C Edition is a nice addition to level up your video taking capabilities whether you are a vlogger or simply one who wants to shoot videos. Of course camera phones nowadays takes good videos but audio is sometimes a hit or miss. With this microphone you can now have directional recording for your audio which provides better audio quality compared to the built-in mic in your phone.

    Included in the kit si the directional microphone which connects via USB-C (There is a lightning version of this mic too.) A mic clip, a tripod, a light with filters, a deadcat and a charging cable. Usage is pretty much simple, just plug the mic to your phone and you’re good to go. Of course the accessories are there too.

    Upon testing this mic, it gives more clarity to the sounds in front of the mic and background noise is reduced significantly. Still, unwanted noises can be recorded and that’s where the deadcat (that furry little thing included) comes in. With the deadcat on, unwnanted noises have mostly been cut off. Also, the mic has a 3.5mm jack wherein you can better monitor the sounds you are recording. Though not really necessary, a companion app is recommended to be installed in your phone. This is where you would be able to update the firmware of your phone. One thing to note tough is that this mic does not offer flash recording wherein you can edit audio and video separately and sync them back together. But then again, this is for the casual vlogger.

    The included light for me is to bright if you are vlogging yourself but sufficient enough if you are using it to video other stuff. There are filters included so the you can have some color depth in your video.

    I can’t say anymore for this mic save for the fact that it is a nifty addition to your video taking activities.

    A Great Kit for Anyone

    This is a hefty vlogger kit. It includes a lot of useful equipment and isn't necessarily just for vlogging either. I plan to use it mostly for content creation. Let me go through each included accessory.

    I'm ultimately on the fence with the Tripod 2. It's small. The material is great. It's lightweight, and the honeycomb design on the inside of the legs helps—less material means less weight, which is important if you're holding this for relatively long periods of time. It's nice to know this was not an oversight. It has rubber grips on the bottom of each leg for better stabilization, but depending on the surface, if there is too much weight on the tripod, they will slip, and if one goes, they'll all go. This would benefit from more snap positions other than the widest extension snap which is silly. Something worthy of note is that it gets ridiculously low. On a desk less that is just under waist height, I couldn't see my face. You'll need to set it on something else higher than this tripod or in addition to if you want to achieve this. The legs collapse into a solid handle so that you can hold it, and it feels all right in the hand. This is good since I imagine most people will probably be holding this anyway. I managed to hold the tripod for about 10 minutes while recording and hardly felt tired.

    The SmartGrip makes it easy to put your phone in and adjust. It stays snug against the rubber rests which shouldn't case any cosmetic damage to your phone. When locked properly, my phone doesn't move at all, but make sure buttons aren't in the rests. Please be aware that the back of the box mentions that the mount works for phones between 65-85mm wide, or roughly 2.5-3.3 inches.

    The MicroLED light is super bright, even on the lowest setting. I wouldn't recommend this for even a slightly dim setting unless you're okay with it being right next to where you'll looking. It will cast a shadow if there is a foreground object, since the LED is small and pinpoint-like. In brighter settings, whether inside or outside, it works great. It gets rid of shadows on the subject to make it much clearer. I haven't messed with the colored filters too much, but they're nice to have. It's not the easiest to adjust because there is a small gap between each locking plate that one keeps the assembly on the grip, and the other positions the light in a certain direction. The small gap makes it hard to tighten. I do feel the top locking plate has no reason to be there; an unmoving LED light would work fine. I like that it's rechargeable. I don't know how long it lasts, but being LED, I'm sure it lasts quite a while. I don't feel it was necessary to include a charging cable for the LED light. If you have a phone with a USB-C port, there's an extremely good chance that you already have a charging cable.

    The VideoMic Me-C microphone is small and has some weight. It feels like it has quality. You'll of course pick up sound bouncing off of walls if you're inside unless you have material that mitigates this effect. But for a microphone that you can get for a phone, especially a USB-C model, I'm quite pleased. Sound recorded with the microphone sounds clear and clean. You can monitor what's coming through the microphone by using the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the back of the microphone. I plugged in a headset and heard exactly what the microphone was picking up, loud and clear.

    The included WS9 windshield does a good job after some testing (nothing extensive). It works well and gets the job done.

    The microphone came with a rubber clip that requires some explanation. If you have a case on your phone, you'll need to take the clip off the microphone. It will not fit. If you don't have a case, you can use the clip to keep the microphone in place. I still don't see it as necessary, as it's already snug. Even with a case, the microphone alone does plug in. It would depend on the case, I'm sure, but my case is somewhat low-profile. You may have to end up taking the case off if you do have one and want to utilize the rubber clip. It's possible I'm missing something with the clip, but I have yet to understand its purpose.

    Overall, it's a great kit. I don't expect myself to vlog very much, but it'll be nice to have for times that I'm at the beach or in the mountains and want to get a personal or unique video. I like having a better-sounding microphone for my phone in situations that benefit from a directional microphone.

    A few drawbacks

    vLogger

    I'll admit that I'm not a vLogger but I grabbed this unit because I do a lot of colaborative messaging for work. When I travel I don't always have a laptop handy so I thought the Rode vLogger would be an acceptable alternative.

    I grabbed the Android (or USB-C) version to use with my Samsung Galaxy Note 10. I'm impressed with the quality of all of the components that come with this kit. The plastic tripod/handle has a solid feel to it and the RODE imprinted name on the legs provides a little more grip than smooth plastic. The swivel is easy to adjust and firm once locked in. The phone mount is solid aluminum with indents and rubber pads to firmly hold the phone in place. The range of clamping should be adequate for just about any phone. The Note 10 is pretty large and the clamp had plenty of range to accommodate. I shook the assembly very vigorisly and nothing moved. The phone mount also has a hotshoe slot which holds the LED light. The light is very compact and has 4 different intensity levels not to mention that it also comes with a variety of filters to add hue or soften. The light has a rechargable battery however I haven't had an opportunity to check the battery life.

    The microphone mounts firmly to the phone using the USB-C connection and there are a few "feet" on the microphone that help stabliize it. My Android phone recognizes the microphone as an input device automatically. Sound quality is improved over input from the phone's built in microphone and the windsock helps reduce wind noise which is huge plus when using outdoors. The RODE Reporter app seems maybe a bit unnecessary as the Android built in apps seem to be adequate. Comments on the Google Play app store are mixed and I haven't spent much time with it.

    For the purpose I grabbed this unit it seems to work fine. It's a great mobile office addition. Something I can use in an airport during a Teams or Zoom call. But there are a couple of issues that make it not quite perfect.

    - First, you can't use the microphone with an case that I have. The USB-C jack is not long enough to make a connect. So I constantly find myself pulling the case off and putting it back on when I'm using the vLogger.

    - Second, make sure your phone is fully charged because you can not charge your phone and use the microphone at the same time. I doubt the mic draws much from the phone battery but if you have a lengthy session then you might be in trouble. I might invest in a USB-C dongle that lets me charge and keep my case on. Maybe the universal kit would have been better for me.

    - Third, you do not get sound out of the phone with the microphone plugged in. You must use the monitor (aka earphone) jack on the back of the microphone. When doing video chats I don't want to wear headphone or earbuds. I do think that the Bluetooth earbuds will work will the mic is plugged in though. Still, I'd like the option to not have to wear them. I can imagine if I was a vLogger they might not care for this as well.

    So... in closing. In spite of the drawbacks that I mentioned this unit provides a value alternative to other setups. I'm about to take a vacation and I might even test out the video recording capabilities.

    Perfect Starter Kit for Cellphone Content Creators

    Look no further!!! If you are getting into video using your phone; this is the DAY ONE starter kit! ANYONE considering getting into vlogging, home videos, or using their phone as their first camera in content creation, this is for you. All in a single box, you won't find a better solution for audio, lighting, and stabilization to upgrade your stock handheld phone footage. It covers all the bases for increasing your baseline for the quality of your videos. In the box, you get a Rode VideoMic ME, a "dead cat" for outdoor mic work, color correcting gels with an adapter, the phone "cage" or bracket, and a ball head handheld tripod.

    Your audio will instantly be upgraded on ANY PHONE that has USB-C. The included rechargeable USB-C light is perfect for fixing bad lighting and putting the focus on your face. You can color correct your light with the included filters as well for an added bonus. The handle adds an element of stabilization to your footage which is a plus. The phone bracket is high quality and the perfect "cage" for your phone. Utilizing a screw type of closing mechanism versus the spring found in cheaper phone mounts and built out of solid metal, RODE quality for sure. Simply slide your phone into the cage, plug in your mic, turn on the light, and press record - easy as that.

    The audio is excellent, and you definitely will hear a more professional sound coming from your footage. The light is impressive with almost a Fresnel lens throw and 3 levels of brightness, and it mounts to any hot shoe. You can gel the light by using the included filters, which is just another professional touch for your footage. In all, you can't go wrong here with this. From the first-time video creator all the way to the seasoned professional who wants a nice portable setup to capture BTS footage and everyone in between. You won't be sorry!

    The perfect all in one kit!

    This truly is the perfect all in one kit for the vlogger on the go!

    It's nice and compact and can fit almost anywhere. Comes with literally everything you need to make professional videos. A nice sturdy mini tripod that the legs can fold up and it can be used as a handheld. The tripod attaches to a sturdy clamp that should accommodate most phones and hold them very securely. The included microphone and windscreen is a great upgrade from any phones microphone. It will definitely take your audio recordings to the next level. In my tests outdoors on a slightly windy day the mic with this kid with the windscreen on is a night and day difference from the mic on my Galaxy S20! If you are shooting in low light situations it even includes an awesome very bright rechargeable LED light. Yeah, its not going to turn nighttime into daytime. But it will definitely help your low light videos to make you easily see your subject. It has 3 levels of light to suit your needs. It even included some colored diffuser gels to add a little color to your videos. Another thing is you could use the colored light in the background of your video to spice things up a bit. They even include a short USB-C cable to charge the light!

    The one small little gripe that I have is that I wish it came with some kind of carrying case to keep it all organized, but other than that, it truly is the perfect vlogging kit. It has definitely elevated my video's, and I know it will yours as well! I could not recommend this kit enough! It's worth every penny and then some!

    So many features on this gimbal!

    The Build Quality is really nice. A mixture of Carbon Fiber and all metal is great for this price. What I also really like is the quick release feature and to add a quick release plate under the camera and balance it that way so then I can just easily remove the camera and attach it onto a tripod and then go back to the stabilizer seamlessly without rebalancing. Saves a lot of time. I also love that you can attach the camera vertically which is something unique and you don't see that often on a gimbal, a secondary slot just for vertical shooting. Great for Instagram Stories and TikTok, etc. The last thing I really like is the Zhiyun App, there are multiple videos on how to calibrate it and balance it and to make sure that everything is good and I can always go back to those videos to refresh my mind which is so helpful. I'm excited to use the Gimbal more often

    Great gimbal for even a beginner

    I have never touched a gimbal in my life and I’m glad zhiyun made this one super easy to set up and use! It works great, the footage is nice and smooth. Only thing is you might have to mess with the settings for tilt, roll and pan but it’s to your own preference. Straight out of the box it works fine too. I’m glad I bought it. I have already seen such an improvement in video quality because of this gimbal. I use my Tamron 28-75mm lens on it with the a7iii and I also use the sigma 16mm on my Sony a7iii and both work fine on the gimbal.

    Best Gimbal for the Money!

    This is probably one of the best Gimbals on the market given the price point and what it is capable of with all of the upgrades.

    The gimbal alone provides stable images. I have used it with a Sony a6400 and a full frame Sony A7C and it works flawlessly. Time lapse, the gimbal can be set to do diagonal movements from the app, and my camera can be controlled from the gimbal.

    ***Sony users be advised that if you set the gimbal to adjust camera settings DO NOT SET TO SONY!!! For some reason there is a glitch. However, if you set the camera control to Canon or Panasonic, you will be able to control aperture and shutter on your camera from the gimbal.***

    This gimbal really shines when you purchase the extra upgrades which aren't cheap but worth it in the long run.

    Zhiyun sells an HDMI wireless transmitter, receiver, and remote that are designed for the Weebill. The image transmitter can be used for anything; you can plug it into a PlayStation and transmit video wirelessly so you can use it for more than just your camera. The remote combined with the transmitter/receiver gives more stable motion control than you would get with your phone.

    The main reason I purchased the transmitter/reciever is because that allows object tracking. From the app you can place a square around just about any object and once it's locked on, the gimbal will follow that object 360 degrees. If you're doing a presentation, the camera will follow you as you walk around which adds quite a bit of versatility.

    This gimbal also works well on a slider. If you're doing a real estate shoot and you need to pull into a hallway and turn right, the gimbal slider combo provides great cinematic movements.

    I used to own a Feiyutech a1000 before but the Weebill is definitely the best gimbal on the market for small mirrorless cameras.

    Good Gimbal for the price

    Nice sized gimbal, good size and weight. Swapped out the docking plate with a quick release plate for easier access. The app is hard to understand and is required to activate the gimbal. If you're not tech savvy or a critical thinker this will immediately turn you off and make you return the product. Once you are connected to the app its a great tool for your photo/videography. The image transmitter should be purchased along side this gimbal to get the best use out of it, but it isn't necessary. Also purchase a separate handle, magic arm and extension arm.

    Mounting plate and base need a major change

    First off, I am pretty impressed with this gimble. I am new to the gimble part of video. But I wil say that it has definitely upped my video quality by stabilizing the picture.

    I am using this with a Canon 80D. The nice part is that this setup is fairly light compared to other gimbles. I have been able to balance this setup fairly easily. It only takes me a couple of minutes to get it balanced now.

    Now for some of the downfalls of this gimble. First, and worst of all (and is the reason I took away a couple of stars) is that it is very difficult to get it mounted to the baseplate. I have had this installed, I thought correctly, all to have my camera fall off. I almost broke my camera at one point when it seemed solid on. Then I took a shot raising the camera all to have it go flying off hitting me in the face and my camera hitting the ground. Luckily it was soft ground leaving only a very minor gouge in the case. So now I have to lift up on my camera alone to see if the mounting plate falls off the baseplate.

    Second, remembering all the sequences of the controls is annoying (especially since I go between uses quite a few weeks). But the buttons are in various number of locations on the body of the gimble. Once I do remember, it works well.

    So beyond the mounting issues, this has been a great addition to my video arsenal. But the mounting issue is a pretty large issue for me. I have kept this product. But if I had the money at the time, I probably would have gone with one of the other brands.

    Would I recommend this the Weebill S? If you can get past the mounting plate and base, for the money, yeah. If not, no. Look somewhere else.

    Plastic Body

    It works great with good battery life. But it is a plastic frame, the threads fell out of the base of the tripod mount. but a cheap rethread was all it needed.

    A Lack in experience in balancing gimbals does require a small learning curve.

    Very happy with each component of this kit. The cellphone holder works well and even fits large phones like my Galaxy Note 10+.

    The tripod has a collar that rotates allowing for 2 different heights (by changing how far the legs can go out). It feels very solid.

    The light is nice and bright. The color of the light that it provides is great!

    Excellent portable tripod/light for video rec/call

    In my post-retirement life, I have taken a position as an online instructor for a graduate leadership studies program; as such, I often find myself needing to either a) make video calls for real-time student/instructor interaction, or b) record/produce personalized videos for inclusion in my online classroom. During my audition of the Digipower Instructor Video Kit, I found this setup to provide that extra bit of professional polish for either activity, and all from a pretty complete, compact, and user-friendly package.

    The tripod is a reasonably standard 3-legged affair offering a mix of metal and plastic components that clocks in at just under 8.3 ounces. While the weight is not burdensome, it's heavier than it looks and should easily stand up to a mild battle with the elements without blowing over. At minimal extension, the distance between feet is about 8"; when fully extended, the feet are roughly 10" apart from each of the other corners of the equilateral triangle that the legs form--so take that real estate commitment into account if you're working at a cramped desktop. The slide-out legs are not infinitely adjustable but instead offer 5 extension lengths that click into place; the slide release buttons are thoughtfully on the INSIDE of each leg making it unlikely that you'll accidentally collapse one of the legs while moving/reorienting the tripod--nice! The slide-out clamp securely held my iPhone 12 in place...with a much wider 6S Plus, the fit was still secure, but the MUCH tighter resistance on the mechanism meant I was at very the end of the clamp's extension--I cannot think of any modern cell phone on the market today that would be short enough to mount vertically between the jaws of the tripod clamp. About the only niggle I had with the tripod's design was that the threaded mounting point sits precariously close to the jaws of the phone clamp. If you happen to lose the little rubber cap that normally covers the threaded mount, you may to be very careful when you slide your phone into place (especially if you're also wrestling the clamp open with a great deal of force), or you could damage your phone or scratch the case as it passes by the metal threads.

    The included lavaliere mic proved to be a necessity for any video I recorded from more than a few feet away. Sadly, the microphone's hardware is not noise-cancelling, but it is omni-directional, so you'll have to consider making your videos in slightly more quiet surroundings lest you pick up many a stray sound source in the background coming from pretty much any other direction. However, the improvements in recorded audio quality, volume and clarity vs. using the phone's built-in mic (again, especially at a distance--the cable itself reaches out to 10 feet away) was significant and immediately noticeable in both recorded videos and for my video call participants. However, once I opted to use the lavaliere mic instead of the phone's microphone, I had to don a set of Bluetooth earbuds to hear the caller because the mic requires the use of a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter, which then mutes the built-in speakers (I imagine Android phones without an audio jack will need a similar dongle for the lavaliere mic). This may not be a problem for those simply looking to use the tripod and/or light to spiffy up some otherwise plain-vanilla phone-sourced video/recordings, but you should be aware of some of the hoops you might have to jump through if you want to use the complete package during a live video call. The included Bluetooth shutter remote helpfully started and stopped video recording (or snapped a photo when I left the phone in 'camera' mode) and includes buttons for both iOS and Android--strangely, both buttons worked flawlessly on my iPhone 12 so I'm not sure what to make of that--other than it wasn't necessary for me to fumble around or look down at the remote to find the correct button to use...YMMV.

    Finally, the big draw of this kit is the rechargeable and adjustable LED light. Construction feels substantial and high quality as it is mostly metal with an informative LCD screen on the back to indicate the currently selected color temperature, brightness, battery charge, and estimated illumination time remaining. The power button doubles as the mode selector (temperature or brightness selection) while two other buttons handle +/- adjustments. The color temperature ranges in 100K increments from a warm, almost pale orange candlelight-type glow at 3100K; to a more cool white, near daylight-looking 5500K. Brightness adjustments run from 1-5% in increments of 1, and then by 5s up to 100%--the difference in brightness is definitely noticeable, though the contrast between 50% and 100% brightness seemed far less stark and noticeable than between 1% and 50%. These differences were also reflected in the run-time variations we observed. With the light pack fully charged, illumination at 1% brightness was estimated at more than 8 hours; at 50% brightness, run time was estimated at just over 1.5 hours; and at 100% brightness, estimated run time was only about 50 minutes. However, even at 1% brightness, the light is very effective (read, VERY bright) and can be difficult to look at when you're using the entire setup in close-quarters, though the slide-on/snap-on diffusion screen does help soften the harshness of all those LEDs in your face.

    This light kit is definitely geared towards "regular" video use as only variations in white color temperatures are supported--there are no RGB type lighting effects. You can also use the light separately from the tripod kit as the light screws onto an individual shoe that a) slides into the top of the tripod's own phone clamp shoe mount, or b) accommodates other cameras and video recorders that feature a shoe mount of their own. About the only things missing here are a small carrying case or bag to help keep everything together, and a few memory slots to store some commonly used lighting presets. Between the 25 color temperature settings, and the 24 brightness level adjustments, and the possible inclusion of the diffusion filter, you essentially have 1200 lighting combinations to pick from. For the average consumer, that might be a few too many granular lighting options depending on how many different types of lighting environments are commonly used, so a few shortcut settings saved to memory would definitely be useful. Overall, however, this is a great/flexible little kit that really has the potential to elevate the quality or production values of your phone-based video calls and recordings without feeling like you have to cart around an entire studio's worth of equipment.

    FANTASTIC LIGHT KIT FOR PHONE CAMERA WEBCAM ZOOM

    DIGIPOWER - THE INSTRUCTOR - 8.5" TRIPOD PROFESSIONAL VIDEO KIT -WORK, TEACH & LEARN FROM HOME - BLACK

    MODEL:DP-VLX100

    Best Buy Tech Insider Network

    FANTASTIC LIGHT KIT FOR PHONE CAMERA WEBCAM ZOOM VLOG

    The star of this show is the DIGIPOWER light unit. First, you can adjust the temperature between 3100 and 5500 Kelvin (yellow to pure white). Next, you can adjust the brightness output from barely there to “land a plane” levels of brightness. Finally, all these settings are easily changed from the built in display on the back.

    I’ve used several budget similar lights and none can hold a candle to the DIGIPOWER (pun intended)

    The additional accessories (tripod, remote control, lapel mic) included in the DIGIPOWER - THE INSTRUCTOR are the icing on the proverbial cake.

    PRO’s

    - Amazing Light

    - Included Tripod can be used with a phone or camera

    - Long Cord on MIC

    - Remote Control

    SETUP and USAGE

    Everything in the DIGIPOWER - THE INSTRUCTOR was well packaged and seems to be of reasonable quality. It was easy to test and setup everything without the instructions. To pair the remote to your phone, just go into settings and add it like any other device (it shows as a keyboard on my android). You do have to stretch the phone bracket pretty hard to fit in a medium or larger phone, but it is very secure. I was easily able to use the tripod, light, and mic to record some short videos and even take still pictures. I enjoy the longer cord to allow me to stand up while recording. The mic does a good job overall.

    The clip on the lapel mic does not quickly spring back into shape, so it keeps falling off my collar unless I wait a few seconds before letting go. I assume it will correct itself over time. The light takes a little force to attach to the stand, and is very secure.

    RECCOMENDATION

    The DIGIPOWER light is fantastic (did I mention that), THE INSTRUCTOR accessories are good for every day video use. The tripod is a versatile desktop unit. The phone/camera mounts is simple and sturdy. I can recommend DIGIPOWER - THE INSTRUCTOR for person vloggers, creating instructional videos, and anyone who just wants some better lighting for videos, photos, and web conferences. I will be using the kit for my daily calls at work where I can never get the lighting just right.

    Great, Fast Improvement to Video Conferences

    After this last school year being a hybrid of face-to-face and virtual, I knew I was going to need to level up my virtual setup. I didn’t really want something bulky as I wanted to keep it portable to take it back and forth between my classroom and home. This little guy fills that need perfectly.

    Essentially you are getting a very sturdy and well built tripod, with a cell phone holder, a customizable light, remote, and wired mic. I have been using this on my iPhone so haven’t used the microphone, but the built-in iPhone mics have done a great job so far. The tripod is very steady and has some great mobility to get the right angle. It also allows a short extension to make the tripod a little taller.

    The cellphone holder was wide enough to hold my iPhone 12 Pro Max without a case. The area that grips your phone also has some foam pads to keep you from damaging your phone. Above your cradled phone you have a slot to attack the light. The light includes some great customization, including being able to dial in the brightness and how cool or warm you want to white light to be. There is a small screen on the light that allows you to customize the light, give you battery status, and gives you an estimate of how long the battery should last.

    The kit also includes a remote that you can pair through Bluetooth. This works well, but I have yet to really find a need for it. I have normally used my Apple Watch, and its remote camera feature to frame shots and take them remotely.

    All in all, this is a nice kit to make some significant improvement to your online meetings. The tripod holds everything steady and at a great angle, and the light is great. With the light’s customization you can really dial in how you want to be lit to look your best online.

    Outstanding Tripod

    If you’re a person who likes to be on camera and likes to look good and be heard clearly this device is for you. What you get with this, an adjustable light with rechargeable battery, adjustable tripod, microphone, wireless shutter remote and the USB charging cable. Doing video calls using your mobile with this thing is a breeze. The phone holder was able to accommodate my Note 20 plus fairly easily. The tripod legs can be expanded into 5 different positions to adjust the height and they are also reinforced with metal so they will not break easily. Your mobile device will be about 9 inches tall from the flat surface. The ball mount will do miracles with your device, you can pretty much position it to any vertical or horizontal position.

    The light is where this thing shines. With the light on, the clarity of your image is very noticeable. Brightness can be adjusted from 3100K to 5500K and 25 different color temperatures. The light is also rechargeable and will last approx 16hr according to the manufacturer. After I fully charged the battery it displayed 9hrs @ 5500k and 1% brightness. The brighter the light the more power it will consume. At the highest setting the battery will last about 1hr. All that information is easily available on the easy to read LCD screen that’s on the battery pack behind the light.

    Moving on to the microphone. When we do any video calls or recording it is very important to be heard as clearly as possible. The microphone included in this package does exactly that, it is not perfect but it does the job very well. One of the things we notice about recording sound with mobile phones is that we sound like we're in a tin can, and the mobile mic picks up almost every background noise from your surroundings. The microphone included does a very good job masking those sounds and actually focusing on the primary voice, and the cable is very long too so you can move around easily.

    You also get a camera shutter that connects to the phone via Bluetooth. There are two buttons one for IOS the other for Android. They both actually worked on my android but did the same exact function. You will have to place an imaging app either to record or to take pictures, the remote will act as a start/stop or camera shutter. It is very easy to use and to pair with your mobile device. Overall this product is very useful and beneficial for those who's on camera all the time. It is easy to use and is travel friendly and it doesn't take much space and is very light and its functionality is outstanding.

    Great for everyday video calls only; Great light!

    For those looking to take their video conferencing, Zoom call game to a better quality, this is a solid option. It is excellent for basic conferencing as it comes with a tripod, phone mount, lavalier mic, and the prime feature, the versatile light. First, the overall pros and cons:

    PROS

    - Light is very bright

    - Solid tripod; has phone clip and threaded mount included

    - Audio adapter is also included

    - Light is adjustable, has controls for both color temp and brightness, plus is rechargeable

    CONS

    - tripod clamp mouth barely fit my Galaxy Note 10+; can't imagine anything larger fitting

    - Remote shutter is not user friendly; took quite a bit of trial and error to get all the settings right

    - For newer usb-c phones with no audio jack, you absolutely need both an audio to USBC adapter,, as well as Bluetooth ear buds to hear the person you're chatting with.

    - Audio quality of Mic is not good -- there's almost no noise cancelling effect at all

    The main thing I am taking away from this is the sturdy tripod and the versatile light. It even comes with a slide one diffuser (which I found extremely necessary as the light is so bright, even on the lowest setting).

    A noise cancelling lav is paramount for video streaming though, so for that I would say pass on this one. However for everyday video conferencing or recording, this would be a solid 4 out of 5.

    Nice and Bright

    Doing meetings and classes from home has been the “norm” for the past year-and-a-half. What I’ve noticed was despite being in a well lit rooms I still come off a little dark. Now with this Digipower, the lighting has been fixed and the accompanying mic set up has made video meetings a better experience.

    In the box, you have the tripod, microphone, wireless shutter remote, and LED light. Set up is pretty simple as the phone holder on top of the tripod folds upward with adjustable clamp to hold it in place. The LED light slides on top of that. The tripod legs can adjust from 6.5” to another 2”. The mount can be adjusted further though the ball movement for easy swivels. My only issue is the screw cover right in front of the phone can easily be lost as I fear that my phone, if not properly clamped may fall and land on that screw.

    The 112 LED light gives you a nice bright fixture to enhance your video quality. Per their website, the 1500mAh Li-Poly battery provides you up to 16 hours of battery life. I’ve used it for my morning rounds on the lowest brightness for 1 hour for the past 2 weeks and so far I priced about half the battery life left. On the back of the light you have the settings screen where you can adjust brightness and color temperatures, and view the battery life. The the right side is the Power ON/OFF button that can also double as the color mode and brightness level switch. Below that are the increase and decrease buttons.

    The included microphone has been a good addition to my video/sound quality. The windscreen helps minimize background noise and sounds as I do video calls either at home or when at home with the kids and dog being loud.

    Overall, this has been a great addition and enhancing experience to my video calls.

    Nice video kit for VLOG enthusiasts

    The Digipower Instructor video kit has been a useful tool for me. I like to make videos for blogs that I do on various forms of social media. Being able to have a sturdy tripod that stands at 8.5" allows me to place it securely on my desk or countertop.

    The provided items that come included are a clip on omnidirectional microphone which has helped improve my audio clarity when speaking. Since I have an iPhone XR I utilized my lightning adapter to connect this to my phone. Also I'm impressed with the LED light this comes with. 112 Bi-color LED light goes from a yellow tint to a bright white light. You'll get 24 different brightness settings and 25 color temperature settings. The digital LCD control panel display shows your color temperature and your lighting control setting, along with the estimated battery life time. You'll also get a remote that comes with this that connects via bluetooth allowing for you to control the camera and video. My iPhone XR with a case on it fits well into the tripod and it holds my phone securely.

    Overall I'm pleased with this Digipower Instructor video kit for it's functionality and simplicity. I can take it with me on the go and vlog with the comfortable handle/grip. I am also able to use it in my indoor settings and ensure that I have a great lighting situation with the LED lights, and great audio clarity with the wired microphone. Helpful investment for someone like myself looking to do more videos on social media or for work/school scenarios.

    Great Kit for Shooting Professional Looking Videos

    The Digipower Instructor, Video call kit, is a cool piece of tech for anyone that wants to add a professional feel to their videos. The Kit included a tripod, Bluetooth remote, wired 9 1/2 Ft. microphone, and a rechargeable studio light. All the components are well built and are made of premium feeling materials.

    The tripod is very sturdy and has two 1/4 inch threaded screws for securing your camera and the studio light.in my use it easily held my Pixel phone, iPhone and GoPro.

    The microphone also works great. I tested it 2 feet away from me and then at 6 feet while clipped onto my shirt. In both circumstances it made my voice sound a million times better than the built-in mic on my phone. However, it did pick up a lot of ambient noise, so make sure you are in a quiet room when using it

    The Bluetooth shutter button was a handy tool for starting and stopping video. It easily paired with my phone but unfortunately, did not work with my Gopro.

    As for the studio light, it is the best part of this kit. It has a 1500 mAh battery that lasts anywhere between one to nine hours, the color temperature is adjustable and even in its lowest setting it is still very bright.

    Overall this is an excellent kit and I recommend it to anyone that wants to create more professional looking videos.

    Solid little rig!

    So I read many reviews prior to buying this gimbal. Many were gleaming & others were, well... NOT AT ALL. My theory was that the quality control from the manufacturer was rather poor though the product was rather phenomenal when built properly. I also read that the customer service from Gudsen was absolutely atrocious so if you were one of the unlucky ones to get a poorly manufactured gimbal then you were basically out of luck. So now we come to my decision to purchase this gimbal from my trusted brick and mortar Best Buy. Being that I really wanted this gimbal over the competition but I was apprehensive about what I may receive I thought I could purchase this from Best Buy, add on the service plan, and then I’d have a trusted company I could return to if I ended up with a failure of a product. I know it costs more but I'm one of those who is willing to pay for quality and assurances.

    So I’ve had this gimbal for about a month. I’ve taken it on multiple shoots and it has performed quite well. Several people complain of the complexity of the menu but that hasn’t been a problem for me. I was shooting with a Nikon D810 which unfortunately had not connectivity to this gimbal but I am now switching to the z6 which I read has support. (That is still yet to be seen)

    All in all I am very satisfied and I would purchase this again, but only with the 3rd party coverage. Again I chose Best Buy for this coverage & local store appeal.

    Steady and strong

    I love this gimbal. It pairs with my M50, which allows me to change ISO, shutter, and aperture from the gimbal controls. It has motors strong enough to hold some of my heavier EF lens I use with the EF to M adapter. But keep in mind, this is not something I use for everyday shooting because it does get heavy.

    Good enough for a side video hustle, shooting b-roll or YouTube.

    Highly recommended.

    Almost perfect

    This gimbal certainly ups the game for providing shooters with options for heavier setups. Being able to lock each axis for setup and storage is great. Initial tests with a heavier camera is good and with a heavier camera there is a need for something to help support the weight while shooting. Wish it came with a longer center support. Not having something like that also makes it cumbersome to pick up. Overall, comparing it to the DJI Ronin S, this is a better buy.

    On the third trip to the store to get a light and camera tripod for my vatering business videos, i finally got a knowledgeable and helpful professional that helped me choose whe products I needed!

    Kudos to him and not so glowing praise to the apathetic and uninformed fellas before him. I was about to give up and go Amazon.

    Perfect for the Sony ZV-1 and similar cameras

    I primarily use this with the Sony ZV-1 and it’s like this gimbal was made with with it and similar cameras in mind. While the controls aren’t explained very well in the instructions, it’s pretty easy to mess around with and figure out what each mode allows you to control. I’ve been able to produce some professional looking footage using this and would highly recommend it. Be careful using it with smart phones though, I almost cracked my screen because the gimbal goes “limp” when the device is off balance. So make sure you balance it correctly if you don’t want to see your screen slammed into the device.

    Steep learning curve but worth the time

    It took me a while to figure out how to work this thing, but that's mostly because it took me a while to read the directions. This stabilizer is great for recording steady video, as well as just a nice handle for a camera without a particularly good one. It's got different balance modes so it's likely that you'll be able to find one that's right for you.

    One star off since it doesn't appear to be able to handle anything larger than your average DSLR with a standard lens

    Won't work with Nikon

    I bought this being super happy about the size and weight. I was even more happy about the complete compatibility it had with cameras, phones and action cameras. I have all three a Nikon D5600, GoPro8 and Samsung S8. My main camera is the Nikon D5600, I checked the weight with lens and it seemed fine until I went to set it up and had issues. I checked all the YouTube links I could find until I came across their own link and tun tun tun tuuuuunnnnnnn!!!! They had a compatibility list, so what's my next move? Check the list? I checked the list and guess what!!! NO NIKON ON THE LIST. Sadly I had to return it. My dreams shattered. My Hope's smeared in the bottomless pit of despair. Thanks Zhiyun, you did this!!!!

    I dont believe the weight limit

    I bought this gimbal to use with a samsung NX500 APS-C camera. With the kit lens, this camera weights just under 1 pound (15.7oz) which is well under the 1.6 pound capacity. I have it perfectly balanced (with the lens out) and motors on high and notice occasional buzzing from it like it is struggling and slowness at times. My footage is much smoother - far from perfect but Ill take it for the size.

    Upon arrival it was out of level and the calibration was quite an experience that required a youtube video to figure out the positioning. My big issue with it is the android app.. it connects and works for just a fraction of a second then disconnects. I have tried everything but no luck..

    Using my other lenses, it seems like 20oz is too much for this gimbal.

    The Crane M2

    This is the only gimbal I have used but it is easy to operate. Connects well to the app used to control it. Handles my Lumix G7 without issue. When I had a problem with the trigger on it. Zhiyun handled the return and repair promptly and it's been used for a number of video shoots since then.

    Good gimbal for light cameras

    Works good. Takes a bit of back and forth toggling to balance but I’ve got a bit faster with time. Works fine with my Sony a6400 mirrorless camera. Sometimes I could use more power or lighter camera with motions and movement from the gimbal.

    Lots of options

    Got this for the prize and the reviews. received it with in a week and it was half way assemble. The rest was pretty easy and does come with clear instructions. Asked my self why would some one need three phones facing them. no matter, I was hoping that it could be used facing away and it does so it could be use if I was facing some one else and they could use this as well. The only draw back is that if your phone has any type of casing it wont hold on to it. I have a rugged phone (3/8 thick) and it barely holds on with no case. Love the three light settings (color temperature, white, blue , yellow and brightness control). The weight of the base is not to heavy but enough to keep it stable. In the picture, I have two phones facing forward and one away. It has two ball joints so it can be adjusted to any of your liking, One for the light (plastic by the way and feels cheap but better than glass, if it fell you would have a mess or a serious injurie) the other on the phone bar with the attachments that can also be adjusted. Used it for a few meeting and I gotten a lot of complements. Only had it for a week, so cant really say how for the long it will last but I take care of my stuff. Its feels really solid except for the light but I'm not complaining, others might have a deferent preference. Thinking of getting another one for a friend.

    The tripod is fragile, but the light works great.

    I like the light, but the tripod is fragile. We put it near its highest height. It tipped over and broke. I tried to return it, but it was a week or so past to return policy so I was stuck trying to hold it together using a red ribbon, but it's difficult. I couldn't see purchasing another one for that reason.

    SUNPAK Essentials Vlogging Kit Worth Buying

    Purchased with the surge in Zoom-call after start of the pandemic. Unit is functional providing face lighting from desktop setup at a height of 40 inches located behind the desktop monitor offering one button click-on and plug-in to rear monitor USB port. Price point was reasonable, includes a storage/carry-case for portability. Have not used the Smarphone bracket, but is easy to install and allows for the use of up to three (3) Smartphones. Durable and sturdy. My use has been for facial lighting on stationary desktop Zoom-call only. Highly recommended!!!

    Not bad

    This stand is good for a light to help me with makeup, I have a samsung galaxy s10+ and it does hold my phone without a case. It doesn't extend enough to hold with the case. The bottom stand is weighted which is nice. However. It's pretty difficult to put together, the pieces were all over the place the instructions are unclear and it is unstable when extended to full height. The ring light doesn't stay in position exactly right. Overall if you are looking for something cheap it isn't bad. I would maybe recommend.

    Sunpak - Esesntials Vlogging Kit

    This Kit works well. However the horizontal member that holds cell phones should be longer to allow horizontal orientation of longer cell phones in the middle position. The round base is not large enough or heavy enough to support the fully extended vertical shaft safely on some carpeted floors. I do not know if the shaft diameter and threading would allow a regular microphone base to be substituted for some applications..

    A stong all metal gimble with one small quirk

    Bought this gimble to use for when Im fishing and doing action sports to get a clean smooth shot. It definitely works as it should but is a little trickly to get used to at first. Im not one to read the manual on anything I buy but i highly recommend reading it on this one if youre new to using gimbles. My only real downside on this item is the battery life. It doesnt last very long. I mean i use it for hours on a tripod using the follow mode while im fishing so it could just be that also. ll in all this is a great gimble for just starting out into the photography and videography scene. If they can make a stronger battery life I would definitelybuy another one!

    Very Nicely Built Gimbal

    This is a well built gimbal. I have a larger one by Zhiyun and it works great for my DSLR.

    Unfortunately my phone does not fit into this gimble. It does not grab it tightly and allows it to slip out too easily. If you have a case on your phone or have a thicker phone consider this and maybe try it first.

    I have a Moto G Power. It's not a thick phone, but it's just thick enough to not work in this gimbal. Too bad, it is a nice unit other than that.

    I gave it 5 stars because it's a good unit, even though it didn't work for me.

    Gave me the adjustments i needed for the mount!

    I needed to adjust the position of my Elgato ring light but my desk only allows me to mount it in one place. Using these i was able to move it exactly where i wanted it without moving the mount AND these also worked with the solid arm mount so i could keep my camera in the same position without moving everything. Great quality and super easy to add if you have any of the existing Master Mount arms from Elgato

    Strong gimbal

    I have mixed feelings about this gimbal, over all it is a good gimbal.

    One big positive is that the motors are very strong, you can turn the zoom or focus on the lens with out upsetting the gimbal.

    The flip out screen is nice, can pretty much do everything from the screen without the need for the app.

    Some of the things I don’t like.

    The thing feels heavier than it is, it’s a little awkward to hold.

    You can not customize the trigger button, maybe they will fix this in a film ware update.

    Battery life seems short compared to the competition .

    But the footage looks pretty good coming from it , that’s the most important thing, the finished production.

    It's OK, Could use consideration for non-iPhones.

    It has some wonky things about it, but seems to work pretty good. A larger phone doesn't fit well. They obviously designed & targeted iPhones. The clamp wants to fall on my volume buttons & cover the fingerprint/power button if I put it so it's centered. I haven't used it enough to get the knack of it yet. I also have not been able to get it back in it's case properly. It just will not align in a way that they elbow part isn't sticking out past the zipper seam.
