This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in February of 2019. If are an amateur filmmaker who is having trouble getting steady shots, a gimbal is what you need. They greatly reduce, or in some cases even fully eliminate, camera shaking, so your shots will rival those in professional movies. These models are specifically designed to work with DSLRs, though some are capable of accommodating small pocket cinemas, smartphones, and action cams, as well. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 18, 2019:

DSLR gimbals come in a variety of sizes and price ranges, so we wanted to make sure all kinds were represented here. Aspiring filmographers would do well with the Zhiyun Crane 3 Lab, Moza Air 2, FeiyuTech AK2000, or DJI Ronin M V3, as they all feature smooth-moving, high-torque motors and can be used to capture shots from a variety of angles. Hobbyists who want something above entry level, but can't spend an arm and a leg will appreciate the Flycam HD-3000 and Feiyu G6 Plus. If you just want something to stabilize videos for home use and don't need too many fancy features, consider the Roxant Pro or Neewer 60cm Carbon Fiber.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
