A gimbal is a device which keeps an object on a steady horizontal level, even as its support moves and tilts. Such as a ship’s compass.
Hand held videos often show unwanted evidence of movements due to shaking, walking or distractions.
Expensive gimbals have been available to professionals for a long time. Recently gimbals have become much less expensive, and available to people shooting videos on smart phones, mirrorless cameras, and DSLR’s.
The following video was shot on my iphone, without a gimbal, but about a gimbal, which I recently purchased. The video is brief, and not intended to be anything but a glimpse. To be honest, there is a bit of a learning curve with the gimbal, and I am just beginning.
I hope that it will help to improve my video shoots.
