Resumee

The Gimpro Smartphone Gimbal makes a solid impression. The result is clean, wobble-free recordings with the smartphone. Only during the endurance test with many fast movements in different directions does the gimbal have problems from time to time.

Function

To use the Gimbal, you must first download the Gimbal Pro App. Then clamp your smartphone in the holder provided and balance it as well as possible manually using the clamping wheel. If you now switch on the gimbal, your smartphone will be completely balanced.

Stabilization

The gimbal does a good job and gives you really fluid shots. Even if you move and even walk a little, there are few blurrs in the picture. With the app, you can tell the gimbal on which of the three axes the smartphone should follow your movements. The smartphone can be completely frozen and does not follow any predetermined movements. It is also possible to follow only horizontal or vertical movements. In our test, we found that the gimbal has problems with fast movements from time to time. However, these movements are rarely needed in practice.

The device is able to take pictures in almost all directions. You can hold it upright to shoot from above or down to shoot directly above the floor.

The App

The Gimbal Pro App is available in the App Store as well as in the Google Play store. No registration is required. Only a Bluetooth connection is required. The app is intuitive and easy to use. It contains many useful functions and modes. You can recalibrate the gimbal or change settings. In addition, there is a variety of shooting modes such as standard mode, self-timer, panorama, time-lapse or movement time lapse.

We have evaluated almost 30 reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 85 percent of buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are good 10 percent of the users. The average score at the time of evaluation was 4.4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 85% positive and 10% negative ratings

  • Very light
