Stabilization gimbals are still comparatively new, but they are rapidly becoming regular players on motion pictures, TV shows and commercials. One of the main accessories for a handheld stabilization gimbal is a wireless remote follow focus system that will keep focus definite without touching the gimbal.
Gimbals for iPhone and Android phones come in a 2-axis or 3-axis version, with a 3-axis gimbal offering the best stabilized video. ... Even steady hands will still produce shaky or blurred video, which is why a phone gimbal is useful.
Without the app, you can use the joystick to control the gimbal, as well as the trigger on the back for locking the gimbal's angle or setting the gimbal's "home." The record button will work in Apple's Camera app and FiLMiC Pro, in addition to the landscape/portrait quick switching and the "sleep" mode.
The Osmo Mobile 2 weighs 485g while the Osmo Mobile 3 weighs just 405g. ... The main design difference between the two gimbals is the Osmo Mobile 3's fold-down functionality which makes the unit much easier to store and transport. The Osmo Mobile 3 is DJI's first foldable gimbal.
The Zhiyun Crane weighs in at 950g (2.09lb) and can carry payloads of up to 1200g (2.64lb). I tested the Crane with several different lenses on a Sony a7S, the heaviest being the Tokina 11-16mm (Nikon mount) with a NOVOFLEX NIK/NEX adapter.
