If you are a budding videographer or a seasoned professional, camera gimbals, like the CRANE 2S, might be the camera gimbal you have always dreamed of.
A camera gimbal is a device used to allow a digital camera to rotate smoothly along a given axis. Usually equipped with motors and sensors, most gimbals today are 3-axis.
These devices stabilize a camera (usually digital today) while the user tilts, pans, or rolls it to create smooth footage while they are on the move.
Videographers have also historically used dollies, jigs, and other professional video-making equipment for similar purposes. While gimbals can’t completely replace these devices, they are much more portable and are useful for on-the-go content creators.
Gimbals are great for shooting stills too from awkward angles and they are generally considered essential pieces of kit for videographers.
Gimbals work through a series of algorithms, gyroscopes, and motors, they are able to automatically correct for any unexpected jolts or bumps while filming or taking photos. Gimbal motors tend to be brushless which means they are silent when in operation — pretty handy when filming with audio.
