Tired of the shaky video? Frustrated because the moments you want to capture just won’t stand still? It’s a truth universally acknowledged that exciting moments are rarely obedient to the camera, so here’s a tool that will make your camera obedient to the exciting moments instead.
DJI is on the case, giving amateur photographers — that is, most of us! — the level of functional tools and advantages they customarily provide for recreational drone users: high quality help that makes your work look like that of the pros.
Here’s one spot-on tool you can try to get that stability in your video: the DJI Osmo Mobile Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer. At Amazon, it’s the #1 bestseller in Cell Phone Handheld Gimbals and Stabilizers category.
As makeuseof.com says, “a gimbal is nice to have if you’re a videographer. Having it in your hand will give you the confidence to shoot fast-moving, dynamic clips that are clear and stable.”
And if you’re not a videographer, the same applies. But then who’s not a videographer? (With all due respect to the true professionals.)
Gimbal your way to steady TikTok fame? Maybe not, but it’s unlikely your shaky video will get you there. Don’t let unsteady hands mess up what your excellent eye tells you to shoot. Gimbal up and see where it takes you.
Here’s an independent viewpoint, where the DJI Osmo Mobile is called “a great smartphone gimbal.”
