The S3 Gimbal
Our newest Gimbal is the S3, a simplified solution for those who want to plug in and go. No App required, so this one is for those who use a Smartphone no larger than a 6” screen as their main photography and videography tool.
One of the key benefits of the S3 is your choice of shooting in three pan modes - Pan, Pitch and Roll. It allows you to capture those sweeping, smooth motions in a range of different angles. It also features 3 Axis Stabilisation, One-Key Realign to get your camera facing back to the front, has 5 hours battery time and it's lightweight!
The XS3 Gimbal
The XS3 for those who want a few more options at their fingertips. It's compatible with Action Cams and Smartphones and even has its own App! The App gives you capabilities like Face and Object Tracking, Zoom, Auto Panoramic Shoot, Time Lapse, Slow Motion AND Scene effects! As if that's not cool enough, it has an inbuilt power bank that also charges your phone, so you can get 12 hours of solid shooting time.
