Why should I use a Gimbal for my video?
The reasons for using a Gimbal are very simple. Whenever you are trying to catch that perfect shot you want to make sure it is taken at the angle you want and is stable enough to catch a clear picture. In reality, no one has a steady enough hand to get the perfect clarity 100% of the time. The Gimbal will stabilize the camera being used and also offer a wide range of angles that can improve the quality of the photo or video. This is reason enough to use a Gimbal.
How does a Gimbal work?
- The primary function of a gimbal is to mechanically isolate the movement of the person (or vehicle) from the camera, to eliminate shaking video footage. Different types of gimbals achieve this in different ways.There are those that are motorized and those that are not. Now there are several differences between these types of Gimbals, cost being one of them. However, the level of control is also different.
- When using a motorized Gimbal all that needs to be done is to set it where you want it and then start filming. This is great if you intend to get some fast moving shots, like filming a certain type of racing event. With the motorized Gimbal you can get it set in the position needed and mount it to a wagon or another type of mobility, then all that is left to be done is to take your shots.
- In the case of non-motorized Gimbals, they do have one major advantage over the motorized ones, there is a wider level of minute control. With a non-motorized one, you can adjust the angle of the camera and deviate from a set angle without running the risk of losing the shot. The motorized counterpart cannot deviate in this area like the non-motorized Gimbal.
- Each has advantages and disadvantages, the best thing you can do is to consider what kind of shots you are trying to get. Again, this is just a general overview of two types of Gimbals that encompass a wide range of different products.
Gimbal for action sports?
A Gimbal is a great tool to have when trying to film sports that have a lot of fast moving action. Here's an example that will give you an idea of why this is a great tool. Say that you were going to go windsurfing with friends and wanted to video the fun. Well, having a Gimbal would ensure that you got a great video at any angle. Your friends could hold the Gimbal with your camera mounted on it and video your take off and landing. Then after the ride is over you could relive the fun through the video and share it online. Keeping a camera steady and at the perfect angle during an exciting time is next to impossible so using the Gimbal can enable you to get a clear, steady shot that you will be proud to have.
