Stabilize your video images with a gimbal

Wat is een gimbal en hoe werkt het?

Imagine: you were on an epic solo trip where you decided to capture the sunrise on a mountaintop after hours of hiking, but the combination of exhaustion and excitement resulted in a video that was more vibrant than an espresso on an empty stomach. Or that time you walked through the city, determined to vlog the ultimate city tour for your friends, but your recordings made them more dizzy than a night out. And let's not forget that attempt where you wanted to capture your dog in full action, only to realize later that your film career is doomed without help.

In all these cases, a gimbal could have transformed your videos into fantastic and smooth action moments.

What is a gimbal?

A gimbal is a device that ensures that your camera, smartphone or action cam remains super stable while you walk around or move with it. The system consists of rotating shafts that ensure that the device remains balanced. This helps to reduce jerky movements and ensures smooth and professional-looking video recording, especially during movements such as walking, running or driving.

So you don't have such a steady hand or do you want slightly smoother images? Try shooting content with a gimbal.

What do you use a gimbal for?

Gimbals are often used in the film industry, but are now also popular among hobbyists, content creators and vloggers to take their videos to the next level.

You can capture action moments with it, such as during mountain biking and skateboarding. But you can also easily take it with you on holiday or on a long trip. Think of moving shots, such as walking through the city, hiking in nature or a boat trip at sea.

A gimbal can also be a nice addition for time-lapse recordings, panoramic photography or for filming yourself.
