What to consider when buying a gimbal for GoPro?

If you are in the market for a GoPro stabilizer it is vital to choose whether you want a motorized or a non-motorized stabilizer. Usually, motorized stabilizers come with a higher cost but their motors offer huge advantages. They are very easy to set up and balance so we would advise you to go for a motorized stabilizer also known as gimbal for your GoPro. All models will let to shoot smooth but some of the will allow you to tilt up or down for various angles. Some units are larger in size which offer greater handling but all in all the heavier weight might be a problem if you want to handhold the camera for longer periods of time.

It is advisable to pick a lightweight yet durable gimbal that will help you hold the camera as long as you can while automatically eliminating camera shake and unnecessary movement. Make sure your GoPro fits in the gimbal perfectly as some gimbals support specific GoPro models due to their differences in size. Generally, an aluminum body will make the gimbal sturdy enough while keeping the weight down. It would be nice to have a protective bag for the gimbal when transporting your gear to different locations and also have some space for extra batteries you might need during the day of shooting.

Most gimbals offer various functions that coming in handy like time-lapse mode which is something to consider especially if you have access to great landscape and it’s something you find interest in. Most offer simple and easy menus to choose between functions but you can also have a look at various guides online that highlight the menus specifically as you want to have access to the main functions of the gimbal as quick as possible. Also, keep in mind the gimbal need to use batteries in order to keep the motors running. Most gimbal batteries will be able to run for around 4 hours for you may need to have 1-2 more as a backup if you want to be safe for a long day of shooting but still, 4 hours running life plenty for most occasions.
