There are quite a few options available if you’re in the market for a smartphone gimbal. DJI makes some great ones but they cost more than $500 and most of us are not willing to spend that much on a gimbal that we’re only going to use sparingly. If you’re one of those customers then you might want to check out the new gimbal that has been launched by Mijia, a sub-brand owned by Chinese electronics behemoth Xiaomi. The company and its sub-brands seemingly make everything under the sun so it’s no surprise that an affordable gimbal has now been launched.
Mijia’s new smartphone gimbal is capable of accommodating handsets that are up to 86mm wide and up to 200g in weight, so most modern smartphones will work just fine. It also has a 5,000mAh battery so it can keep them topped up with 5V/1.5A power. If the gimbal’s battery is not used to charge a phone, it can last for up to 16 hours.
The gimbal provides 3-axis stabilization to allow for smoother video capture. The companion app can be used for auto tracking or capturing the full 360-degree video. It can also help with time-lapse photography.
The gimbal has a standard 1/4 inch screw at the bottom so it can easily be screwed on a tripod or any other mount. Mijia is going to start selling this gimbal in China from June 16th for about $100.
