We get it - electronic "gimbal" stabilizers are cool, we even sell one of our own gimbals here - the StayblCam 3X. However, gimbals also have many limitations. The patented StayblCam remains a top choice among video enthusiasts - and here is why!
Electronic stabilizers are fragile, and prone to break. And forget about taking your gimbal out scuba diving...
Try filming this low with your electronic gimbal - without breaking your back...
Still the most affordable stabilizer in its class - the StayblCam also is way more convenient to bring along with you, compared to other "clunkier" competitors.
Although there are other video stabilizers on the market – almost all of them still have a few shortcomings in terms of what they can and cannot be used for.
Many competing stabilizers are also not that easy to operate for the average consumer. Most often with other mechanical stabilizers, users have to spend some time setting a balance point with counterweights, screws, or levers – and they are prone to problems like wind affecting balance. Electronic gimbal stabilizers have limitations with battery time, fragile design, and limited range. The StayblCam was designed from the ground up to be extremely easy to use for anyone.
The StayblCam really allows you to record videos in ways that were previously (near) impossible. Imagine filming little children, and having your smartphone look UP towards them (from the floor level) while they are walking around! Or - record your cat or dog while they're playing, and see the world from their point of view. All of this is not only possible - but EASY to do, with the StayblCam.
The StayblCam can be turned on its head upside down, and the firm friction of the rubber grip holds onto your smart phone while you record - without the need to bending down or assume awkward postures.
Likewise, thanks to the telescopic design of the StayblCam - you can pull it out to its full length, and record video up to 3 feet (1 meter) above your head! Talk about getting some cool angles of wildlife, or in large crowds. It's like having stilts - without having stilts.
