Ask any photographer and they will agree – nothing beats the high of capturing life right as it happens! From your daughter’s first steps to your parent’s fiftieth wedding anniversary, you rely on photography equipment to record and preserve these precious moments. Aside from the camera itself, what a photographer on the move depends on is the gimbal. It needs to be nimble enough to grab every single second of the action.
Action camera manufacturer, SJCAM, recognized this need for a strong yet adaptable grip and launched the new Gimbal 2. This latest edition of the SJCAM Gimbal comes with brushless motors as well as 3 axis stabilization for judder-free filming. Unlike other gimbals, the improved SJCAM Gimbal 2 can perform the following functions:
- Basic Follow Mode – This default function provides the user with a smooth horizontal-only rotation. It rotates in the same direction as the Gimbal handle.
- Lock Mode – This function keeps the gimbal locked in a certain direction. The user can still change the direction, even pan and tilt – all just using the joystick.
- Free Follow Mode – This function enables the gimbal to follow whichever direction the handle is pointing, even up or down.
- Selfie Angle – All it takes is two taps of the mode button twice. Presto! The camera direction is now set to the ideal Selfie-ready angle.
In addition to SJCAM models like the SJ8 Pro, SJ8 Air, and SJ8 Plus, the Gimbal 2 is fully compatible with other popular action camera brands. This variety includes Sony RXO, GoPro Hero, and YI Cam.
Professional Grade Film-making
Shaky videos are now a thing of the past with SJCAM Gimbal 2’s brushless motors feature. The 3 axis stabilisation results in a greater range of motion – 320° tilting, 320° rolling and 640° panning- while the third motor lessens any vibrations. Vloggers no longer have to depend on others to create content- the Selfie Angle gives them the freedom to capture any moment within seconds.
The Gimbal 2 runs 6 hours on a single charge while the 4 convenient LED lights indicate how much power is remaining. Are you worried about your camera losing its charge? Gain up to 90 minutes of recording time by connecting a cable from the Gimbal 2 to the mounted camera. Need to operate the Gimbal 2 from a distance? Just download the SJCAM Zone app on a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone and begin recording.
