Actioncam Gimbal

With the use of an Actioncam Gimbal you can upgrade any action camera. Especially if you want to use it for normal filming, you will notice that it is not so easy to hold the small camera still.

If you own or are looking to buy a higher-priced camera with an optical image stabilizer, you’ll probably be fine without a gimbal in most cases if you screw the camera onto a handgrip. But even here you will achieve even better results with a gimbal. Especially when you move forward with the camera, the results with gimbal are impressive.

What is an Actioncam Gimbal?

A gimbal is nothing new in terms of the technology behind it. The word gimbal comes from the English and means “gimbal suspension”. An example of this would be a single track bicycle or motorcycle trailer. This has two degrees of freedom, with which it can follow the bike in the track and compensate for differences in height.

Another example would be a gyro compass. The gyro axis forms a right angle with the inner gimbal axis. The gimbal suspension allows the gyro to maintain its direction in space when the vehicle changes direction. The initial direction of the vehicle can be read at any time from the direction of the gyro axis.

Gimbals have three axes to compensate for all movements. In the small gimbals most commonly used for action cams, the rotary axes have active drives, each with a brushless motor. At this compact design, this is also necessary to overcome the mass inertia fast enough.

Hovering tripod and steadycam

Alternatively to the electrically driven gimbals there are also the floating tripods or steadycams. These work in a purely physical way with counterweights. Due to their design and size, they are mostly used for large film or SLR cameras. For action cams, they are rather not recommended for the reasons mentioned above.

Wearable Actioncam Gimbal

Another gimbal variant, are the wearable gimbals. Unlike the gimbals you mainly hold in your hand, the wearable gimbals can also be mounted on a helmet or handlebars, for example. This of course increases the application possibilities enormously.

As already mentioned in the beginning, you can upgrade every actioncam with a gimbal. If you have bought a cheaper action camera that only has electronic image stabilization, you will especially benefit from a gimbal.
In any case, a gimbal is an absolutely recommendable accessory for every actioncam.
