Shooting pictures and video from a phone has gotten so much better over the years. While image quality has improved with each generation, features like optical image and video go a long way to creating compelling media.
If you’ve never considered a gimbal for your phone, you’d be wise to look into one. Not only does it take the strain off your hand, but it really helps to steady your shots. It’s also a wonderful way to stay focused on the subject and/or follow along in interesting ways.
FeiyuTech VLOG Pocket Gimbal
Online retailer Tomtop, who never has a shortage of sales or promotions, has a discount on the FeiyuTech VLOG Pocket 3-Axis Handheld Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer. Indeed, for a limited time you can use coupon code: WDFTVLOG to drop the price to just $68.
A perfect companion for would-be vloggers and social media starlets, the FeiyuTech works in portrait and landscape mode. With a wide range of tilting, panning, and rolling angles, it keeps you front or your subject front and center.
Install the accompanying app and you’ll be able to switch from photo to video, capture timelapse, overlapping images, and more.
It’s durable, but lightweight which means it goes where you go; the gimbal folds up to fit in pockets, purses, and bags. Charge it up and you’ll have 14 hours of runtime, or more than enough for your live blogging or a night out.
Insta360 Go 1080P Video Panoramic Sports Action Camera
Another way to shoot fun and interesting video is to not even think about it and instead let it capture things hands-free. Such is the case with action cameras.
Small and lightweight, these cameras can go anywhere and clip or mount in a bunch of cool ways. The Insta360 Go is a sports and camera that’s not much bigger than you thumb, but it captures 1080p HD video.
Water resistant to withstand rain, splashes, and an occasional small dunk, the GO has four basic functions (QuickCapture/Single Tap/ Double Tap/ Triple Tap), each of which can be customized to your preference.
The design is a magnetic snap-on pendant, easy clip and pivot stand, which allows you mount it anywhere. Shoot hyperlapse, slow motion, short clips, and up to eight hour videos.
