DYS Smart3 Review: 3-axis Brushless Gimbal for Gopro Camera


If you use a drone like the Cheerson Cx-20 or any other like DJI Phantom etc., with a gopro, you’ll probably notice that videos are shaky and unstable. That’s why someone invented gimbals.

With a gimbal mounted on your drones to keep your camera, your videos will be stable, without vibrations and rapid movements.

There are 1-axis gimbals, 2-axis and 3-axis. The best and more expensive one are the 3-axis, they stabilize the cam in every direction.

Handheld 3-axis gimbals are used in stabilization systems designed to give the camera operator the independence of handheld shooting without camera vibration or shake. Powered by three brushless motors, the gimbals have the ability to keep the camera level on all axes as the camera operator moves the camera. An inertial measurement unit (IMU) responds to movement and utilizes its three separate motors to stabilize the camera.

With the guidance of algorithms, the stabilizer is able to notice the difference between deliberate movement such as pans and tracking shots from unwanted shake. This allows the camera to seem as if it is floating through the air, an effect achieved by a Steadicam in the past. Not limited to handheld shooting, gimbals can be mounted to cars and other vehicles such as drones, where vibrations or other unexpected movements would make tripods or other camera mounts unacceptable.

It weights 262g and has a rechargeable battery.
