In this constantly updated guide, we collect the best iPhone gimbal currently available on the market. Whether for leisure and entertainment or to experiment with low-budget equipment, a gimbal is essential for stabilizing shooting or time-lapse motion with maximum precision.
Now it is appropriate to look more closely at the products selected by us as the best iPhone gimbal.
DJI Osmo Mobile 2[amazon box=”B078XJSCYG” /]
DJI, a leader in the field of drones, proposes a complete solution not only for the quality of the materials but also for the interaction with the app that allows getting the most out of it. Specifically, his technical sheet:
- Dimensions: 295 × 113 × 72 mm
- Weight: 485g
- Consumption: 1.2W
- Control range: horizontal rotation +/- 160 °, inclination +/- 155 °
- Mechanical range: horizontal rotation +/- 170 °, inclination +/- 170 °, roll: from -90 ° to + 70 °
- Control speed: 120 ° / s
- Compatible smartphone width: 58.6 – 85 mm
- Compatible smartphone thickness: ≤8.9 mm
- Maximum capacity: 202g
- Battery: 2600mAh
- Battery life: 15h and recharge in about 2h
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0 low energy
There are joysticks on the gimbal and buttons to start shooting or video recording, change modes or zoom. In particular, these last operations are available only if you associate the gimbal with the DJI GO app, available for both iOS and Android. Although the quality of the footage is unlikely to be comparable to the native camera, there are interesting features like live streaming on YouTube, face tracking, hyper-lapse and time-lapse. You can also buy it from Bhphotovideo.com.
FeiyuTech SPG2[amazon box=”B07GS21M5Z” /]
Probably the best gimbal for iPhone currently available on the market for value for money. It is a 3-axis mechanical stabilizer with a battery life over 14h. Intuitiveness, ease of use and an app full of modes, options and settings encourage you to buy this product. You can also buy it from Bhphotovideo.com.
YI Phone Gimbal[amazon box=”B01CW4EFM0″ /]
YI Phone Gimbal is a respectable product at a fairly low price. However, this is not currently the best available on the market. If on one hand it pleasantly surprises for stabilization, materials, and battery, on the other it disappoints for the interaction with the app for Android and iOS. The latter would be revised or redone. It lacks important options available for the competition instead. Hyper lapse, time-lapse motion is impossible.
Zhiyun Smooth 4[amazon box=”B07BHCC3BV” /]
It is the last of Zhiyun, a product with excellent quality and an extraordinarily competitive price. Specifically, its technical specifications:
- Dimensions: 123 x 105 x 328 mm
- Weight: 547g
- Mechanical range: tilt and roll 240 °, pan 300 °
- Maximum capacity: maximum 210g, minimum 75g
- Duration and recharge: 12h and 3h
- Battery: 2000mAh
A product of impeccable quality in stabilization when satisfactory in the use of the application. The latter available for both iPhone and Android allows access to multiple options with multiple exposures, long exposure, object tracking, time-lapse and time-lapse motion. The numerous buttons are certainly important, through which it is possible, together with the app, to access the functions as well as to start shooting and recording. You can also buy it from Bhphotovideo.com.
Zhiyun Smooth Q[amazon box=”B072SSCYPM” /]
Zhiyun Smooth Q wants to bring the features and possibilities of the Smooth 4 into a decidedly smaller and more comfortable body. It is aimed at the less demanding that we find it in its technical specifications:
- Dimensions: 118 x 105 x 285 mm
- Weight: 440 g
- Mechanical range: tilt and roll 320 °, pan 360 °
- Maximum capacity: maximum 210g, minimum 75g
- Duration and recharge: 12h and 2.5h
- Battery: 1500mAh
The application allows all the operations available for Smooth 4 and the small differences between the two products make the choice very difficult. You can also buy it from Bhphotovideo.com.
Zhiyun Smooth 3[amazon box=”B0796RSTYW” /]
A predecessor of the Smooth 4, the Zhiyun Smooth 3 still resists as one of the best iPhone gimbals and not only. The price is higher than its successor and could certainly discourage its purchase. Technical specifications:
- Stabilization: 3 axes
- Tilt radius: 320 °
- Rolling radius: 320 °
- Overview: 360 °
- Supported weight: 75 to 260g
- Battery life: 8/14 hours
- Charging output: 5V – 1A
