5 Best Video Stabilizing Gimbals For iPhone 7

One of the best things that has happened with smartphones is camera technology. Now, capturing a moment is simple as pulling out your phone, opening the Camera app, and taking a shot. No longer do you have to run to the store for a disposable camera for an upcoming event, trip or vacation — everything you need is right in your pocket, even video capabilities! Unfortunately, one of the problems that are existent with smartphone video and photo capabilities (and point and shoot cameras have this problem as well) is how shaky footage can be, even with optical image stabilization (OIS) built-in.

Luckily, there’s a fairly easy way to get around that problem — put your phone in a video stabilizing gimbal. Motors inside the gimbal will work to keep the phone stable, and thus, take video footage as smooth as you’d see in the cinema!

So if you’re ready to get your phone a video stabilizing gimbal, be sure to follow along with us below — we’ll show you the best options currently available for the iPhone 7. Here are our top picks.

DOBOT Rigiet

Firtst up, we’ve got the DOBOT Rigiet. This video stabilizing gimbal is super versatile, allowing it to work with multiple types of smartphones. It doesn’t have to be just an iPhone 7 with this one — adjust the mount to the size of the smartphone, and you’ll be able to use essentially any phone with it. It does have some neat pictures packed into the gimbal — there’s auto tracking, live streaming, slow motion, panorama, timelapse, and more than you can use with this gimbal. So if you’re ready to transform your video into something as smooth as you’d see in the movies, hit the link below!

CamKix Stabilizing Hand Grip

If you’re looking for something a little more basic, then you’ll want to check out what the CamKik Stabilizing Hand Grip has to offer. Like we said, this one is basic, so you’re not going to get any hardware shortcuts — if you want to start or stop video, you’ll have to reach for the smartphone in the mount, unfortunately. However, It does have some neat features for capturing angles — with its dual-mount capabilities, you can capture video footage from two angles at once. The CamKix can actually be used with a GoPro and almost any smartphone. CamKix even has extra mounts and accessories to go with its gimbal for broader applications, too.

DJI Osmo Mobile 2

DJI is one of the more prolific names in drones, cameras, and stabilization technology. Set your smartphone in the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 and you’ll get the smoothest video that you’ve ever been able to capture. DJI has placed a ton of shortcuts on the Osmo 2, and for good reason. With being able to access things like record video, stop video, and the shutter button right on the handle, you don’t have to ruin your smooth experience by trying to reach up and fiddle with the screen. DJI even includes a button for live streaming on the handle. Keep in mind that, since the Osmo 2 doesn’t connect up to your phone by wire, but over Bluetooth instead, the gimbal does have its won battery, and as such, has to be charged up occasionally.

Zhiyun Handheld Gimbal

Next up, we have the Zhiyun Handheld Gimbal. If you’re looking for a high quality gimbal, but don’t want to pay the high price of the DJI Osmo 2, you cannot go wrong with the Zhiyun gimbal. This one has a ton of shortcut functions for taking video, stopping video, for the shutter button, and a whole lot more. Like the Osmo 2, it does have its own battery, and therefore will have to be charged up occasionally. It connects to phones over Bluetooth, so you should get between 8 and 12 hours off of a single charge. Either way, you can get that smooth, cinema-like video that you’ve been waiting for with the Zhiyun Handheld Gimbal. Check it out at the link below.

Movo Smartphone Video Rig

The Movo Smartphone Video Rig is a nice piece of hardware as well. This is pretty simple as far as gimbals go — you put your smartphone in, start recording, and the gimbal will keep the footage pretty stable. However, it also has a dedicated microphone on the gimbal itself. This one is a massive improvement over using the iPhone 7’s stock microphone, so if your taking professional video, it’s a serious upgrade in audio quality on your viewers’ end. This one is a little cheaper than most on this list, coming in at just $55.

Verdict

If you’re looking for a way to keep your video and transitions smooth, any of these gimbals will do — but, if you want the best of the best, you cannot go wrong with the DJI Osmo 2 and all of its extra features.
