Two minutes in Northern Italy

2nd May 2016

Northern Italy with Zhiyun GoPro Gimbal

I recently posted a “what’s in my camera bag” update where I discussed this little GoPro gadget that has completely changed the way my footage looks and I’ve been asked tons of questions about it. The Zhiyun GoPro Gimbal is a very portable (thus very traveler-friendly!) three-axis motorized stabilizer – unlike a traditional Steadicam that works with counterbalance weights and is super bulky and annoying to carry, not to mention difficult to learn how to use properly. I was really keen to put it to use, so I took advantage of my trip to Northern Italy to film as much as I could and I put together this little video!

Can you see how much smoother the panning and moving shots are? Handheld footage can be very shaky and ruin videos, no matter how high resolution your camera is, so to me this is a wonderful investment that will make a world of difference in the overall quality of your footage. I find this specific gimbal great because you can attach it to different mounts, unlike most of the other ones out that that are fixed to a pole. I’m looking forward to do some bike footage!

    So neat! I’d never heard of this product before, but given that the last video I made was super shaky, it seems like just the thing I need. Oh, and Italy looks fabulous in your shots, too!

      Thanks so much! Yeah I had never heard of this thing before, and then I saw a super smooth video and asked what made it so smooth. This little think is magic!

    Fabulous footage! I love it! We take our GoPro with us everywhere, but I don’t have the steadiest hand so when I’m trying to pan it quite frequently doesn’t turn out – will look into this addition 🙂

    Awesome video. I am still not comfortable in taking videos, they’re shaky when I do it.
    Thanks. You brought back memories of Italy.

    You convinced me to buy this within the first 30 seconds of your fabulous video. Well done! Definitely need this for my adventures across Europe this summer

    This is an amazing video and makes me think I have to get this gizmo too. This comes at the perfect time as I’m going to Venice in the next few days, makes me excited to visit for the 3rd time!
