What is a Gimbal Stabilizer
A gimbal is a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis. A set of three gimbals, one mounted on the other with orthogonal pivot axes, may be used to allow an object mounted on the innermost gimbal to remain independent of the rotation of its support : Wikipedia
Gimbal is an excellent tool that helps you get silky-smooth, handheld videos. You can get excellent videos without “camera shake”. So, when you use Gimbal for your GoPro, it comes with excellent sophisticated algorithms that can differentiate between your hand movement and any accidental movement or a sudden jerk while panning or tracking any subject. This helps the camera to stay absolutely steady resulting in buttery smooth videos.
