The Hohem smartphone gimbal is a lightweight ideal tool for beginners and more, With the use of social media and other ideas this gimbal fits the bill for most people especially newcomers to using such tech,the accompanying app you get with it makes it even easier to use and is one of the better apps out there to get started with all the tutorials on board,you also get other features in the app too which you may or may not want to use to enhance or add to your creations.

The design and build is nice and an off white colour which I like over the typical black colour we tend to see much of and the functions are easy to use too again described well in the tutorials on the app, We go through the app in the video below anyway.

You have a simple zoom button to the left and a navi key that is circular to direct the gimbal in any direction however I did find it did not tilt backwards too much compared to another model I have here but you can change the axis on the back. This is a 3 axis gimbal with four shooting modes with anti shake and face tracking, In the video I am testing a new Sony xperia L4 and you will see the difference here between handheld and using the gimbal whilst walking around and it is quite impressive for the price, Overall it is an affordable way to up your game and try something new using such technology and it has only been recent I have started using gimbals myself and they are a handy tool to have at your disposal.

The company sent us this to review and paid no compensation they are seeing this the same time as you and had no influence on my findings.
