JOBY Smart Stabilizer 3-axis smartphone gimbal for vloggers & content creators Review
Smart Stabilizer is super compact and lightweight. It has a telescopic handle that extends up to 7 inches, making it easier to perfectly frame selfies or group pics. It can also support phones in landscape and portrait mode! The gimbal buttons enable easy and quick control of axis rotation, mode selection, and your smartphone’s camera.
The dedicated Smart Stabilizer App lets you connect the gimbal to your smartphone via Bluetooth. It can even perform face and object tracking, dynamic time-lapse, and panorama shots!
JOBY Smart Stabilizer lasts up to 10 hours, and you can charge your phone through the gimbal using the included cable. Plus, it comes with a tripod, carrying bag & wrist strap – so you’re fully prepared!
Firstly I recommend reading the instruction manual before you even get it out of the box! The set up has a bit of a learning curve, but using it feels intuitive once it’s in use. I wasted around half a day before resorting to the guide. The guides are all short and easy to understand but more importantly include some very important information to help you get the most out of this device.
You need to download the free “Smart Stabilizer” App for face/object tracking. You won’t need to worry about the phone clamp pressing down on your phone buttons thanks to the clever design.
When switching on, you need to have the mini-tripod screwed in. Then place it on a flat surface so that it can recalibrate its balance. After that, you can remove the tripod.
The JOBY Smart Stabilizer is intuitive to hand movements. You can also use the joystick to get a more precise movement. There’s also a slider that can be assigned to zoom or focus, depending on your choice.
Overall, the JOBY Smart Stabilizer 3-axis smartphone gimbal is a really solid, well-featured gimbal, and I’m very pleased with it. Finally, check out our other camera reviews. Don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on social media – find us on Facebook and Twitter.
