Feiyutech Vimble C review – the affordable 3 axis Gimbal for smartphones and action cameras

If you love shooting videos using your smartphone then you can use a Gimbal like the Feiyutech Vimble C and get a stable, smooth and professional output. Here is the review of Vimble C and it comes for just $127 approx Rs. 8200.

There are many 3 axis gimbals available in the markets. The Feiyutech Vimble C is the cheapest gimbal that does a really good job. Most of the 3 axis gimbal perform the same. I have tested Zhiyun Smooth C that also is a very good gimbal.

The gimbal is an external stabilizer that helps you shoot really cool smooth shots using your smartphone. These are made for specific shots wherein the cameraman is moving around while shooting. Makes no sense buying a gimbal to shoot a still subject from the same position, i.e. without moving, a tripod can as well do the job.

Performance

The best thing about the Feiyutech Vimble C is built in Bluetooth and the app that you will need to download and install to use BT features. The process is simple and you can also update the firmware via the app, however in case it fails you can also update firmware using your computer by downloading the necessary apps from Feiyutech website.

If the smartphone is tilting left or right you can balance the same using the side arm knob (check video review). The shots turned out really smooth. All of the 3 axis gimbals that I have tested have a common issue and that is a mild bouncy effect, but that is acceptable.

Feiyutech Vimble C features

You can clearly see the difference between shots without the gimbal and with the gimbal. Another good thing about the Feiyutech Vimble C is the ability to use a smartphone or a action camera. This gimbal is using latest brushless motors for precision, it also helps reduce weight and provides impressive stabilization.

The gimbal comes with a joystick for easy movements, Bluetooth button to record / stop, mode switch button on the front and left / right knob to zoom in / out. For Bluetooth function you need to use the Feiyutech app.

The app also comes with face tracking option. Once you enable that the gimbal will follow the face and track the movement, this is best for self filming. With the Feiyu ON app you can also shoot dynamic Panorama with a button the gimbal will rotate horizontally by 360 degrees.
