Performance

The gimbal is easy to use you can connect the Mijia camera with the app and any firmware update will happen via the app. Mounting and dismounting the camera from the gimbal will not be that easy, initially, but with little practice you will be able to mount with ease.

The Gimbal comes with micro USB plug that will connect with the micro USB port on the camera, so when mounting the camera you need to make sure the micro USB ports fit in perfectly, check video review.

The results are pretty impressive. There is a mild bouncy effect but that is acceptable and happens with almost all 3 axis gimbals. You get really smooth shots, plus the gimbal and the camera are pretty small and light weight, easy to carry and the 5000 mAh battery will give you a good 8 hours of backup, pretty good for full day heavy usage.

Xiaomi Mi Action Camera Handheld Gimbal

The Mi Mijia 4K mini action camera works great is good light conditions, outdoor, under sunlight etc, but the quality is not that great is extreme low light conditions.

Verdict

An excellent buy for those looking to shoot professional videos, specially long shots, follow mode, walk mode, running mode, sports, events, functions and even extreme sports. This combination – camera + gimbal is perfect for Vloggers (best vlogging gimbal / best vlogging gear / best vlogging camera) and Youtubers, do note this is not for close-up’s.

The best part is that the gimbal powers the action camera say your camera is fully charged and you use the gimbal, the gimbal will power the camera and you can use it for 8 hours after that the gimbal battery will drain, and since it was powering the camera there will still be 100% battery in the camera so you can continue using the camera without the gimbal.

What’s more carry a power bank if you shoot a lot, you can charge the gimbal with the power bank. There are 4 LED’s on the gimbal, it will give you an idea about the battery level. To charge the Mi Action camera Gimbal  you need 5V/2A power source.
