Feiyu FEGMG3 overview

  • 1Description

The Feiyu G3 Ultra 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal allows you to capture stabilized, free-floating shots with your GoPro HERO3 or HERO3+. It is held and operated using a single hand and features three different operating modes for increased creative possibilities. You can choose to lock the camera in place along all three axes (pan, tilt, and roll), or select modes where the camera will smoothly follow as you pan and tilt the handle. Switching between modes is done using a single LED push-button on the handle, which flashes to indicate the mode selected. The motorized 3-axis gimbal is powered using three rechargeable batteries, which slot into the handle. A battery indicator light on the device lets you know when it's time to recharge the batteries using the included charger.

Modes
Pan Following Mode: Locks tilt and roll axes; camera smoothly pans to follow the direction of the handle
Tilt and Pan Following Mode: Locks roll axis; camera smoothly follows the pan and tilt motion of the handle
All Axis Lock: Locks the pan, tilt, and roll axes of the camera in the position it is in when mode is activated

Pan: 300°
Tilt: 300°

    Feiyu FEGMG3 reviews

    G3 Ultra 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal for GoPro HERO3/3+ is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhanced the quality of my GoPro footage This gimbal is small, lightweight, and (surprisingly) very well-built. I used it every day for a month, as I backpacked throughout Europe and Japan. I constantly threw the gimbal (with my GoPro attached) in my Lowepro Photo Hatchback 16L AW (very small bag) without a problem. It's not water (or weather) proof, and you cannot use this gimbal with your water encasing on your GoPro. You shouldn't expect this from any gimbal, really, but considering that the GoPro is an action cam, it's important to note this to potential buyers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more shaking. I was looking for a handheld gimbal for my GoPros. This one is perfect. Having used others, including DIY for my hexacopter, I can say that this one have all you can need: sturdy construction, quick boot up, several work modes (follow w/ tilt lock, full follow or full lock) and the all necessary hardware for upgrades are included in the box. I'm currently using it with a GoPro 4 silver and it even let's you see 50-60% of the display, so framing is very easy!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea/price, poor implementation This gimbal introduces, on its own, what it is supposed to prevent. Locking in 3 axis mode and holding the grip without moving, the camera will slowly start rotating to the left (counter clockwise as seen from the top). In 60 sec. it will move 90 degrees from it's start point. This Chineese company DID NOT get a native English speaking person to write any instructions, warranty, web pages, etc. so often it is difficult/impossible to determine what they are trying to convey. Reading the update instuctions will direct the user to install USB drivers, determine COM port# and baud rate, so the update can be done, so you had better know how to figure that. That's only if you can figure out which of the two USB cables you are supposed to use. I'm normally comfortable in updating firmware, but hesitate with this one. I could end up with a useless item that I now have to correct by dealing with a company in China. View as many utube vids as you can, paying attention to those owners who have had problems. I really wish I had not purchased this item. It really is not intended for the U.S. market. It does exactly what it was designed to prevent...camera stability.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to love this product... After watching many youtube videos regarding 3 axis handheld gimbals for the GoPro Hero 4 I settled on the Feiyu G3, it seemed to be of higher quality than some of the others out there, but alas despite coming with a Quality Approved sticker, it had a bad motor on the Pitch axis right out of the box. In desperation I updated the firmware but to no effect. I had to contact B&H service department but struck out again when they had no replacements for the G3 model available. There is a newer G4 model but it is nearly $ more.I was however, completely satisfied with the B&H service department, they were more than apologetic and quickly set up a RMA including emailing me a Prepaid Return Shipping label. I could not ask for better from B&H and will continue to buy from them whenever possible.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fried Two of my computer logic boards and power supplies Plugged this thing in with usb to update firmware and it fried an brand new iMac 27'. Didn't believe it myself so foolishly tried again with a Mac Pro-same thing-logic boards and power supply toast. Sent this thing back to B&H. Maybe I got a defective unit but seriously... company should know what can happen. Advice, don't plug it in to update firmware if you buy one

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a believer (works with Hero4 Black) This is the best investment I've made since I've committed to Hero platform. I previously tried a cheap Stabilizer which will still have its uses but I will be using this exclusively with all of my GoPros. Granted, I've only used it for one weekend but after reviewing the encoded footage (from Studio imported in 10-bit 4k Cineform into FCPX) I could not see any image distortion on my full res monitor. Some of these shots included running, tracking shots of motion so this is quite a testament to the power of this device. Thanks to B&H, I got quite a deal on this model (which works just fine with a 4 Black with ND filter) so that for less than half the cost of the GoPro, the capabilities of the camera are vastly improved. The one limitation of this device (wanted to remove half-star but not possible) is there is some difficulty in panning due to the lack of yaw movement, so while it is a 3 axis gimbal, you do lose out on some of the horizontal motion.
