    Feiyu FY-G4S reviews

    G4S 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal for GoPro HERO4/3+/3 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 360 Range of Motion is Amazing! I purchased this gimbal to shoot video in an aerobatic plane since every other gimbal on the market has limited movement and won't work. The G4S is easy to use after getting used to the different operating modes. This is innovative technology at any price! Here is the result: https://youtu.be/oiG2WsxUOVU Video like this has never been shot in a plane. Many people have asked if I did this video in post production.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get G4 Instead and save $! The Feiyu Tech G4 is one of the best pieces of camera gear I own. It allows me to create smooth video like I do with my Glidecam 2000, however, with this, I'm up and running in a matter of seconds (no balancing) and I could hold it all day, unlike the Glidecam where anything over a couple of minutes requires the use of the very expensive vest. I did, however, return my G4 3 weeks after I purchased because I found out Feiyu Tech released the G4S. The motors are stronger, the power button was removed from the bottom and put on the handle button, now has a joystick and all three axis move in full 360 degrees. I was lucky enough to purchase it for $ at @. so I figured the $ extra (bought original G4 for $) was worth it. The motors are stronger, however, when put into mode 2 (camera follows gimbal movement), the motors do NOT react as smooth as the original G4. There is a slight delay when turning, and then the motors kick in and it moves the camera in a fast motion creating a distracting camera move. Also, when viewing video shot with it, I could see the walking motion a tad bit, something I did not experience with the G4. I tested over and over and over for two straight days. I did become better with certain hand motions and very careful movements with my legs, however, this is NOT how the G4 worked. I took it out of the box and was running with it creating very smooth video. I was able to give it to my 11 year old and they walked around the backyard and got some very good video the first time they tried it. I couldn't get over the different of the video produced and the sensitivity of the G4S vs the G4 so I returned it and am now waiting on the my old G4 again. I can't wait to get it. Please don't waste $ and buy the upgrade. It's not worth it for the bells and whistles because at the end of the day, smooth video is what you're looking for and the G4 does an amazing job!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not perform as expected I was excited to get my hands on this gimbal but it did not live up to the hype. Maybe I got a bad copy. The gimbal was smooth at times but was also jerky. The gimbal tended to float to the left. Sometimes the motors seemed to make a grinding noise. Other times the unit would vibrate uncontrollably. I performed the gimbals reset features but the problems still persisted. The motors in these gimbals just seem to fragile. Needless to say, I returned my gimbal and will not purchase another one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of this price range The G4 is great at stabilizing GoPro video so long as you keep your tilt to a minimum. Go too far and the motors will struggle, giving a shake to the video. Love that the batteries in the gimbal charge the GoPro, but wish I could use a bacpac. It will accept an external monitor, but I feel that defeats the purpose of a handheld gimbal. In this price range, it would be tough to find a better gimbal in terms of build quality. Be warned, you can not use an external mic with this gimbal, and you have no access to the USB ports while attached to the gimbal. What you do have is smooth video in an easy to carry setup.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Worked well for a short period of time (3 days) and then started making all sorts of noise and vibrating. It leans to one side and the instructions to re-calibrate are hideous. Not happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definite Difference in Video Quality Recently purchased/ used the G4S 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal and immediately noticed a definite quality upgrade to my videos. Much smoother presentation. Have not used product enough to comment on battery life. Uses two rechargeable batteries. Comes with four batteries so you have a spare set/pair but I will likely purchase another set. Gimbal is easy to use. Camera downloads/charging is simple and efficient without camera removal by attaching cables to the two ports available on the gimbal. I appreciate the tripod screw on the handle. I am satisfied with the product and would recommend its purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck Great 360 gimbal. I actually first bought the lanparte la3d, but returned it because the quality is just as good as the Feiyu Tech. The Feiyu Tech is much lighter and has 360 movement (note: it's not quite 360 if you have a lens protector, so be careful) I did LOTS of homework for gimbals for the GoPro... This is the right one
