Zhiyun-Tech ZYRM Overview

  • 1Description

The Zhiyun-Tech Rider-M is a mini 3-axis gimbal stabilizer for GoPro cameras. Highly compact and featuring a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole on the bottom, the Rider-M is designed to be used mounted on various support accessories, such as suction cups.

The Rider-M supports remote operation using an optional remote control or an iOS/Android app available from Zhiyun-Tech. So, for example, you can have it mounted on a suction cup that's attached to a moving vehicle and control it wirelessly from your phone, which it connects to via built-in Bluetooth, or from the optional remote control. The remote control unit works from up to approximately 30 ft away when there's no interference.

When used manually, you can set the Rider-M to a desired static angle by simply adjusting it into that angle with your hand and holding that position for a second until the angle is locked in. Additionally, a double-stopper design for the pan axis allows for ±320° pan movement and panoramic capture.

The Rider-M uses brushless servo motors that operate at 4000 Hz. The Rider-M also offers a 3.5mm video output that allows you to connect a viewing device to monitor your images in real-time. This stabilizer comes with four batteries and accepts two at a time that provide approximately three hours of runtime per the pair.

    Zhiyun-Tech ZYRM Reviews

    Rider-M 3-Axis Mini Portable Stabilizer for GoPro is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! For years I wanted something to take the jarring out of my GoPro videos. Before the Rider-M, most of my hiking footage was unwatchable. I've only had the Rider-M out twice since I got it, but the video is very smooth! The only thing I need to figure out is that there is a little slow up and down motion while hiking. I wear the mount on a chest strap, and I think it has to do with me leaning forward as I step, then upright on the next step. The up and down is smooth and not jarring at all, just a bit strange looking. On the last hike with the Rider-M, I fell backwards while hiking down some steep terrain. The video is so smooth through the fall, you cannot even tell that I fell! The batteries last a very long time, one set of batteries outlasted 3 sets of GoPro batteries. The mount is very simple to use, just turn it on and use it. I haven't even calibrated it. It's also easy to pair with my Android phone. Can't wait to try it out on my mountain bike and road bike!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 3 months. Power button failed after 3 months. I can turn it on, but it takes about 5 minutes of fiddling with the power button. Once it turns on it will occasionally loose 1 axis causing the camera to point down for a second and then it recovers. I the process of sending it back for warranty, so we will see how this company handles something like this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing difference! When I first attached this to my Chesty I couldn't get the Chesty cinched down enough to keep this as stable as I would have liked. I thought maybe it would make the footage better, but not as good as some of the video's I've seen on YouTube...well I was wrong. Pretty close to no movement (bouncing) with this even with my Chesty not super tight. Totally worth it if you're looking for completely steady footage of mountain biking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gimbal! Extremely quiet-I could not hear any motor noise on video. Made a HUGE difference with motorcycle footage and a big difference when walking. Quality build- responsive customer service. Batteries last a long time and you get an extra set. App works great to control gimbal and remote control (sold separately) works great too. Highly recommend this product!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This stabilizer is NOT stable! The Zhiyun-Tech Rider-M I purchased had an intermittent "twitch" in the horizontal axis that made it impossible to capture usable footage. In addition, the mount for the GoPro is very flimsy -- only two tiny screws hold the camera within the thin framing mount. I'm returning the rig and researching other more robust options.
