No Batteries

Had this think for a couple of years and the battery died. Guess what? You can't find the batteries anywhere. It takes a 22650 which is no longer made. Not B&H's fault.

Using with a GP7 Black. Balances fine. Super easy to set up and get started. Splash resistance is a big, big plus. Right now they are a bargain - but I am afraid it's because they will be discontinued soon. The app works great - soooo much easier and reliable than DJI. And you don't really NEED the app for it to function - it really is a stand alone unit. Using it on the end of a 12 foot boom pole for B roll stuff and it's working out really well. While it can tilt and pan 360 degrees, there are a few areas where it doesn't quite have the articulation or range of movement for it to follow exactly what you want. This is especially true if the handle is being held horizontal (more of an issue when on the end of a boom pole, but with a bit of practice I have come up with some easy field work-arounds). Keep it vertical and it will do pretty much everything you ask of it. Battery seems to last forever - getting probably more than 8 hours total run time. Small, lightweight, works without fuss, easy to travel with, seems well built. Get one at the sale price before they are gone (or before you blow all your $$$ on the upcoming GP8, which probably isn't going to fit in any action cam gimbals currently on the market...). my second Feiyutech gimbal. I'm impressed with them so far and consider them a real alternative to DJI.!

Worst Mount Ever!

By Brian

This mounts is awful. Why would they not take advantage of the standard GoPro mount is beyond me. The time it takes to get your camera in and out of this mount is ridiculous. This thing lays on the shelf because it is too much of a pain to take the camera out of its standard mount case and try to finagle it into this mount. Poor Design.

Fits my GoPro 7 perfectly. Makes handheld fun as you don't get dizzy watching a movie clip going up, down and every direction you don't want to record. Just get one...

Asked by: Liez
Yes, the GoPro Hero 8 will fit this camera mount on the gimbal. However, the camera controls may not work since it's not listed under compatible GoPros.

question

Can the gimbal charge the Gopro?
Asked by: Patrice O.
Yes. The gimbal includes a set of really short micro-USB to USB-C or Mini-USB cables specifically to allow the camera to be plugged in to the gimbal allowing the camera to charge from the gimbals battery while it is powered on. This will compromise the IPX rating of the GoPro. Also, on the Hero5 the USB port is located behind a hinged port cover, which would remain open, possibly risking being bumped and damaged. The gimbal operations are not obstructed by the USB cable or open port cover.

I just got my G5 and it works satisfactorly except for audio interference from its motors on the GoPro. It sounds like running water and is present about 90% of the time. Does anyone have a fix suggestion?
Asked by: Steve
Outside of doing MOS shots or using and external mic, there is not much that can be with the sound of the gimbals motors.

question

What is the exact weight of this gimbal? (specify with or with out batteries)
Asked by: comm c.
This gimbal weighs 271 grams without the battery. We do not have the weight of the battery listed, however the battery it uses is very small and will not make a major difference, it should only add 20 grams or so.
