Feiyu has just announced two handheld gimbals that will step up your motion footage. The SCORP and SCORP Pro provide a durable, lightweight 3-axis handheld experience with an integrated tripod, camera control for a wide range of cameras and brands, and fast charging support, rivaling most gimbals on the market. Their lightweight, durable design makes them both perfect candidates for mobile rigging on vehicles, stabilizer body rigs, or for simple handheld operation.
The SCORP is an entry-level gimbal with several pro features that supports camera rigs up to 5.5 lb, and its resin and aluminum body make it durable while staying ultra-lightweight at only 2.6 lb. The folding design and integrated handle make the gimbal extremely easy to lift, hold, and transport, and its built-in tripod is welcome when most gimbals require a separate purchase. The SCORP makes it easy to balance your camera with its five-way sliding system, and the camera quick-release mount and plate are compatible with standard Arca-type quick-release plates. It also features a quick A/B point setting button rather than needing an app to set focus points, so you can easily adjust precise focus pulls without a pause. The buttons and scroll wheel are laid out so they don’t get in the way of your handheld experience, but they are easy to access without reaching too far.
The SCORP Pro is a more robust offering, upping the maximum load capacity to 10.6 lb to stabilize larger camera rigs, and the gimbal itself weighs 4.6 lb. The Pro model features a more modular approach, with its detachable suspension handle and the included detachable mini tripod. The extension handle connects to the gimbal using an ARRI-style rosette, so you can add your own extensions and accessories if you wish. The bottom of the gimbal also features a 3/8"-16 thread and an Arca-type base for different tripod or rig-mounting options, and you can utilize an optional 1/4"-20 bushing for more tripod choices. The Pro adds to the standard SCORP focus point buttons with its quick A/B/C 3-point button layout, allowing you to mark multiple focus or time-lapse points. Additional features include optional vertical installation for inverted/suspended shots, a standard Manfrotto-style quick-release plate, convenient button layout for easy access control, and a multifunction knob that controls and configures the gimbal while also controlling the zoom and focus simultaneously.
Both gimbals share many features that make them your go-to gimbal, including five-way sliding for ease of balance, balance position memory storage, manual and automatic motor torque adjustment, and camera control with multiple brands such as Panasonic, Canon, and Sony. They both feature five follow modes, including pan follow, pan/tilt follow, pan/tilt/roll follow, lock, and flash follow, all promising to up your production value. Both can be controlled by the Feiyu wireless app that provides gimbal configuration, a virtual joystick for remote operation, and the setup of effect modes such as panorama, time-lapse, and tracking, as well as mode switching. The bright 1.3" touchscreen also makes it easy to change settings and modes while shooting.
The gimbals are both powered using a 2500mAh battery that lasts up to 12 hours, they charge using a USB Type-C port, and they support 18W PD fast charging. Each gimbal includes a waterproof storage bag and camera control cables for popular camera brands, including Panasonic, Canon, and Sony.
