A gimbal stabilizes the tilt, pan, and roll of the camera. So if you move side to side, up and down, back and forth, the gimbal freezes the video even if you’re vibrating

If you think your optically stabilized smartphone camera is good enough to help you record pro-level (or semi-pro level) video, you can try a 3-axis gimbal stabilizer (or simply, a gimbal) can wish. A gimbal is a device that looks like a high-tech contraption but performs one important function – eliminating jerks and tremors. It works on the same principles as the gyroscope. It stabilizes the tilt, pan, and roll of the camera. So if you move side to side, up and down, back and forth, the gimbal freezes the video even if you’re vibrating.


Apart from this, you also get a small joystick to move the camera around, thanks to the motors present inside the device.

Being a video maker myself, I personally enjoy the convenience of carrying a smartphone gimbal with me. It helps me take some really smooth shots, especially when I have to pan or tilt.

Digitek 3-Axis Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer is one such device. Priced at ₹5500, it’s not cheap at all. But is it worth the money? let’s find out.

design and build quality

The Digitek 3-Axis Gimbal is built like a tank. Using a combination of metal and plastic, it secures confidently in the hand. The rubber grip has a leather-.esque. texture and is contoured such that it fits snugly in the palm. It’s heavy like most other gimbals, but the weight distribution is such that it doesn’t strain your hand after prolonged use. The front buttons and joystick are placed within reach, though the rear trigger button requires a bit of stretching.

However, the smartphone holder is very well made. After abusing it on several occasions, it’s amazing how its springs lasted.

The only major letdown, in fact, is the adjustment arm that stabilizes the smartphone’s roll axis. It requires a lot of trial and error to screw it into a position that doesn’t cause the gimbal to point in the direction of the weight of the smartphone. This problem only occurs with smartphones that are not iPhones, as it is specifically built around the iPhone 8.

Talking about the accessories that come with it, it comes with a micro-USB charging cable, a wrist-strap, mini tripod base, and a hard case to carry them all.



Getting started is easier than I expected. First, you need to download the “Gimbal Pro” app from Play Store. Then you have to turn on the gimbal by pressing the record button (the red one). A blue flashing light means you are on the right track. The following steps are straightforward, as the app instructs you on what to do to connect the gimbal to your smartphone via Bluetooth.

Once you’re sorted with that, you can open the custom camera app that lets you use the controls on the gimbal. This means there is no need to touch your screen to record a video or click a photo. You’ll need to touch the display to lock your exposure and focus, and to choose different modes. These include panorama, video, photo, hyper-lapse, and panoramic hyper-lapse.

Features work as advertised, a little better to be honest. However, control can be improved. The joystick’s sensitivity is pretty high even when you turn it all the way down in the setting. Luckily, the joystick supports analog functions, so you can take some slow pan shots by rotating it ever so slightly in the direction of your choice. It requires a little effort to master it completely.

Speaking of stabilization, almost all of my walking shots turned out to be acceptable. They appear smooth but are not overdone. The option to lock one axis of rotation is also very useful during situations in which you are moving around a lot.

By mounting it on the bundled mini tripod, the gimbal can take some pretty cool panoramic hyper-lapse. You just have to make sure that the gimbal isn’t leaning to one side or else it is likely to fall.

It has some flaws that you should beware of. It gets awkward when you try to use it at extremely steep angles, i.e. when the angle between the handle and the smartphone is less than 135-degrees. So if you’re planning on making some close-up walk-in video cutaways of small subjects like a smartphone, you’re out of luck.

Second, some smartphones tend to bend even after adjusting the roll axis—physically and through the app. I didn’t encounter this problem with the iPhone 8, but it was a bit painful using contemporary Android smartphones including the Google Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 6, and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. At times the gimbal would get completely out of control, especially with the Galaxy Note 9. This is mainly due to the weight distribution of these smartphones.


The Digitek 3-Axis Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer is a great device for anyone serious about mobile videography. You can get some really good-looking shots with it, without any flickering or flaking. Sure, it might not fit all smartphones, but if you have an iPhone, you really can’t go wrong with it.
