  • Hey guys! This is my DIY steadicam.

  • You've probably seen it on my channel. I've been using it for about two years now

  • and it works really well. I've been using it for work and my hobbies.

  • Stuff like that. But recently I bought a three axis gimbal.

  • I kind of splurged on it. But I wanted to do this video to give you

  • the pros and cons of the steadicam and the gimbal and kind of tell you my thoughts on

  • each and then I'm going to give you some sample footage comparing the same shots with the

  • steadicam and the gimbal. So if you're not familiar with the steadicam,

  • it uses gravity and weights and balance to keep the camera up top and keep it steady.

  • That's the whole point behind these two things is to stabilize your video.

  • The gimbal has 3 motors that keep the camera level with the horizon.

  • I'll turn it on for you.... So however you move, it will keep the camera

  • pointing straight forward. So the main reason that I'm thinking about

  • switching to the gimbal is wind. Wind effects the steadicam quite a bit and

  • when I'm working, if it's windy, it's just a big pain and sometimes I actually have to

  • come back to the location to get the shots that I need.

  • That's really time consuming and that's the big reason that I'm thinking about switching.

  • The second reason is that I want to run filters on the GoPro.

  • You can run filters with the steadicam but you have to balance it with the filters on

  • and then if you take the filter off, it will be unbalanced.

  • With the gimbal, it doesn't care about the weight.

  • So you can put it on, take it off, and it really doesn't care.

  • Some of the other big pros and cons are: The steadicam is much cheaper.

  • You can build these and buy them for relatively in expensive these days.

  • The gimbals run from $250 to $350 or $400 so their really expensive in my opinion.

  • The steadicam, some people don't realize but they can be difficult to balance.

  • A lot of the questions that I get on my DIY how-to build thread is how do I balance this

  • thing and that's one of the hard parts. And the pro of the gimbal are that you just

  • attach your camera and power it up and it's done.

  • You don't have to balance it at all. Lastly I would say that a con for the steadicam

  • is that they're just harder to use. You've got to really concentrate and keep

  • very steady. You still need to concentrate and keep steady

  • with the gimbal but it's much more forgiving and easier to use.

  • Over-all it may be a good idea to start out with a steadicam and get the feel of filming

  • and it will show you where you need to be steady and how to do that.

  • And then maybe progress to the gimbal fi you're sure you're going to be shooting a lot of

  • video with the GoPro. This particular gimbal is made by Zhyiun Tech.

  • It's called the Z-1 Pround or Z one Pro. I'm not sure how it got that name but I decided

  • on this one because it's motors are more powerful than ones made by Feiyu or companies like

  • that. So it's supposed to just hold the camera steadier

  • with camera or wind so one reason I wanted to go with that.

  • One warning: It looks to me like all of these gimbals are made overseas so they may have

  • questionable support and customer service. Just something to be aware of.

  • This seems to be good quality but you just don't really know.

  • Anyway, we're going to roll right into the sample footage and let you see what these

  • things can do. Now when I filmed these scenes I tried to

  • be as smooth as possible with both the gimbal and the steadicam to give the best results.

  • There are times in some of these scenes where the gimbal and the steadicam don't look that

  • much different. I think that's especially when there's distracting

  • scenery or a busy background. But sometimes they look very similar to each

  • other. Here you can see a little bit of wobble in

  • the steadicam footage when you look at the vertical fence posts.

  • The gimbal does not have that wobble. If you didn't have the gimbal footage to compare

  • it to, you would probably think the steadicam is pretty stable.

  • These clips weren't shot at the exact same time because you can't operate both stabilizers

  • correctly at the same time. You really need to hands to operate each one.

  • In this clip watch the edges of the screen compared to the vertical posts and you can

  • kind of see where the movement is. It's a lot more pronounced in this clip since

  • you've got all of the straight lines to compare to.

  • Both stabilizers have a small amount of up and down bob to them but that's minimized

  • by holding them steady with two hands and walking as smoothly as you can.

  • Here's just a little footage of me running with the gimbal.

  • In my opinion it's pretty impressive. It's steady and just pretty amazing for somebody

  • who's running at a medium pace. But anyway, thank you guys for watching.

  • If you have any questions, please let me know and if you like my videos, please consider

  • subscribing.
