5 Best Video Stabilizing Gimbals For Galaxy S9

Samsung has equipped its Galaxy S9 smartphone with a wicked awesome camera — it’s a single 12-megapixel camera, but the cameras is able to capture some insane detail. It’s even able to record video in 4K, which many smartphones even today aren’t able to do. While you can capture video in a great resolution, video still tends to turn out shaky and even wobbly. That’s just natural, and unfortunately, optical image stabilization just isn’t able to get rid of all of that shakiness. However with a little extra hardware, you can smooth out video without a hitch.

It connects up over Bluetooth, which gives you access to a bunch of different shortcuts right on the handle, including start and stop recording, shutter, zoom in or out, and a whole lot more.
