The BeStableCam Rider Gopro 3-Axis Steady-cam handheld gimbal allows you to use your GoPro to shoot smooth videos easily and share your life with your relatives and friends. It will quickly become one of your must-have travel items. The Rider GoPro 3-axis Handheld Gimbal is designed for the GoPro 3 or 3+ cameras. This gimbal comes pre-configured and ready to use (after some very basic assembly) for the ultimate in professional-quality stabilized video without any complex steady-cam rig. The gimbal is able to stabilize pitch, roll, and yaw axes - giving you a super stable shot. Another great feature of the handheld grip is that it includes rechargeable batteries that fit neatly inside the handle, to power the Rider GoPro 3-axis handheld gimbal. There are thumb buttons on the handle that you can use to change the operation modes and pitch angle and roll angle of the gimbal. You can set the gimbal to the "follow" mode where the pitch and yaw angles will follow the subject being filmed (in a smooth motion as you move the gimbal handle, or in "heading lock" mode where the gimbal will force the camera to point in a specific compass direction regardless of the angle changes of the gimbal handle.
