Digital Camera World Verdict

This compact, lightweight and durable gimbal will have you panning, tilting and tracking your subjects like a Hollywood camera operator. Using your smartphone’s front-facing camera and the free Feiyu ON app, you can make the gimbal track your movement as you walk and talk and trigger the recording with a hand gesture. Some of the app’s panning timelapse features didn’t perform as well as we hoped but all in all this is an effective budget smartphone gimbal.

The FeiyuTech Vimble 3 is a new arrival in the increasingly crowded smartphone gimbal market. Unlike the Zhiyun Crane M2S gimbal, the Vimble 3 doesn’t attempt to appeal to mirrorless and DSLR owners – it is aimed purely at the smartphone user.
