Zhiyun Weebill 2 review

The Zhiyun Weebill 2 is a gimbal with a difference. It turns out a flip-out touchscreen makes a gimbal easier to use!

Digital Camera World Verdict

It might be noticeably heavier than the Weebill-S but the Zhiyun Weebill 2 is better built, has improved handling (for right-handed users) and its vari-angle touchscreen makes it easier to use. It’s also very good at stabilising a camera so you get super-smooth footage even if you’re not the lightest on your feet and you don’t have the best gimbal-handling skills.
