A 60 second snapshot of 5 gimbal stabilizer shots I use in my shoots. All visuals this time (I talk too much in my other videos lol), detailed tips below.

1. ORBIT – Rotate around a point of interest, keep panning and keeping the subject in the center of frame for best effect.

2. CRANE – In this example start low and raise up high. A tip is to tilt down slightly as you crane up to keep the subject centered.

3. SLIDER – Put the gimbal in a non follow mode (press the thumb stick once. This can be tricky to get it right as you need to compensate the forward back distance when going left to right. Pro tip is to film in a high frame rate and slow down and add warp stabilizer and just use the middle of your shot.

4. DOLLY – Dolly or track in or out or left or right it’s the most simple move great when you have lots of action passing by you on the left and right of frame.

5. TILT – A move that is used a lot less as the frame is tilted but in the right situation you can get some really mind bending shots and add a nice touch.

The Zhiyun Crane has been one of my favorite investments and made a big difference for my video productions. A highly recommended professional tool. Hopefully there was some gimbal movements that you thought you could apply to your next shoot.
