Feiyu G360 was just released, a gimbal for 360° cameras such as Nikon KeyMission 360, Samsung Gear 360 or the new Xiaomi Mijia. The design is different to most other gimbals on the market, as a counterweight is placed on the bottom of the camera. Most gimbals have a motor on the backside of the gimbal, which would be visible in a 360° video. But it also got a nice feature for conventional action cameras as it features a quick release plate. You can also mount your Smartphone with a phone bracket. in the demo video at the bottom the variety of compatible cameras is shown.
FeiYu G360 Specs
Design & Mounting Options:
On top of the gimbal there’s a quick release plate with a standard photo tripod mount (1/4″ screw). Feiyu G360 holds cameras between 100 and 300g of weight. On the bottom you can place a counterweight, metal rings, which are included. The counterweight is needed to balance the camera’s weight, but it’s not used for balancing itself. G360 still got 3 motors for 3-axis stabilization!
Feiyu G360 has a special mode for 360° cameras which limits the joystick just for panning. As far as I understood you can also use this mode to do a panoramic shot with your smartphone and the gimbal will turn 360°.
Feiyu G360 holds a 22650 Li-ion battery which allows 6 hrs operation time.
Pan / Tilt / Roll – Angle:
Tilting and Panning angle are 360°, rolling angle is 100°.
I’m currently not sure if G360 works with Feiyu’s remote controller, but you can control the gimbal via smartphone app Feiyu ON.
