The Go Pro camera is an amazing little camera that can let you get high quality footage with a very small and easily maneuvered camera. While it was primarily created so people who wanted to take action footage or create a video of extreme sports from the perspective of the person performing the extreme sport, it is now used by a lot of people to create a number of different types of videos now.
However, because of the initial design purpose for the Go Pro, it does not have great stability in its shots and videos. It can be very easy to move from a shot that looks really good to one that is shaking and has become distorted. This is why a GoPro gimbal stabilizer is necessary for a good video to be made consistently.
The gimbal stabilizers come in various shapes, sizes, and designs. Each of them have been made for different purposes and are useful with different videography styles and different used of the Go Pro. If you are unsure about what type of stabilizer you should get then you should think about your own style of making videos and what skill level you are on and what your needs are. There are a number of things you might want to consider before you make the choice of which gimbal stabilizer you will want. One of the things you should definitely consider before making a choice is the weight of your camera. Getting a gimbal stabilizer that cannot handle the weight of your camera makes no sense and will just leave you with wasted money. You should also take in to consideration the weight of the stabilizer as you will have to carry it around with the camera when shooting a video, so get one that works for you.
