Finally got a Gimbal. I choose the Snoppa Atom Gimbal to try out my need for a Gimbal. I wanted a simple and good and easy to use Gimbal for my videography project. Finally I decided to buy the Snoppa Atom Gimbal based on the good review from Zit Seng’s blog.

It arrived pretty fast (1-2 days) of ordering from Lazada. There was even a free gift of a tripod mount (which was not part of the original whole package). The package itself was well wrapped and well protected.

The only issue is I don’t really know how to use a Gimbal. Yes. Please laugh. Ha. You do need to download the mobile app (from Apple Store or Google Play Store) and link the app to the Gimbal with Bluetooth. There are supposedly tons of options to customise the Gimbal and I will have to investigate further 🙂

You can update the firmware of the Gimbal through the app and the app also has tutorials on how to use the Gimbal. They must have thought of idiots like me…. 🙂
