FeiyuTech SPG Plus handheld Gimbal Review

The FeiyuTech SPG Plus gimbal is a dual-grip electronic stabilizer for your smartphone. This gimbal rig is perfect for shooting videos on a budget if you already have a smartphone. The image quality of smartphones continues to impress, and by adding stabilization, you can achieve a very professional result. The image quality isn’t the only thing that make a video look good. You need clean steady shots. The FeiyuTech SPG Plus delivers just that, super smooth footage that looks like it was shot by a pro. You can slap your phone in the stabilizing rig and take your shaky handheld shots to the next level.

The dual-grip helps with advanced camera movements, more so than a single grip handheld gimbal. You can move your arms from side to side to mimic a slider shot. You can raise the gimbal from your feet to above your head to mimic a crane shot. Then of course the tracking shots are perfect for walking into a scene. There is also a joystick on the rig that allows you to pan and tilt the camera for smooth accurate shots.

The last feature I would like to highlight is the vertical mode. If you turn the gimbal on its side it automatically balances the phone vertically. Normally you’d never used this in film, but with Instagram and other social outlets allowing vertical video, this is a great feature to have.

Getting the FeiyuTech SPG Plus gimbal rig could be the single best thing you could do to improve your videos across the board. The shots you can get handheld are extremely limited, but with the SPG Plus, your options are wide open. So go out, grab one for yourself and start making better content.
