    Great news to SJCAM Action Camera owners!

    The SJCAM Gimbal is being tested as we speak! While most Gimbals on the market will work with our cameras, the SJ6 and SJ7 will have a new "Gimbal Control" mode added.

    This will allow you to change the modes and settings using the SJCAM Gimbal. Other SJCAM models such as the M20, SJ4000 Wifi, SJ5000x etc can also be mounted on the Gimbal; But cannot be controlled by the SJ-Gimbal.

    We are still confirming the specs and which functions the SJCAM Gimbal will be able to control. In the meantime, feel free to check out several photos of the SJ6 and SJ7 mounted (pictures coming soon) on the Gimbal.

    Looking good :cool:
    Look forward to get the full spec sheet, though i have no gimbal experience i assume it would be good with a large battery in it to power it and camera.

    Cool
    Though i am hard pressed for money i will see if i can find the money for one before the season of 2018 really open up, but i have a few other items thats higher on the list.
    1. inspection of my car
    2. service on my car
    3. Tires for my car ( summer )
    And then i also sort of need a new computer, but this 4 year old one still work, just not as good as i would like it too, not least for processing 4K footage from SJ cameras.

    I was looking to buy a zhiyun or feiyu, but seeing that they are going to get one of their own brand and that as I have seen it seems to be quite good, I will wait a little longer, also according to what price goes on sale, if it goes well I'll buy it, but if it goes too high, it stays in China.

    still no body has purchased the gimbal ?? i am thinking to purchase it from this website , price is 149$, matlab Rs.9685 (1$=Rs.65)

    the cam shakes when we walk and record the videos, i think this gimbal will solve the proble, sj6 legend is very good cam in terms of clarity , no getting heat-up, batery back-up is also good

    Nice, but is it youtube that make the video jerky at times ?
    around 0:15

    Gimbal seem to perform fine, do the camera pick up sounds from it ??

    I think that was me walking a bit too rough to be honest.

    No noise from the gimbal is picked up, it’s silent.

    "Gutter" that mean Guys in Danish :) but translate to "kantsten" i would assume without checking on google translate.

    Too bad with the defective units, but in this day and age you can not hide such things, what matter is how SJcam handle such challenges when they have happened.

    Personally i feel its a good thing to go a long way for customers with bad experiences, and its still a way for a company to set itself apart from the many other ones, cuz there are a lot that will sell you something and then just stop there.

    Looking from the outside on the new gimbal i can only find 1 "flaw" with it, and that is that you can not replace the batteries ( assuming they are 18650 type )
    CUZ if that was the case then i could power a gimbal and camera for days as i have many of those batteries for other things.

    BUT ! It are not really a flaw with the gimbal, but it would be highly optimal for me if it was possible

    Do the gimbal have a reset button somewhere ?

    Some times in the early days i had the camera lock up on me and all i could do was remove the battery, but you cant do that with the gimbal.

    @TonySosa are hereby flagged so he will be notified about this when he log on.

    I see in your picture you are on the equipment from that fruit company, that some times create havoc with stuff.
    Do you try to charge the gimbal from a wall charger or do you use the MAC thing ?
