Review – Jcrobot s5 Gimbal Stabilizer

After using the gimbal for the past few months, these are my considerations.

The price is attractive and the quality in general is not bad. However, one of the clamping screws to level the smartphone is a bit difficult to tighten or loosen, as it gets stuck. The app is vey weak, there is some lag when doing live video recording and some functions do not work properly, such as panning or face tracking. The zoom button is not well located for more ergonomic use.

This is a cheaper version than a DJI gimbal but much more affordable. For comparison the Gimbal DJI Osmo Mobile 3 costs around 110€ while the Gimbal Jcrobot s5 costs 55€.
