axes: tilt, roll and pan. Pow­er­ing the mo­tor and sen­sor is a 800 mAh re­mov­able bat­tery that is ca­pa­ble of up to 100 min­utes of op­er­at­ing time, which is more than enough for most shoots.

There are three ma­jor fea­tures of the Husky HY3M hand­held gim­bal. First, the builtin easy clip holder al­lows users to be­gin shoot­ing in no time, as well as de­liv­ers sta­bil­ity to an ac­tion cam­era dur­ing record­ing. Next is the com­ple­men­tary coun­ter­weight that can be at­tached to the pitch mo­tor when shoot­ing with larger smart­phones. The last fea­ture to high­light is the joy­stick, which can be used to con­trol the tilt and switch be­tween the shoot­ing modes of the gim­bal.

Un­like the pre­vi­ous Gib­bon GN1, han­dling the Husky HY3M is much sim­pler and faster. All we need to do is mount the ac­tion cam­era to the easy clip holder and ad­just its ver­ti­cal axis. Then, keep the gim­bal mo­tion­less be­fore pow­er­ing it on. Once pow­ered, the gim­bal will au­to­mat­i­cally sta­bi­lize the ac­tion cam­era and is good to go.

Per­for­mance-wise, we brought out the gim­bal for our on-field test­ing with the GoPro HERO4 at­tached, and it turned out great. The footages we shot looked smooth, sta­ble and pro­fes­sional – al­most like in the movies. Due to its com­pact size, the gim­bal can be used in al­most any en­vi­ron­ment, and is rel­a­tively easy to carry around. In terms of func­tion­al­ity, there are three shoot­ing modes: Pan Fol­low, Pan-Tilt Fol­low and Lock, but we pre­dom­i­nantly used the Pan Fol­low mode be­cause most of our in­tended sub­jects are fast-mo­tion sub­jects.
