In summer 2017, Xiaomi launched the most cost-effective high-end sports camera in face of the Mijia Mini 4K Action Camera. It was originally priced at 699 yuan ($105), which means we are dealing with a budget action camera capable of providing 4K videos at 30fps. But what’s more important it comes with FOV of 145 degrees, 6-axis EIS, 2.4-inch touchscreen, and weighs only 99 grams. But sports cameras are not interesting solely. You have to buy some accessories to use them more effectively. With this purpose in mind, Xiaomi launched a couple of accessories made for this camera especially. One of them was the Xiaomi 3-axis Stabilization Brushless Handheld Gimbal, which costs as much as the camera. At this moment, this amazing gimbal has got a 25% discount that means you can get your hands on it for only $110.99.

The Xiaomi 3-axis Stabilization Brushless Handheld Gimbal is made of an aluminum alloy. Thus it comes with an increased rigidity and stability when tilting. But this is not the most attractive feature we should take a look at. It uses a high-precision sensor and fully enclosed servo system with the professional LOS stabilization algorithm that provides stable and smooth image shooting in any condition. All these features are paired with a high precision acceleration, which detects the position of the Mijia Mini 4K camera. As we know, the main function of a gimbal is to keep the stability of a picture and this is exactly what this product offers.
As the name suggests, the Xiaomi 3-axis Stabilization Brushless Handheld Gimbal sports a brushless motor holding, which provides a 3600-degree rotation, while the itch axis roll range is up to 210 degrees.
You can take photos and record videos choosing one of four shooting modes: horizontal movement, Omni-directional movement, locking direction, and vertical mode. Once the gimbal is attached to the camera, the latter can be controlled via it. There are a few keys to take selfies, reset self-timer, record videos, and adjust screen settings. Say, when you click the function button 3x, the camera turns around to take a selfie, while two clicks of this button will return the camera to its original position.
This Xiaomi 3-axis Stabilization Brushless Handheld Gimbal comes with a power key, a function key made for photography and images, and an analog stick for controlling the rotation of the camera. But there is also a key to control the brightness.
As you guess, it comes with a battery. It has a 5000mAh capacity that provides up to 8 hours of normal use. There is also a USB micro port to charge the battery. It has a dimension of 7.65 x 7.10 x 25.80 cm and weighs 340g.
