The Benro X-Series 3XS is a 3-axis smartphone gimbal stabilizer with a unique foldable arm design that allows for easy storage and travel.
The 3XS is unlike other smartphone gimbal stabilizers, as it allows for the gimbal to be folded up and carried with minimal storage space needed. The gimbal can fit easily in most bags or jacket pockets. This allows it to be carried most places.
The Benro 3XS also features a barrier-less smartphone clamp. This design also allows the user to go between horizontal and vertical orientations automatically with the push of a button, and to access the smartphone ports in either mode. The smartphone clamp design also features both wired and wireless charging of your phone while the gimbal is powered on.
Ideal for most smartphones, the 3XS features a 2000 mAh capacity battery which provides 24-hours of use. The 3XS will keep up with you during the most extensive days of shooting.
With multiple customizable buttons, you can easily select and control your desired functions with each button by using the companion smartphone app. By pressing down on one of the customizable buttons, you can switch between features such as Roll Following, Face Tracking, automatic rotation of your phone's orientation from 180 to 90 degrees, and more.
The handle also features a trigger button which will allow you to either use Universal Follow Mode (default) or Locked-down mode (trigger depressed).
With Universal Follow Mode, it provides smooth camera movements towards the direction you're aiming. You would use this mode when circling around a subject or making several dynamic camera movements following a subject.
Locked-down mode keeps the camera locked on a subject while moving the gimbal. With this mode you can replicate movements similar to a jib or slider.
By using the directional button in conjunction with these modes, you can flawlessly control your movements. The threaded receiver allows for additional attachments, giving you even more flexibility with your shots.
The companion smart phone app allows you to calibrate your 3XS, adjust parameters, update the firmware, create a panorama, or create a beautiful time-lapse with dynamic motion.
For advanced smartphone camera control, you can directly operate the photo shutter/focus, video record, and zoom making filming more convenient.
The underside of the Benro 3XS handle has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for mounting the stabilizer to a tripod or using desired mounted accessories. This allows you to use the 3XS handsfree during Panorama or Motion time-lapse modes, as well as during Object or Face Tracking modes.
Finally, the 3XS offers the ability to use an external microphone without interfering with the operation of the gimbal. With the included 3.5mm audio cable and built in passthrough, you can mount any compatible 3.5mm (TRRS) microphone onto the handle of the gimbal for high quality audio recording directly to your smartphone.
The Benro 3XS is ideal for most smartphones in the market today. Boost your production value while traveling light and compact with the X-Series 3XS Stabilizer.
