3-Axis Smartphone Gimbal Stabiliser
The Benro X-series 3XS Lite is a 3-axis smartphone stabiliser characterised by its portablity factor.
Featuring a unique foldable design that allows it to be folded up to about the size of a smartphone, the gimbal will fit easily into most bags and jacket pockets while its motors are locked to remain in place during transportation. With a 320º pan rotation and a payload of 290g, the 3XS Lite is suitable for most mobile phones. Its barrier-less smartphone clamp design also allows smooth and easy switching between automatically balanced horizontal and vertical orientations at a push of one of the 3XS Lite's customisable button, and also provides open access to the ports in either orientations. The trigger button on the handle of the flexible 3-axis gimbal allows you to switch between the Universal Follow mode which provides for smooth camera movements in the direction you are aiming and the Locked-down mode which enables the camera to stay locked on a subject whilst the gimbal is moving. The use of the directional button in conjuction with the modes allows flawless control of your gimbal movements. Mulitple customisable buttons, which can be easily programmed to selected functions such as Roll Following and Face Tracking via the companion smartphone App, provide for flexibility to suit user preferences and requirements. The app also allows calibration, parameter adjustments, updating of firmware and more.
The 3XS Lite can also be used handsfree during Panorama or Motion time-lapse modes by mounting the stabiliser to the supplied mini tripod or other mounting accessories via its 1/4"-20 thread mounting hole. For supporting high quality audio recording, you can use a short 3.5mm (TRRS) audio cable to connect your phone to the built-in audio passthrough and mount a compatible 3.5mm (TRRS) microphone on the gimbal. With a running time of up to 24 hours on a single charge, this gimbal will keep stabilising even during extensive shoots. Power up the 3XS Lite with the supplied charging cable during breaks, or store it away in the included drawstring bag.
