Description du Produit

What is the Feiyu Tech G5 Gimbal?

If you often find your action camera footage hampered by shakiness, you’ll want some form of stabilisation to level it out. While most high-end action cameras such as the include electronic image stabilisation, this doesn’t come close to the mechanical stabilisation offered by a gimbal.

The Feiyu Tech G5 proves itself to be an excellent alternative to GoPro’s official . Although the experience with a GoPro isn’t quite as seamless, the G5 does have certain advantages: it’s compatible with a wide range of action cameras from a variety of manufacturers and has a user replaceable battery to name but a few.

Specifications

Splash-Proof design

Upgraded uni-body arm

Handgrip with built-in, easy to operate joystick and mode buttons

Battery life up to 8 hours

Compatible mainly with GoPro HERO4 but can connect to other cameras around the same size.

Self timer feature allowing for great selfies

How the Feiyu Tech G5 buttons work:

You can use the function button to switch the working modes, power on or power off the gimbal.

Power on: Long press Function Button and release it until the green light is on. Power off:Long press Function Button and release it until the red light changes from quick flashing to constant.

Press and hold the Selfie button to turn the camera 180 degrees to face you. Release to restore the previous position.

One tap on the main button switches the gimbal between Panning Mode and Lock Mode

Two taps switches it into Panning and Tilting Mode

Triple Tap will wake the camera rotate 180 degrees

Four taps will reset the gimbal position

Feiyu Tech G5 modes:

Panning Mode. The camera will follow left and right if you turn the handle to either of the sides. Perfect for panoramic shots because you don’t need to worry about the frame wondering up or down by accident.

Panning and Tilting Mode. The camera will follow your movements to left and right and up and down. This is the mode you have the most freedom in so wherever you point the camera the gimbal will smoothly follow.

Lock mode. The camera will stay fixed in one direction despite how you move your hand.

To charge your gimbal connect the USB cable (provided) to the small USB port located behind a rubber seal and plug it in any USB port to charge. The rubber seal for me was a bit dangly and didn`t quite fit at first so you might want to take a look and make sure it`s properly sealed before you take the gimbal out during rain. The flimsy USB port cover is probably the only thing that didn`t feel perfect with this product!

Things I don`t love

The carry pouch is tight, could be 3 mm bigger for a better fit.

Feiyu Tech G5 comes with two spare screws so that you don’t need to lose sweat if you end up losing the first two.

It is also important to know which cameras definitely do not fit in the G5 gimbal. This is, of course, not an exhaustive list, but if you own any of these cameras, it’s wiser to go for an alternative that works well with your piece.

– (any variant)
– GoPro Hero 3/4 cameras inside waterproof cases
– GoPro Hero+ LCD or GoPro Base Hero (with case permanently attached)
– Sony Action Cameras
– Garmin VIRB X/XE
– Garmin VIRB Elite/Original
– TomTom Bandit action Cam
– Shimano action Cam

– Any Contour action cams

Charging the Feiyu Tech G5

You will notice that your gimbal comes with two USB cables. One of them is for charging (it has a micro USB at one of the ends), and the other is a micro USB to mini USB cable that allows you to charge your camera with the help of the gimbal battery.

The Feiyu Tech G5 has a small USB port protected by a rubber seal covering, which looks at bit dangly, to be honest. It’s important to have a proper rubber seal if you want to take your gimbal out in the rain or you want to challenge its waterproofing capabilities.

Additional Pros of Feiyu Tech G5

The Feiyu Tech G5 comes with two tripod mounts. You can attach the gimbal on any one of them and can control it remotely through the smartphone app. And yes, it’s completely free!

The app uses Bluetooth to connect to your gimbal, and lets you control all the modes and adjust the speed of the gimbal movement through your smartphone. The interface isn’t too flashy or attractive, but it serves its purpose alright.

Secondly, as mentioned earlier, the gimbal comes with a micro USB to mini USB cable that gives you a unique ability to charge your action camera with your gimbal battery without any hassle at all.

GoPro cameras are notoriously short on battery life, and this feature provides a great solution to the battery problem when you are on the move.

The battery is replaceable; so if you run out of juice (which should not happen, since Feiyu Tech claims its battery lasts around 8 hours), you can always replace it with a spare one.

The gimbal does not come with a wearable mounting system. But if you own a GoPro Karma Grip Ring for your old GoPro Karma Grip gimbal, it should work just fine with this gimbal too. In case you don’t own one, you can buy it at an exceptionally cheap price on the GoPro site.

Video Recordings

The recordings are the best part of the Feiyu Tech G5 gimbal. Not only does it eliminate most of the minor shakes, but also ensures a cinematic, smooth footage.

Even if you are filming from a car via the smartphone app, the gimbal is bound to work perfectly well with a suction cup mount attached to the front tripod screw mount on it while facing forward.

It starts to shake a little when then you orient it sideways and clock high speeds, but remains fine at city speeds. If you are using a GoPro camera with the G5, your rolling angle will probably have a restriction of only 265 degrees instead of the standard 360 degrees, but chances are you are never going to have any issues with that.

Conclusion

The Feiyu Tech G5 scores high marks on all the departments when compared to the high end competition from the GoPro Karma Grip and the Feiyu Tech Wearable WG Series gimbals.

Not only is it the most versatile gimbal out there in the market, but also the first splash-free one that supports a horde of recent action cameras. It has a smaller unit than the bulkier GoPro Karma Grip, and a much longer battery life.

The only disadvantage (if you can call it that) arises when you are willing to use the audio on your GoPro Hero 5 while shooting with this gimbal. But then, it’s not always that you need the audio, and even in such cases, you may use another camera anyway.

The ability to remote control after pairing up via Bluetooth is an excellent feature, as is the capability to charge your camera with the gimbal battery.

It is compatible with most of the recent cameras and works perfectly right out of the box. The easy control, the waterproofing, the neoprene carry pouch, and the nice packaging constitute all the reasons why you should be looking forward to buy this gimbal instead of its competitors.
