Balance the gimbal properly. Ideally, your gimbal will have an automated balancing process. But either way, read through the manual to find out if there’s anything you need to do ahead of filming. If your gimbal isn’t properly paired with your camera, it won’t work as well and you may end up reshooting your footage.
Experiment with the movements. It might take you a while to get used to the scope of your gimbal’s movements, especially since you may not use all of them in everyday shoots. Practice makes perfect though, so go through each movement and think of ways you can put it to use for your travel videos.
Hold your gimbal correctly. Gimbals are there to make handheld shooting easier and more comfortable, but remember, they add weight to your camera gear. So, if you’re holding your camera and gimbal at an arm’s length, you’ll definitely feel the strain! Aim to hold the gimbal close to your chest and stomach, and let it move for you.
