The add says it uses 2 18350 batteries, can you use 1 18650 battery instead?

  • 18350 and 18650 batteries are both 3.7 volts. The 2 batteries in the Z1-Rider are in series which doubles the voltage. So the answer to your question is no.

    I was shooting in the dessert in 100+ degree heat and it worked great. It was paired with a gopro 3 black and frame rate was 1080p @60fps. Battery life last about an hour or so. The gimble is in frame at 5:58 to 6:05 of clip. Hang out of a window of a car I pulled off the landscape shot shown at 2:09 to 2:37 with this gimble! These are just some examples. Alot of the walking shots were filmed with this gimble also. The main feature of this gimble is the ability to mount it anywhere ( within reach of the cord obviously ) and i did. If you plan on mounting this on top of your car or something the gimble cant handle the winds from the high speed and fails to stabilize.

    I desperately wanted to give this gimbal 5 stars, but I did have the same issue that other reviewers have had. About a month after using the gimbal, the blue light on the controller stayed steady blue and would not respond.. If you moved the cable near the base of the gimbal, it would start functioning fine. So why 4 stars instead of 1-3? Well, I contacted the seller about warranty and/or repair and they referred me to the manufacturer. I contacted Zhiyun through their website and received a response a day or two later. After several emails back and forth requesting pictures, serial #, etc., I was told that I could send it back for repair (shipping at my cost) or they could send me another cable to repair it myself. I opted to have Zhiyun send me the cable figuring I was somewhat handy at these things. The gimbal came apart without any issues and I was pleasantly surprised at the build simplicity. When I came to the two ends of the cable at the base of the gimbal and controller, I found they were simple pin connectors. No soldering or anything. Now I am just waiting for confirmation that they will send the cable. Once received, I'll update. As far as the gimbal goes. I loved it. I set it up on a selfie stick with a small clamp to hold the controller and took it on a cruise. I had more people stopping me and asking what I had and where I had gotten it from. The gimbal and GoPro worked like a charm......when it worked. Prior to the cable issue, I had also rigged it up and put it on my motorcycle. That took a bit of engineering with the controller and the cable, but it also worked well. You Tube videos of it in action: Testing Gimbal:[...] Motorcycle: [...] So with that being said, I still love the gimbal, I wish the cable would not have malfunctioned. However, Zhiyun has been good about keeping in touch with me and working with me to get it repaired.

    ハンディタイプのブラシレスジンバルをFeiyu Tech FY-G3Ultra Feiyu Tech FY-G4と使用してきましたが、GoPROシリーズではなく xiaomi yiに正式対応していることもあってこちらの製品を購入してみました。 Feiyu Tech FY-G3Ultraはどうしても横ブレが目立つシーンが多くなり ダメでしたがこちらの製品は前評通り、トルクフルで安定感は十分あるため 基本的な性能面でハンディタイプのブラシレスジンバルとしては 現状これ以上望むものがないぐらいです。 Feiyu Tech FY-G4と比較すると、バッテリーが16850のリチウムが標準で 2本必要な為、バッテリー持ちは良いものの重くなってしまいます。 持ち手の部分を短くして、18630バッテリーを使用すれば解決するので いずれ該当バッテリーを購入したいと思いますが、バッテリーは基本的に 生セルサイズでないと入らない感じなので、扱いには注意が必要です。 キャリブレーションは、専用ソフトが用意されており PCからUSB接続で比較的簡単にIMUのキャリブレーションが可能です Feiyu Techの製品では、ファームウェアのアップデートやキャリブレーションに 付属のUSB-TTLシリアルコンバータを介してPCと接続する仕組みですが こちらの製品では、USBケーブルで直接接続でき(おそらく内蔵している) シンプルかつ作法にうるさくない点は圧倒的なよく出来ています。 専用ソフトはMac版も用意されているので、普段Macを使用している私には BootcampなどのWindows環境を用意せずに済むのも助かります。 あえて、残念な点をあげるとすると ジョイスティックでピッチ操作を行ったあとに、リセットするモードがあると なお良い(一度電源を切るか、ピッチを戻す必要がある) Feiyu Tech FY-G4のようにボタンで切り替えられるアップサイドダウンモード (反転モード)があるとなお良い(反転は可能ですが手動です) 最大の残念はxiaomi yiに正式対応しているのに、xiaomi yi用の充電ケーブルが 付属しない(GoPRO専用のみ付属)これは、個人的にとっても欲しいので 是非販売して欲しい、作っても良いが面倒だしね。 最後に、購入先ストアのomalaですが、私の購入タイミングが悪くあちらの連休に 引っかかってしまうところで色々とご迷惑をお掛けしたにも関わらず大変 親切な対応をいただき、気持ちよく購入できました。 国内発送しているところがあまりない製品なので、大変助かりました。

    This thing is amazing!!! I looked at 3-axis gimbals for a few months and ended up buying this one because of my very active lifestyle. the longer cord with separate batter/controls is exactly what I needed to mount the head to any of my existing GoPro mounts. for use with a monopod (selfie stick) It comes with a long piece of double sided velcro to attach to your handle that works decently well. I used gaffers tape for a more stable solution. I highly suggest buying a couple more sets of batteries to bring with you on adventures. the battery lasts a long time compared to the camera, and i have multiple GoPro batteries, so i do not bother with the cable to charge your camera from the gimbal batteries, but it is a very nice feature to have if you want to record a couple of hours without bringing GoPro batteries along. I did use this with and without a touchscreen bacpac and it worked great both ways, without changing screws. I got the gimbal and downloaded the software on my MAC! Yes, they have mac software now. I did a calibration, but I don't think it was necessary. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

    This thing is amazing. Ultra stable footage, and the mount is extremely versatile with a GoPro mount and a 1/4-20 socket. You can put this thing anywhere.

    Sony cybershot WX350を無理やり搭載。3モードのうちlocking modeのみだけど使用できました。 試したかったこと ①3axis gimbalに手振れ補正カメラを乗せたらどうなるのか? ②WX350にジャンクレンズでワイコン作成した広角が実用になるのか? ③dolly zoon で撮影できるか? WX350の手振れ補正3段階のうちactiveが一番調子良かったのを確認して、野外でtestした動画です。 結果は、笑覧してやってください。

    This thing is awesome, you can mount to what ever gopro mount accessory you own, it gives you a lot of options on what you can use it for, I use it with a chest mount when I go mountain biking it handles the rough terrain and bumps no problem. Not sure how long the batteries last but they last longer than the gopro.

    Works great, handheld and mounted on my motorcycle. Takes a little getting used to with the 3 modes, but battery life is good and overall performance is outstanding. Search on YouTube for "Route 106 - Harriman State Park, NY" and look in the description for the one posted April 2016, you can see this gimbal in action. This was my first attempt BTW - super simple to set up and use.
