Zhiyun Rider-M Gimbal Review: CONCLUSIONS

In my opinion, the Zhiyun Rider-M is a really great gimbal that has been working absolutely fine so far.

The shots it allows you to take look very smooth even if you don’t hold the gimbal steadily and simply walk normally. Also, the device doesn’t feel cheap at all since it is made entirely of metal.

The last things I wanted to mention again is a great battery life, the ability to control the gimbal using your phone and the ease of use of this device. You just take it out of the box and start shooting.

All in all, I can definitely recommend the Zhiyun Rider-M if you want to step your action camera video game up. I will be using this gimbal in some of my future reviews and I will update the description of this video if something goes wrong with this device. For now, I love the way it works and I think it’s well worth the price of $250.

you know action cameras are great they're very compact easy to use and they can produce a high quality footage also my fr key action camera gives me the convenience of infinite focus and wide-angle lens just like a GoPro or any other high-end sports action camera however the handheld footage is usually shaky and wobbly but one of the best the most mobile solutions is a gimbal if you don't want to carry your bulky tripod everywhere you go I just came across the Zeon Ryder M which fits most of the action cameras and is just a fantastic load device and it's very affordable my name is limas stay tuned once I say affordable the gimbal costs below 250 bucks and I will leave all the links down below the video the device ships with all the stuff you need to start shooting videos some of the notable accessories include a high quality selfie stick that is made almost entirely of metal also there are two sets of batteries a charger a really nice carrying pouch video output and charging cables for GoPro cameras and the GoPro accessory adapter so you can attach the gimbal to almost anything you want the very first thing you're going to notice is the build quality the gimbal is made entirely of metal and it doesn't seem to break anytime soon we have some standard parts as the microUSB GoPro charging and the video output part the quarter inch screw mount allows you to attach the gimbal to all sorts of accessories if you attach it to the tripod like I did you'll get some very smooth shots what I love about the Xion Rider M is that it is very easy to use right off the bat all you have to do is to put your camera into the bracket tighten up the screws turn it on and you're good to go we have just two control buttons the power and the mode button the default mode is called the pen following mode and I use it most of the time I have to tell you that the footage just looks stunning I was simply working normally and I didn't try to hold my hand steadily at all and but the footage looks very smooth also the gimbal is very responsive and even if you move it too quickly you will still have smooth and slow panning and tilting motion one mistake that I made was holding this selfie stick completely vertically that's why one of the axis of the gimbal was caught by the wide-angle lens of my e-40 camera in a few shots if you don't make this mistake you will be able to shoot some awesome looking videos if you press the mode button once the gimbal will enter the locking mode which is great for smooth band until shots if you want to film a particular object this mode works great with both landscape and product shots if you press the mode button twice you will enter the pan and pitch following mode where the gimbal moves towards the direction you point the camera to this mode works pretty well too even if you move the gimbal quickly you will get a smooth shot since all the axis moves slowly the last mode is the selfie mode and it is triggered by pressing the mode button three times a cool feature is that you can simply point the gimbal to that direction you want and hold it for one second and the rider M locks that angle automatically another great feature is that you can control the gimbal using your phone via the Bluetooth obviously you can also switch from one mode to another but you can also control the gimbal manual to get that perfect chat when it comes to the battery life is just fantastic you can always track the amount of juice left using the app but I have to tell you that the batteries last forever and I wasn't able to kill them in like five days of using the gimbal if you need to recharge them the supply charger fully recharges the batteries in about two hours in my opinion the Xion writer M is a really great gimbal that has been working absolutely fine so far the shots it allows you to take a look very smooth even if you don't hold a gimbal steadily and simply work normally also the device doesn't feel cheap at all since it's made almost entirely of metal the last things I wanted to mention again is a great battery life the ability to control the gimbal using your phone and the ease of use of this device you just take it out of the box and start shooting all in all I can definitely recommend the Seon writer em if you want to step your action camera video game up I will be using this gimbal in some of my future reviews and I will update the description of this video if something goes wrong with the device for now I love the way it works and looks and I think it's well worth the price of about two hundred and fifty bucks it was lioness thanks for watching and if you guys have any questions please drop me a comment down below also please subscribe to the channel if you haven't already and whole decline in SHINee on social media like on Facebook Twitter and Instagram see you in the next video soon

  1. Your video is always awesome. One question, how much the gimbal's motor noise affecting the recorded audio? Understand that you do not record the audio with the action camera, but just wondering whether the noise really presence or not. Thanks.

  2. Hi TechLineHD! From the time you shot this video and now, how is this holding up? I'm planning to get this gimbal, but im torn between this and the removu s1. Would you recommend this over the removu? Thanks 🙂 hoping to hear back from you. Great review btw!
