The Chinese company FeiyuTech has provided us with another gimbal that is compatible with current action cameras such as the GoPro Hero 7 Black, after having completed the “very good” test of the smartphone Gimbal FeiyuTech SPG2. Currently the FeiyuTech G6 Gimbal is available for 199,00 Euro at Amazon. Whether the Action Cam Gimbal can convince you as well can be seen in the following practical test.
Scope of Delivery, Material and Workmanship
The scope of delivery of the FeiyuTech G6 is extensive. In addition to the gimbal, there are two camera mounts, an exchangeable battery, a USB charging cable, a warranty card and a high-quality plastic bag in the packaging. The first impression after unpacking is particularly positive due to the practical accessories.
The high-quality workmanship that FeiyuTech has already shown us in the SPG2 can also be found in the G6 Gimbal. The main material used is aluminium, the two exchangeable retaining brackets and the holder for the action cams are made of rubber to prevent scratches on the sensitive displays. Overall the Gimbal looks very robust thanks to its good workmanship, uncleanly processed parts, inaccurate gap dimensions or other defects did not show our test copy. Since the gimbal is protected against splashing water, nothing stands in the way of outdoor use. Thanks to the rubberized handle, the gimbal lies securely in the hand even in the rain.
