The big differences between amateur looking recordings and more professional ones has a lot to do with how steady the recorder can be held.
For big professional video cameras a weighted and balanced rig is used, this ensures the camera is not affected by every small movement of the operator.
Some newer phones such as the Xiaomi Mi5 come with 4 Axis optical image stabilization, a system that compensates for user motion to give a much smother less jumpy recording.
The Gizcam Redfox has been designed to work with mobile phones and action cams to give you the steady recording that can make your videos look great.
Gizcam Redfox is available in 2 variants for Smartphones And Action Cameras
The mobile phone version of the Gizcam Redfox weighs in at around 430 grams, whilst the action cam version comes in at just under 100 grams less at 338 grams).
Part of that weight is made up of a 3,000mAh battery, that has enough juice to run the Gizcam Redfox for around 10 hours, the Redfox can also function as a power bank to keep your phone or action camera charged up.
