Our Try At A Feiyutech A1000 Review – A Great Little Budget Friendly Gimbal!

Although we may not be the best at reviewing products, we have decided that we are going to take the time to put a little bit more effort in and work towards improving our reviewing skills. That said, today we will be trying our hand at a dedicated Feiyutech A1000 review as we feel that this is a great little gimbal system that is not getting the coverage that it deserves.

Thankfully, this particular gimbal doesn’t cost too much money and can actually end up being almost a third of the cost of some of the higher end gimbal systems on the market right now. That said though, in our opinion at least, the Feiyutech A1000 actually delivers much more than just a third of their performance. Thankfully, you don’t have to know the ins and outs of how a gimbal system actually works to be able to appreciate what Feiyutech A1000 have managed to achieve.

One of the main upgrades that Feiyutech have worked hard on for their A1000 gimbal is the internal motors. Their older design has been dropped as they tended to be noisy, battery hogging, and slightly slow to stabilize rapid corrections. Their new mark 3 motors are great bits of kit that do their job very well indeed and are very quiet while providing your image stabilization for your camera rig too.

The automatic adjustment system programmed into the gimbal also ensures that they are quick at correcting any rapid vector changes in your gimbals position. They are able to seemlesley correct changes in bearing and azimuth too ensuring you some of the most stable video footage available at this price point.

We would also like to point out that the newer motors on the gimbals are less prone to overheating too. This allows you to use your gimbal system for much longer periods continuously without it overheating and shutting down or needing a break.

The upgraded motor system also allows the A1000 to almost double the payload capacity that it can support when compared to the older Feiyutech gimbals. The A1000 is able to support up to 3.75 pounds of total weight meaning your camera body as well as any accessories you use like a lens or microphone.

This is an excellent payload for the size, weight, and price of the A1000 and allows you to use it with almost all entry-level and mid-range DSLR and mirrorless cameras. This included the majority of the popular lenses used with these cameras for videography too.

The actual design of the A1000 has also been totally overhauled too. This ensures seamless movement about the 3-axis joint for your camera and lens combination. Some of the older entry level gimbals could end up having the lens knock into the gimbal frame when rotating so it’s definatley nice to know this is no longer an issue even when using the longer lenses.

Adding the Feiyutech A1000 review to your camera accessories will definatley provide some much-needed image stabilization to the kit of many of the amateur and entry-level videographers and YouTube vloggers out there. It is cheap, easy to use, and provides an excellent amount of performance compaired to what its competition can give you.
