It is quite comfy to grip with the Hohem iSteady ergonomic handle design whereas 4000 mAh battery power offers backup support. On the handle, we can found buttons and a joystick which will help you to move the camera position in different directions. All the buttons play different roles.

One of the features that impressed us is the Sport Mode, which can follow along with rotation, no worry to lost any fast-moving subject. Whatever you are doing---running, jumping, or swimming, iSteady Pro 3 can help you to capture the most exciting moment.

Just like what it said on the website, “Times flies, but memories last forever.” This would a great helper for people who loves shooting video. We can shoot some cinematic videos like a pro as well.
The Built-in 4000 mAh rechargeable battery includes the indicator to keep you informed. A battery indicator informs how many batteries are left.

We can also charge the gimbal with the power bank, and don’t have to suffer from embarrassment when we are the outside. Moreover, we can charge our action cameras with the gimbals connecting with the cable.
