Why do I Need the PlexiCinema Gimbal Upgrade?
Better quality footage! The PlexiCinema Gimbal houses more professional cameras such the Sony RX100 (II/III) or 4K RX100 IV. The combination of that along with the Cinema's additional stabilization features as well as using this on the PlexiDrone X8 configuration results in unmatched stable and high-quality content. If you are looking to create aerial footage for professional clients then this is the camera stabilization of choice for PlexiDrone.
