Best Gimbal For Fujifilm X100F

Best Gimbal For Fujifilm X100F

Looking for the best gimbals for Fujifilm X100F? Here are our top recommended gimbals for your Fujifilm X100F.

When the X100T was discontinued, Fujifilm introduced the X100F, which replaced it with Fujifilm’s most recent X-Trans III / 24MP sensor (along with improved AF technology) and a number of other new features such as an AF joystick and an ISO dial.

The fundamental concept remains the same: a retro-styled body with a fixed 35mm equivalent f2 lens and an unusual hybrid viewfinder that combines optical and electronic perspectives in a single device.

Although there are no 4K recordings, there is also no weatherproofing or image stabilization, and the lens is still mushy when seen up close. Even though there are superior high-end compacts for general usage, an XT20 with a 23mm lens is a fantastic choice if you want Fuji quality in a little package.

Fujifilm X100F is a specialty camera that excels at eye-level street photography and will appeal to anybody who wishes they could have the features of the X-Pro2 – notably its viewfinder – in a smaller package.

It is possible to suggest the X100F if you understand and can make use of its unique features, and it continues to be the smallest body with Fuji’s biggest sensor in the lack of an X70 upgrade (which is expected to continue).

Following are the best gimbal for the Fujifilm X100F:

Best Gimbal For Fujifilm X100F in 2022

1. DJI RSC 2 Combo

A more thorough workflow is made possible by the DJI RSC 2 Pro Combo, which includes extra attachments in addition to the RSC 2 gimbal. The DJI Ronin RavenEye Image Transmission System, which enables 330′ of 1080p video transmission from the gimbal with a latency of about 50ms enabling on-set cooperation, is a significant innovation.

Three HDMI cables, a focus motor, a phone holder, two focus gears, and other extras are included for use with the RavenEye. A tote box and a metal small tripod are furthermore supplied.

The DJI RSC 2 is made for mirrorless and DSLR cameras and handles loads of up to 6.6 lb in weight, including the cameras and accessories. On the DJI website, please refer to the most recent list of compatible cameras and lenses.

Compared to the Ronin-SC, this revised gimbal’s predecessor, the RSC 2’s motors are 50% more powerful. A foldable design that enables underslung mode change is a significant component of the RSC 2.

The DJI RS 2 Pro Combo includes a number of extra attachments in addition to the RS 2 gimbal to enable a more thorough workflow. The DJI Ronin RavenEye Image Transmission System is a significant upgrade that enables 330′ of 1080p video transmission from the gimbal with a latency of about 50ms enabling on-set collaboration. A focus motor, phone holder, two focus gears, and three HDMI cables are among the additional extras.

A newer version of the Ronin-S gimbal with a payload capacity of up to 10 lb is called the RS 2. Monocoque carbon fiber axis arms and a shorter grip handle with a smaller battery cartridge, albeit it still has a 12-hour runtime, make it around 25% lighter and more compact.

The motors support cameras like the Blackmagic Pocket 6K, Canon 1D X Mark III, Sony a7S III, and ALEXA Mini LF and are around 20% more powerful. Please refer to the DJI website for the most recent list of compatible cameras and lenses.

3. MOZA Air 2 

A 9.25 lb weight capacity, freshly improved high-torque motors, and many other characteristics distinguish the Moza Air 2 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer from earlier iterations. A far larger variety of cameras can be employed, as can more varied combinations of cameras and lenses, thanks to the high weight capacity. Additionally, the Moza iFOCUS Intelligent Wireless Lens Control System, which is an add-on and is available in several versions, is compatible with the Air 2 and allows for standard and automated (with pre-set start/end points) focus and zoom control straight from the Air 2.

The Air 2’s ability to clean and provide an unhindered view of the camera LCD thanks to an inclined motor arm is another noteworthy feature. To operate the gimbal and camera and change settings like the shutter, aperture, and exposure compensation, there are a total of 12 physical buttons (where applicable).

Multiple configurations of the joystick, smart wheel, and smart trigger controls are available for various shooting techniques. An OLED display confirms the majority of the settings and modifications as well as the gimbal status and offers logical information feedback.

Although the Ronin-SC is smaller, it has a ton of features, improvements to the design, and technology crammed inside its small frame. The gimbal’s stabilization, pan, tilt, and roll controls, along with 360° continuous panning, allow it to produce steady 3D/360° motion shots.

The gimbal’s 2.4 lb weight makes it extremely portable and makes it simpler to handle the gimbal with a mounted camera for extended periods of time. For storage and balancing your camera, it has two locking modes. 

The sliding quick-release camera plate makes it simple to rebalance your camera after moving to a new location. Just balance your camera in the balancing lock position, demount it with the plate, travel, put the gimbal in storage mode, take it out, remount your camera, unlock, and turn the gimbal on, and your camera will still be balanced.
