BEST PHONE GIMBAL AND MICROPHONE OPTIONS IN 2020

The one that is just the best at the moment is the: DJI OSMO Mobile 3 Combo
DJI make fantastic software and the reliability and functionality of the product is excellent. Ergonomics are very well thought out and is fully operable with just one hand. The list of features is lengthy and will have you just going “Wow”.

This page includes a cheap alternative – not a gimbal but a handle for a phone with a microphone on top; and the page contains numerous microphone options and some tripods.

As long as the lighting is good, the newest phones are capable of riding good quality video, but, the tiny internal microphones do not produce a fantastic sound. An external mic is recommended.

Other then the DJI Osmo gimbal, all the other equipment on this page is of budget and mid-range quality. I will add some higher spec recommendations later.
