With most drones that have built-in cameras with stabilisation, we typically see fully motorised 3-axis gimbals that can compensate for just about any movement of the gimbal and keep the camera locked onto the subject. For those that don’t have built-in cameras and gimbals, most people typically attach something like an Insta360 ONE R, GoPro or DJI Osmo Action and rely on electronic image stabilisation and horizon levelling.
But horizon levelling has one big issue. It has to zoom in and crop when it’s off-axis. Can a single-axis gimbal solve this issue and always allow your camera to see the full, wide field of view of which it’s capable? According to Nurk FPV, yes, it absolutely can. And in this video, he shows us why with the Quark single-axis gimbal.
