I recently received the Cinepeer C11 and it certainly exceeded my expectations for an entry-level model. Would have preferred to test it a bit more but wanted to post while you can still purchase at the introductory price of US $89.99 (Reg. US $119).
Firstly some positives, it’s well-built, very solid and the operation of the motors (no noticeable noise & very responsive) appeared to contradict the entry-level price. In my opinion, it looks and feels more like a premium product than a budget alternative. Claimed battery life is up to 12 hrs of continuous use and it can double as a power bank. It also has a very comfortable ergonomically designed grip.
A few things I didn’t like, no Type-C charging port and the zoom function wasn’t particularly smooth. Also the charging port of my phone is located at the bottom, so makes the live charging function useless.
All in all, the positives far outweigh the issues I mentioned, so wouldn't hesitate in recommending it as a great quality budget Gimbal.
The C11 is an entry-level smartphone stabilizer with sophisticated features and design. As a videography partner with great value for money, it incorporates multiple modes for video creation and is easy for beginners to use. Overall, it is a perfect gimbal for professional filmmakers and amateurs, allowing you to explore unlimited possibilities that you can achieve with your smartphone.
