Anyone using the Osmo Action with the WGX2 wearable gimbal?
Yes it works well. If the gimbal is not balanced then it just turns itself off. I have an external mic and adapter so it's not well balanced. I use small counterweights to balance it as near as possible. Then turn it in and it balances itself perfectly.Thanks for the rapid reply.
The max payload for the gimbal is 130g and the Action weighs 124g, but you're saying it works well?
How do you find the gimbal vs the stabilisation builtin to the Osmo Action? I have a Zhiyun Rider-m which I chest mount with a GoPro Session 5 and I find the stabilisation is incredible, the footage just seems impossibly smooth given how rough the terrain is. However it's not weather sealed so I was looking at an Osmo Action for winter use but I was concerned that the stabilisation needs good light since it runs at a higher speed to be able to counter the motion when I'd be using it at a time when there's generally less light.Yep - me
I'm using it chest mounted and handlebar mounted on a mountain bike. It will work helmet mounted but it's a bit heavy. My best results are handlebar mounted on the road, and chest mounted on trails.
