Feiyu Tech MG V2 Review

We now have full frame cameras in a very compact package from the Sony A7 line-up. I don’t shy away from weighty DSLR cameras, but mirror lesser systems do make some things simpler. Stabilization in the camera has recently become a standard characteristic. But external stabilization has remained the same until relatively recently. I initially purchased a glide cam with the purpose to use it because of the way it can effortlessly stabilize video. But I found it hard to balance, and it included a too high weight for me. When I heard about three axis electronic gimbals, and my life altered.

 The Feiyu Tech MG V2 is a 3-axis powered gimbals stabilizer that will change our film making. The new V2 of the MG series of gimbals include hardware design and less tool adjustment for good performance of gimbals. It also includes greater batteries and powerful motors so the gimbals can use for more 8 hours after that you need to charge it again. The Feiyu Tech FY-MG late gimbals designed for digital single lens mirror less size camera. One can get unlimited gimbals frame and a greater level of stabilization with all three axes of full 360-degree motion. For professional filming applications, the gimbals are easy to handle.

Design and built:

The Feiyu MG late V2 has various grips, two slots 18560 battery charger, with four batteries. Made from super solid aluminum and the Feiyu Tech MG V2 build quality Stop notch. The metal feels extremely robust and elegant constructed, but not too heavy. Without a camera on it, the Fey Tech MG V2 weighs only two pounds, which makes it very easy to handle. The surfaces where the hand is intended to grip coated in a good and grippy rubber. That cannot say as the first participant of the Feiyu Tech MG V2, which uses only metal on the surface where your hand is intended to grip it. It’s a little touch, but if you’re running and gunning in the middle of summer time and your palms are sweaty, it is wonderful to know that you can at a halt grip to gimbal without difficulty. The axes adjustment is easy and has fewer tool designs.

The gimbal comes packed in a white box measuring 35 x 40 x 12cm. It includes a list of compatible cameras; we’ll be testing it with our Panasonic GH4. Within the Feiyu Tech MG comes in its plastic carry-case with supplied shoulder strap. Like the Peli-cases, it is a sealed affair with a pressure release valve. Within the box are custom-cut foam inserts holding everything place, together with the instructions and warranty card sat on the top.The situation is of adequate quality, and stores everything you will need to build, operate and take care of the gimbal.

Features:

The Feiyu Tech MG V2 will only hold a total framework mirror less camera such as an A7RII/A7SII with large lenses, a6300/a6500 style body with most lenses, micro 4/3, or even small DSLRs with light lenses on them. I do think it works best with mirror fewer cameras, however. The significant benefit of a gimbal in this way is size, and that’s the reason the one-handed arrangement is preferred more that both handed configuration.  The two-handed operation it is probably just a little bit more constant, but holding a tiny mirror less camera with one hand, then being able to throw in a backpack fast is terrific. One-handed gimbals are a game changer, giving budget filmmakers a fantastic option for steady shots, and the Feiyu Tech MG V2 does just that.

It has 3axis motorized gimbals stabilizer which supports mirror less camera and DSLR. The load capacity of the camera is 3.5lbs. Rotation of all axes in 360 degrees but the axes fixed, and the joystick is adjustable for perfect angle. It has a USB powered battery charger with hand adjusting balancing daily. The Feiyu Tech MG V2 has three primary modes. The first mode is panning mode. The gimbal won’t tilt up or down. If the handle is twisted, then the camera will then comply with the twist in a smooth movement along the panning axis. A single tap will lock the panning set up. A double tap enables panning and tilting mode. This method allows the gimbal to follow both the panning and tilting axes. If you twist the handle, it follows right or left, and if you tilt up or down, the camera will then follow up or down depending on the store which you’re trying to accomplish, either one of those modes is incredibly helpful. The third method of this Feiyu Tech MG V2 is a selfie mode, triggered on a double tap of the button. It rotates the entire gimbals towards so that you can a film of you by yourself.

The Feiyu Tech MG V2 has a built in a joystick that makes precise movements possible where they’d have been pretty hard before. Another characteristic that Feiyu Tech added were two 1/4-20 threads. There’s one on the bottom handle when you’re in single-handed style and another on the top section when you’re in two-handed mode. Presumably, a tiny stand can be inserted on the bottom threads, letting you place the gimbal down when not in use. Even without a stand, however, I don’t find setting it to be an issue due to its excellent build quality, unless you are in sand or something. For the safety, purpose gimbal includes the carry case with foam inserted during your storage and journey. The Feiyu Tech MG also comes with a remote control, like the G4S and wearable gimbals. It’s unit that sits in the palm of your hand, paired with a dongle that plugs into the micro-USB port on the face of the gimbal to the controller buttons. Feiyu tech claim that it will work up from the gimbal. Here we see the gimbal with dongle installed. Press the button the remote for a second to power it on before connecting the dongle to the gimbal, eventually power the gimbal. It’s important to remember that plugged in, the hardware buttons on the gimbal won’t function. The blue and button joystick operate just like the controller found in the gimbal. Apart from a few other features, Sony has altered the game for me with their five axis IBIS (in body image stabilization).

Performance:

The Feiyu Tech MG V2 surprised me with how well it performed. I’ve used it extensively with both the Sony a6300 and A7RII, and both performed very well with it. After the cameras had balanced, the Feiyu Tech MG V2 took over. The stabilized footage is simple when using the sensor stabilized A7RII, but it was even a breeze while using the non-stabilized a6300 and Zeiss Batis 25mm lens. So much time as I tried to keep a relatively smooth walking or running speed, the vertical axis wasn’t even affected much. I’ve yet to use any warp stabilizer in post-production. I mostly use wide-angle lenses when the camera mounted on a gimbal.

It has three shooting modes:

Panning -Camera can left and right, but the tilt and roll fixed, this is terrific for stabilizing walking.

Pan + Tilt – Same as above but it is also possible to tilt down and up; just roll fix.

Lock – Camera remains fixed pointing in 1 position, pan, tilt, and roll are all fixed.

Usability:

The Feiyu MG-Lite V2 is a pistol and dual-grip gimbal that designed for mirrorless cameras. It’s for a budget friendly stabilizer. It is relatively cheap, works, and just a tiny bit of patience & dedication to reading the manual and viewing a couple of setup videos on the internet, it will serve your objective. The fact I can alter the grip in so many ways is truly an enormous advantage and among individual differences in comparison to another gimbal. The basics are comfortable, mount the camera, equilibrium and then turn it on. When properly weight is evenly distributed to balance the camera and the gimbal will balance on end, this permits the camera to naturally sit balanced in the centre and decreases the load on the motors. After balanced you can turn on the active stabilization and start shooting.

Multiple Configurations

Two-Handed: Uses the built-in handlebar and both handgrips for a two-handed model configuration, with the camera overhanging below the handlebar.

Two-Handed Inverted: above the handlebar positions the camera that allows you to detain eye-level footage while keeping your arm in a distant ordinary place.

Single-Handed: Uses a unique handgrip above the gimbal that functions as a model top-handle. This setup is perfect for low-angle shooting.

Single-Handed Upright: Places the gimbal straight on top of a particular hand hold for a conventional single-handed gimbal stabilizer design.

Operating Modes:

Panning and Tilting Mode: The camera is allowed to adjust right or left and tilt up and down. Turns are limited.

Panning Mode: The camera is allowed to pan left or right. Perpendicular tilts and rolls controlled.

Lock Mode: The camera stays in its present direction. All tilting, planning, and rolls controlled.

Innovation:

Setting up in its default pistol-grip is pretty straight familiar with two load bolts, hold the button below the joystick to turn it on and screw the bottom handle on the gimbals. The gimbals itself feel lightweight and have a comfortable design in contrast to Ian’s pistol-grip gimbals, and a lot smaller than the Pilot fly H1 or H2. The stabilizer aims to hold mirror-less cameras which are less in weight. The exceptional variation in the way of adjusting the gimbals. Instead of conventional screws or small handles that let you tighten and loosen the tilt/pan axis, the Feiyu has knobs that were frustrating initially since the adjustment slightly slide when I tightened the knobs. But it’s easy to get used speedy and not always be a deal-breaker. If you typically behave like a warm-shot and try to form out things without initially looking at the manual, you can do this, and in this case, it had thrown into check by fire But rigging a Sony A7r II, using a Met bones IV and Tamron 24-70mm attached to it.

In versatile for professional creation MG V2 is three axis handle device which dedicated for in mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. The pattern present in the design of camera inspires the video creators. It has basic industrial design and light weight with incredible capacity.

The advanced electronic control mechanism induced in the camera by this the joystick enables you to modify the gimbal angles physically. The straightforward and capable user interface brings four different operation combo and frees you from finding the right button to press from the camera.

The main innovation of this camera is it assembles instantly, and settings are automated. The patented quick release panel enables rapid weight center alteration and the camera mounting through its thumb screw design and grid plate. By instant auto balance after power on the MGV2 frees you from all the terrible setting. It contains fastidiously selected materials which built from 6061 type aluminum alloy and allows for CNC processing.

Relatively straightforward to set up and adjust, it includes everything you need in a compact case at a fair price. Indeed this very low price point provides indie film producers, film students, and amateurs alike a whole world of fresh run-and-gun stabilization choices. So let’s take a look at what you get for your money, unboxing this pre-production version.

The Evolving Core Technology of the gimbals:

MG with the latest drivers, for three years constant self-innovation and breakthroughs, integrated latest research fruit of post measurement, motor drive, intelligent control, an electronic circuit, it works smoothly. Keep good stabilization, through the optimization algorithm, save time, increase efficiency.

I haven’t played with a lot of pistol-gripped gimbals or budget stabilizers under the $1000 price point, aside from the Ikan Beholder EC-1 and DS-1 that my friends have (Psst Ikan or Pilotfly). However, I am impressed with the quality of this Feiyu for the price point where offered.
