FeiyuTech G6 Max Multi-Use 3-Axis Gimbal

4-In-1 3-Axis Gimbal Stablizer

FeiyuTech’s G6 Max gimbal is designed for mobile devices, as well as mirrorless, point-and-shoot, and action cameras, originally released in January 20202 at CES with a retail price of $249.00.

The G6 Max is the sucessor to the G6 Plus, and adds new fucitionality and design features to improve user experience, such as a larger OLED screen, lock design, quick-release system, and a reverse charging supply.

Nine functional modes are built-in to the gimbal, accessible without the app, including proffesional video/photo features like inception, motionlapse, timelapse, and vertical shooting modes.

Battery

FeiyuTech’s G6 Max has an internal 2200mAh, 7.4V battey rated lasts for nine hours (Battery-life depends on payload), and can be fully charged in three hours using the included USB-C cable.

Quick-charging is discouraged, instead a 5V/2A adapter is recommended for charging the battery.

The OLED screen flashes the charging progress when charging, and displays a full charge symbol when fully charged.

WiFi And Cable Control

Included with the G6 Max are multiple shutter release cables for select Canon, FUJIFilm, Sony, and Panasonic cameras for charging and communication with the gimbal.

The camera connects to the gimbal’s USB-C port located beneath the quick-release plate, or with the Feiyu ON app over WiFi to adjust shooting modes, zoom, focus, white balance, ISO, and exposure.

Payload and Size

Despite its smaller size, half A4 paper to be exact, the G6 Max manages to increase its payload capacity supporting cameras weighing up to 1.2kg/2.65lbs.

The gimbal itself weighs 665 grams, and its dimensions are 143.6mm X 114.03mm X 299.41 mm.

Accessories

Other accessories include a USB 2.0 to Type-C cable, shutter cables, tripod, smartphone holder, and GoPro adapter with long screw, and other Type-C cables.

Criticism

I would like to be able to set the in and out points in timelapse mode via thumbstick, instead of by moving the position of the gimbal by hand.

This really needs a phone holder attachment if you are using any type of camera that requires an app to operate or change settings.

Considerable amount of time to to re-balance gimbal between devices, depending on camera shape and size.

I wish that the G6 Max would connect to the DJI Osmo Action camera so I can activate recording and switch between video and photo mode.

Portrait mode is rear-facing camera only, not compatible with selfies, which I would think a majority of users would use this for vlogging.
