There are a whole range of great options available to stabilise your handheld smartphone footage.

The most common is a 3-axis handheld gimbal stabiliser for your smartphone. The stabiliser gives the user the independence of handheld shooting while eliminating camera vibration and shake, allowing the camera to seem as if it is floating through the air. Honestly, once you have used one of these it becomes difficult not to use it all the time! They not only give you a great result, they are also just really fun to use and will have you producing dynamic, engaging content in no time!

The Zhiyun-Tech Smooth-II 3-Axis

Zhiyun actually have a great range of affordable stabilisers, including the above, or if your budget is a little higher you could go with the:

The DJI Osmo Smartphone stabiliser

How does it work?

3-axis stabilisation works basically by placing a motor on the 3 different axis around the camera. When the sensors detect motion on these axis, the motors counteract that motion to cancel it out almost instantly.

It can take some getting used to and a bit of practice to pull off some shots but I guarantee you that with a little effort and understanding of framing, this tool will set you a bar above the rest when producing your content.
