Shenzhen, March 25. Zhiyun has won an award in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019. Weebill LAB received the Red Dot, which the renowned jury only awards to products that feature an outstanding design.
Weebill LAB, compact stabilizer for mirrorless cameras
Weebill LAB is a 3-axis stabilizer for mirrorless cameras featuring portability and ergonomic design. For the first time in the industry, a versatile and ergonomic tripod is introduced to the stabilizer which allows users to either hold it upright, or enter a handy underslung position by mounting the tripod as a handgrip, perfect for low-angle shooting. Another innovation is the built-in wireless image transmission module which supports real-time monitor, framing and parameter control over the camera. Most digital devices can be readily used as a monitor and remote controller. Besides traditional gimbal modes, Weebill LAB introduces Vortex Mode, which allows 360-degree barrel roll on pan axis, while the other axes follow with the gimbal movement, adding great dynamic to the footage. To preserve peak moments, Weebill LAB is equipped with a double quick release plate of both Manfrotto and Arca-Swiss standard for quick setup. The well-crafted latch design on each axis makes it a good fit to backpack, perfect for travel Vlogger stepping up their games.
