03 Actual experience: Excellent and easy to use
Next, we come to the actual experience, which is divided into two parts: installation and use.
First of all, in the installation part, the installation of Zhiyun WEEBILL-S is actually very simple. You only need to fix the camera on the quick release plate with screws, and then perform simple manual trimming. You can refer to the scale on the quick-release plate and bracket during manual trimming, so that you can keep the camera basically level very quickly. Then it is directly locked using the buckle on the bracket, which is easy to operate, unlike the previous stabilizer that requires screws.
After manual trimming, enter the mobile APP and proceed in the APP Precision trimming can achieve perfection. Looking at the author’s description that this trim is very complicated, in fact it can be done in seconds.
The next step is the experience. We specially brought the stabilizer to the outdoors for some experience. First of all, the motor of Zhiyun WEEBILL-S is very powerful, and it can adaptively match the weight of the camera, which is very convenient and the core selling point of the product.
Outdoors, we have a lot of experiences, such as using stable Use the stabilizer to record video when running or walking quickly, use the stabilizer to record the video of going up the stairs at high speed, and use the joystick of the stabilizer to perform operations such as changing the angle of up and down, left and right. It can be seen that regardless of the operating mode, the screen of Zhiyun WEEBILL-S maintains a stable and smooth transition.
Although the product itself is not heavy, it is connected Professional SLR or mirrorless cameras, and matching lenses, will still have a certain weight, so Zhiyun WEEBILL-S designed the pot mode. That is, by changing the position of the tripod, you can directly switch to the pot-lifting mode, which makes it easier to hold and also allows you to shoot more low-angle videos.
During the experience, one thing has to be mentioned. The adjustment of Zhiyun WEEBILL-S is very convenient. When it is not connected to the APP, it can be adjusted and used through the buttons on the fuselage with this OLED screen. It is very convenient and fast. During the shooting process, you can switch the shooting mode, motor strength, follow speed, smoothness and other options at any time, allowing the photographer to complete the shooting of different types of video materials more quickly.
Of course, among many accessories, there is also a scale image I need to tell you about it. The scale image transmission is installed under the stabilizer, just insert the slider into the slot, which is simple and convenient. The image transmission can be connected with the ZY Play APP on the mobile phone to obtain a better monitoring and control image experience. If it is a team shooting, you can transmit the image to the mobile phone through the image, allowing the rear assistants to collaborate at the same time, and use the photographer’s own lens movement control to improve the efficiency of shooting.
Zhiyun WEEBILL-S is a product between the mobile phone stabilizer and the large-scale SLR stabilizer. Its core selling point is lightness, portability and a wide range of load-bearing capabilities. In addition, the price is easily affordable by ordinary users. Compared with products of the same specification, the price of 2,299 yuan has a strong advantage. If you encounter a promotional node, the price will be more favorable. Therefore, this product is more suitable for some independent video shooters, small video studios and other users to purchase and use.
