Built in stabilization prevents shaking but does not keep your device level with the horizon like a gimbal

The image stabilization built into the camera is more for photo shoots.


Even people with $5000 Canon Camera with $2000 lens are using Gimbals for video shoots. If you want to shoot amazing videos, you need something like this.

My understanding is that it is the updated version of it and has more functionality for filmmaking. It is currently $20 off on sale at Adorama: https://www.adorama.com/zhsmooth4.html

While this is not the same, you make a good point because there will be some issues using this with image stabilization causing some distortion. This is mostly the case for iOS because android apps can turn off image stabilization whereas iOS can't.

You don't really need any additional software for this. The stabilization works with the stock camera app.
