With a standard ¼” threaded hole at the bottom, it is compatible with various add-ons of photographic accessories, allowing freehand capture for even extreme motion scenes.


Real-time Display Monitor

Designed with a 3.5mm video output port on its side, RIDER-M allows connection to an external display monitor that the user can easily see and check camera image for real-time angle adjustments thru mobile APP or a dedicated remote control. Get ready now to unlock more creative visual angles by placing RIDER-M on any mounting base at any shooting spot you like.


NOTE: Bluetooth remote control is available within the periphery of 10 meters radius in absence of electromagnetic interference (actual operation condition depends on the site environment).

3 Control Modes & 1-sec Angle Lock ±320 Wide Shooting Angles
3 Control Modes & 1-sec Angle Lock

To the greatest facilitation for outdoor creativities, RIDER-M’s 3-axis stabilizing system is designed with 3 classic gimbal control modes – PAN FOLLOWING, LOCKING and FOLLOWING MODE. Through simple mode switch users can make much easier angle adjustment for instant capture of moments without compromising camera stability. In addition, the unique 1-sec angle lock feature of RIDER-M allows manual setting of camera angle by simply turning the camera to a desired position for a second, and the system will auto lock that specific attitude for a quick & accurate snap.

Precise • Stable • Fast

Integrated with an independent IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) as the gimbal’s control center featuring high-speed MCU parallel control technology, enabling fast and precise calculation of and feedback to camera attitude and movement, RIDER-M performs with perfect smoothness, agility and silent rotations to make capturing of dramatic shots much easier.

Better Efficiency & Lower Consumption

Well-tuned by ZHIYUN’s self-innovated Instune Algorithm and empowered by optimized high-torque motor control technology, RIDER-M helps users capturing stunning live streams with unparalleled smoothness. Its extraordinary steadiness eliminates subtle shakes even when zoomed in x5 in display.
