Description

The Benro X Series 3XS Lite with Saramonic SmartMic is a compact 3-axis motorized smartphone gimbal with a mic port and with an external mic included. The 3XS Lite works with a companion iOS/Android app and supports most phones (with a 2 to 3.5" width). It also supports action cameras via an optional adapter (MFR# RAGP1). Although already compact, the 3XS Lite is foldable into an even smaller form to more easily fit in your bag when you take it along on your travels, your filmmaking adventures, or just to have with you on regular days. The motors are also lockable so there's no movement at the three axes while the gimbal is in your bag.

The gimbal features a 3.5mm TRRS mic port on the handle and comes with a Saramonic SmartMic. You get to record audio externally for higher-quality sound but it conveniently gets recorded directly to your phone. The SmartMic is an ultra-compact directional condenser microphone that captures the sound in front of the mic while rejecting sound from other directions. Featuring an integrated swivel and built-in shockmount, it can be pointed in the direction you want while compensating for unwanted vibration and the resulting unwanted noise, and this allows you to use it successfully while you're in motion with the gimbal, such as when running behind your subject.
