Have you ever noticed all smartphone gimbal stabilizer in the market has almost similar design? Mainly on the part where it blocked the charging port on most devices.
Now, if you have been looking for a smartphone gimbal stabilizer and still want to have access to your smartphone’s charging port, I think this might be the one you have been looking for. It is called Snoppa M1 and it is the cheapest 3-axis smartphone stabilizer in the market going for as low as $59 each.
One caveat, Snoppa M1 smartphone gimbal stabilizer is an Indiegogo project. As usual, crowdfunding is an investment and it comes with certain risk and in this case the product may fail to be produced.
The company behind this project is Snoppa and supported by Arrow Electronics. Snoppa already has 1 successful project prior to M1 which is Snoppa Go; a gimbal stabilizer for GoPro action camera.

I’ve been looking to own a handheld smartphone gimbal myself. The only reason why I haven’t yet bought any was because of their prices. Read on the 5 smartphone stabilizers that I think are top of the game at the moment.
I’m not a photographer, I don’t see the point of having to spent $300 for a gadget that I know would not be used that frequent. Still, for $59 it is basically a steal. So I grabbed one. As of writing this article, the project has so far collected $237,633 in funds and has 17 days left before ended. If you’re also looking to get one, hurry up and click on this Snoppa M1 and let me know below.
