Shenzhen-based Chinese company Snoppa Technology is mainly known for its electronic 3-axis gimbal stabilizer series, including handheld, on-vehicle types, for sports cameras and smartphones. The brand is one of the leading manufacturers of stabilizing gimbals. The brand’s advanced self-developed multi-axis stabilizing technology gives it an edge in the manufacture of smart film shooting facilities for both professionals and individuals.

The brand has now launched the Atom 2 phone gimbal under crowdfunding on Kickstarter.  Snoppa ATOM 2 phone gimbal is the world’s first auto-foldable 3-axis phone gimbal that is pocket size. The product takes over from the ATOM that was first launched in 2018 and which happens to be the first gimbal with a foldable design and which the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 seems to have borrowed some features from.

The ATOM 2 takes things a notch higher as it comes with an auto-foldable mechanism while retaining the 3-axis gimbal functions thanks to the ingenious hybrid 3-axis structural design. Compared with 1 or 2 axes selfie-stick style gimbals, a 3-axis gimbal can best eliminate shakes and jitters in all 3 axes of roll, tilt, and pan, balancing the phone camera in real-time which results in smooth and steady videos.

The roll and pan axes both use a direct-drive brushless motor while the tilt axis uses a special hybrid brushless motor self-developed by Snoppa. It has a much higher torsion and excellent stabilizing performance, which cannot be found in any other gimbal.

Snoppa which also takes the credit for the Vmate, a portable gimbal camera, says the ATOM 2 is a hassle-free phone filming assistant as it senses your action for auto startup and folding. It is also equipped with a built-in tripod and an extendable handle which expands the possible uses – phone-filming, vlogging, live-streaming, and selfies!

Snoppa ATOM 2 is currently the only gimbal that supports fast charging. It uses a USB-C port and charges the battery from zero to full in just 1 hour or 40 minutes charging to reach 80%. The gimbal also crams a built-in temperature sensor that can detect the battery status in real-time to ensure safety.

ATOM 2 has an embedded infrared sensor in the gimbal phone holder, which can actively sense the phone mounting status to prevent the motor from starting before the phone is mounted – helping to avoid motor damage. The gimbal also comes with AI gesture control which further makes it easy to use. Users can set customized gestures to start/stop shooting, to activate the shot clock, for inception mode, and more.
