Snoppa Technology introduces the ATOM, a gimbal that re-imagines the way people experience videography and photography. Made for an age in which consumers increasingly demand both functionality and portability, the ATOM drives innovation with its feature-packed design.
September 18th, 2018, Shenzhen, China － The ATOM, as the world’s smallest gimbal, is easy to carry, making it great for everyday use. It is lightweight, weighing only about the combined weight of 3 smartphones. The ATOM’s foldable structure also makes it great for storage as it could fit in a small bag or pocket and could be easily retrieved through its side strap buckle.
Despite its small build, the ATOM has a payload of 310g which makes using external accessories effortless. Setting it up does not consume much time and it guarantees that the phone is always centered when placed on the slot.
Made of high-end American nylon, the ATOM is sure to be durable and steady. Smartphones of various sizes including the recently released iPhone Xs / iPhone Xs Max, Samsung S9+ and Huawei P20 Pro among others could fit in the ATOM’s smartphone slot easily and could be placed freely because of the gimbal’s unconventional motor arm structure. The inclined arm design also makes shooting videos hassle-free as the side motor will not touch or block the phone.
The ATOM is packed with two built-in 2000 mAh 26350 batteries to supply it with a 24-hr battery life. It has a built-in QI wireless module, supporting phones capable of wireless charging and a type-C port for phones that need wired charging. Users need not worry about their phones’ battery life as this feature allows for making videos while charging devices.
Shooting is done easier using the ATOM as the buttons provide ease of access to the user. With just one hand, a person could reach for the joystick, zoom slider, portrait and landscape switch, trigger, and the record/stop buttons in just seconds. There are also two customizable buttons which could be designated for the given controls.
The ATOM also features a microphone port for third-party mics, enabling flexibility and more support for live or recorded videos.
With the Snoppa app, users could explore the ATOM even more. The app highlights photography and videography features such as motion and static time lapse, long exposure, auto panorama, slow motion, face tracking, and others.
The gimbal will be offered in Mystery Black and Sakura Pink. Snoppa ATOM’s crowdfunding project will begin on September 17th on GMT+8, 8:00pm (PST 5:00am) where early bird backers can get a super discounted price of $59/pc for a limited quantity of 1,000 units.
