I'm new to topic of gimbals. I'm trying to accomplish following scenario: I have a phone, and I want to keep its camera always facing ceiling (parallelly) and always in same rotation in respect to xy coordinates.

To illustrate this: While I move (and rotate) with phone from point A -> B -> C, I want it to have always the very same xyz rotation.

enter image description here

Is it possible to achieve this with commercial phone gimbals? If yes, for which features in specifications should I look for to know gimbal is capable of it?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hi and welcome to Photo.SE! I think it's a good question. I'm curious though, why do you want to have the camera always pointing at the ceiling? I'm asking this, as there is perhaps another way to achieve your goal (if we know what the goal is). \$\endgroup\$ May 7, 2022 at 20:00
