About Us

We’re living in a golden age of storytelling. Thanks to DSLR cameras, GoPros and Smartphones, almost every single person on the planet now has access to technology enabling them to share their stories with the world.

As self-professed film geeks, there’s nothing more electrifying than the thought of the stories 6 billion creators can tell. But when it comes to shooting video, shakiness can get in the way of the story you want to tell. That’s where we come in. At EVO Gimbals we’ve created a full line of ultra reliable gimbals and accessories with one mission in mind: to help you capture the most dynamic shots possible so you can share amazing stories and of course -- Keep It Smooth.

Our team’s passion for smooth video goes beyond just putting another product in your hands - it is a belief we all share that we can make a difference, earn your trust and earn you as a life-long customer.

As one of the first American gimbal brands, we’re all about service. Located in the mountain playground of Bend, Oregon, our friendly staff is here to answer questions, provide support and take care of anything you need.

And because we love to talk shop, we share our knowledge and our passion with our community so you can take your shots and your stories to the next level.

Give us a call, shoot us an email, hit us up on Twitter - we're here for you.

Everyone has a story to tell.

Let’s tell them better...
