The Best (And Most Affordable) Mobile Phone Stabilizers For 2019

If you regularly shoot photos or video on a mobile phone, then you understand how hard it can be to get a steady, non-shaky image. There are several available solutions to fix this problem, from stabilizers to gimbals of all kinds. However, many of these tools can be very expensive.

That’s why we put together this list of the best (and most affordable) mobile phone stabilizers for 2019. These rigs offer the same stabilization provided by higher end, more expensive products, but they cost a fraction of the price. So grab your phone, check out the list below, and before you know it you’ll be shooting your masterpiece.

Ztylus Stabilizer Rig Kit

If you have a tight budget, but still want a quality stabilizer, this just might be the right option for you. Not only does the Ztylus Stabilizer Rig Kit have an amazing price, it also works with any mobile phone, and has a no-nonsense design that is dedicated to helping you shoot smoother stills and video.

It has a secure, comfortable grip, which facilitates incredibly smooth movement, resulting in amazing stabilization. The Ztylus also has the ability to be mounted directly onto a tripod, which is extremely useful. Additionally, microphones and lights can be mounted to the top of the device via a cold shoe mount.

No frills here… just a simple, well priced, extremely useful rig.

Roxant Pro Stabilizer

Say hello to the Official Roxant Pro Video Camera Stabilizer. This amazingly useful rig is aimed at indie filmmakers and photographers, but really, it’s perfect for anyone who wants to shoot better photos or video. And it’s great for shooters who switch between different cameras. It can be used with any mobile phone, as well as DSLRs, GoPros, and other devices (as long as they weigh two pounds or lower).

The Roxant has a comfortable “no slip grip” and adjustable counter weights, so that you can find the exact right weight balance for you. The company says the device’s unique design even reduces strain and fatigue on the operator, compared to other rigs. And needless to say, this thing produces extremely smooth footage and images.

As an added bonus, all Roxant users receive lifetime customer support and free video training tutorials from the company. How cool is that?

ULANZI U-Rig Pro Smartphone Video Rig

This affordable stabilizer has two grips on either side of the device, which makes handling it extremely easy (and fun). It also offers more control for the operator. Additionally, lights and microphones (as well as other accessories) can be mounted on the top, and the rig itself can be mounted to a tripod, jib, or slider.

The ULANZI U-Rig Pro Smartphone Video Rig is compatible with mobile phones that are 2 inches to 3.5 inches wide. The phone attaches to the device via a sturdy clip, as well as a super secure tightening screw, which ensures the safety of your phone as you grab some incredible footage.

Control. Versatility. Great price. This rig has it all.

Shoulderpod S2 Handle Grip

The innovative Shoulderpod S2 Handle Grip is sleek, sharp, simple, and incredibly handy. According to Shoulderpod, the device is aimed at “creative travelers” and “visual storytellers,” but like all of the entries on this list, it’s perfect for just about anybody who shoots with their phone. This thing has a great price, an awesome look, and it works like a dream. What else could you want from a stabilizer?

First off, it’s usable with any mobile phone. Additionally, it has a tripod mount, a cool wooden handle, and a sturdy wrist strap. Also, this might be the coolest part… the S2 can stand upright, on its own, when set on a flat surface. Very cool.

Whether you’re shooting stills or video, one of these rigs is likely to solve your stabilization problem and become a favorite item in your ever-growing gear collection.
