I don't know what you mean by "camera gimble" but yes it is...lol
The quality does seem fake, it looks like it zooms in and out at times. It's set to 1080p 60 FPS at Medium view. The touch screen on the back of the camera makes it extremely easy to operate. It ran off of battery power, rather than hard wired into the truck so it didn't last as long as I hoped. Hopefully I will be able to get most of the Baja 1000 recorded and each day of Vegas to Reno.
