Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, the combination of several features into one or the introduction of a new feature to an old product are also considered to be an innovation.
Phone gimbals are everywhere. Snoppa Atom itself had its ancestor, Atom, which has served as an inspiration for the new version to be designed and developed. When talking about the innovation Atom 2 brings to the market, we should surely refer to it being an auto-foldable 3-axis smartphone gimbal with as compact sizes and as versatile functionality as it has. This makes it different from the other gimbals available, as it appears to introduce a combination of desired features. It enables its users to carry a phone gimbal, a tripod and an AI camera helper in a pocket. Truly big things combined in those small sizes.
How much better is it than the competition? Is it faster? Bigger? Cooler? More affordable? There needs to be a solid reason why you should back this project over any other.

As it could be assumed, the competition for smartphone gimbals is truly intense. There are plenty of options available in the market, and each of them is unique and original. However, when deciding which one to choose, you want to make sure you get the most versatile one and the lightest one to carry around. As observed, Snoppa Atom 2 comes with reasonably compact dimensions and light weight. What is even more important, is that this smartphone gimbal appears as the cheapest one in the competition with yet having features like app integration, 5-way joystick control, and auto phone mounting detection as advantages.
How capable is the team? Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing.
Snoppa Technology has been in crowdfunding since a while. Although Atom 2 is their first campaign on Kickstarter, they have managed to create some reputation and to engage with some big segment of the backer community on Indiegogo since 2016.
Starting from as humble numbers as $41,970 is for their first campaign, the GoPro Stabilizer, Snoppa Atom, the ancestor of Atom 2, managed to raise $1.599.249 with the support of 14.617 backers. This was the breakthrough of the company in the world of crowdfunding, and also the well-planned continuation of the smartphone gimbal journey they had started.
Furthermore, the company has managed to launch a project this year on Indiegogo, the Vmate palm-size gimbal camera, and has raised over $1.000.000 with the support of 4726 backers.
The ongoing Atom 2 campaign has raised $194.651 in just 6 days and has still 33 days to go. These numbers tell a lot about the backers feeling trustful towards Snoppa and their mission and feeling confident to back and believe in them.
How transparent are the campaigners? Do they give their backers valuable updates on their progress? Do they engage with their backers? Crowdfunding is all about community, sharing information and building a meaningful relationship with the people who fund your project.
Let’s now take a look on how the well-experienced team treats their backers.
It is always the team’s reaction to the negative comments that illustrates who they truly are and how well-developed their customer service is. As you can notice, Snoppa team provides an explicit and thorough response to the negative feedback given by the backer. The team explains their working process and is open to further discussions and clarifications through email.
And then some backers who have been with Snoppa since the very beginning:
It is evident that Snoppa Technology has always been very flexible and responsive to their backer community. Their updates and the way they answer to their backers’ comments are the prooves of this. It is especially pleasing to notice that the team has created a healthy feedback environment by referring to the negative comments as responsibly as to the positive ones. I am inclined to believe this is one of the main reasons Snoppa manages to maintain its growing backer community.
Conclusion & Public Opinion
The key advantage the users keep mentioning in their feedback is, as you might guess, the compact size of the product.
This feedback refers to the previous version of Atom, while Atom 2 has even smaller dimensions and is more compact and lightweight!
Something referring back to the competition and highlighting the long battery life of the Atom.
Overall, Snoppa Atom has earned 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and has been generally reviewed as a helpful and practical tool to own and carry. This new smartphone gimbal is what the team has worked to improve. It will therefore be pleasing to explore backers’ opinion when they receive their Atom 2s soon!
