In this excellent person view (FPV) piece by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot SE_FPV, you'll see the effect that the ReelSteady post-production stabilization software has on FPV footage.  The software took the footage from a GoPro Hero 5 Session and stabilizes it, in effect compensating for the lack of a gimbal on FPV racing quads.  Beginning with some great tree-proximity work and then shifting to a concrete jungle setting, it's a highly cinematic piece which was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in July of 2019.
