Zhiyun-Tech Smooth 4 Smartphone Gimbal

Update 20th July 2018. The Zhiyun Smooth 4 is now in stock.

Info just received from our Zhiyun technician:
The Zhiyun Smooth 4 is NOT currently compatible with Samsung Note 8 , despite Zhiyun-Tech officially supporting it in their Android app.
The issue is the Samsung Note 8 phone is too heavy so that the gravity point of the phone cannot be adjusted to the centre of the Smooth 4’s holder.
The Smooth 4 cuts off due to balance protection.
Zhiyun are currently working on the issue.

The following 3 paragraphs are our frank assessment of the Smooth 4 as of 19th July 2018. "With its follow focus feature courtesy a dedicated focus wheel the smooth 4 offers a few unique features yet to be found on a similar device. The Zy Play app may not be as polished as the DJI Go app but of course this could be updated in the future."

"The Mad Dog mode (Phone Go Mode) allows you to quickly focus on action without waiting for the gimble to slowly pan, instead it locks the gimble quickly from the touch of a button also allowing you to switch back to gimble mode just as quick. This is a great feature if you do not know where the next shot will need to be as it allows you to quickly move your point of focus whilst still shooting."

"The smooth 4 comes with a tripod stand which means no extra purchase if you want to sit your gimbal on a flat surface instead of carrying. The smooth 4 feels a little more robust and the gimbal motors seem beefier to the point where some users have successfully managed to use a small light point and shoot camera on the gimbal."

We have two video tutorials / reviews from Zhiyun-Tech. In this video, Brett shows us Smooth 4 functions like Zooming, Follow Focus, Vertigo Shot Presetting and Cool Phone Go Mode Scene Transitions. As for more other creative ways of playing, please stay tuned to Part II of ZHIYUN Smooth 4 Official Tutorial. I particularly like the transition mode.

The next of the tutorials will show you how to turn on and set up the Smooth 4 and then go on from there.

Can you use the Smooth 4 with your GoPro? View from 12.45 to see this specifically.

Please note that our Smooth 4 doesn't support every type of smartphone for Android. Since there are too many versions and it’s very difficult to support all the Android phones.
We are working on modifying the APP now to support more models of Android phones.

So please note below information and let your dealers or end customers be aware of it before order.

1. Please be aware that the customers can download the ZY Play app to check out if their phones are compatible with the Smooth 4, and below we provide link of the list of smartphone types that support the Smooth 4.

2. Updating the Firmware to the latest version 1.76 could solve most of possible problems.

This video is superb with all of its Hints and Tips.

After looking into smart phone sizes it appears this gimbal supports a minimum size of 62mm and given an iPhone 4 and 5 are about 59mm this will only be good for iPhone 6 users and upwards. Unable to confirm this yet as some specs are not provided by manufacturer so will update this information as soon as it becomes available

And this video is here coz iz rully luv dis geeza.

At 18 mins this is a long video but this guy is really great, he provides a frank and indepth look at some of the features that really make this gimbal unique and why you cannot do without it if you are getting serious about video

The two-way charging can happen at the same time, guaranteeing the longest operation time possible.
