The Smooth-5 Smartphone Stabilizer from Zhiyun-Tech has been updated and designed for a more compact and intuitive experience to provide cine-style functions to content creators using their mobile phones for video capture. When used with the free, downloadable ZY Play app, the control panel enables Android and iOS users to control both gimbal and smartphone camera functions such as focus, zoom, time-lapse, and still photo settings.
The redesigned Smooth-5 controls are easier to use than ever, reducing the need to touch your phone's screen and minimizing unintended jostling while recording. The Smooth-5 is compatible with almost any mobile phone; it features durable magnetic steel motors, an improved battery life, and an extended 3-axis range, and its lightweight, compact design helps its mobility in motion. Its easy-to-control interface allows you to perform a variety of effect shots such as dolly zoom, reverse shot, time-lapse, and slow-motion. A mini tripod is included to use the gimbal on a flat surface for steady shots or for when it is not in use. A USB Type-C charging cable is included to utilize the PD fast charge function for a quick two-hour charge, and it can also be charged while shooting using a separately available power bank.
Shrunk by 40% of its predecessor, the 3-axis gimbal is an ultra-mobile plug-and-play gimbal. With free movements from high to low angles, its 3-axis range has been updated to support 360° unlimited panning, 349° tilting, and 300° roll. The design of the rear-mounted motor enables you to shoot ultra-wide-angle videos without worrying about any block when using ultra-wide angles on your phone.
