Smooth-5 Advanced Smartphone Gimbal

If you’re practiced at creating your own video content using your smartphone or want to step up your game, the Zhiyun-Tech Smooth-5 is the gimbal for you. This latest Smooth gimbal iteration offers multiple controls via a central panel, minimizing the need to touch your phone’s surface and thereby lessening the chance of jostling your frame. You can also control functions like focus, dolly zoom, slow-motion, and time-lapse using the ZY Play app and your Android or iOS phone. The Smooth-5 features reliable steel-magnet motors, an extended 3-axis range, and improved battery run time. Use the included mini tripod for stationary shots or to rest your Smooth-5 on a flat surface between takes. Add easy fill lighting with the Smooth-5 Combo Kit, which includes a magnetic light, four color-temperature filters, and a wrist strap to the Smooth-5.

When you want the option of capturing smooth footage wherever you go or on the spur of the moment, turn to the Smooth-X2 gimbal. This stylish, lightweight smartphone gimbal folds up so you can take it almost anywhere, and it has a built-in pole that gives you an extra 10.4" of reach when fully extended. Auto subject-tracking, slow-motion, time-lapse, and panoramic shots are just a few of the modes available in this user-friendly gimbal. Choose the Smooth-X2 Combo Kit to add a magnetic fill light with four color-temperature filters to the basic gimbal unit.
