Some of the most exciting features of the SMOOTH-X include the quick portrait/landscape switch button, a built-in extension rod that extends the handle length from 5.7 to 10", intelligent gestures such as waving to start recording, automatic subject tracking, native camera control, and the ZY Cami app that allows you control, program, and edit your photos and videos. Internal features that can be controlled with the app allow you to capture stunning panoramas, time lapses, and slow-motion shots with simple controls and settings.

The smartphone cradle fits most smartphones with measurements from 2 to 3.5" wide and from 0.3 to 0.4" thick. The handle features a joystick that lets you perform smooth 300º pan and 285º roll movements, and you can also connect to the app via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to control start/stop of the smartphone camera and other functions while performing gimbal movements. The built-in battery can keep your SMOOTH-X operating for up to 5.5 hours, giving you ample time to capture a wide range of shots until you charge it up again with the included USB Type-C charging cable.
