Zhiyun-Tech SMOOTH-5 Overview
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. This Combo Kit includes a magnetic fill light, four color filters, a wrist strap, and a custom carry bag.
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.
Powerful Motor Performance
Professional magnetic steel motors with upgraded algorithms and a wider phone clamp ensure a safer and easier filmmaking experience. Strong compatibility allows mounting a phone even with wide-angle, telephoto, fisheye, and macro lenses.
