Designed for smartphones, the Zhiyun Smooth 4 3-Axis Gimbal gives your mobile footage a more professional look and feel. Using the ZY Play app, you can control the gimbal and your Android or iOS device. Zoom in, start or stop recording, capture still images, and more. Tailored to mobile film makers, it has added functionality like the Vertigo zoom effect, POV Orbital Shot, and advanced shooting techniques like roll-angle, time lapse, and motion lapse. The revised controls are more ergonomic, with a large dual-purpose follow focus knob, a quick action trigger, and separate switch for changing modes.  With up to 12 hours of run time and the ability to charge your phone from the internal batteries, you’ll be able to shoot all day long.

3-Axis Gimbal with Powerful Brushless Motors

Made for smartphone movie makers, the 3-Axis Zhiyun Smooth 4 smartphone gimbal features upgraded brushless motors that can help you capture professional quality video. With 240° of tilt and roll, the gimbal’s stronger motors allow for more versatile movements so you can get more creative with your filming process.

Supports up to 210g Payload

The Smooth 4 3-Axis Stabiliser can support payloads up to 210g. This accommodates most smartphones, including the larger options out there. It also leaves you with plenty of room for accessories, like additional lenses or lightweight microphones for even more versatility. 

ZY Play App Functionality

Download the ZY Play app for your iOS or Android device and you can unlock the gimbal’s full potential. Once paired, you can use the Smooth 4 to control your phone’s camera settings. Change things like exposure, ISO, white balance, and shutter speed all without touching the screen. You can easily switch from shooting video to stills, or choose other settings like full-auto mode. 

Dual Action Follow Focus and Zoom Wheel

On the unit’s side, you’ll find a large dual-purpose follow focus wheel, the first of its kind for a gimbal. It lets you smoothly pull your focus from one object to another for an amazing cinematic look. Tapping the FN button switches the knob into zoom control mode so you can get up close or put a little distance between you and your subject. 

Ergonomic Controls for Easy Operation

Along with the new follow focus knob, the Smooth 4 has a revised control panel for a more intuitive experience. A dedicated switch lets you change gimbal modes easily, without having to cycle through menu options. A trigger button gives you quick action mode changes. Start filming in one mode, hold the trigger down to access another, then let it go to return to your original shooting mode. This allows you to capture two different gimbal movements in one take.

Vertigo and POV Orbital Shot

Among the filmmaker style functions provided by the gimbal is the Vertigo Shot which helps you replicate the dolly/zoom effect. POV orbital shot allows you to capture footage from your own point of view, giving your audience a first-hand look at the action.

Time Lapse Modes and Object Tracking

Other supported features include Slow Motion, Freestyle Time Lapse, Motionlapse, Timelapse, and Hyperlapse. These modes let you control the flow of time in your videos so you can choose the perfect speed for each scene. Object Tracking works on people’s faces and other subjects so you can follow them easily as they move, keeping them in your frame as you record.

Versatile Recording Modes

Within the host of different gimbal modes is the PhoneGo function. Using this mode enables a superfast motor response for quicker movements and smooth transitions between scenes. The dedicated slider button on the handle lets you switch between Pan Following and Locking modes.

12 Hour Battery Life and Smartphone Charging

With up to 12 hours of battery life, you can easily record for long sessions. A battery level indicator lets you know how long you’ve got before your next recharge. Connect a separately available power pack via the USB Type-C port for even longer run time. You can even charge your Smartphone using the Smooth 4’s batteries with two-way charging to keep both your phone and gimbal running.

Includes Mini-Tripod and Carrying Case

The Zhiyun Smooth4 Smartphone gimbal comes with a mini tripod that’s perfect for group shots and time-lapse shots. It attaches to the bottom of the gimbal via its 1/4-inch thread. A handy carrying case offers great protection and hassle free transportation and storage.
