Zhiyun Smooth 4 Gimbal Review

Zhiyun Smooth 4 is a 3-axis handheld gimbal built for smartphones and mobile photography.

This particular post contains few videos below which i recorded to show some of the problems with this over-priced and overhyped-gimbal, i hope my bad Zhiyun-Tech experience might help you to choose a better product.

Price Tag: $139 USD

Problems with App:

I used Zhiyun Smooth 4 Gimbal with Samsung-S8 & iPhone-8 part of the gimbal appeared on the right side of the footage. After physically switching the mode to manual, the Smooth 4 stayed on automatic until the settings were manually changed. The app was also semi problematic with the Android device; the app’s tracking feature proved to be incompatible on the Samsung S8. Zoom & Focus function also doesn’t work properly and looses connection constantly with the app where focus mode stops working at all on Android after first zoom and set itself automatically to auto mode focus mode.

Some more reviews worth watching

Zhiyun Smooth 4 is an unergonomic stick of dysfunctional functions which delivers mediocre stabilization.
