question

What is the height of each of these, in inches?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately I can't check the exact height since my weights are halfway across the world right now, but they are somewhere between 0.6-0.75 inches if I had to take a guess. Hopefully someone else can give you an exact measurement.

question

Can I use these with boom poles?
Asked by: Robert
These counterbalance weights are designed specifically for Opteka SteadyVid EX Stabilizers, like B&H #OPTSVEX. However it does have a 1/4 -20 female thread, so if you have such a stud available on your item you should be able to use it there as well.

question

Could this counterweight work on the Zhiyun smooth c smartphone gimbal?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Opteka Chrome Counterbalance Weights for SteadyVid EX are for a different kind of device all together from the Zhiyun Z1-Smooth-C 3-Axis Handheld Brushless Gimbal Smartphone Stabilizer. The Opteka is passive (motorless) while the Zhiyun is active (motorized). I would think the weight not only would make the Zhiyun react poorly but also possibly damage it.
