  • 1Description

The Zhiyun-Tech Smooth-II is a 3-axis handheld gimbal stabilizer for most smartphones (measuring between 2.2 and 3.2" in width). The Smooth-II offers unlimited 360° rotation along the pan axis and allows for vertical and panoramic image capture. It features a 5-way joystick right at your fingertips that allows you to quickly switch between modes and perform other controls.

The Smooth-II starts up very quickly to full functionality and is designed with short-circuit, reverse, and over-discharge protection to ensure continued safe start-up. This stabilizer comes with an approximately 5-hour runtime battery and also charges your phone during operation.

The Smooth-II also supports wireless control via a free-download iOS/Android app or optional ZW-BO1 Bluetooth remote control unit. The app lets you perform functions such as switching between the front and main cameras, switching between photo and video modes, setting focus, and recording. The Smooth-II also has a 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the bottom that allows you to use it with support gear such as monopods.

    Zhiyun-Tech ZYSII reviews

    Smooth-II 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for Smartphones is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for just a Smart Phone The device is great for just a smart phone. There is an app available for the iPhone, which make it easy to control the gimbal 3 way axis. In addition, there is also another app by Zhiyun to record videos and using the buttons on the gimbal to control the app. There is also an app for a MacBook to calibrate and update the firmware, incase a Windows machine is not available. The support from Zhiyun is good and responsive. The limitations from the support is just the language barrier and the time difference so far. The clamp itself is spring loaded and doesn't have a safety lock. It is attached to the gimbal and cannot be removed. It is able to support an iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus too. The iPhone 6 will need to use the counterweight to balance better. It will require the phone to be balance further to the left. The battery is a single green Panasonic 18650, and Zhiyun sells extra if needed. The battery charges within the gimbal using a usb cable. The motors are a forth generation and works well with just a smart phone. If you start to add attachments, then the motors will need to work harder and require more power. Attachments, will make it difficult to balance. If adding the moondog lens, it will exceed the counterweight and difficult to balance. The motors will try its best to stabilize. The counterweight is 50 grams. Anymore weight, and the arm will not rise. Exceeds max load. Max safe load probably 200 grams. The body of the gimbal is excellent. Very nice finish all metal frame. Can easily attached a sony VCT-HM1 to the body to mount an external microphone or other attachments. The bottom of the gimbal supports other 1/4 accessories. Works great with 1/4 desk tripod and looks professional. Great for reducing bouncing effect in video for a smoother footage. There is still a small bounce but barely noticeable. Definitely a step up from the manual steady cams. Great to play around with a smart phone. More serious gear will require stronger motors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with this cellphone gimbal For me this was a very good introduction to stabilized video, primarily shooting stills over the past 15 years or so. I want to do something more serious with the Crane and an interchangeable lens camera, but this allows a more casual attempt at decent light video paired with my iPhone 6 Plus as I get up to speed with video in general. Setup to balance it is easy, and the rest is the all up to me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product for professional use I am a professional videographer that use traditional gear. Recently we wanted to venture in cel phone prodution for small projects. The zhiyun-tech is an essential component enabling smooth shots otherwise conveniently unobtainable.
