Does this work with the gopro hero 6 ?
Asked by: Steve
Hi! No it doesn't. Only works with smartphones. If you want a gimbal only for action cameras there are specific models of zhiyun but I recomend you zhiyun Crane M because works with both action cameras and smartphones. Hope you understood my awful english.

question

Can Zhiyun-Tech SMOOTH-3 hold Sony RX0 ?
Asked by: Saud
This product can work with Smartphones and select GoPro Hero Cameras. It more than likely will not work with an RX 0 as well. For that we recommend the Crane-M, B&H # ZHCRANEM, you will be able to use the Sony RX 0 on this device.https://bhpho.to/2lXuSBH
