Zhiyun Smooth-4 Smartphone Gimbal (Black)
Key Features
  • For Smartphones up to 7.4 oz
  • Large Left-Side Focus/Zoom Wheel
  • Quick-Response "PhoneGo" Mode
  • Dolly/Zoom "Vertigo" Effect Mode
The Smooth-4 Smartphone Stabilizer from Zhiyun-Tech, in black, has been designed to provide cine-style functions to content creators using their mobile phones for video capture. When used with the free, downloadable ZY Play app, the control panel enables Android and iOS users to control both gimbal and smartphone camera functions such as focus, zoom, time-lapse, and still photo settings. The Smooth-4's controls reduce the need to touch your phone's screen, thereby minimizing unintended jostling while recording. A dedicated "Vertigo" function emulates the perspective-shifting, dolly/zoom effect dear to many filmmakers. Compared to the ZT Smooth-3, the Smooth-4's controls are more ergonomically laid out and better labeled with icons. The Smooth-4 also has a significantly larger focus/zoom wheel, a PhoneGo mode for quickly grabbing the action, multiple time-lapse functions, and object tracking. With the ability to support smartphones weighing up to 7.4 oz and measuring up to 3.35" high, the Smooth-4 is compatible with almost any mobile phone.

Hi Is it possible to attach a 3.5mm mic socket into a samsung s8 plus audio so that the Smooth 4 still works so that the audio quality can be boosted?
Asked by: Michael
I'm afraid not. Gimbals like this only allow you to balance the phone, you will not be able to attach a microphone as well.
