Zhiyun-Tech Smooth Q2 Overview

Use the Smooth-Q2 gimbal stabilizer from Zhiyun-Tech to capture smooth handheld footage with your smartphone, and then store it in your pocket. This compact gimbal features a maximum load capacity of 9.2 ounces for phones up to 3.4" wide, meaning it can handle larger smartphones such as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, or phones with accessories such as cases and add-on lenses. The gimbal automatically balances your phone, and it doesn't require rebalancing when using a different phone.

The Smooth-Q2 features object-tracking, motion-lapse, and time-lapse modes, and for the vloggers and selfie-takers, it switches quickly into vertical mode. The Smooth-Q2 offers 360° pan, 305° tilt, and 265° roll rotation, and provides 360° barrel roll shots in vortex mode. The gimbal can remotely control your iOS or Android smartphone's camera via Bluetooth 5.0 to take photos and record videos without using the ZY Play app. The app can be used to transfer and edit video, change modes and settings, and upgrade the gimbal's firmware.

The Smooth-Q2's interface features a 5-way joystick, power and mode buttons, and a zoom control switch. You also have the choice of using the ZY Play app for full control of the gimbal. This stabilizer's 4500mAh removable 21700 battery provides up to an impressive 16 hours of runtime, and it charges to full in approximately three hours using a separately available charger. You can also charge your smartphone using the USB Type-C port on the handle while in use. The Smooth-Q2 features a 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the base of the handle to mount onto a monopod, tripod, or other support.

This is my second stabilizer from Zhiyun. Same great quality. The weight feels incredible on my hands. $50 was an amazing bargain for this gem from B&H. Love it.

Product is good but battery life is not that great.

Never honestly wanted a gimbal for my phone. Ordered this one as one of the daily deals and super glad I did!!! I did not even look at the more recent versions to compare features as this one does its job more than fine. And for the price, its well worth it. Small and compact so easy to take with. ONLY drawback I was able to come up with is.... The adjustable piece that holds onto your phone is not very wide. So if you have a phone case that has any sort of thickness to it, then you will have to pull it out of the case to use.

It looks like the works are out in front of the phone and that if you went wide angle the camera would pick up the gimbal. Anyone?
Asked by: Joseph
If using an iPhone 13 Pro in wide angle mode you will see the edge of the gimbal in the lower right side of frame. You will have to zoom in a bit to not see the gimbal in the frame and resume filming. If you do not want go thru this you should look for a different gimbal.
