Zhiyun-Tech Smooth-X Overview

The Zhiyun Tech SMOOTH-X Smartphone Gimbal, in white, is ultra-compact and yet made even more compact by its folding design. However, while it's truly a pocket-size gimbal, it can also be extended out telescopically, in which case it functions as a gimbal plus selfie stick, allowing you to capture 2-axis stabilized footage and photos, including group shots, from more angles.

The telescoping bar extends approximately 10", bringing the total extended length of the SMOOTH-X to approximately 20". When the telescoping bar is retracted, the gimbal measures around 10" from end to end. It supports phones up to 3.5" via an adjustable mount, and it allows you to position your phone horizontally or vertically, for standard as well as portrait shots. After your phone is attached, the orientation is easily switchable at the press of a button. An included battery provides 4 hours of average runtime and even up to 5.5 hours in some applications with standby.

This user-friendly gimbal comes with a companion iOS/Android app which highly expands your capabilities. The app offers slow motion, time-lapse, panorama, and other creative features, and it enables you to track a subject automatically after getting the subject in the frame. It also has basic editing functions for your captured videos. You can efficiently trim shots, add music, add subtitles, and more.

In addition to the control functions in the app, the SMOOTH-X has a physical joystick and other controls that interact directly with your phone. Moreover, this intuitive gimbal supports intelligent gesture control. This feature lets you take a photo or start recording a video by displaying a "V" gesture or waving to the camera. The gimbal also provides a 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the bottom for attaching an optional mini tripod as an extension or stand. The gimbal battery is rechargeable using the included USB cable.

I am having trouble linking to my Samaung Galaxy S8. The app is installed. Why can't I connect?
Asked by: Ed
First, make sure that all firmware updates are done. To connect: 1. Power on the stabilizer and open the Bluetooth of smartphone. 2. Launch “ZY Cami” and tap the icon in the upper left corner to enter the device list and select the stabilizer to connect(The Bluetooth name of the stabilizer can be checked on the side of the phone clamp USER ID:XXXX). 3. Activation on the app is required for the first time using SMOOTH-X, otherwise the motor cannot work. Activation requires registration or log-in with ZHIYUN account, and the process should be conducted under network. 4. After the activation succeeds, the motor will work normally and the shooting interface will pop up automatically.

Does this gimbal have a removable battery, or is the battery non-removable? If the battery is readily removable, what size is it? (I do understand--per the description--that the battery can be charged via USB port.)
Asked by: Brad
The Zhiyun Smooth X has a built in battery, however, that battery could be charged on the go, with a portable usb power bank such as the RAVPower 10,000mAh power bank (SKU: RARPPB094) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1443881-REG/ravpower_rp_pb094_10000mah_power_bank.html
