The Zhiyun Tech SMOOTH-X Smartphone Gimbal Combo Kit, in gray, includes the gimbal, a mini tripod, charging cable, and carry bag. The SMOOTH-X gimbal is ultracompact 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 a selfie stick, allowing you to capture 2-axis stabilized footage and photos, including group shots, from more angles.

Zhiyun Smooth-X Overview

The Zhiyun Tech SMOOTH-X Smartphone Gimbal Combo Kit, in gray, includes the gimbal, a mini tripod, charging cable, and carry bag. The SMOOTH-X gimbal is ultracompact 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 a 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 battery is rechargeable using the included USB cable. The included tripod attaches to a 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the bottom of the gimbal and can be used as an extension or a stand.

Zhiyun Smooth-X Reviews

Zhiyun is the worst

By Paul
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-13

This unit is so-so and got it for $20. Instructions are horrible and needed a magnifying glass just to read the instructions. Couldnt get it to work and by fluke I rotated the phone holder and it started up. I have another Zhiyun that arrived DOA, no charge no power. Their cust service is almost non existent and had to pay for a dead on arrival product to get fixed. If your thinking Zhiyun, spend a few extra and get a DJI that actually has decent customer service and rep.

Pretty good finish considering the price I got, performance is good enough for gimbal beginners, a weak point is user guide that is not very elaborate for first users to be able to understand

I was unable to link the gimbal to any of my devices. I contacted support as suggested when I recieved the error message. They told me to try another device. I subsequently tried 5 android and 1 ios device without success. They have not responded since.

Complicated Gimbal

By Raju
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-10

The app is not intuitive to use and consumes a lot of battery if you install it on your phone. The usage of this gimbal for any pro-sized is really tuff. if you plan to use this for like a selfy stick you may hate yourself. Packaging and everything is good, but the point is if the usage is not easy what is the point of this gimbal?

Horrible

This is the latest tested phone list from Zhiyun https://bit.ly/3QIW98i While the One Plus 8 Pro is not on the tested list this new phone should work with the Zhiyun-Tech SMOOTH-X Smartphone Gimbal since the two phones are very similar in size and weight.

I am having trouble linking to my Samaung Galaxy S8. The app is installed. Why can't I connect?
Asked by: Edward
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.

Asked by: Jonathan
Although the iPhone 13 Pro Max has slightly different dimensions to the compatible iPhone 11 Pro Max and weighs 240 grams, it should balance on the Zhiyun-Tech SMOOTH-X Smartphone Gimbal Combo Kit (Black), and it does fit within the 260 gram payload.

Asked by: Catalina
The Zhiyun SMOOTH-X will support smartphones up to 3.5" wide. The Samsung S22 Ultra is 77.9mm wide. This equates to about 3.1". You should be in the clear with this combination.
