The Zhiyun-Tech Smooth-Q3 combo version additionally includes a wrist strap and a protective bag for safer use and easier transport and storage.

The Smooth-Q3 is a compact folding 3-axis stabilizer for smartphones, designed with a built-in LED video light with three selectable brightness levels. It provides stabilized motion along the pan, tilt, and roll axes to let you capture smooth, professional-looking video with your phone. The gimbal easily switches between portrait and landscape modes at the press of a button, allowing you to shoot both cinematic and social media videos while the LED light illuminates your subjects. The phone holder supports smartphones up to 3.5" wide, covering most phones.

The gimbal's capabilities are enhanced via a companion ZY Cami iOS/Android app, which allows you to set up creative movements such as Simplified Dolly Zoom. The app also offers functions such as Advanced Smart Tracking and one-tap live streaming. The gimbal has an ergonomic design with a nonslip handle, and it runs for up to 15 hours on the included battery and fully recharges in approximately three hours. A mini tripod is also included and can be used as a tripod or handgrip extension to allow you to hold the gimbal with two hands for better control of it.

Built-In Video Light
The Smooth-Q3 features an integrated fill light with a touch button. It can be rotated 180° to light up your subject (or yourself when vlogging) from all angles. Three adjustable brightness levels allow you to set the right amount of light for different shooting scenarios.
SmartFollow 3.0
With just a single tap in the companion iOS/Android app, you can activate the SmartFollow feature to automatically follow a moving subject. (This feature may not work on some phones. Please refer to the phone compatibility list on the Zhiyun website for more info.)
Gesture Control
The gimbal can be set up to recognize a hand gesture, such as holding up five fingers, to begin shooting.
Instant Dolly Zoom
With just a few settings applied in the included app, the Smooth-Q3 can dolly and zoom towards your subject automatically as you walk forward, adding high-end production value to your shots.
Zoom Rocker
Easily zoom in and out using a zoom rocker positioned on the side of the gimbal.
MagicClone Pano
Clone yourself to show different sides of you. With MagicClone Pano, you can shoot multiple images and arrange them on the same screen.
Panorama options include landscape mode, portrait mode, front and rear camera, 180°, 240°, and 3x3, with gesture control supported.
SMART Editing
Enhance your videos with editing templates, background music, subtitles, stickers, special effects, reverse motion, and various filters via the mobile app.
Live Streaming
The mobile app allows you to live stream to various popular platforms, with select effects applicable during the stream.

Zhiyun Smooth Q3 Reviews

Do not waste your money!

By Stuart
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-25

I bought this to see if I wanted to start using a gimbal with my cell phone for better videos. The price was attractive and I bought this item. It has never operated properly! I have managed to link it to my phone 1 time and the rest of the time it won't link up. It has also pressed to have me down load all kinds of software updates - it has seemed very sketchy from the start and I have given up trying to use it! Don't waste your money!!!

Perfect stabilizer

The Smooth Q3 is a very good stabilizer, very decent overall, there's a zoom slider on the side , built-in battery lasts for 7 hours of normal use, and up to 15 hours and is recharged via USB-C. It's relatively compact when collapsed. it does have a built-in fill light, which helps when lighting conditions are less than ideal. and an affordable price.

Poorly made but cheap

In less than 2 months and without using it heavily, one of the joints of the tripod is already broken. I also experience difficulty in balancing a slightly bigger handphone. And the accompanied software still have a number of bugs. I bought because of some reasonable reviews and the price for my entry point into gimbal systems. I would definitely do a better search for a proper gimbal for my mirrorless camera.

For quick projects when you don't have a lot of time to set up, this will still give you stability and ease of you. And for a low price!

New product with a dead battery

By Santiago

I bought the combo, when I received the product I put the battery on charge for about 3 hours. After that, I tried to use and as soon as I turned on the product, it turned off. I also tried to test it connected via usb but the same thing happened. Since I'm from Paraguay and I can't return the product (shipping will be more expensive than buying), I had no other alternative but to replace the batteries with similar ones thanks to the work of a local electronic technician. It's my first purchase from this store and I don't know if all the products they sell are like this or it's a Zhiyun brand problem.

Great For the Price

Bought this to shoot some video ads for work. Works great with an iPhone 11 Pro. Feels Light and flimsy but works well. Well worth the Price.

Almost everyone who has a smartphone will likely have a phone case. What is the maximum thickness can the gimbal hold?
Asked by: Daniel
Zhiyun-tech does not specify a thickness. This product is designed to hold phones without a case. It can accommodate some low profile/thin cases. If you have a thick case we recommend removing it before mounting it on the stabilizer.
