Description

Hey guys, Mark here and this little guy is the Zhiyun Smooth X gimbal, from June, it’s a two axis gimbal that will stabilize your smartphone across the x, and then access but not the why it does a great job overall which we’ll show you in just a bit with some test shots but first, as always, let’s talk about that design I love the light gray color.

Zhiyun Smooth X review

It looks, and it feels great in the hand, despite being made from mostly plastic, it doesn’t feel cheap at all, despite its $60 price tag, and if you get the kit for 70 bucks. It also comes with this cool tripod extension that you can mount to the bottom with the quarter 20 mount underneath the gimbal comes all folded up and to be honest, while it’s cool that you can fit this into a very small form factor.

The folding and unfolding of this thing is super unintuitive and it feels like you’re trying to break the gimbal every time you fold it away so I usually just leave it on folded, it’s not that big. Anyway, it’s got a zoom toggle on the side for when you’re connected to your smartphone, a joystick for controlling the X and Z motors, a button to change the shooting mode, and a button to start recording video.

This new X charges via USB C which is awesome, and it has a power button and battery level indicator right here on the side, other than how it folds away I have no complaints about the design of this thing. It’s very well built, while staying lightweight at 250 grams, and it looks great. My all time favorite thing about the design of this gimbal though is this neat little party trick.

Yeah, it’s got a built in selfie stick pole. This comes in handy, all the time because on a lot of smartphones. The front facing camera doesn’t get all that wide so when you have this extension on, it allows you to get a lot more in the frame. The motors are housed at the end of the pole so the gimbal still functions like normal.

t also allows me to get this really cool, low to the ground shot without having to bend over to get the gimbal working for the first time you actually need to download the zy Cammy app and set it up via Bluetooth, which I really don’t like I mean it should be able to work straight out of the box.
