Review: Zhiyun Smooth 4 Phone Stabilizer for Filmmakers

June 10, 2018

 

 

The new Zhiyun Smooth 4 is loaded with features most others are certainly going to copy.

 

You can set any number of tracking control points and get automated focus and zoom, which is fantastic!

 

Other features include manual exposure, focus, ISO, and white balance; 1/4" bottom mounting, filters, walking motor adjustment to take out that up and down so common to stabilizers, no touching the phone screen (everything controlled from the gimbal), on-screen gimbal and phone battery indicators, resolution control, flash control, HDR control, auto face detection and tracking, panorama, multiple exposure, long exposure, slow motion, time-lapse, motion time-lapse, controllable dolly zoom (vertigo effect), and more.

 

The AMAZING thing is it is priced at $139! Links below.
