One thought on “2018 New Gimbal Shootout – Zhiyun Smooth 4 vs DJI OSMO Mobile 2 vs FEIYU Vimble 2 vs FreeVision Vilta M”
I love my Smooth 4 gimbal but the ZY play app is driving me nuts. Zhiyun should be fined for putting out such bad software. That has put me off ever buying one of their gimbals again. I hope other people have had better results with their gimbals.
