A Sony A6000 Camera On Zhiyun Smooth Q Smartphone Gimbal

Sony A6000 Camera On Zhiyun Smooth Q Gimbal
I would have thought mounting a Sony A6000 Camera On Zhiyun Smooth Q Smartphone Gimbal would not work. The Zhiyun Smooth Q was built for smartphones but people want to mount mirrorless cameras on them. This guy pulled off mounting a Sony a6000 APS-c camera with Sony 16mm f/2.8 Wide-Angle lens. And it works well.

Many people have wondered if they could mount there small camera on the Zhiyun Smooth-Q gimbal. Well tuber ‘silversurfer1’ has just done that. He has hacked his Smooth q mount to except a way over max payload Sony a6000 mirrorless camera.

With the help of his 3D printer for the homemade brackets, he used heavy washers, bolts and free time to get this set-up to work. He even added a mirror to the top to help with shooting in selfie mode.

This gimbal build would probably work with the Sony a6300, a6500 and other small mirrorless cameras like the Panasonic GX85, GX850, and others. He has plans to post the 3D printing plans soon and I will post a link to them when he does.

  1. Hello,
    I saw your text about possibility of mounting Sony A6000 Camera On Zhiyun Smooth Q. Is it possible to buy somewhere this mount ?

    Many thanks

    1. There are links to where you can buy mounts in the video’s description on youtube. The a6000 body without a lens is more than double the weight capacity of the Smooth Q gimbal. Even if you get it balanced perfectly it will burn the motors up on the Smooth Q if used long.
