The top two selling smartphone gimbals of 2018 are tested and reviewed on the streets of Hong Kong. This Battle Royale between the new DJI Osmo Mobile 2 and the perennial champ Zhiyun Smooth-Q went down in the Tai Ping Shan (Mountain of Peace) densely-packed neighborhood.
This smartphone gimbal battle was hosted by Tuber ‘TECH CHINA’ who took a cinematic approach when reviewing these low cost videography tools.
Zhiyun Smooth-Q notes:
Best weight payload is 75g to 200g. If not putting something over 75g on, it will not balance correctly.
For heavy phones like Samsung Note 8, please balance the gimbal well before power on.
For phones over 200g, we recommend Zhiyun Smooth 3 and Smooth 4 .
iPhone 8 plus is NOT supported, please choose Zhiyun Smooth 3 and Smooth 4.
DJI Osmo Mobile 2 Notes:
Easily shoot smooth, cinematic video with your Phone
Get started quickly—just snap in your iPhone, then shoot, share, or livestream with DJI GO app
ActiveTrack automatically keeps you in the shot as you move
Shoot timelapses like a pro with just a few taps on the screen
Take long exposures without a tripod
Landscape and Portrait panoramas stitch together multiple photos for a seamless HD image
Battery supports up to 15 hours of continuous use and can charge your Phone
