Shootout between the top mobile Smartphone Gimbals in early 2018. In the stabilization test they look at the Zhiyun Smooth-Q, DJI OSMO Mobile 1, DJI OSMO Mobile 2, and the Freefly Movi.
Smartphone Gimbals Tested:
Zhiyun Smooth-Q: The top selling phone or camera gimbal of all time. In total sells there is not another powered stabilizer with close to the same amount of market saturation.
DJI OSMO Mobile 1: At double the price of the Smooth-Q this is a higher quality build, metal clone that lacks some of the features of the Smooth-Q.
DJI OSMO Mobile 2: The new and sort of improved version of the Mobile 1. It is cheaper that the first version and adds a threaded tripod mount but is now made of molded plastic like the Smooth-Q.
FreeFly Movi: This is a bit of an oddball in the test. At three times the price of the Smooth-Q it is the highest priced. It also has a unique L-shaped design that sets it’s self apart from the other three. Big downside for many is this only works for Apple Phones. No Android support.
