More on the Focus Pull & Zoom Capability:
A more professional and fine tuning, controllable hand wheel is built in the Smooth 4, giving you the upgraded experience of smooth operations. This will allow you to zoom in or out as you want to make close-up scenes. When pressing the FN switch button, the hand wheel is launched into a focus puller, helping you get better precision focus changes in real time to create better films.
The Zhiyun Smooth 4 Also Has Timelapse, Motionlapse, Hyperlapse:
Smooth 4 makes deep optimization of these.

Motionlapse – Is a technique in time-lapse photography that allows the photographer to create motion shots.
Hyperlapse – A hyperlapse is just like a timelapse, but with a broader range of motion. as in you can move the camera a long distance.
