Zhiyun Smooth Q2 review and test video for the smallest 3-axis smartphone gimbal by Loc Cheung. The new gimbal should be available for retail sale in November or early December of 2019 for the Christmas gift buying season.
The Zhiyun Tech SMOOTH-Q2, a pocket-sized gimbal designed for smartphones. Zhiyun brings us its newest gimbal that is smaller than the DJI Osmo 2 and Osmo 3, holding a 4500mAh battery for up to 17 hours of usage, with a number of features including object tracking, time-lapse and 360-degree POV mode.
SMOOTH-Q2 Mobile Gimbal is built from CNC-machined aluminum alloy and is super small, able to fit within a big pants pocket. The gimbal has a five-way joystick and support for shooting in landscape and portrait modes. You can also directly control the phone’s native camera app over Bluetooth.
SMOOTH-Q2 can be used with an accessory by way of a 1/4″ threaded screw hole on the bottom of the gimbal handle. Zhiyun states the gimbal’s motor is strong with a maximum payload capacity up to 260g (9oz) and a run time of up to 3,000 hours of work load. Users can use SMOOTH-Q2 to shoot in motion-lapse, time-lapse, POV, vortex, multimode and object-tracking modes.
