Overview Zhiyun Smooth 4 – Best stabilizer for $160 for a MOVIE on a smartphone

Zhiyun Smooth 4 this is no ordinary 3-axis electronic stabilizer for smartphones, it’s just a full professional tool for shooting high-quality videos using your phone. There are a large number of different control elements, which are very useful and simplify the process of shooting. And is this gimbal not much more expensive than their “brothers”, its price is about $160. And of course, buy this unit you will be able in the online store MotoStuff.

Unlike other Chinese regulators that were already on review (Moza Mini Mi, FeiyuTech Vimble 2), and which come in a convenient portable shockproof cases, Zhiyun Smooth 4 comes complete with a foam cover. It is, of course, can be used for transportation, but it will be less convenient than in the special case with handles. In the box, in addition to the stabilizer, you can find the cord to charge up a tripod and very high quality.

The body of the stabilizer is made of metal and plastic, the Whole structure well built, so no squeaks or no backlash. The design gimbal there is one very useful feature not found in competitors. This lock one of the axes of the stabilizer. From the first glance it may seem a useless thing but in fact it is a very necessary thing. Because when you shift stub in hand, especially when on the phone, the entire structure “ballyhaise” and thus it is possible to damage myself gimbal, and smartphone. And then you have recorded and nothing will break.

As I said in the beginning, Smooth on the housing 4 there are a large number of control elements. Among them there are already standard buttons start/spot recording, photograph, switch modes staba and menu, but a few convenient buttons that others do not have stabilizers. For example, in the back there are two keys: holding the top of the stub begins to track all the turns very quickly and dramatically, you can call it a “sport” mode; the bottom is responsible for enabling the tracking axis tilt, in regular mode it is locked. And if you shoot in full lockdown mode and hold down this button, stabilizator will follow all axes. It is very convenient because you can remove the lock all axes for maximum smoothness, and then, if your subject is out of frame, hold down this button and rotate the camera in the right direction.

But still the main feature Zhiyun Smooth 4 accurately be called a large ring on the side. It is responsible for zooming during photography or for focus control. Does this ring only through a special application ZY Play. Very sorry, but on Android this app does not work properly: some functions are activated after a time and it constantly freezes. On IOS there are no such problems, everything works correctly and smoothly.

There is no conventional joystick to control turns your smartphone camera. But the phone can be rotated in the desired direction by hand. As for me, this method is more rapid, accurate and convenient.

On the handle is a battery charge indicator, collection of usb type-c connector for charging, and one of the axes has a microUSB input for charging the phone.

Zhiyun Smooth 4 – super-fancy and super-functional stabilizer. If you are fond of shooting video on a smartphone, then buying this device would be fully justified. But if you are looking for something simple, a pure stream on Instagram or for shooting video travel, you may want to look in the direction Moza Mini-Mi or Vimble 2. They are cheaper and less fancy. But Smooth 4 will allow you to control all aspects of the shooting: want to change the camera position – hop and has already been done. Wanted to change the mode of staba – clicked on one button and can even not stop recording. And it is not fun, so to afford it can afford each.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
