Power in Simplicity

SMOOTH-X is a new foldable smartphone gimbal which reaffirms Zhiyun’s dedication to leading innovation in gimbal design. By rotating the vertical arm, users can turn their gimbal into a palm-sized stylish gadget that is small enough to toss into a backpack or even a pocket. Thanks to the unique design, the axis never blocks the view even in ultra-wide angle shooting.

SMOOTH-X lets users explore the wider world from a broader perspective with a built-in aluminum telescopic rod. It can extend the reach up to 260mm. Now users can include more friends, get more views, and have extra fun.

Simplicity is king, and SMOOTH-X provides the smoothest operating experience because it is unimaginably simple to use. Users can shoot, film, and control zooming with the handy operation panel. The multifunctional M button allows users to capture moments in versatile modes, and switch between landscape and portrait in a breeze.

SMOOTH-X is very beginner-friendly, allowing direct control of phone cameras with Bluetooth connection. Four-hour runtime and direct charging with a power bank keep users powered up for creation.

Intelligent Shooting

Newly added intelligent gesture control feature makes SMOOTH-X a perfect companion for solo travel or group shots. Just make a V gesture or wave to the camera to start taking a photo/video without any timer settings.

Wherever people go, SMOOTH-X follows. Simply frame the desired object of the video shoot, and then let SMOOTH-X do the rest. Slow motion, immersive timelapse and panorama are offered in the function palette. 

Awesome & Easy Edit

ZHIYUN’s ZY Cami is a dedicated app especially for the SMOOTH-X. ZY Cami provides a system that is smart, friendly, and easy but also offers advanced professional functions. Now there is no more need for tedious, tiring editing – SMART filmmaking mode offers a palette of preset story templates integrated with customized music, camera motions and special effects. Create a film in minutes.

To give users even more control, professional editing software is now available in ZY Cami. Everything a user could possibly need is here: cutting, clipping, adding music, stickers, subtitles, transitions, beauty mode and more.

Zhiyun SMOOTH-X will be available for purchase by the end of May at ZHIYUN Official Store at US$59.99.
