A body made out of metal and hard plastic gives the Smooth 4 a classic yet very sexy look. Here is a video displaying this beautiful design.
Focus Pull & Zoom Capability
The more professional and delicated handwheel is built in Smooth 4, bringing you the unprecedented experience of smooth operation. You can zoom in or out as you want to take close-up shots.By pressing the FN switch button, the handwheel is configured into a focus puller, helping you achieve high-precision focus changes in real time to create creative shots.
Less is More
Smooth 4 is designed with a slider on its control panel and a trigger button on its back, to easily recognize and switch between different gimbal modes
The modes are standby mode, pan-following mode, full-follow mode, phonego mode for instant scene transition, and locking mode .
Zhiyun Smooth 4
There are advances being made in science and technology everyday, and a good example of this is the control panel. The Control Panel gives you unlimited access to your phone with out touching the screen.
Timelapse and hyper-timelapse expert
Smooth 4 makes deep optimization on Timelapse and supports all kinds of advanced shooting techniques. It can capture more details from a broader perspective easily overlooked in daily lives. Here is an example of timelapse footage from the second floor of a London bus.
Object tracking and Face recognition
Smooth 4 can produce smooth footage and also track objects including but not limited to human faces with much higher precision. You can frame the object you want to track on the screen, and the stabilizer can do the rest. Shooting has never been so easy, but now the Smooth 4 does your job for you!

I was thinking of ways to make my vlogs, music videos and home videos a little better & stumbled upon iPhone gimbals. When I visited the Zhiyun website, I was a little skeptical at first (the website looks nice, but the videos on the site kinda made me uneasy for some reason), but I placed the order anyway. I downloaded the app, read the manuals, watched some tutorials for it on YouTube & am happy to say that this thing was a worthwhile purchase.
I would say (which you'll find out after watching the tutorials on YouTube) it is VERY important to make sure the phone is BALANCED in the gimbal. I had a few instances that the gimbal would turn on, hold my phone for a minute or so & then tip over, triggering a pink light!! After finding out what was causing it (the issue of balance) and fixing it, I haven't had a problem with it yet (besides the app, which works very well, but needs some work).
If you're a novice or not really into video that much, this could still come in handy for you, but I wouldn't rush you to spend the money. On the contrary, if you're a pro (which I'm not) & can afford it, I'd say go for it (but still research it beforehand). Btw it is way better than the DJI Osmo 2
If you considering to buy a smartphone gimbal. This is exact product what you looking for.
Very reasonable price. Works reliable and have some unique features.
Especially, I'm very satisfied with 3 things.
1. Zoom wheel - FOUR THUMBS UP(2 are mine, 2 are my son's).
2. Long battery life.
3. Smartphone charging slot located on tilt axis arm.
As you already know there's no perfect product, but ZY improving it.
For examble, it has pan axis drifting issue on lock mode on first firmware. But I talked to GE Tech customer service. They resolved the issue by recent firmware update.
Also "ZY play(smartphone app)" didn't have calibration function for Smooth 4, but it also solved on recent version.
3 word conclusion.
Thanks GE tech for nice product.
The Smooth4 came well packed into a nice box. Everything looks very good.
When i put the gimbal for the first time out of the box, that was a really good feeling. The weight is quit good and all buttons are perfect to use. So I put my IphoneX in it and push the power button for some seconds.
The gimbal started and connected with my phone. The gimbal and the Zhiyun App are so simple to use. Its perfect for beginners or pro's.
I really love the Zhiyun Smooth 4. it works much better than for example the DJI Gimbal.
From me 5*, buy this Gimbal, you will not regret it.
