Despite being smaller and more compact it can still take a bigger payload than previous model, the Q2. The new Smooth Q3 is 20% lighter but can still take a bigger payload.
The gimbal is compatible with most premium smartphones out on the market even with a bumper attached. The adjustable holder can be set to a maximum width of 90 mm.
A new intuitive button layout leads to overall smoother operation. For example, by triple tapping the trigger switching between portrait and landscape modes could not be easier, while ultra-wide-angle shooting means that vast landscapes are just as easy to capture as low-angle shots.
On the top of the gimbal you find a 180 °Rotatable fill light with touch button that adds an extra light to your videos. The light can be set in three different strengths.
The gimbal not only provides better video recordings with a smoother and more professional look. It also adds lots of creative possibilities in filmmaking with 17 SmartMode built-in templates, speeding up creation of videos that are shot on a regular basis. With the ZY Cami Editor, users can spice up videos with customised templates adding an array of music, special effects and filters.
Additional new features include gesture control, SmartFollow 3.0 Object Tracking, an instant Dolly Zoom, and MagicClone Pano which is operated by a single press trigger button to mark the target and activate smart following.
With the new gimbal Zhiyun also introduces ZY Prime, a subscription where members get access to more features such as more shooting templates and ZY Remo remote control feature that lets a second device control the smartphone on the gimbal.
