We’ve come to a time where cameras are in everyones pocket. Live video apps like Snapchat, IG stories, and Facebook Live are the new television. Most people think phone cameras are all they need so here I am testing a smart phone gimbal because of those facts right there. Come hang out with me as I do a thorough review of the Zhiyun Tech Smooth Q smartphone gimbal. Because of its convenience, Im bringing it everywhere like Muir Woods, Lombard St, and Golden Gate Park. Eat your heart out Bay Area.

eui says:

1:46 ok, first of all, why the fuck are you unboxing in a public place where it’s obviously noisy? don’t blame that guy for talking to someone on the phone

Paul says:

Thank you. My test of the Smooth Q

Alejandro Garcia says:

Hella. Won me over. Good review.

Julio Arroyo says:

I have the smooth q but why would anyone want to record in portrait mode?

shin g says:

The world has changed by GIMBAL.

Jatt Production says:

Love you

Thomas Cory says:

Awesome ! You helped me make up my mind.

Jake The Outdoorsman says:

I have Galaxy S8 with a case on it. It fits but the weight combined according to the stats is 196g. The Smooth Q says max payload is 200g. Will 196g make the gimbal sluggish?


Just smooth… 🙂

capt fahad says:

Are u a homeless if not then why unboxed outside… Worst Unboxing ever 😉 sorry…

John Staley says:

Soderberg is a professional phone shooter.

Blank blank says:

What’s the charging time for this? It says 2.5 hours on the manual but it also says when charging is complete it shows a green light. I charged it for way longer than 2.5 hours but there’s still no green light. I’m not sure if I’m overcharging it or if my device is defective.

M.I Abid says:

ur almond shape face is a killer.

Scott Clements says:

This Sucker, now that was funny lol. I got this Smooth Q, works pretty good for me and I Got a old Note 4 but I love it and to me it’s better than most of the new phones.

Dizzle says:

You say they claim it’s okay to use in the rain and snow. I just looked at the User Guide that came with mine and it clearly says prevent contact with any kind of liquid. Rain is a liquid. Snow also is a form of liquid. My question, though is very basic. How do you know when it’s done charging? Another video said when the yellow light turns off it’s done charging. I’ve been charging mine for a while and that damn light is still on. It started off blinking yellow. Now, it’s solid yellow and no longer blinking, but the light is still on. Been charging it for over an hour.

capt fahad says:

Well make a review about moza mini

Nice review…oh btw you’re cute.

Libby Hall says:

Hi, thanks for sharing. I have a Note 8 and the tracking works well with my phone. Once you click on the camera for there’s a dot with for corners surrounding it. Perhaps they just updated it but I’ve been using mine since I bought it in 2017.
