I'd like to know if i could clamp a sony rx100 iii to it and have it still work. can anyone try it and lemme know if it works?

  • I've been looking for an option that allows for phone, gopro and my sony rx100 also. I don't think there is one. I think the Rx100 is too heavy. Let me know if you find one that does all three. Thanks.

What's the difference between the z1 smooth and the z1 smooth - c ?

  • They are not the same product... The smooth - c is the second, updated version. Look at the companies website.

Does this have a threaded mount for use with a very small point and shoot camera!?!?!?

  • To clarify: you want to know if there is a threaded screw to attach to the bottom threaded hole under a camera, instead of the gripping mount which clamps a smart phone---no, it does not. There is a threaded hole under the handle, which can be used to attach a tripod or longer pole, but there is not a screw to attach… see more To clarify: you want to know if there is a threaded screw to attach to the bottom threaded hole under a camera, instead of the gripping mount which clamps a smart phone---no, it does not.

However, if your camera is not too small (or too large) it will probably fit between the clamps. see less

Does this work with the Samsung S8+?

  • It fits the width OK . The length requires the counter weight to be put on. There is very little room for an external mike in the 3.5mm hole. You cannot turn the phone end for end because the clamp will be on the volume buttons

Battery life?

  • it has done about 2 hours to 1 n fifty minutes. So it does pretty good but using a iPhone 6. Using the iPhone 6 Plus n lens. It does about 1 hour n 15 minutes since it has to work hard to balance a larger phone. I love best video I done.

    I have bought the stick only version, the one that has not cable attachment it can as you see in the photo (with 2 batteries), I have extra batteries from all my other worthless purchases (beHolder version) bought 2 and returned both, they sent me 2 different versions and both could not even hold my iPhone 6 This is a exact copy of a Z1 Smooth from ZhiYun which cost 250$, I have both and dollar for dollar it performs exactly the same! same firmware works in both. I'm asked all the time what is this thing and when they see the replay of the video they are amazed at how smooth and stable the video is with the iPhone 6 plus optical stabilization it's even better at resolving the running action effects. it took about a month to get but when I got it I was ready to try it out and find out if it was worth every penny I paid for it. and it is. The only difference I could see between this unit and my 250$ z1 was the charger for the batteries and the cable the Z1 had a white charger and a flat cable to connect to the USB charger while the Neewer has a black matted charger with a basic USB cable I will upload my test video so you can see what it ended up performing like and judge for your self made with a iPhone 6 with Neewer Z1 with fw 1.32, raw footage so you know it's what you get exported to 480p.

    I've had this a few days and my expectations have been blown out of the water!! I'm a professional photographer and dabbles in videography (mostly for my children and family), so buying a $700-800 gimbal just doesn't make sense for me. I can get the few shots that I need off of this and I'm completely happy with it! You don't have balance it AT ALL!!! Did you read that?! AT ALL!! That alone should sell you. You attach your phone, power on, hold down the joystick for a second and it balances on it's own. AMAZING!! I'm completely happy with this. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again. And when it stops working - I'll purchase another one. That's how much I love it.

    This right here is amazing. I’m a photographer that dabbles in video and always use to get shaky video. I been to the apple store and best buy and their stabilizers are $300 plus. It’s kind of hard to justify that price point if you’re not serious about video. So when I found this one one amazon I was skeptical I have had it for about 3 to 4 months now and love it. There’s a little learning curve to it but, what isn’t right. But I got it down like in 3hrs and my videos are so smooth now. I couldn’t believe it. Another nice thing about this one is you can find an attachment for the Go Pro, it doesn’t come with it but it does exist so that means that this doesn’t just work with your smartphone. Would definitely recommend.

    Nice quality feel, smooth video with zero noise from the unit itself. Would give 5 star but out of the box mine will not follow in the vertical direction. I will update the firmware and try again. This is not a direction I'm usually I need of but it should still be an option of course. Video review and test footage: [...]

    This has to be one of the best products I have ever used. These stabilizers do an awesome job. I used it recently when going out of the country to film the beautiful scenery without coming back with jittery video that I can't even watch without feeling like I'm on a rollercoaster. The true testament came when riding in a taxi on a rocky road. The video shows the mirrors vibrating like crazy but the video footage was smooth as silk. Everyone swore it was a promo video! Just amazing footage. To fix the stabilizer is very easy. It already stabilizes the phone on its own but if it's off press the mode button 3 times. This will allow you to adjust it horizontally. Pressing it another 2 times allows you to move the camera up or down while filming. But it lasts a long time using it on and off for 5 hours. It never went dead! Don't think about it. Just purchase it! Arrived right on time.

    Great stabilizer especially for the price. Although sometimes it gets out horizontal balance. It's manageable to fix but it does get tedious especially in the middle of shooting. Other than that I think it's a great buy for the price.

    I have a note 4 and it fits fine without any case. I also don't use the counter weight too, but highly suggest to caliberate and update the firmware before using the gimbal. I gave it 4 stars because the instructions was quite difficult. Once you get pass everything and start using the gimbal. It does what its suppose to do. You can really take some nice steady video. Also for the price compare to other gimbal (kumbacam3). It's way cheaper and works fine. Great value and I also bought extra batteries for those longer shoots. Overall great product

    This is amazing. Lowest price of any of these gimbals. Love the joystick and choice of three stabilization modes. The one problem is that I can't imagine anyone putting their phone in this thing without some kind of a case on the phone, especially if it's an iPhone 6 Plus. While the mount feels solid, it grips the phone only about a third of the way up I have a thin clear silicone case on my phone which works well if it drops. In order to use the phone with the Z1 Smooth, I had to use black electrical tape to attach about an ounce of fishing weights to the backside of the mount. See attached pictures. As others have stated, it's extremely important when the Z1 Smooth is off that the phone is balanced in all three axises. Otherwise the motors will be working overtime and draining the battery.

    Very good and well functioning product. It did require some calibration through their software (on their website), but once calibrated, worked like a charm. The video comes out smooth as ever, considering the price. Take some time to get to know the functionalities, as it can be confusing to use it at first. Once you've "mastered" its functionalities, you're good to go!

    Works fabulous with my iPhone 7 plus. It's super balanced and just the weight of a case throws off the balance and my guess is that's why this didn't work for some people. The only thing I dislike is the counterweight doesn't allow for it to lay flat when not in use. So you have to take off the counterweight if you want it lay flat. It came calibrated perfectly and have used it w/ my 6s without the counterweight and then with the 7 plus with the counterweight and have had nothing but amazing results. Excellent battery life. Pictures with the weight and w/o the weight and how it effects storage.
