An affordable, pro-performance, real pocket-sized gimbal
Suitable for day-to-day filmmaking

Smartphone gimbals are compact, but have never been compact enough to fit into your pocket for day-to-day shooting needs. That is why Zhiyun thought it was time for a pro-performance gimbal that can easily fit into your pocket. The Smooth-Q2 is super low-profile which makes it especially useful for vlogging or street snapshots.

Zhiyun completely redesigned the smartphone gimbal motor and structure to make the smallest mobile gimbal ever, without sacrificing performance. And they also utilized an aerospace-grade aluminum alloy body to enhance the strength and stability of the gimbal. It's smaller and stronger!

And they didn't stop at shrinking the size...

Zhiyun also made the Smooth-Q2 incredibly user-friendly, supporting your native phone's camera app via Bluetooth connection, with a 1-sec quick install clip with pre phone balance. Smooth-Q2 is functional right out of the pocket.

Smooth-Q2 is the pocket size mobile gimbal device with a trendy yet minimalistic design. With its reduced size, the smooth silicon casing gives Smooth-Q2 a comfortable grip when you need to hold it for extended periods.

Easy Setup for On-the-Go

Thanks to the quick release latch design, Smooth-Q2 transforms your smartphone into a professional camera with split-second speed. Providing an easy transition between standby mode and shooting mode, Smooth-Q2 is ideal for street snapshots and capturing precious moments. Most importantly, Smooth-Q2 does not require any re-balancing when the clip is re-attached. With the smart quick latch design, Smooth-Q2 is hassle free and provides greater convenience for filmmakers. 

User Friendly

Smooth Q2 simplified all the controls into one LED indicator, two buttons and one 5-way control joystick, which is intuitive and convenient. The common ¼’’ screw thread fitting makes Q2 compatible with most add-on accessories on the market. Combining the new vertical shooting function, it is versatile and convenient for vlogging and live broadcasting. Plus, the sleek cylinder-shaped body can balance by itself (with phone mounted) without a tripod.

Direct Phone Camera Control

With Zhiyun's advanced technology, Smooth-Q2 can control iOS and Android native cameras via Bluetooth connection without using the ZY Play app.

Enhanced Motor Durability

The Smooth-Q2's motor durability has improved significantly with a maximum payload of 260g. Additionally, with its improved durability, Q2's motor can work 3000 hours continuously. 

Improved Body Material

Built from aerospace grade aluminum alloy material, Smooth-Q2‘s arm and motor have greatly improved in durability and reliability, with enhanced texture. Smooth-Q2 is a truly compact device that can support heavier payloads, offers higher stability and better performance, and produces better image quality. While the construction material has improved, Q2's weight has even reduced to 380g (excluding battery). Naturally small, but with pro-performance and better stability.

All-Day Battery Life

Smooth-Q2's battery life lasts for 16 hours continuously under normal filming conditions, which is 30% longer than the previous generation. In addition, Smooth-Q2 has a micro-USB port that allows it to work as a power bank to charge your phone, so you will never have to worry about missing any important moments. Moreover, Q2 uses a common 21700 lithium ion rechargeable battery that powers Q2 seamlessly. It can be taken out separately for charging through a charging device.

* Other 21700 batteries can also be used, however it is recommended that you use the original batteries provided with the Q2.

Relive the Moment

Use ZY Play app with your smartphone to unlock different filming modes. ZY Play app offers a plethora of features, including intuitive editing functions and various manual settings such as ISO and shutter speed. With such a powerful creative tool, you can achieve DSLR quality shots with your phone.

Smaller and Stronger

The smallest mobile gimbal in the Zhiyun family

Unlike any other gimbal on the market, you don't need to fold the Smooth-Q2 to make it small. It's only 204mm long, and ready to fit in your pocket or handbag. Built from aluminum alloy, Smooth-Q2 has yielded higher strength and reliability. The handle is covered with soft silicone for increased comfort. Featuring 6 modes, Smooth-Q2 has demonstrated functionality. It supports direct control of iOS and Android phone cameras for photo and video shooting. Smooth-Q2 is a magical filming tool in the palm of your hand, perfectly suited to any lifestyle.

Quick Release Latch

Attach and Detatch in an Instant

The innovative quick release latch design and handy phone clamp allow you to take your smartphone on and off in a split-second. Instant shoting is at your fingertips.

Simplicity meets functionality

Switch among versatile modes with one button. Smooth-Q2 integrates Vortex Mode, which gives filmmakers the freedom to create 360° barrel shots in any direction. Newly added Full-Range POV Mode allows 360° synchronous movement on three axes, providing immersive video effects.


Smooth Q2 supports 360 degrees of rotation and has 3-axis stabilization, containing a Tilt motor, a Roll motor and a Pan motor. These allow Smooth-Q2 to create a lot of crazy preset movements to make your video more dynamic. Experts and enthusiasts alike can explore the unlimited potential that can be achieved with a mobile phone.

Object Tracking

Smooth-Q2 provides advanced object tracking function, locking the person/object after it is selected. Minimal delay means Smooth-Q2 is always ready and remains steady. 

Dolly Zoom

With Smooth-Q2, you no longer need professional filming equipment to achieve cinematic effects. Q2 allows you to create famous Hitchcock dolly zoom effects with your mobile device.

Motion-Lapse & Time-Lapse

Smooth-Q2 has advanced time lapse, motion lapse and hyper lapse functions that allow you to capture and seize time in order for you to exhibit it any way you like.

Multimode & Vortex Mode

Smooth-Q2 has advanced Vortex Mode built-in, which gives filmmakers the freedom to create infinite 360-degree barrel shots.


Smooth-Q2 offers a full-range POV mode for smooth 360° synchronous movement on all three axes, offering a more immersive experience.
