I just upgraded to a new iPhone 8 and purchased the newly released Zhiyun Smooth 4 Smartphone Gimbal mount. This short video is my first use of both items for shooting a video, as a quick test, using default settings. The video was shot using the Zhiyun ZY Play app, and edited on the same iPhone 8 using iMovie for iOS. It’s a little rough, but I haven’t read the manual yet, so I hope to get better with this device as I familiarize myself with the controls and settings.

Right away I found this gimbal to be vast improvement over straight handheld shooting, but having a poor understanding of how to get best results from the software and opting to not compensate for it in editing, this quick video is a bit rough around the edges.

I know there are a number of things I can improve upon to get clearer, sharper, and smoother imaging in my further tests with these devices.
