Well, zinn has provided this product to test and review to have a first look, so let’s take a look as you’re looking at the unboxing of this product. What is the difference between q2 and q3? Well, the design is completely different. The measurements are a bit different, but not too much you can see them being displayed on the screen. What’S included. First of all, i’m loving the carrying back inside is stabilizer tripod, usb c charging, cable and quick start guide. Wrist strap vip card. It is quite impressive. Packaging when it comes to weight q2 is 440 grams. Q3 is much lighter. It is 340 grams, however, it can handle more payload. The maximum payload is 280 grams. Q2 has 260 grams. This gimbal has 1 300 milliamp hour. Battery charging time is 3 hours and, if properly balanced, you can get up to 15 hours of runtime q2 has a battery which can be changed. Not this one q3 has a built in battery. This gimbal can be used in operating 10 purchase, ranging from 10 to plus 45 degrees celsius great, so this can be used in canadian winter. This gimbal is foldable and each motor has a lock, so you need to unlock it first before you start using it. This part is very similar to their stabilized selfie. Stick jn, smooth xs, except this one has a lock and that’s a very good thing. So you loosen it extend until you hear click and tighten everything else is just the same like on the other gimbals.
The way you stabilize your smartphone is making sure it is leveled in landscape mode and portrait mode. As you probably noticed, this part is new it’s a fill light and you can turn it 180 degrees. It is 4 300 kelvin light and there are three levels of lighting we will get to that later on and test it. How is the clamp i’ve got movement case on both phones? It is holding very well. Let me show you in detail, so you could see how much room there is for those who have larger phone cases. Maximum range of the clamp is 90 millimeters, let’s turn it on and check it out. The power button has been moved to the back that’s different that’s new. If you single press the power button, you will check the battery level. Long press will turn on and off and if you press 8 times you will reset the bluetooth. I like the design. It feels very comfortable in my hand. I also like the tripod with the long legs there’s a less chance that you will accidentally tip it over the front interface is quite standard, it’s, very simple: we are not getting a focus wheel with this. One you’ve got a joystick here mode button where you can change the modes directly on the gimbal. You can clearly see what the mode you are in. The light will be on when you single press, you will switch between modes. When you double press, it will go into previous mode and if you press and hold it will enter or exit standby mode being able to switch between the modes directly on a gimbal is huge, because that means that you can film pretty much in any app.
So what modes do we have pan follow mode where you can go only left and right, log mode where all motors are locked, Music follow mode where up down right and left movements are unlocked, pov, which is like an airplane mode, and when you press one more Time the pov starts flashing. That means that when you press joystick up or down it will spin the vortex mode before we continue. Let’S look at the motor range of motion tilt mechanical range is minus 260 degrees to plus 80.. Pan mechanical range is minus 150 degrees to plus 150 degrees, and a roll mechanical range is 170 to plus 170 degrees. If you go all the way there. Actually, the gimbal is blocking the camera Music, so you would start here and you would have to crop it right about there. How is the movement of the motors? Is there any vibration? Is there a sound? I know that when i’m moving the motors, there is absolutely no vibration. There is no sound it’s very silent. It is well built the only cracking here and there i actually hear of in the body when i’m moving it too fast, but if you’re gon na be moving, it obviously slow, you’re gon na be filming. You’Re, not gon na hear that i didn’t see any problems. Filming in low angles, no issues there. Let me change to the android phone, though, because it’s way, bigger phone and let’s see how the movements are there.
So right now i have samsung galaxy s10, plus a little bit bigger phone in the gimbal, and i already played with the movements. I don’t see any issues with it. It’S very good it’s holding very well. It doesn’t get stuck. Let me put on following mode: it works. Just fine below the mood button is the record button. If you single press, you can take photos and film videos, double press to switch between photo and video mode, triple press switch front and rear cameras, press and hold to take multiple photos. Zoom button is on the side and the last trigger button on the back. Has a few more features, single press to enable smart following double press to recenter, triple press to switch between landscape and portrait mode, and if you press and hold you will get into phone go mode which is pretty much sports mode. The gimbal will follow moments. Just it will react way faster, one more button we didn’t check out yet, and that will be the fill light button. If you press and hold it will turn on the light. This is also the way you turn it off and if you single press, you will switch between three levels of brightness let’s see. So it is evening right now, i’m, just recording myself with a smartphone and let’s test. The light i’m gon na turn that on so this is what you would get if you would be using the light and i’m gon na go with.
Oh, i think this is the lowest strength. So this is how it’s gon na look like with the light and i’m gon na put it stronger, that’s step two and i’m gon na put the strongest, and this will be the strongest one. Let me turn it around and see what you can see and, as you can see i’m clearly in the woods. This is how it would look like if he would be actually recording, with a light sort of like a like a flashlight let’s check out how stable this gimbal really is. It’S time to do some running here’s, a regular walk, Music here’s, a ninja soft walk, Music and here is full speed run. I did this test in zykami app, which is the app you will be using with this gimbal. So what do we have here? Iphone goes. First, at the top left corner, we have home button let’s check back later. Now you can film in automatic or manual mode let’s. Look at the video settings, 4k, 1080p and 720p offers 24, 25, 30 and 60 frames per second filming nice below we have glamour effect or beauty mode which doesn’t work in 4k. It works in 1080p or 720p. It doesn’t work in 60 frames per. Second, you can only use 24 25 or 30 frames per second. So let me turn that on here we go and i’ll just put it to auto. Oh my! So this is how the app thinks we should really look like, but obviously you can change it to slim, smooth, enlarge your eyes, i believe lighten and rosy cheeks and all that.
So this is before just no filter and this is fully automatic glamour effect below. We have settings under shoot, you can turn on flashlight on your phone and degrade. You can also change your white balance here under gimbal settings is where you select scene mode. If you are walking, you select walk. If you are going to be running, you select run. You can change gimbal modes below change. How fast you want the joystick to move. You can adjust zoom, speed, invert, pan and tilt control. You can customize m button and perform gimbal auto calibration. That is something you want to do before, filming to make sure the horizon level is where it’s supposed to be under general. You can customize theme settings as opposed. This feature is coming up because right now, it’s grayed out and then further below is your device information. What do we have on the right side of the app you can film hyperlapse in 1080p or 720p? You can choose from the following speeds: 5 times 10 times 15 times and 30 times. Next, we have time lapse where all the settings are at the top. You can create motion timelapse here as well. You can select up to five points, dually zoom feature is next. Then we have a slow motion. I can see that it is 120 frames per second slow motion. Panorama is next here you can create magic. Clone panel 3×3 panorama, 180 degrees panorama and 240 degrees, Music Applause, Music, video mode follows photo mode, a live mode where you can do live streaming and smart, which has pre designed templates.
Something like stories just follow the moments, and i will tell you what to do. Let’S try one you can also create here. Your custom template many choices of movement here, that’s, very cool, and if you are prime member, you can download even more templates here. I want to mention that in the package you will find this little card, which will give you six months of free trial for the prime membership area. You can also go to smart feature here by clicking on this button below you can switch rear and front camera. Next, we have a record button gesture control, and here you can access gallery of what you took. I want to see how the zoom is gon na be well. I see four dots there. Three of them will be switching between your lenses and the fourth one will be strictly digital zoom, so let’s test how smooth it is Music. I can see that there is a significant jump between ultra wide angle, lens and standard and let’s test. The tracking feature it’s get smart, follow 3.0, so uh let’s see how good it is, what it tracks – Music, let’s press, the home button. Now here you can access a video editing app. You can either edit on your own or you can select templates and if you are prime member, you can select online editing with more templates. If you go to your account here, you can access prime membership area, where you have video materials online, editing, upload privileges, live stream, master, smart template, restream, a few more things i want to check out before i move on to the android version of the app one Of them is, can we attach variable nd filter if you’re going to be filming in manual mode? As you know, there are no holes on the other side, so you cannot really attach counterweights so right now i have the nd filter on.
Obviously it is not balanced. Well, because the more more weight is on the other side, so ideal would be to attach something to the other side of your phone i’m working on this video for a few days. Just because it’s a brand new product, which means that things are getting updated and added on a daily basis, they’re just catching on, and the latest updates i have actually that they are currently jun – is currently working with another company to create clip on counterweight. So if that is gon na work, we will have a very sweet package when we will be able to use variable nd filter with counterweights. I also ask them a question if it’s gon na damage the motors, if you’re gon na, have it in a wrong balance, if you’re gon na be using viable, nd filter without counterweights, and i was told that the motors might get a little bit warm, they might Get a little bit hot, but no, it should not damage the motors. Can we use externalize microphone well, let’s, go ahead and check that out and i’m back i’m filming in the zykami app. Hopefully, the audio is getting picked up so i’m going to walk away turn around. If it does, then you know that this app is actually also working with the external microphone. Does it work with other apps? I checked native camera app filmic pro protake and moment with all of these apps. You can use the record button to stop start and stop recording or take photos.
I also checked the zoom buttons is not working in any of these. At this moment, android users. What are you going to get in the zoi kemi app or what you are not going to get there? When you open the app on android phone, you will be able to film in 24 and 30 frames per second in 720p, 1080p and 4k. You are not going to get a slow motion. Everything else is going to work.
