So it helps the motor from working too hard now to turn on the gimbal, just press on the power button and when you first turn on the gimbal, its going to be in the vertical uh stage to uh record uh in landscape mode. Just click on the trigger button three times all right guys lets check out the six different mode on this uh smooth q3 and the first mode is the pan, follow just click once and see the led light on the pen follow indicator it comes on and what The hand follow does is everything else lock, except when you pan the cam will follow like that. But then everything else is locked in one place and then the lock, when you click on the lock mode. What it does is everything else. All the axle is locked in one place. It doesnt matter how you move, the gimbal is going to lock in one place now, for the follow mode is the f. What it does is, you could pan follow and then a tube follow, but then the the roll axle will be locked in place when you pan it follow. When you tilt now the pov, it stands for point of view mode click on it make sure the lights indicate. Uh indicate light lights on on the pan of view, and what that does? Is you get the tip? Follow a pen follow and roll follow like that, and you tilt follow with the roll follow and then you pan and then theres another mode after you when you get after the point of view, follow you click once on the mode button, and then you could do The vortex by using your joystick here and it does the vortex – i think it only does 180 degree and then to activate the gold mode.
You click on the trigger button and then just hold it and then wherever you go, it just follows fast. There you go thats the sixth mode, on the smooth q3, when in the pen follow mode, you can actually like turn the gimbal and fall like low recording for the ground, and if, if the gimbal is in the way you can see, the phone will flip. The other way, so the gimbal is not in the way of the camera, to fully use all the features and function of the gimbal. You want to go into the apple store or the google play store to download the zy app. When you open the app thats, you know you go, you can go in settings. Im. Gon na show you a couple settings for the gimbal, which is very useful uh. When you go right here after you download app open it up to go, you go into gimbals, and then you can actually change the speed of the joystick to fast, medium or slow and the zoom. How fast you want to zoom in and out when record at night. One of the features i like about the smooth q3 is the built in light.
