Jim and Fred are presently conducting photo workshops at The Black Hills Photo Shootout in South Dakota, so no news this time!


Gimbals are one of the latest devices for filmmakers to capture smooth motion video - even with a smartphone!  The technology is the same as used on UAVs (otherwise known as drones) to keep the camera steady.  Zhiyun has been making gimbals for the past couple of years - even larger gimbals for mirrorless cameras and DSLRs.  The Smooth Q is their latest, and also the least expensive on the market, and works with sports cameras as well as smartphones.  In addtion, there is an app for the Smooth Q for both Android and Apple devices.

So just how well does the 3-axis Smooth Q work?  Well, check out the podcast and find out what Jim and Fred think.
