Ultimate Small, Ultra Strong

Unlike any other gimbal in the market, you don’t need to fold up SMOOTH-Q2 to make it small. Measuring only 204mm long, SMOOTH-Q2 is almost equivalent to a sunglass case that you can throw into your handbag. The aluminum-built miniaturized body is crafted for maximum solidity. Coated with soft silicone, the handle is comfortable in your hand.

Simplicity Meets Functionality

Switch among 6 modes with one button. Besides Pan Following Mode, Following Mode and Lock Mode, SMOOTH-Q2 integrates Vortex Mode which gives videomakers the freedom to create 360-degree barrel shots in all dimension. Newly added Full-Range POV Mode allows 360-degree synchronous movement on three axes, providing an immersive effect to the video.
