Zhiyun Smooth Q2 function button and indicator instruction

BySigismondo Eisenhower 2019-10-21 2902

Different from the Zhiyun Smooth 4 for film shooting - with a variety of control buttons, the jog wheel and the arranging dial, it gives the mobile phone a wider and more professional experience. Zhiyun Smooth Q2 is a minimalist structure. In the design, many common operation controls are simplified to the three buttons of the body, which reduces the learning cost and provides a simple and easy to use experience for the stabilizer green hands.
