SMOOTH 5 Feature Highlights

Design – Upgraded motor performance and algorithm

  • The SMOOTH 5 has a smaller size than its predecessor but much stronger performance thanks to an upgraded motor performance and algorithm. The industry-standard 3-axis design allows movements in all angles to be amazingly smooth, even in extreme angles.

  • This makes it easy to shoot in all angles switching seamlessly from portrait to landscape mode, and it mounts easily on the phones favoured by mobile filmmakers like the iPhone 13 Pro MAX, Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, Huawei Mate X2, and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra thanks to its smart lock design.

Easy to use control panel – Point, click, and shoot

  • Users will feel at ease thanks to the all-in-one control panel that allows them to adjust many features with only one hand without the trouble of using an app. There’s also a multifunctional control wheel that gives users perfect control over zooming and focusing.

Some of the creative features included in the SMOOTH 5 are Magical Pano, allowing for a magnificent view in your smartphone with 180° panorama, Timelapse, where you can watch the time go by at a quicker pace to experience scenes that are used to take a longer time., and Live Stream Master, which allows for face tracking for the perfect live stream experience.
