Testing the RX0 on the Zhiyun Smooth Q Gimbal

The RX0 has no stabilization. To shoot video you need something to stabilize. There is an adaptor that allows one to use the RX0 on the Zhiyun Smooth Q gimbal. The gimbal is cheap - $99 ($89 if you get it in gold!). But it has strong, silent motors and a 12-hour battery life.

I like to shoot 4K video, taking advantage of the fact that the RX0 outputs high-quality 4K 10-bit 422 video from its HDMI port. So I use the Shogun Inferno (eventually the 5" compact Ninja V).

So, I tested out the combo, shooting this 4K video in Marsh Gardens, New Haven, CT:

What does the handheld rig look like?

Note: the gimbal in this photo is not turned on - the camera is well-balanced on the gimbal. The camera has a PL filter.
