Competition Closed Now Closed
Apologies for the delay in announcing the winner, I got stuck in Glasgow due to the weather.
The winner is T Culshaw from the comments below. They have been contacted and the gimbal will be posted this week.
Zhiyun specialises in camera gimbals and stabilisers for videos with products covering both consumers and professionals.
Their product range undercuts big name brands just as DJI while offering the same quality of features.
Their most recent launch is the Smooth 5 and the Smooth X2. Today, they have just announced their Black Friday deals. Zhiyun have also kindly provided me with a Zhiyun Q3 to give away, which will make an ideal Christmas gift for any aspiring videographer, or influencer.
Competition details at the end of this post.
Zhiyun Smooth 5
The Smooth 5 is the new top of the range consumer gimbal with 3-axis design that allows movements in all angles to be amazingly smooth, even in extreme angles. It then has magnetic contact points on both sides and can be attached with a maximum of two 300-lumen fill lights for 360° all-around lighting.
The Zhiyun Smooth 5 has launched for £159

Win a Zhiyun Q3 Gimbal
The Zhiyun Smooth Q3 was launched earlier this year and while it is included in the Black Friday sale, with the standard gimbal at £69.99 from £89 and the combo down to £88.99 from £109, that deal is only on til the end of the month, so it is a good opportunity to try and get a piece of new tech for free!
This lightweight and highly portable gimbal can take a maximum payload of 280g, which covers some of the heavier smartphones on the market, including the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The SMOOTH-Q3 features a built-in LED light, 17 creative shooting modes
It currently sells for £89 on the Zhiyun website.
Winner will be announced at some point on Sunday 28th of November
