  1. Dear gentlemen, I am a subscriber of CâmaraFi Live
    and recently bought a Smooth 4 from zhiyun that
    Use the Zy play app as a stabilizer control. I have a Samsung A30 (SM-A305GT)
    With Android 9, I wonder if there is any way to do
    Smooth 4 controls work on the CameraFi Live.

    1. Stabilizer (gimbal) is not currently supported. However, we will review it so that you can apply.
