The Holiday Season is upon us; which means it's time to start thinking about (and buying) some gifts for the people in your life. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, family members, or yourself, we have some great ideas for you here at VJ. One such gift is the Zhiyun Smooth III Smartphone Stabilizer.

The Zhiyun Smooth III is a stabilizing gimbal for your smartphone that will give you perfectly smooth video, every time you use it.

Shooting video with smartphones is amazing. It's easy, unassuming, shoots great quality video (4K even now) and you can edit and share it right from your device. One of the drawbacks of using smartphones is shaky footage. As smartphones are lightweight, when you shoot with them you are prone to get some small shakes throughout your video which can make it look less professional and distract the viewer. A gimbal, like the Zhiyun, keeps your phone steady no matter what movement may make you and your hands shake.

The Zhiyun is designed for smartphones, so all you have to do is clip your phone in and you're ready to use it. It is a 3-axis gimbal so no matter which way you move, your video will remains smooth. The gimbal comes with a companion app so you can monitor, control, and review your footage.

The Zhiyun Smooth III has a high price tag at $299, but if you or someone you know shoots a lot of video professionally with a smartphone, this is a great gift for them. Buy it now from Amazon.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for more holiday gift ideas for the video fan in your life!

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
