Speaking of which S, saw a Smooth 4 going second hand on fleabay, sometimes fleabayers can be stupid as it went for £79 plus postage.

 

Can get them new for that.

Re: Cinema pro and gimbals.

In regards of using the cinema pro more, I've found that the shutter speed in daylight is higher than the 180 rule of 2x frame rate, this is obviously fixed with ND filters on usual cameras and video recorders but with the phones, we have to increase shutter speed to counter blown highlights.

Myself (and I wouldn't recommend doing so) I've trimmed a 52mm screw thread to 2mm wide and bonded it to the back of my case. Now I can add 52mm filters whilst using my gimbal.DSC_0216.JPG

Nice work!  That's given me an idea. I have a friend who can do 3d printing. A case with a 52mm hole would be a nice accessory.

On eBay there was someone selling customer returns, and I picked mine up for £50, which was a right bargain.

Re: Cinema pro and gimbals.

Great minds think alike! I've done something very similar. I purchased from Amazon a cheap phone case and a 55mm-52mm step down ring. I then CNC cut a plastic ring which I stuck to the case with VHB tape. The hole in the plastic ring was cut so that the 55mm thread fit tighltly and would not come loose. I can now easily attach and remove my 52mm variable ND filter.

Not gonna lie, that's where I got mine from, and probably the same seller.

From what I can see, mines a factory refurbished one, and yeah, nothing wrong with it at all.
