My Thoughts: Worth to Buy?
Overall, both new gimbals seem amazing and loaded with great features that many competitors don’t have. I personally liked Zhiyun Smooth Q3 more as I am more into smartphone videography rather than DSLR videography. But if you shoot videos from DSLR then Zhiyun Weebill 2 is for you.
