How to mic your Zhiyun Smooth 4

In this video we are showing you how to mount a microphone onto your Zhiyun Smooth 4 as standard there isn't a cold shoe mount on the Smooth 4, we need to use a microphone clamp from DF Digitalfoto, which I like because it can keep the setup quite compact. However we also need to use a counterweight as we need to move the phone further out to have enough space for the mic jack, but that will imbalance the setup and need to use a counterweight so we can get the correct balance again.
