Zhiyun Upgraded Z1 Evolution Handheld Gopro Gimbal

If you're not familiar with the Zhiyun Z1 GoPro Gimbals, you can take a look at some previous articles here and here. The New Z1 Evolution GoPro Gimbal is pretty much the same gimbal with the same performance, but they've added a few changes to improve over previous models.

One upgrade is the new bracket design that requires only one set of screws regardless if you have the Gopro Bac-Pac or extra battery mounted or not. The second addition is a 1/4" threaded mount under the handle. This makes it easier to mount to a variety of extension poles, monopods, suction cup car mounts, etc. They've also added an AV output for Xiaomi yi action cameras so you can use an external monitor.

    Hey Emm got this unit the other day and tried to put some 18650 batteries i had that came with a flashlight, thrunite brand, and they did not fit. The thrunite are a bit longer and any other one i looked into buying are the same size. Do you know or can recommend any batteries that will work for this unit i can buy via Amazon?

    Thanks in advance.

    @patrick - If you like mounting your gopro to places, the Rider is more versatile for that. If you like just walking with your GoPro on a stick, the Evolution may be better for that.
