Now, the usefulness of this next one is going to depend on what you are actually planning on doing with your gimbal but a cold show mounting plate can be a great addition to your Smooth Q accessories. This will essentially allow you to mount additional accessories to the gimbal rig with ease by adding a mounting plate to the gimbal handle.

If you are planning to use your Smooth Q for vlogging or anything where you will be wanting the best possible audio quality, it makes it easy to add a decent external microphone to the gimbal. Another example where a mounting place could come in handy for the Smooth Q is if you know you are going to be recording in low light conditions. It allows you to quickly and easily mount a video light to the panel to improve the image quality you are able to capture when working in poor lighting.

Not only does it provide the gimbal with a stable base for the selfie-style example that we mentioned earlier in the article but you can close the tripod legs and they will act as an extension to the handle of the gimbal.
