Here is the link to the gimbal we have. https://www.zhiyun-tech.com/WEEBILLLAB/en The base of the unit has two USB micro ports. I have tested both and they both are capable of charging at 5VDC. They have their own app which allows operation and time-lapse functionality. This is the link to their app. https://www.zhiyun-tech.com/ZYPlay/en The gimbal requests both wifi and Bluetooth connection. I have verified the app allows me to operate the gimbal axis. There is no image coming into the ZYPlay app from my camera. I believe this is due to the lack of USB connection and camera control. My hope is that the currently-available streaming of video used the Panasonic Image App, along with the ability to set-up camera parameters and start/stop could be mapped to the hardware controls of the Weebill gimbal.
Sure thing. Zhiyun makes some great cranes and gimbals but the controls are only available via USB micro to the base. After that, you can record, change camera settings and control focus on the handle. They do not seem interested in expanding their mobile app to control these parameters via Wifi or Bluetooth. It would be great to have a small interface that maps the Panasonic app controls via Wi-Fi and allow input/output through USB-C or USB Micro. No need for any button mapping or knobs, just an interface.
BTM_Pix, Great work on all your projects. Would it be possible to have a simplified version of this remote as an interface for LANC control via 1/8" or Micro USB? I would love to use my GX85 on a gimbal but would need a way to convert the wifi control to direct cable. The Zhiyun XY Play app has less chance of getting updated than your progress, I think.
