In short

YONGNUO YN360G is a smart stand that can automatically track a person's movement. The top of the rack is free to rotate 360 ​​degrees for tracking. The YN360G is very easy to set up. Based on visual analysis of the scene using a built-in video camera. It works very quietly. Has a built-in 4000 mAh battery, rechargeable via USB TYPE-C. Worth very cheap.

    Is Arkady married? Did not know.

    • Ivan

      Moreover, an attentive reader will notice her in examples of photographs, reviews of photographic equipment, as well as her son Arkady and his two cats.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        someone is following me :)

  • Ivan Shikhalev

    How smoothly does it move when tracking?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      moves smoothly, without jerking, there is a small range of swing speeds (from slow to fast). Tracking works very well when there is only 1 person in front of the counter, but when 2 or 3 of the rack starts to "get lost".

  • Dim

    If she could follow someone in particular it would be very convenient: her on the stand with a flash and here's your attentive assistant.
