"The Zhiyun raises your production to a level above the ordinary"

Here at GripUp, we love the Zhiyun-Tech Crane and it has quickly become one of our best-selling gimbals. With a maximum payload of 1800g, it is perfect for cameras like the Sony A7s and Panasonic GH5. Due to its slightly longer handle our customers have found the Zhiyun easy to hold and even easier to use. With a 6-hour battery life that has the potential to extend to 12, this gimbal can last you all shoot. The Zhiyun raises your production to a level above the ordinary.

The Zhiyun Crane is a 3-axis SINGLE handheld gimbal designed for mirrorless cameras, you are enjoying the most cost-effective solution than other similar stabilizers. It is the first camera stabilizer that can control the cameras currently on the market. The three strong brushless motors have an encoder each. Whatever you shoot, the Crane will always help you get incredibly smooth, professional video footage. It is lightweight, small and easy to use.

Stronger Performance, Supports a Canon 5D
The Crane weighs only 950g, while it can support up to 1800g. It’s perfect for almost all mirrorless cameras, such as the Sony A7SII, Sony A7S, Sony A6300 and Panasonic GH4, even Canon 5D with 16-35mm lens is workable.

6 months in and still a beauty!
I have been using this while travelling, day in day out, and the Zhiyun-tech crane still gives 110%. Super easy to balance, is robust and the battery life is amazing. My favorite gimbal yet!
