Zhiyun Crane 2 Handheld Gimbal

This is the brand new Zhiyun Crane 2 - Not the Version 2 (V2) of the original model

The Zhiyun Crane 2 three-axis camera stabilizer, while realizing film-grade performance breakthroughs in both motion sensitivity and precision control with newly optimized algorithm system and motor construction, has integrated a tactile and sturdy follow focus controller on its body previously unheard of in the industry. Featuring an OLED display design combined with quick control dial on its panel, you not only can see various stabilizer status at a glance but can also make various camera & gimbal settings in a twist of fingers.

Real Time Follow Focus
Integrated with an unprecedented follow focus wheel on the body, Crane 2 allows ±0.02° precision real time focus control through camera cable connection so that you can always keep your subject in focus while moving, setting free your camera for more dedicated tasks.

3.2kg Max. Payload
Empowered by the 6th Gen. Instune Algorithm System which realizes 50% increase in motor torque and 20% improvement in noise reduction, the Crane 2 sets up a new benchmark for the industry supporting a max. payload of 3.2kg, mountable by all models of DSLR and mirrorless camera on the market.

Instant Precise Attitude Compensation
Integrated with the pioneering 32-bit x 3 high-speed MCU parallel control technology which realizes 100% improvement in response speed, CRANE 2 gets high above the industry standard with its cutting-edge attitude compensation system and unparalleled anti-shaking stabilizing performance.

Intuitive OLED Display
The intuitive interface design help you easily identify the connection status, battery level, control mode and multiple camera params, giving you full control over every detail.

18 Hour Runtime for Longtime Task
Three high energy efficiency 18650 rechargeable batteries give the Crane 2 maximum runtime of 18 hours with 6000mAh capacity. Meanwhile, the Crane 2 allows convenient real-time charging to the camera even when your camera is without batteries.

Innovative Quick Control Dial Design
The quick control dial on the control panel is like an integrated extension of your camera. You can either press or rotate the dial to make various camera parameter settings such as TV, AV, ISO and EV, giving you seamless camera control independently from any software applications.

Complete Kits with Elaborate Details
Crane 2 comes standard with a comprehensive accessories kit, including camera control cables to connect with various brand cameras, an Aluminum alloy tripod, an EVA carrying bag, as well as a MANFROTTO standard quick release plate that allows quick camera installation to the stabilizer or tripod within seconds, ideal for videographers stepping up their game.

Does it and does it well
This is a great piece of kit. Works like a dream and when hooked up to a Canon DSLR produced results that amaze others in the industry. Not the easiest set up but once you get the hang of it set up can be repeated in a few minutes. Bargain.

The Perfect Gimbal
Very very happy with this Zhiyun Gimbal and the service I’ve gotten from GripUp, they really know their stuff. Quite used to having to swap between a shoulder rig and a steady cam, but given the weight limit on this, I’ve been able to get the best of both words. I’ll mount this onto a tripod but when I want to roam, just unclip it from the quick release and voila. Off I go. I’ve used the original V2 model but it just couldn’t handle my camera, swapping it out for the 2, its gotten the build just right, not too light where it’d feel cheap, but heavy and robust enough to use comfortably with my kit, not sure if me being 6’4 accounts for the ease ha. Calibrating is easy enough once you know how and having the screen makes it so much easier to understand what mode I’m in, really crucial for fast paced shoots. Haven’t used the follow focus feature yet, though I’m very glad to see something like this is included, it really does appear that Zhiyun have thought about everything that makes a Gimbal effective!
