Overview

The best of the best in mirrorless camera gimbals.

The Zhiyun-Tech Crane V2 with 3-axis functionality is compatible with most mirrorless cameras and some DSLRs (lens dependent), including the popular Sony A7SII and Panasonic GH5. It stabilizes and can rotate on any of the 3 axis a full 360 degrees. And with its 4 operational modes (locked, pan-follow, pan/tilt follow, and inverted) the V2 can accommodate virtually any shooting scenario and any angle, making it ideal for shooting silky smooth footage for a variety of uses, including real-estate videos, wedding videos, travel films, and more. Made from solid aluminum, the Zhiyun Crane V2 looks, feels and performs like premium technology.

Key Features:

  • Payload capacity up to 1800g
  • Bluetooth module
  • Compatible with all mirrorless cameras and some DSLRs
  • 60 second balance adjustment
  • 12 hour extensive battery runtime
  • Unlimited 360° rotation on 3-Axis

Note: An upgrade from the original Crane, the V2 model offers a heavier payload, features a quick release mechanism, 1 set of 26500 batteries and updated controls on the handle

Additional Features:

  • SIMPLE TO SET UP BALANCE AND CONTROL

    The Crane is simple to set up, balance and control and can work easily in a handheld upright, under slung or microphone operational style. The Crane is simple to set up, balance and control and can work easily in a handheld upright, under slung or microphone operational style.
  • THREE DIFFERENT MODES PROVIDE ALL THE CONTROL YOU NEED

    The Crane’s simple thumb controller works in three modes: “Normal Follow” in which the gimbal maintains horizon but the camera pans to follow action as the operator turns as well as providing power tilt via the thumb control; “Full Control” mode in which the built in thumb controller can operate both powered pan and tilt control; and “Dutch Tilt” which allows you to offset the roll “horizon” axis.
  • REMOTE CONTROL

    The Zhiyun-Tech Crane's pan and tilt can also be remotely controlled with either the optional palm-size Bluetooth connection remote control (sold separately) or with a free downloadable mobile APPZhiyun Assistant, that allows you to control, calibrate and adjust the gimbals attributes remotely. It also enables fine tune adjustments such as speed, smoothing and direction of the axis motor control.
  • SMOOTH INSTANT ATTITUDE COMPENSATION

    The Zhiyun Crane is the industry’s first to achieve three 32-bit MCUs (microcontrollers), providing synchronous processing speed up to 4000Hz on its independent built-in IMU processor, allowing you to create the most impressive shots with its incomparable motion sensitivity and precision control. Again, an example of Zhiyun-Tech’s leading-edge technology.
  • GREATER EFFICIENCY & LOWER CONSUMPTION

    Empowered by an Instune algorithm combined with high-torque motor technology, the Zhiyun-Tech Crane can compensate for intense motions or even sudden twists. Its extraordinary steadiness eliminates subtle shakes even when zooming and achieves this in complete silence. In addition, 2 Li-ion batteries provide up to 10-12 hours of operating time.
  • SINGLE OR DUAL HANDLE OPERATION

    An optional dual-hand handle provides better body balance and can reduce the load of operating with a single arm as well as provide mounting points for other camera accessories such as external recorders or monitors. A must have for single operator style shooters covering  all day events or weddings.
  • UNIQUE DOVETAIL SLOT DESIGN

    The Crane introduces a universal sliding camera base plate, enabling easy accurate and faster adjustment of balance, helping you to get shooting faster!
  • GIMBAL AND CAMERA CAN WORK AS ONE

    To make life easier for photographers and filmmakers, the Zhiyun-Tech Crane is the first of its kind to support real time control of both Sony and Panasonic cameras, allowing the stabilizer and camera to work as one. With the addition of optional control cables you will be able to hook the camera up so you can remote trigger the camera and even control lens zoom with selected power zoom lenses.
  • 3-AXIS 360° UNLIMITED ROTATION

    With advanced slip rings, the 3-axis Crane can rotate 360 degrees accommodating all shooting requirements, i.e. upright shooting, low angle and over-head video capture with or without boom pole.
  • FLEXIBLE MOUNTING

    The Crane’s handle has a threaded hole 3/8”-16 with a supplied reducer to the standard ¼”-20, allowing it to be easily used with boom poles or attached to lighting stands or tripods

Supported cameras:

  • Sony
  • Panasonic
  • Some DSLRs
  • Compatible with cameras weights between 350g and 1800g.

* Optional Dual Handle for Crane Gimbal also available.
