The best of the best in mirrorless camera gimbals.

Customized for mirrorless cameras, the professional ZhiYun Crane features a 3-axis non-stopper design, is dual-battery compatible, and offers advanced camera controlling and manual adjustment.

Key Features:

  • Supports 18650 / 26650 batteries
  • Built-in wireless
  • Bluetooth module
  • Compatible with most mirrorless cameras

Stronger Performance

The Crane weights only 950g, with payload weight of 1200g. Feel free to draw inspiration from multiple lenses and mirrorless cameras!

  • 1/4 inch screw thread

    Follow your style with the 1/4 screw thread at the bottom. The Crane can be matched with multiple filming accessories, i.e. tripod, extension rod, cupula, or handheld/worn to make delay shooting and create rocker arm effects.
  • Wireless control

    With the built-in wireless control module, you can control the Crane remotely or upgrade firmware by connecting the remote controller or using the APP. This is so convenient that the Rider M is always in fashion.
  • ZhiYun honeycomb technique

    The gimbal attitude control, combined with efficient motor control technology, makes it possible for fast and accurate compensation of sudden disturbances, reaching the industry's highest standard of noise reduction. Even when the frame is enlarged by 5 times, you will never notice shaking.
  • Tool-less, quick balance adjustment

    Thumbscrew design offers quick dismount of the camera, so you can complete all adjustments within a minute.
    Note: if you need to use a long lens, please mount the lens support.
  • Flexible use offers more inspiration

    Using the classic stepless rotational joystick, switching between pan following mode, locking mode, pan and tilt following mode, you can handle everything within fingertips. Easy work, easy fun.
  • 3-axis 360° unlimited rotation

    With advanced slip rings, the 3-axis Crane can rotate 360 degrees. Any shooting requirements will be perfectly satisfied, i.e. positive grip, upright shooting, low angle, high flight photography.
  • MCU parallel control

    The ZhiYun Crane is the industry’s first to achieve three 32-bit MCUs, running in parallel at an incredible 4k hertz. This number is far beyond the reach of any other gimbals.

Supported mirrorless cameras:

  • Sony α 7 Series
  • Panasonic LUMIX Series
  • Nikon J Series
  • Canon M Series
  • Compatible with cameras weights between 350g and 1200g.

* Optional Dual Handle for Crane Gimbal available here.
