Zhiyun Crane v2 - 3-Axis Gimbal for Mirrorless/DSLR Cameras
The best of the best in mirrorless camera gimbals.

Made from solid aluminum, the Zhiyun Crane V2 looks, feels and performs like premium technology.

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.
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.
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
