The First Handheld Gimbal with CCI (Camera Control Interface), thus the camera's shutter and focus can be controlled by the buttons on gimbal's handle. 3 operation modes. Quick, simple and tool-less camera mounting system saves time and effort.
3 Axis 360 Degree Unlimited Rotation. With the automotive grade magnetic encoders attached to each motor, the gimbal can sense every 0.02-degree change intervals. Any shooting requirements will be perfectly satisfied, i.e. positive grip, upright shooting, low angle, high flight photography.
The industry's first to achieve three 32-bit MCUs running in parallel at incredible 4k hertz. Powerful MCUs (Microcontroller Unit) combined with Zhiyun's efficient attitude control algorithm and advanced servo control algorithm, the gimbal is able to sense, compute then control the camera to a 0.01-degree accuracy, within 0.25 millisecond.
Built-in wireless control module can be connected with Zhiyun's gimbal remote controller or smartphone APP which can also be used for wireless control and firmware upgrade. Innovative battery tray design supports both 18650 or 26650 batteries(Not Included), provides 6 hours and 12 hours operating time respectively.
Weights only 2Lb/950g, compatible with Mirrorless Cameras weights between 0.77Lb/350g and 3.96Lb/1800g. 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 hand held/worn to make delay shooting and create the effect of rocker arm.

Fantastic gimbal. Smooth, silent, rock steady. Bought this for use with a lighter lx100, and can zoom in/out and/or add an ND filter without re-adjusting balance. I built a handheld gimbal a few years ago using the SimpleBGC controller and a drone gimbal, and always disliked the way it would freak out if it lost steps, and it had significant trouble with being slightly off balance due to zoom or filters. With the Zhiyun, you can push it to make it loose steps, and it will recover immediately, without any jerking or wobbling, it just smoothly glides back to center. Fantastic. Handles zoom and filters on my little lx100 very well.
I shoot Facebook add videos for a large construction company, which required carrying my gear all over a job site, up and down ladders, and generally in rough conditions, this gimbal has been reliable and up to the task every time.
I agree with another reviewer it would be nice to have an LED letting you know what mode your in. You have...
I've been using this for about 2 months now and love this thing. I never travel without it. For the price, you get an incredibly well-built and well-designed product. Every single time I use it I give silent thanks to the designers and engineers. Nothing feels flimsy or out of place on this gimbal. It operates 100% silently, smoothly, and reliably.
As much as I love it, I do have a couple of minor complaints. 1. There should be some type of LED indicator light to let you know what mode you're in. Right now I just randomly click the control button until it doesn't what I want. 2. It would be nice if there were some way to mount this thing on your hip to keep it out of the way when you're not shooting with it. I have my Black Rapid Strap and I attach it to when I need to use both hands but it's a really clunky and dangerous solution.
If they fixed those two things, this bad boy would be perfect.
Works amazing! I'm currently using a Sony a6300 with an adapter and Tokina 11-16 lens and I am very joyful that the Crane can actually hold this front heavy set up quite nicely with no struggle. Used the Zhiyun Crane so far on 1 of my projects and very excited for more projects in the future!
