The Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 is a 3-axis handheld gimbal stabilizer offering 360° rotation along all three axes. It offers button-powered continuous rotation along the pan axis, and manual non-stop circular rotation along the tilt and roll axes.

The Crane is designed for DSLR and mirrorless cameras weighing up to 3.9 lb, such as the Sony a7S and Panasonic GH4, and includes an attachable lens support for long lenses. The Crane features three 32-bit MCUs (motor control units) running in parallel at 4000 Hz, and has a stepless joystick at your fingertips that allows switching between different modes. Cameras attach by securing a simple thumbscrew without any tools, and full setup can be achieved within a minute.

A 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole on the bottom also allows use with monopods and various other support equipment. The Crane can also be controlled wirelessly from an iOS/Android app (available from Zhiyun-Tech) via a built-in Bluetooth connection to your phone. The Crane runs on and comes with two 26500 batteries which feature a 12- to 18-hour runtime.

"it's ok...love it...good things: Really is a solid construction Very easy to handle Perfectly fulfills its function One of the best on the market good price Cons: It's a bit heavy to carry in a hand Recommended shoe or it will be very difficult to calibrate each mount Support a lot like a light stand or tripod...I am using a camera on the heavier end of the weight allowance and it is handling it pretty well... The reason I give it 4 stars is because it CAN make some sudden adjustments when filming, but these ticks are not frequent."

B&H # DJRONINM MFR # CP.ZM.000144.03

The Ronin-M 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer from DJI is a camera stabilization system designed to give the operator close to the freedom of unencumbered handheld shooting but without the hand-shake. Suitable for most camera types and configurations up to 8 pounds, the Ronin-M uses brushless motors that work on three axes: one for side-to-side "roll" (keeping the horizon level), one for tilt, and one for pan. The system is computer-controlled and features a tilt range of 105° up / 165° down plus a roll range of ±110°. Furthermore, the system boasts a precision of control of ±0.02°, enabling precise camera moves and stability correction against even very fine movements. In addition to handheld shooting, the gimbal can be used in vehicle mounting scenarios and other contexts where vibrations or other abrupt movements would make tripods and rigid camera support systems unsuitable.

The Ronin-M supports dual-operator shooting, much like working with a jib that has a motorized pan/tilt head. In this mode, a second operator would use the included transmitter (radio controller) to manually control camera pan and tilt independently of which way the Ronin-M itself moves. The included transmitter/receiver system operates on 2.4 GHz and is proprietary. If you prefer to use a third-party transmitter there is a D-Bus port on the Ronin-M to install your own receiver. 

As with sled and vest style stabilizers, motorized gimbal systems require balancing before use. Once balanced, you can configure the Ronin-M for your particular camera arrangement using the Assistant Software for compatible iOS and Windows (Desktop) devices with Bluetooth. Because every camera and lens combination has a different mass and weight distribution, there is an ATS (Auto Tune Stability) procedure in which each axis will adjust individually, repeating the process until all three are aligned. A gimbal tuning stand is provided so you won't have to hand-hold the rig during this process.

The included 4S lithium-ion polymer battery powers the Ronin-M for up to six hours. It is a "smart" battery, meaning power regulation and protection circuitry is built-in and there is no separate balancing lead, unlike many lithium-polymer batteries. A charger is also included, and it is important to always use chargers designed for the Ronin-M battery because of the smart circuitry. Two 12V DC PowerTaps and one USB power port on the camera base allow you to power on-camera accessories directly from the Ronin-M battery to simplify your charging regimen and avoid unnecessary added weight.

"Love it...Love it!...And I found that the Ronin-M app worked on an iPhone while the Movi-5 required me to buy a separate tablet which could be bought for $125 but still, another $125 on top of the doubling of initial investment seems too much to pay if an alternate solution could be found....I use this primarily for music videos and live gigs and it's a great bit of kit - takes a bit of getting used to so give yourself a weekend to play before a shoot."

"Love it!...Very cool...I owned Moza Air for few weeks, it impressed me a lot, I like the wireless controller with so many functions, especially for the mimic motion control, after pairing the controller to the gimbal, pitch, roll and yaw movements can be controlled smoothly in every direction fast or slow by just simply move the controller, so I can control the gimbal even I am not holding it, it also can control the start/stop recording of my 70D camera....I had it for a couple weeks and find out this gadget is very friendly to the fresh user, lighter than the Ronin which I tried from a local shop."

Gain greater control over your gimbal shots with the Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2, a 3-axis handheld stabilizer with an integrated follow focus control for select Canon cameras. The Crane-2 supports DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and camcorders weighing up to a solid seven pounds. Connect your Canon DSLR or mirrorless camera (released after 2008, with an original autofocus lens) to the gimbal via cable, then adjust focus using the large thumbwheel on the handgrip. The Crane-2 offers three levels of focus control, enabling you to fine-tune your focusing based on the lens used, and the shot itself.

For quick, convenient adjusting of your camera's settings, the Crane-2 provides an interface comparable to those found on most cameras. Two large buttons, and two smaller ones, on the handgrip are pressed or rotated to scroll through and choose parameters. An LED screen above the controls enables you to quickly and easily monitor your settings. The Crane-2 offers improved motor torque, response speed, and image stabilization over earlier Zhiyun models, enabling smooth, reliable moves.

Shoot up to a whopping maximum of 18 hours—the Crane-2's three 18650-type batteries provide 6000mAh of capacity. Select Sony cameras may be charged through the gimbal, eliminating time otherwise spent swapping out camera batteries. Additional Crane-2 features include a Manfrotto-standard quick release plate for rapid camera mounting, and a "slow-fall" function that protects your camera from a sudden drop when the stabilizer is powered down.

"Not Bad...worth it...The only place you MAY be able to rest it's on the focus wheel...but moving that thing around you can tell a lot of wear may slowly loosen is up (it's held be a screw down the center....The thumb controller is also way more sensitive than I would like, and there doesn't appear to be a way to adjust this, so a smooth shift is EXTREMELY difficult to achieve and manual control in locked mode is basically out of the question."

"Very nice...Love it!!...If you have wind expect frustration.I am going to experiment by reducing the counter weight slightly and will probably grind down a couple of the supplied weights so I can extend the post a fraction.I am not shooting feature films however and it does the job, so I can't gripe too much and I would buy it again....If you will not be using the item often this may be acceptable but I would recommend something different if you will be using a stabilizer often."

The MōVI M5 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer from Freefly is designed for mid-sized DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and camcorders weighing up to 5 pounds, including the lens. For camera stabilization the M5 uses three motors and an IMU (inertial measurement unit) to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll. In particular, compensating for handshake or vehicle-induced vibration and reducing translation. There is a quick-release adapter available separately so that it can be mounted on cranes, jibs, vehicle mounts, and other camera support equipment. There is also an MR (multi-rotor) conversion kit, available separately, so that it can mounted on a UAV.

The system supports single- or dual-operator control. In single user (Majestic) mode the system's software intelligently differentiates unwanted shake or vibration from intentional movement, such as panning, while keeping the horizon level. Alternatively, you can have a dedicated operator with a remote control or RC transmitter who is in charge of camera pan, tilt--and if you want--roll. In this configuration the camera will always point where the operator of the remote tells it to, independent of how the rig operator moves.

As with sled-style stabilizers, the camera should be balanced on the MōVI to ensure best performance. Once balanced, the MōVI will need to be linked via Bluetooth to an Android mobile device or a computer or tablet running Windows to finalize the configuration process.

Two lithium-polymer (LiPo) batteries and a charger are included, as well as a top handle for low-angle shooting or transporting the assembled rig on set.

The Camera Motion Research Blackbird Camera Stabilizer Kit allows for easy leveling, balancing, and positioning of DSLRs and camcorders weighing up to 8 lb. The handheld system includes a camera stage/chassis with support arm, mounting plate, locating pin, gimbal and extender, T-bar assembly with two horizontal bars, counterweights, universal docking bracket with table clamp, tripod adapter, resting stand, and a custom case.

The camera is attached to the stage via a mounting plate that has a friction pad to securely mount the camera with or without use of the camera locating pin. The plate also provides additional front/back adjustments and has a safety pin to prevent the camera from sliding off the stage during adjustment.

The stage features a scale to reference the position of the plate so that rebalancing time is minimized when attaching the camera. Low backlash screw drives and internal dovetail guides ensure secure positioning of the camera when in use, and the built-in tilt and roll bubble levels make balancing easy in both axes.

The gimbal assembly with six precision ball bearings can take a minimum static load of 57 lb in any axis. The main operator control ring gives you roll, tilt, and pan control whereas the second ring below the gimbal controls only pan. The gimbal extension is used for cameras weighing less than about 2 lb.

The SmoothTouch technology provides you with controlled friction (adjustable for different camera weights) to reduce roll and tilt motion artifacts. It also reduces the initial stabilizer motions from acceleration to avoid the pendulum effect. During outdoor shots, constant and smooth gimbal friction reduces the effects of the wind and results in better shots, irrespective of the operator skill levels.

The stabilizer can be easily adjusted to achieve correct vertical balance for different cameras by using counterweights. The weights interlock mutually as well as with the crossbar to prevent shifting that can create noise during movements. Finer adjustments can be made by moving the T-bar up or down, with the locking lever providing fast and secure locking. The gimbal vertical position can also be adjusted by rotating the gimbal up or down.

The horizontal counterweight bar can be positioned side to side to allow holding of the stabilizer close to the body; it can also be positioned front to back during shots that require the stabilizer on either side of the body. The 11" horizontal bar gives adjustable angular position for better performance, whereas the 15" horizontal bar provides maximum pan axis moment of inertia and stability.

The Universal docking bracket can be used to balance the camera and Blackbird on a tripod, C-stand, or table edge. The table clamp has a maximum open adjustment of 1 3/4".

The tripod adapter has a similar mounting surface and clamping screw as that of the Blackbird camera stage and thus lets you quickly shift the camera between Blackbird and the tripod.

Made of stainless steel and anodized aluminum components, the resting stand is lightweight yet strong. When not shooting, the stand can be used to set down the stabilizer with the camera attached on a reasonably flat surface, in a safe and stable position. While shooting, the stand can be folded down.

Blackbird's compact case with die cut foam protective pads ensures safe storage and transport of the Blackbird and all its accessories. The chassis/stage gets separated from the T-bar to occupy less storage space inside the case and helps easily pack the entire system into the case.

A user manual and instructional DVD are included to quickly guide you through the setup.

"Great Rig!...Pretty Good...Love the option on the bottom for mounts, I actually use it to mount a tascam d70 under my camera rather than a tripod plate....I actually added a spring washer to mine to give a bit more tension, seems to have done the trick for the most part."

The MS-PRO Beholder 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer for Mirrorless Cameras from ikan supports cameras weighing up to 1.9 pounds. Designed for professionals, it is suitable for use with small cameras with a 1/4"-20 mounting screw hole, GoPro cameras (requires optional mount not included), and select smartphones (requires optional mount not included). The camera platform incorporates three locking levers that allow you to adjust and balance your camera on the gimbal without requiring tools.

A 32-bit controller with a 12-bit encoder help create smooth, accurate, and efficient stabilization for fast response and extended battery life. Three follow modes—pan-only, pan-and-tilt, and 3-axis (pan, tilt, and roll)—allow you to control which axes to stabilize and which to allow follow movement on. A built-in lock mode will hold the camera locked onto one point; and in any of the gimbal's modes, you can reposition the camera manually by holding it in place and having it hold that position. The built-in joystick allows you to override the follow mode and reframe the shot electronically, for smooth framing adjustment. You can also invert the gimbal for low-angle underslung shots. A built-in 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole allows you to mount the gimbal on a tripod. The unit is powered by three 18650 rechargeable batteries.

"Rock solid....Pro Quality...I don't know how I could have tried it before I bought it - but these were my problems so maybe it will help someone else....I'm pretty certain that if that one issue had not happened to me twice, I would give this device a 5-star review for this price range."

"solid stabilizer, works well...The monopod is a very nice addition I didn't think I'd use....This is a great stabilizer that's easy to use and has a solid feel to it....The rig comes with a stabilizing plate that you fasten to a flat, level object - you use this plate to rest the stabilizer while you balance it (that means you don't have to balance/make tweaks to your balance while holding it); it's very useful."
