    Camera Control Cable for Crane Gimbal (Panasonic Cameras) is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crane + GH5 If you have a Crane and a GH5 -- you should own this cable. Simple as that. Check focus with native lenses and record without touching camera. Boom.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit with the Crane2 I asked Zhiyun to point me in the direction of a replacement control cable and they sent me a link to this cord. Upon receiving, it does not fit with the gh5/crane2 setup.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Short After explaining the salesperson that I'd be needing a cable to work with my gh2 until I could upgrade to a gh5 he sold me this. The cable would have to be three times this length to work with a gh2 and a crane v2. It was a complete waste of money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for GH3 Just wanted to note that this does work for GH3 if there are any GH3 users remaining besides myself.� You still have to change the settings in the app to get it to work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trying to correct my one star I gave it one star below, cuz it just wouldn't work after I followed all instructions for getting it set up properly. Well, I fired up the gimbal and GH5 The other day and it worked flawlessly. Didn't change anything... it just worked, and it was great to be able to make those adjustments from the gimbal itself. So, since I couldn't figure out how to edit my review, I'm making amends here... Works well, happy

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working I'm running this cable on my crane v2/GH5, and I can not get the GH5 (firmware current) to respond to the commands from the gimbal (firmware also current). I opened the app and linked it to the gimbal, like instructed, and then selected "Panasonic", like instructed... the gimbal responds to commands from the app, but the camera will respond to neither the shutter/record button, nor the switch controlling focus. I am, however, hearing a sound like my phone is taking a picture, obviously coming from the app, each time I press the camera icon (twice) to engage record, but no picture is being taken anywhere, phone or GH5, and record is not engaging. Camera set to auto or manual focus (native Panasonic lense) and no response with focus either, using the up/down switch looking control on the gimbal. Anyone see something I'm missing? Also, do you have to have the app open every time you use this cable to control the camera? Or is it just for setup?
