Zhiyun-Tech Crane overview

  • 1Description

This B&H kit of the Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer and Dual Handgrip Kit is assembled to provide you with a gimbal stabilizer and handgrip system for extended shooting times while avoiding the fatigue that may accompany one-handed operation. Designed for mirrorless and DSLR cameras and capable of supporting longer lenses, the Crane v2 provides 360° rotation along the pan, tilt, and roll axes to keep your image stable while you move. Control can be exerted manually using the integrated 4-way joystick, or remotely over Bluetooth using the free Zhiyun Assistant app from your mobile device (iOS/Android).

Brushless motors offer high accuracy while maintaining low vibration and increased torque. And featuring a quick release system and tool-less balancing, you can mount and adjust your camera on the Crane v2 in under a minute. The included Dual Handgrip provides a method of comfortably supporting your gimbal with two hands, helping to reduce fatigue when operating your gimbal. The Dual Handgrip can be operated in normal or inverted mode, and is made from an aluminum alloy for durability.

  • Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer

    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.

    Note: The Crane v2 is the original Crane updated with a higher payload (3.9 lb) and higher-capacity batteries (12-18 hours).

  • Zhiyun-Tech Dual Handgrip for Crane/Crane-M Gimbals

    Use the Dual Handgrip from Zhiyun-Tech to reduce fatigue when operating your Crane or Crane-M gimbal. Holding the gimbal with both hands also produces smoother, more professional-looking footage when filming with your camcorder, gimbal-mounted DSLR, mirrorless camera, or smartphone. By transferring movement from your wrist to your body's core, this two-handed grip increases the time you can shoot comfortably. The versatile Dual Handgrip can be grasped overhanded, or underhanded (inverted mode).

    Constructed of a lightweight, durable aluminum alloy, the Dual Handgrip features thumb-lever fasteners, and rubberized handles for a secure grip. The handles detach from the crossbar for increased portability, and each handle incorporates a 1/4"-20 mounting thread for attaching to a tripod or other support for stationary shots.

Zhiyun-Tech Crane reviews

Crane v2 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer and Dual Handgrip Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stabilizer Mind you, I've only had it a few days. Nevertheless, it's very easy to jump right in. The gimbal doesn't have any trouble at all calibrating. One problem is that the side gimbal doesn't fully clear the handle if you're operating sideways. Also, because I have a Sony alpha, I have to buy a third-party cable to connect the gimbal to my camera.�I also still have to figure out the finer details of the phone app, but it at least allows you to control the crane from your phone. Nevertheless, it's super smooth, and it's not bulky at all. Thumbs up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zhiyun Support and Website is a Nightmare I purchased this product due to the numerous positive reviews by vloggers on youtube. It has become painfully obvious that these reviews must result of receiving free product. Before I address the product itself, let me cover the Support and Instruction from Zhiyun that is a total fail. First, I have no way of knowing what firmware version came with the V2 unit that I purchased. The Zhiyun Gimbal Tools for Windows is a totally different version than what is displayed in the upgrade directions on their website! It does not indicate what what the current version of software is. So, I decided to update the firmware, in the event it was an older version. This took an entire afternoon, and I have no way of confirming whether or not I was successful, since I can find no way of displaying the firmware version!!! The Zhiyun Website must have been built by a six year-old... it is the exact opposite of being intuitive! Nothing on it makes any sense. And the Android App... OMG! Apparently, there used to be a version that kind-of-worked. Now, the barcode sends you to a version called Zhiyun Play. I installed it, and it looks nothing like what the vloggers were using. When I start the app, some very limited control features show up as a foreground on my phone camera!!! Why is my phone camera on when I open the app ???? For a relatively expensive product, this should be much more straight forward. I do not have this an excess of time to spend trying to make use of an accessory! I would NOT suggest buying this product until Zhiyun does a total remake of all related software, apps, and firmware! And if they intend on selling tho the American Market, then they should hire some American Technical Writers to produce their Manuals and Support Instructions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! This gimbal is great with my A7sii. No problems out of the box. The batteries held up all day while I was shooting outside for a music video in 32 degree weather.� Impressed so far. It was easy to balance too! I will have to see if it holds up to the test of time!
