Zhiyun-Tech Crane-M overview

  • 1Description

This B&H kit of the Zhiyun-Tech Crane-M 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer and Dual Handgrip 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 small mirrorless cameras, smartphones, and action cameras, the Crane-M 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, enabling the Crane-M to achieve accurate responses of up to 0.01° within 0.25 millisecond. Featuring a quick release system and tool-less balancing, you can mount and adjust your camera on the Crane-M 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 Crane/Crane-M gimbal. The Dual Handgrip can be operated in normal or inverted mode, and is made from an aluminum alloy for durability.

    The Zhiyun-Tech Crane-M is a smaller, lighter version of the original Crane. It is designed for small mirrorless cameras, smartphones, and action cameras weighing between 4.4 oz and 1.4 lb. At the same time, it has the advanced features of the original as well as improvements over it. (Separately sold adapters from Zhiyun Tech are required for mounting phones and action cams.)

    The Crane-M provides 360° rotation along the pan, tilt, and roll axes via a large 4-way joystick. It can also be controlled remotely over Bluetooth using the free Zhiyun Assistant app from your mobile device (iOS/Android).

    The Crane-M operates on 32-bit triple-MCUs running in parallel at 4 kHz frequency. It also features brushless motors offering high accuracy while maintaining low vibration and increasing torque. Accuracy is ensured with a magnetic encoder in each motor and advanced stabilization algorithms. The Crane-M can achieve up to 0.01° of accuracy within 0.25 millisecond.

    Featuring a quick-release plate and thumbscrew at the mounting platform, the Crane-M balances very easily without any tools. All three axes can be adjusted to your preferences in about one minute.

    Multiple modes are available to select from. In Lock Mode, all three axes work together to keep the camera pointed in one position. The camera will stay still no matter how you move the handle. In Yaw-Axis Follow Mode, the Crane-M will only follow your pan movements, while in Pitch/Yaw-Axis Follow Mode, it will follow your pan and tilt movements. You can also switch to Inverted Mode at any time by simply flipping the handle over the camera. Inverted mode can be operated in conjunction with the Lock and Follow modes. In addition, the gimbal also has a Camera Control function with which shutter release can conveniently be triggered over a USB cable for select Sony cameras.

    A 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the bottom of the gimbal allows mounting on tripods, monopods, and other support gear. Having the Crane-M mounted is also the ideal way of using it when controlling it remotely over the mobile app. The Crane-M runs for approximately 12 hours on included 26500 lithium-ion batteries, which take about 3 hours to fully charge.

  • 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.
