Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit features the Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus 3-Axis Stabilizer and a dedicated Dual Handle that allows you to control the gimbal with two-handed operation. The Crane Plus supports mirrorless and DSLR cameras up to 5.5 lb and offers shutter and zoom control for select Panasonic and Sony cameras using included cables.

  • Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer

    Taking a step up from the Crane v2, the Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus is a three-axis handheld gimbal stabilizer offering MotionMemory, POV, Intelligent Object Tracking, and NightLapse modes. The Crane Plus supports a large payload capacity of up to 5.5 lb, and provides integrated control for select DSLR and mirrorless cameras. With 360° rotation along all three axes, and up to 45° of synchronized roll in POV mode, the Crane Plus offers a multitude of smooth, stabilized shooting angles. An all-in-one design and dedicated camera cables enable you to snap stills, and zoom with select cameras using controls on the Crane Plus handgrip.

    The versatile MotionMemory feature enables you to create and save custom moves, including time-lapse setups. Use MotionMemory to repeat your camera motion again and again with just the touch of a button. Use the POV mode to capture traditional, level point-of-view shots, or engage up to 45° of roll angle to create an off-level, "Dutch tilt" look. The Intelligent Object Tracking mode is useful for vlogging and otherwise automatically following a subject or object. Trace a box around your subject on your smartphone to start the Crane Plus tracking. The aptly named NightLapse feature on the Crane Plus enables you to create dramatic time-lapse videos at night, complete with extended exposures, streaking taillights, etc.

    The Crane Plus is designed for DSLR and mirrorless camera rigs weighing up to 5.5 lb, and includes a detachable lens support for long lenses. The included aluminum mini-tripod does double duty as an extended handgrip, and a 1/4"-20 mounting hole on the gimbal's bottom enables its use with monopods and other supports. This gimbal can also be controlled wirelessly via the downloadable ZY Play iOS/Android app. The Crane Plus is powered by the two included 26500 lithium-ion batteries, which feature a 12 to 18-hour runtime, and a three-hour average charging time.

  • 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.


    Compatible with Zhiyun Crane and Crane-M gimbals for camcorders, DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and smartphones
    Two-handed grip reduces user fatigue, increasing potential shooting time

Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus reviews

Crane Plus Stabilizer with Dual Handle is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It could be better but I like it. I love the included tripod. �I like the base plate used to mount your camera. �I use a manfrotto 323 RC2 quick release system and it works perfectly on the base plate. �What I don't like is there isn't a clear and intuitive way to remember what mode you are in. �Its almost maddening. �Also I don't like how the gimbal arm partially obstructs the monitor. �I am using this on the A73 so it doesn't have an articulating screen. � I would prefer that the gimbal somehow could gauge how much strength it needs to use, because going into the app settings in the middle of a shoot and changing the strength is annoying. �BUT I am glad it can adjust because for example I was using a very light lens that wasn't balanced and it would stutter while on strong settings but worked smoothly on medium strength. �Also a few times the gimbal will stutter when doing a move that requires tilting at certain angles. �Also I wish it came with a convenient way of locking it in place in such a way that it was easier to transport or strap to the outside of a bag without wobbling like a fish when off. �I try to keep it balanced and I have to throw it in a back pack, because there is no practical way to just strap it to my bag. �SOOOO... those are things that annoy me. � What do I like... It is a good gimbal. �It feels durable. �It is easy to adjust. �I can get professional smooth shots. �The motors are strong enough that If I balance for my Sony 28mm f2, I can put on my Sony 55m f1.8 and not make any adjustments (I should, but I work in a live environment where every second counts). �Good gimbal, but when I say that knowing that the second a better even more convenient device comes out I will immediately upgrade... This gets the shot and the job done, but it could be better.
