Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit features the Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 3-Axis Stabilizer, a dedicated Dual Handle, and a Bluetooth Remote Controller. The Dual Handle allows you to operate the gimbal with two hands, while the Bluetooth Remote makes it easier to control the gimbal's functions when it's used with the Dual Handle. The Bluetooth Remote can also be used from a distance when you have the Crane v2 mounted on a tripod or other support gear. The gimbal supports mirrorless and DSLR cameras up to 3.9 lb.

  • 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.


    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
    Capture smoother footage as movement is transferred from the operator's wrist to the body's core, increasing stability
    Integrated 1/4"-20 mounting threads on handles for attaching to a tripod or other support
    Use overhanded, or underhanded using the inverted mode
    Lightweight aluminum construction with rubberized grip surfaces

Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 reviews

Crane v2 Stabilizer with Dual Handle & Bluetooth Remote is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for entry level So I've only had this gimbal for a little over two weeks and am using and abusing it. The buttery smooth videos I'm able to create makes me happy, although I am a little disappointed that it doesn't handle much weight. Battery life is great so that's definitely a plus. I just wish I would've waited for the litte one day sale that BH had on the crane 2 because I bought the v2 bundle but it is what it is. Next purchase will be the ronin-s once I get the funds up for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money Bought this a while ago and after testing in a few different shoots with GH4, GH5 and A7sII cameras, it's a really good piece of gear. Lightweight, well built, easy to setup and with long-lasting battery life. My only gripes with it is that there is no battery display,the handle is a bit too smooth to handle for long periods of time and sweaty palms and that you need to buy a mini-tripod to keep it level when balancing. Otherwise, it's a great product.
