Zhiyun-Tech GMB-CMF-04 Overview

The Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Max Servo Zoom/Focus Controller can be used interchangeably for zoom and focus control on the CRANE 3 LAB, CRANE 2S, WEEBILL-S, and WEEBILL LAB gimbals. It has a powerful-enough motor to control zoom, whereas the lighter-weight TransMount Lite is designed for focus control only.

The CRANE 3 LAB and CRANE 2S support up to two motors at the same time, and it's recommended to use the TransMount Max and TransMount Lite together if requiring both zoom and focus control on the CRANE. The WEEBILL-S and WEEBIL LAB, however, support only one motor, so the TransMount Max is recommended as the only solution because it can be used interchangeably for both functions.

Featuring a toolless design, the TransMount Max attaches on the gimbal using just the included thumbscrews. It can be controlled via the gimbal handwheel or the companion smartphone app. Secure it to the supplied support bracket and mounting rod using two thumbscrews, and attach this assembly to the bottom of the gimbal's baseplate with the third thumbscrew. Then, connect the servo to the gimbal with the provided USB cable, and connect the camera to the gimbal with one of the camera control cables the gimbal comes with. The USB cable connection provides zero-latency signal transmission.

Key Features
  • Can be used interchangeably for zoom and focus control
  • Recommended as the zoom solution for the CRANE 3 LAB and CRANE 2S, which support two motors at the same time, and as the sole solution for the WEEBIL-S and WEEBILL LAB, which support only one motor
  • Toolless design—assembles with the included support bracket and mounting rod and attaches to the bottom of the gimbal's baseplate using supplied thumbscrews
  • Connects to the gimbal via a USB cable and controls focus with zero latency

This focus controller is easy and fast to setup, works smoothly on all my lenses. it's a bit heavy though, but overall it does the job perfectly.

Highly recommend for the WEEBILL-S

I have found this a very useful addition to the Zhiyun Weebill-S. I would highly recommend this servo Zoom if you get the Zhiyun Weebill-S. It will make it easier to work with. Before this addition it was much more difficult to handle the camera and the gimbal simultaneously. With the addition of this add on it just takes a twist of a dial to adjust the zoom in and out.

Works Great!

I'm trying to improve my manual focus game, and this is a great-priced servo that works great. It will take some getting used to, but it is worth it in the end.

It is a really great addition to my WEEBILL-S

I used to use it with a Weebill-S, and everything went smoothly. I love it, until I switched to a Crane-3S. Zhiyun did something stupid. They disabled the use of Max Motor (this one) for Follow Focus, and only allow to use Lite Motor (the weak one) for the Follow Focus wheel. They only allow the Max Motor to be used with the Zoom Control. Now, if you have a Prime Cine lens, here comes the problem: - You dont have a Zoom ring, so no need to use Zoom Control - Your cine lens focus ring should be stiff/heavy (70% of the cases), that requires the power of the Max motor. == The Lite motor will never be able to drive those lenses. Meanwhile, the one that can, which is the Max, is disabled to use with Focus wheel. Why did they do that???

great service and great accessories

I am using this on a Crane 3 LAB. Unlike the gimbal itself, it was very easy after watching YouTube videos to install and use. Wish I had it on the gimbal for the last wedding. And I am using it with a Nikon Z6 with the 24-70 f4 lens.

Will this work with the Crane 2?
Asked by: Earl
The servo plugs into a dedicated WiFi attachment that provides power and communication to the servo. So, I don’t think it will work with the Crane 2. There are servos for this that can be attached and very useful. Search for Crane 2 follow focus etc.

depends on if you do pro work or not. I wouldn't rely on the cameras AF for paid work and would rather control the AF myself. but if you don't do paid work your cameras AF should be fine.

can this be use on crane 3s and be able to control both zoom and focus?
Asked by: Pourya
No it cannot. For Crane 3S or 3S-E it can ONLY be controlled from the zoom rocker on this gimbal and you cannot change it. Max motors are only able to be controlled from the zoom rocker and Lite Motors (currently only available in the combo package) can only be controlled from the focus wheel.
