The CRANE 3S PRO from Zhiyun-Tech is a powerful redesign of previous Zhiyun gimbals with the addition of detachable handle options, a large 14.3 lb payload, an updated axis-locking system, external power input, and the ViaTouch 2.0 motion control system. The CRANE 3S PRO also features numerous advanced features such as wireless video transmission, professional zoom and focus controllers, and an external battery option. It can also accommodate a wide range of camera sizes by utilizing a separately available extension module to extend the horizontal arm, which is now positioned at a 55° angle. The gimbal can stabilize camera loads up to 14.3 lb.

The 3S PRO has two options for the detachable, angled handle. The included SmartSling handle offers an ergonomic handle with an integrated joystick and control buttons, and the optional EasySling handle provides a simple, comfortable handgrip without controls. The handle enables you to seamlessly switch to underslung mode, whether with one or two hands, and achieve creative shots such as 330° roll shots as you move closer toward a subject. All the controls you need are provided at your fingertips at the top of the main handle along with an OLED status screen. The free Zhiyun iOS/Android app provides many of the same control functions as well as special features such as panorama, focus time-lapse, motion time-lapse, long exposure time-lapse, camera settings, and more.

You can power the 3S PRO using an internal battery, but if you need extra shooting time a DC port allows you to plug in the included Transmount PowerPlus battery pack that contains six 18650 batteries. The CRANE 3S PRO can be controlled using the updated ViaTouch 2.0 iOS or Android smartphone app via Bluetooth 5.0 for remote motion control and to manage the gimbal settings. Also included with the 3S PRO is the Transmount Image Transmission System transmitter, which allows you to connect your camera, mount the transmitter on the gimbal, and transmit your live camera view to a separately available Transmount receiver.

Nine accessory mounting threads are available around the gimbal to add a variety of Transmount or third-party accessories. Another major feature of the gimbal is a redesigned axis latch lock system consisting of a separate latch lock on each axis that provides solid locking in place without excess sway. This feature allows you to lock the individual axes to remember your balance positions when powering the gimbal off so you won't have to rebalance for each use. A smartphone clamp is also included with the 3S PRO so you can keep your smartphone secure while managing the gimbal movement.

Note:
The CRANE 3S PRO doesn't support many third-party 18650 batteries because it requires the slightly shorter kind made by Zhiyun-Tech, so only Zhiyun-Tech 18650 batteries are recommended.

Innovative Gimbal Design

Detachable, angled handle allows for two-handed operation; the SmartSling handle with integrated controls is included, with the choice of the optional EasySling handle, a simplified handle.

Aviation Grade Motors

Featuring more powerful motors and a different gimbal design from the CRANE 3 LAB, the CRANE 3S PRO achieves a greater load capacity of 14.3 lb.

Crafted Latch Design

The CRANE 3S PRO is designed with a locking latch next to each axis for saving the balance positions when powering the gimbal off for storage or battery swaps. When powered back on, the gimbal returns to its balance positions. This way you won't have to rebalance it every time you power it on.

ViaTouch Control System

The ViaTouch 2.0 Control System consists of a variety of controls that come up on the Zhiyun app and allow for framing shots, controlling certain gimbal movements, and adjusting camera settings.
PRO package includes Transmount Image Transmission System Transmitter, PowerPlus battery pack, zoom and focus controllers, and a smartphone clamp.

Are there any other brands of V-Mount batteries ...

Are there any other brands of V-Mount batteries that will safely power this unit through the D-tap to 1B lemo cable provided?
Asked by: Gregory
If you prefer to use V Mount batteries then just about any V-Mount Battery with a D-Tap out will work in its place. However it is worth noting that the Zhiyun-Tech's Power pack is not actually a V Mount battery. it is a housing that holds 6 of their 18650 batteries. It will not charge on V mount chargers or power any other V mount devices unless it is connected via the D-tap out. additionally if the powerpack gets depleted all you have to do is open up the power pack and replace the 6 18650 batteries that are inside it which are fairly inexpensive. The batteries that can replace the ones inside the included power pack are called the Zhiyun-Tech GMB-B118 18650 Lithium-Ion Battery (3-Pack) B&H # ZHGMBB118 MFR # GMB-B118
