Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2S PRO Overview

The CRANE 2S PRO is a bundle featuring the Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 2S gimbal with all its standard accessories, plus several additional accessories that allow for a more professional workflow with the gimbal.

The CRANE 2S supports larger cameras such as the Blackmagic Pocket 6K, Panasonic S1H, and Canon EOS 1DX Mark II. Key features of the gimbal include vertical camera mounting, six operational modes, low-delay handwheel performance, dedicated mounting points for adding pro-level accessories, and cinematic features accessible via the companion iOS/Android app.

The additional TransMount Image Transmitter 2.0 attaches under the camera plates on the gimbal and provides low-latency 60 ms 1080p30 H.265 transmission up to 328'. The TransMount Control Motor 2.0 is a rod-mount servo that allows for focus and zoom control via the gimbal handwheel with only a 100 ms delay. The rod, data cable, and all necessary accessories come included with it. The Sling Grip Handle attaches to the gimbal as an additional handgrip for underslung shots and can be used for extra balance for all other shots as well. The DualCam Extension Module allows you to attach a second camera on top of the main one. Securing to the gimbal, it allows you to easily attach/remove a second camera using a camera plate included with it.

Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 2S Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer

A follow-up to the Crane-2, the Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 2S has been highly upgraded to better suit the needs of filmmakers. Featuring a new-generation 9th Instune Algorithm that improves the responsiveness of each axis, the CRANE 2S is capable of stabilizing large cameras such as the Blackmagic Pocket 6K, Panasonic S1H, and Canon EOS 1DX Mark II along with accessories. (Please visit the Zhiyun website for a full list of compatible cameras and lenses.)

To support a collaborative process, the CRANE 2S offers dedicated mounting points for attaching an optional Zhiyun-Tech TransMount transmitter. Another new feature, integrated to support the growing demand for social media content, is a vertical quick release mount that enables you to set your camera up vertically. Besides this, a new FlexMount system is used for mounting your camera the standard way. This technology simplifies the mounting and setup process while securing your camera with a double-safety mechanism. The axis-locking mechanism for balancing a camera has also been improved with a two-phase locking design. The axis-locking mechanism additionally ensures that there's no movement of the gimbal components during travel or storage.

The grip handle of the gimbal is made out of carbon fiber so the gimbal feels lighter in your hand. The built-in handwheel on the side of the handle has been upgraded to allow for very low delay when controlling an add-on lens motor, sold separately, so you can make adjustments with more precision. (When using both a focus and zoom motor, you can set the handwheel to control your choice of one or the other.) On the bottom of the handle is a 1/4"-20 thread that allows you to attach the included mini tripod to be used as a stand or as an extension that can be held with the other hand for more control.

Using the companion iOS/Android mobile app, advanced cinematic functions such as panorama, time-lapse, motion-lapse, and long exposure time-lapse can be performed with the gimbal to achieve creative results. Many of the gimbal's parameters can be adjusted via this app, while many key modes and parameters can be accessed directly from the 0.96" OLED screen right above the handle.

The CRANE 2S also supports a variety of dedicated Zhiyun-Tech TransMount accessories, which include servo motors. The quick release plate included with the gimbal is compatible with many common tripod heads so you can efficiently move your camera between the gimbal and tripods, sliders, and other camera supports. Also included are a lens control and multiple camera control cables to allow for a comprehensive workflow. The CRANE 2S runs for up to 12 hours on three included batteries, which are rechargeable using a supplied triple charger.

Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2S PRO Reviews

A Must Have!

By Kenneth
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-25

With an EOS R5 and RF lenses there is a lot of weight the motors must handle which this gimbal Crane 2S has handled well. Haven't put the gimbal through vigorous testing but just from putting together and simple tests it feels well built and has plenty of room to add my accessories.

Great Product But......

Overall, this gimbal has amazing features and a great quality but I have had some issues with it. First of all I dont get why zhiyun design this gimbal with a 90 degree angle, its so annoying because i can't see the screen of my camera because it can just tilt, but i didn't care that much because i saw so many people that has modified that arm to a 30 degree angle and it seems to work perfectly, the problem is that 2 of the screws came stripped and i can't unscrew them to make the modification. Now i have to stick to that arm angle and i can't return it because I already left the country and don't know when Im coming back.

Solid gimbal

I basically use the gimbal for music videos and church service. What I like is the fact that I can control my canon 5dmk3 from the gimbal. The transmitter unit is just a game changer it makes it very easy to do a follow shot.

Awesome features!!!

Works amazing, has awesome features, when your camera and add in's are loaded up it will be very heavy. Need to offer different way to hold it

Easy to use, easy to figure out

I love the grip with the sling handle, being able to support with one handle in front and one in back. I've heard from some that this is awkward for them, but I actually prefer it to two hands on bottom or two hands on side handles. This front-back holding method allows for easy transition between high and ground-level holds. I tried to put my BMPCC 6k pro on here, and while it can definitely handle the payload, there is not enough clearance for the wide body, unless you were to add counter weights. That said, this is perfect for larger camera bodies (large dlsrs, smaller budget-friendly cinema cameras) with more compact width. For my BMPCC 6k pro, I will be trying out the 3S. Batteries took a very long time to charge to 100, but lasted on a 4 hour shoot of continuous use. Balancing this out before auto-tuning is extremely easy. Would highly recommend. If you have a BMPCC 6k pro, go for the 3S for the extra swing clearance.

Amazing

I'd like to add to My last review, it only took minutes to balance. And the build quality is super impressive. All aluminum with carbon fiber. No plastic. The only gripe I have is direction were not great. I had to revert to YouTube to see how to balance, etc...

Does this work with a Nikon d5
Asked by: Heath
Yes, using a Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 2S PRO (B&H# ZHCRANE2SPRO) it will be possible both to support and stabilize a Nikon D5 DSLR Camera Body with Storage Kit (Dual CF Slots) (B&H# NID5CFK2) when fitted with an appropriate lens. There is no listing for such a combination, but small lenses should be fine. The extremely similar D6 is explicitly listed as compatible but the gimbal was not tested by the manufacturer with the earlier D5. Nevertheless, it will definitely be able to stabilize a D5 body as well.
