Because of Barrel Extending during zooming, will ...

Because of Barrel Extending during zooming, will it be a problem using on a Sony FX6 on a Zhiyun Crane 4 Gimbal?
Asked by: Rajnesh
Motorized gimbals require balance to function properly and work against hardware failure/damage to your gear. The Zhiyun CRANE 4 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer Combo Kit (B&H # ZHCRANE4C) has a decent payload of 13.2 lb and can support the Sony FX6 Full-Frame Cinema Camera (Body Only), B&H # SOFX6. Though in combination with the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2 Lens (Sony E), the overall length of camera and lens could cause some balance and mobility issues with the motors/gimbal arms. Using the Tamron 70-180mm lens with a smaller camera on the Zhiyun CRANE 4, would need to have the lens barrel extended midway to adjust the balance, so that arms can move smoothly and keep from collapsing. Ideally, a gimbal that can support functionality for larger cinema cameras and lenses, the DJI Ronin 2 3-Axis Handheld/Aerial Stabilizer (B&H # DJRONIN2) would work.
