Stabilize Small Cameras with the New Zhiyun-Tech CRANE-M2 Handheld Gimbal

If you've been wanting to recreate the smooth, stylish shots you've seen in other videos, but you have a variety of cameras that other stabilizers don't support, the new Zhiyun-Tech CRANE-M2 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer adds the same stability to your own vlog, movie, or social videos with your light, mirrorless, or action camera, as well as for your smartphone. Since the single-handle CRANE-M2 is lightweight, ultra-portable, and supports cameras up to 1.6 lb, it doesn't add much weight to your already lightweight camera and won't put additional strain on your arm or shoulder.

The CRANE-M2 supports a Bluetooth connection to your camera via Zhiyun's ZY Play smartphone app for control and configuration, and it can also connect directly to a Wi-Fi enabled camera that supports remote zoom, shutter, and video run/stop. Its connection status, current mode, and battery level displays on its bright OLED screen so you're always on top of your gimbal's operation. The handle also features a zoom rocker, making it easy to control your camera's zoom when connected via Wi-Fi.

The gimbal supports six preset modes for a wide range of creative options. PF mode mimics your left-right panning of the gimbal, which comes in handy when performing hyper-lapse shots; F mode mimics the movement of the handle so you can create natural movement with your own body; L Mode locks down the gimbal to perform a steady shot in a single direction; POV mode loosens up the gimbal to allow 360° motion on all three axes for full camera autonomy; Vortex mode allows you to perform barrel-roll type shots for stylish follow shots; and GO mode performs fast-pan and tilt motions for dramatic action shots.

Its quick-release design allows you to mount and unmount your camera quickly with one button press, and it also allows for quick balancing and rebalancing of your camera with scale markings and a memory-lock feature. The fold-down, locking design allows the gimbal to be packed up safely for transport. The CRANE-M2 battery provides up to seven hours of run time and can be charged by DC power over USB, or even by a power bank.
