Zhiyun Crane 2. Zhiyun have established themselves as the leading handheld 3 axis brushless gimbal stabiliser manufacturer. The Crane 2 with its 3.5Kg payload for DSLR, Mirrorless and other professional cameras is way ahead of the competition.

ZHIYUN, has introduced the – Zhiyun Crane 2. This differs from the widely known Crane V2 & is a revolutionary progression. For the first time in the industry, it has integrated a tactile follow focus controller on its body and an OLED display combined with a quick control dial on its panel. This adds up to greater control of your gimbal shots.

The Crane 2 offers three levels of focus control, enabling you to fine-tune your focusing based on the lens being used.

For quick, convenient adjustment of your camera’s settings, the Crane 2 provides an interface similar to those found on most cameras. Two large buttons, and two smaller ones, on the handgrip are pressed or rotated to scroll through and choose parameters. An LED screen above the controls enables you to quickly and easily monitor your settings. The Crane 2 offers improved motor torque, response speed, and image stabilization enabling smooth, reliable moves.

  • The Zhiyun Crane Ver.2 comes with two 3600mAh batteries. These can power the new Zhiyun Crane 2 for around twelve hours.
  • The base plate of the new Crane has been completely overhauled & now it implements a dedicated quick release system. Also, on the right side of the new add-on you can attach the included lens support for your camera lens. You can easily unlock the quick release plate of the gimbal and attach your camera in the same way that you would attach a camera to a tripod, monopod or other support gear. This saves time preparing for your shoot.
  • Another major update for the Zhiyun Crane Ver.2 is the control layout. Better ergonomics provide much more convenient control of the device.
  • Finally, the Zhiyun Crane 2 now comes with a 3/8″-16 thread along with a 1/4″-20 adapter on the inside which gives more freedom and flexibility when mounting the gimbal to other additional third-party support gear.
  • The software and internal functionality of the Crane-2 is essentially the same as the previous model. It also provides the same load capacity of up to 2.65 lb (or 3.9 lb with the latest firmware updates).
