The Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2 3-Axis Stabilizer is a handheld stabilizer that supports DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and camcorders that weigh up to 7 lbs. Key features include:

  • Supports up to 7 lbs.

  • Intuitive controls and smooth operation

  • Up to eighteen hours of battery life in a single charge

  • Limited follow-focus and charging capabilities

Intuitive Interface. The Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2 3-Axis Stabilizer offers three levels of focus control, giving you the ability to make precision adjustments. Its handgrip includes two large buttons and two smaller buttons that let you easily cycle through and select camera parameters. You can use the LED situated just above the controls to monitor your camera and stabilizer settings.

Smooth Operation. The Crane-2 offers fast response, smooth motion, and reliable image stabilization.

Long Battery Life. The three included 18650 li-ion batteries give you a combined 6000 mAh capacity, allowing you to shoot for up to eighteen hours in a single charge.

Limited Follow-Focus Compatibility. This crane offers three-level follow-focus control for Canon DSLRs and mirrorless cameras released after 2008 with original Canon autofocus lenses. This is purely an electronically-controlled system, so don’t expect true follow-focus-like results.

Limited Charging Capability. You can use this gimbal to charge and power select Sony cameras, so that you don’t have to swap out camera batteries.

Additional Features. The “slow-fall” feature keeps your camera from dropping quickly and possibly sustaining damage when you power down the Crane-2. Additionally, this rental includes a Manfrotto-standard quick-release plate so that you can quickly mount and unmount your camera.
