The Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 3S Handheld Stabilizer is a 3-axis gimbal that supports DSLRs & mirrorless cameras weighing up to 14.3 lbs and is an update to the Crane-2 3-Axis Stabilizer. Key features include:

  • Supports up to 14.3 lbs

  • Rear grip adds additional stabilization

  • Up to 12 hours of battery life

  • Wide camera compatibility

Updated Design. On top of significantly bumping up the payload weight from the previous 7-pound limit found on the Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2 3-Axis Stabilizer to 14.3 pounds, ergonomics have been much improved with removable grips on the bottom and rear of the gimbal. An axis-locking system, external power input, and ViaTouch 2.0 remote control system all ensure the CRANE 3S is a much more powerful tool than its predecessor.

Get A Grip (Or Two). The most striking feature of the CRANE 3S is the additional grip that juts off the rear of the gimbal. This additional grip means balance during underslung modes is much improved and that you can make any necessary gimbal adjustments via the grip’s joystick and buttons while you do it. A tripod/grip also screws onto the bottom of the gimbals for a second point of contact.

Long Battery Life. The three included 18650 li-ion batteries give you a combined 7800 mAh capacity, allowing you to shoot for up to 12 hours in ideal conditions.

Additional Features. The CRANE 3S ViaTouch 2.0 Control System consists of a variety of controls for framing shots, controlling certain gimbal movements, and adjusting camera settings, and it even supports SyncMotion, a motion control system using the physical movements of your remote control device. The gimbal also features a latch system that holds positional balance when powered off and prevents excess joint sway.
