Advanced 3-axis gimbal (hand held camera stabilizer) for video recording. Can be used with most system cameras on the market, both DSLR and mirrorless models.
Equipped with follow focus function (Canon only) and control panel for adjusting various camera functions. An OLED screen provides clear and easy to read information about camera and gimbal settings. Zhiyun Crane 2 has 18 hours of operation time and can handle a maximum load (camera + lens) of 3.2 kg.
Control focus and camera settings
Zhiyun Crane 2 is the world's first 3-axis stabilizer with built-in follow-focus function for Canon (Note: No other brands). The camera is connected with a cable to the stabilizer, and a control wheel on the side allows you to quickly and easily adjust the focus in three levels with very high precision (down to ± 0.02°).
An innovative control panel consisting of a four-way multifunction button and a quick control dial also provides Crane 2 capability to adjust camera functions such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation. The same controls are also used to adjust the stabilizer itself. The settings are clearly displayed on an OLED screen. It also shows the stabilizer's battery level.
Stronger, more efficient, faster
A new motor design gives 50% more power than previous models, which means that the Zhiyun Crane 2 can carry a total weight of 3.2kg (camera plus lens). At the same time, updated algorithms provide a 100% improvement in response time, which means smooth and stable recordings even under difficult conditions. Crane 2 can compensate for a tilt angle between -135° and + 185°, as well as unlimited panning and roll (360 °).
The built-in rechargeable batteries have a total capacity of 6000 mAh and can provide up to 18 hours of continuous use. You can even charge some of Sony's mirrorless camera models via Crane 2 (power cable included).
When the stabilizer is turned off, a slow-fall system activates and lands your camera nice and steady to avoid a sudden drop that could otherwise harm your equipment. The same thing applies if the battery suddenly runs out of juice.
By using a professional quick release plate (Manfrotto 501 type, included) the camera is easily and securely mounted on the Crane 2.
