Product Description

The Zhiyun-Tech Crane is a 3-axis handheld gimbal stabilizer offering 360° rotation along all three axes. It offers button-powered, continuous rotation along the pan axis, and manual, non-stop circular rotation along the tilt and roll axes.

The Crane is designed primarily for compact mirrorless cameras weighing up to 2.65 lb, such as the Sony a7S and Panasonic GH4, and includes an attachable lens support for long lenses.



1. Built-in compact slip rings enable the gimbal to have all 3 axis 360 degrees unlimited rotation.

2.The first handheld gimbal with CCI (Camera Control Interface). With CCI, the camera's shutter and focus can be controlled by the buttons on gimbal's handle.

3.Quick, simple and tool-less camera mounting system saves time and effort.

4.The built-in wireless control module can be connected with Zhiyun’s gimbal remote controller or smartphone APP which can also be used for wireless control and firmware upgrade.

5.Innovative battery tray design supports both 18650 or 26650 batteries, provides 6 hours and 12 hours operating time respectively. The 26650 batteries are sold separately.

6.The industry's first to achieve three 32-bit MCUs (Microcontroller Units) running in parallel at 4k hertz. The number is far beyond the reach of any other gimbals.

7. With the automotive grade magnetic encoders attached to each motor, the gimbal can sense every 0.02-degree change intervals.

8. Three control modes give you flexible creativity and endless possibility.

9. Powerful MCUs which support floating point calculation, combined with Zhiyun’s efficient attitude control algorithm and advanced servo control algorithm, the CRANE is able to sense, compute then control the camera to a 0.01-degree accuracy, within 0.25 millisecond.
