Once again Zhiyun shows the world why they are the leading gimbal manufacturer for content creators, this time with their brand new Zhiyun Crane 2S. It is a lightweight 3-axis gimbal that can take a lot of payloads and is packed with creative functions. This is the gimbal for the content creator on the go! When Zhiyun released Crane 2 for almost three years ago they revolutionized the gimbal industry with a gimbal available for everyone. With the new and improved Crane 2S, you´ll find several new exciting features that will boost your creativity. The Zhiyun Crane 2S gimbal is equipped with the new 9th generation algorithm; that improves the responsiveness of each axis while maintaining a dynamic stabilization.
The grip handle of the Zhiyun Crane 2S gimbal is made out of carbon fibre so the gimbal feels lighter in your hand. The built-in handwheel on the side of the handle has been upgraded to allow for very low delay when controlling an add-on lens motor, sold separately, so you can make adjustments with more precision. (When using both a focus and zoom motor, you can set the handwheel to control your choice of one or the other.)
On the bottom of the handle is a 1/4″-20 thread that allows you to attach the included mini tripod to be used as a stand or as an extension that can be held with the other hand for more control. Designed for high-efficiency team collaboration, CRANE 2S is equipped with a dedicated slot; for installing image transmission transmitter and multiple mounting points: One 1/4″ screw hole on the back of the quick release plate for the camera to shift between different devices such as sliders and tripods; Two 1/4″ screw holes with crown gear and one 3/8″ screw hole on the gimbal for creative adaptation.
Highly optimized in motor control algorithms and motor power, Zhiyun Crane 2S now handles large cameras; such as the BMPCC 6K, Panasonic S1H, EOS 1DX Mark III with ease. Upgraded built-in focus controller and servo follow focuses that features ultra-low latency and high precision ensures; that you never miss any decisive shots. The new 0.96″ OLED screen offers a bigger vision that enables you to go through the entire menu within seconds and switch between different modes swiftly. Just like the previous LAB and Weebill models, Crane 2S has the same creative modes (Pan Following, Locking, Following, Full-Range POV, Vortex, Go mode) to ensure full creativity. The gimbal also features advanced cinematic features such as Panorama, Timelapse, Motionlapse, and Long Exposure Timelapse.
With mobile traffic gaining the upper hand and TikTok and Instagram Stories increasing in popularity; Zhiyun Crane 2S now comes with a vertical quick-release mount and a safety knob; to make it easier to shoot vertical video. On the gimbal there is a slot for installing image transmission transmitter and three new mounting points; on the gimbal makes it easier to attach monitors, microphones or to switch between tripod or sliders.
To make sure that you won’t miss any decisive shots, Crane 2S features brand new FlexMount System; which simplifies the setup process while at the same time secures your camera with a double safety mechanism. You can even adjust the tightness of the safety lock to suit your needs. The CRANE 2S is outfitted with 3 removable 18650 Li-ion batteries which offer up to 12-hours of runtime. For time-demanding tasks, videographers can easily prolong the runtime of the gimbal with backup batteries.
Zhiyun Crane 2S Gimbal supports digital focus control via the built-in focus wheel on the gimbal. In addition, the rotation dampening of the focus wheel has been improved, enhancing videographers’ muscle memory for pulling focus. We can buy it from TOMTOP at $599 in Flash Sale.
