More power, extra features & improved response

It boasts a whopping 18-hour runtime, precise altitude compensation and real-time follow focus, as well as an intuitive quick control dial and OLED display so you can quickly view and change key camera settings.

  • Comes with BONUS Zhiyun Follow Focus Controller for Crane 2

Real-time follow focus  

Simply connect your camera to the gimbal via a cable to enjoy precise real-time focus control via a follow focus wheel on the body of the Crane 2. Accurate to +-0.02-degrees, this allows you to always keep your subject in focus as you move and shoot. Not only will you love the smooth and effective handling, but you’ll also be freeing up your camera for other functions as required!

Impressive 3.2kg maximum weight

Enjoy peace of mind knowing your crane won’t ever get weighed down. The Crane 2 sets the bar high with an impressive maximum payload of 3.2kg, mountable by all current models of DSLR and mirrorless cameras. This is in part thanks to the 6th Generation Instune Algorithm System which has seen the crane double motor torque while also improving noise reduction capabilities by 20 per cent.

A whopping 18-hour runtime

Thanks to three high-energy efficiency 18650 rechargeable batteries, the Crane 2 can run for up to a whopping 18 hours with 6000mAh capacity. So you can keep shooting for longer, without having to stop and recharge. Another convenient factor is that it allows convenient real-time charging to the camera even when your camera is without batteries!

Instant Precise Altitude Compensation 

The Crane 2 flaunts a cutting-edge attitude compensation system and unmatched anti-shaking stabilisation to ensure superior performance and, ultimately, deliver beautifully smooth video footage. With a pioneering 32-bit x three high-speed MCU parallel control technology, you’ll notice the huge 100 per cent improvement in respond speed.

Intuitive OLED Display

You’ll love the OLED display on the Crane 2! Offering more intuitive interface control, the OLED display allows you to quickly and easily check details such as the control mode, battery level, connection status and a number of camera parameters, so you always have key information on hand to easily reference while you’re shooting on the go.

Quick control dial for intuitive handling

On the Crane 2 you can control a number of camera parameter settings on the crane itself using the quick control dial on the control panel – featured on the handgrip, just below the OLED Display. This enables intuitive handling and is designed to be like an integrated extension of your camera. Either press or rotate the quick control dial to adjust settings such as TV, AV, ISO and EV for fast and easy control right at your fingertips.
