Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal

The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus is a 3-axis handheld motorised gimbal designed to stabilise video and stills on DSLR, mirrorless cameras and camcorders. What sets the Zhiyun Crane Plus apart from other motorised gimbals is its very nifty object-tracking feature, simply mount a mobile device on-top of a mounted camera, frame the subject on the device, and the gimbal will rotate to follow your subject (or even yourself) as it moves.

The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus is able to support up to 2.5kg of camera gear, making it more than adequate to support a full frame DSLR camera, mirrorless camera, or compact camcorder; even with accessories such as microphones and/or video lights. The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus free's users from lugging heavy video tripods and shooting from stationary positions, the Zhiyun Crane Plus is compact, smart and intuitive enabling you to shoot creative video with less restrictions.

Other great features include: Four shooting modes, 360 rotation along pan, roll, and tlit axes, 4-way stepless joystick control, zoom control (for select Sony kits), and up to 18 hours of battery life.

2.5kg Payload
The ZhiyunTech Crane Plus gimbal supports a heavy payload of up to 2.5kg of camera gear; this means that the Crane Plus can stabilise a full frame DSLR camera, mirrorless camera, or compact camcorder; even with accessories such as microphones and/or video lights.

4-way stepless joystick with motor force control
The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus gimbal offers 360 rotation across pan, tilt, and roll axes.

Four shooting modes
Four different shooting modes allow you to get creative with the Crane Plus gimbal. The modes allow you to: lock the pan and tilt, pan left and right only, pan and tilt the camera freely, and allow up to 45 degrees of synchronous motion.

POV mode with 45 synchronous motion
The Crane Plus adds a newly designed POV (Point of View) mode that allows for additional camera movement by providing up to 45 degrees of synchronous motion on the roll axis, What this means is that rather than Crane Plus keeping the camera level when you roll left or right, POV mode will move with you and roll your camera left or right, up to 45 degrees.

Quick and tool-free setup
Cameras are attached by securing a simple thumbscrew without any tools, and full setup can be achieved within a few minutes.

1/4" thread and mini tripod
A 1/4" threaded mounting hole on the bottom allows users to mount the Crane Plus Gimbal on monopods, tripods, and various other support equipment. A mini tripod is included.

Wireless control
The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus can be controlled wirelessly from an iOS/Android app (available from Zhiyun-Tech) via Bluetooth.

Up to 18 hours of battery life
The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus gimbal runs on two 26500 batteries, which feature a 12-18 hour runtime.
