About this deal

Mine actually came off when I carried the gimbal in a backpack, so either leave the gimbal in the case when travelling or take it off and keep it separately in a box or pouch. To make everyone a true filmmaker in their daily lives, ZHIYUN brings a new handheld stabilizer designed for multiple devices for users of all levels.

It’s a credit limit that’s attached to your PayPal account which you can use for your online purchases. If you are thinking of venturing into videography and looking for an entry gimbal, check out the compact ZHIYUN Crane M2, compatible with a variety of lightweight mirrorless, compact, and action cameras, as well as smartphones. It is worth remembering, however, that you’ll still get better image quality overall if you use the Crane-M2. To make every one a true filmmaker of their daily lives, ZHIYUN brings a new handheld stabilizer designed for multiple devices for users of all levels. I struggled to connect the gimbal to my camera, which may be due to my camera's connection more so than the gimbal itself; however, that meant I was not able to start recording by using the start button on the gimbal grip.CRANE-M2 features a unique locking pin and latch design to prevent the axes from swinging around during travel.

The variety of modes is a welcome addition to the original Crane-M which was introduced almost three years ago. Balancing your camera is actually fairly easy and once you have mastered it you’ll be able to do it in minutes. We've been using a full production version of this 120 fps sports camera, to see what you gain (and, perhaps, lose).Lastly, it has an OLED display, which shows battery level, connection status, and your selected shooting mode.

This gimbal is well suited for those who use videography as an addition to their lifestyle or even business and less so for those who specialize in pro video work and need to use more substantial camera and lens combinations.Inside the box is the gimbal itself and selection of accessories: one mini tripod, which attaches to the bottom of the gimbal’s handle; a USB-A to USB-C cable; a wrist strap; and a spring-loaded clip for holding your smartphone safe and secure. I have been using the crane M2 for several weeks now and have been extremely pleased with its performance. Then you hit continue and, finally, go back to “smartphone mode”, select Motion Timelapse mode again and tap Start. The M2 S packs all the great features of the M2 and adds even more functionality, including a higher payload, longer runtime, PD fast charging, a smaller handgrip, stylish two-tone design, Bluetooth 5 support, a redesigned quick-release camera plate, and a built-in LED light. This was my first mistake, when I thought I would just learn it on the go, but looking back, I would recommend thoroughly reviewing each mode first.

By adjusting the motor strength to high, you can attach cameras weighing up to 720g to the Zhiyun Crane-M2’s mounting plate, which means, as long as they fit, you can stabilise some quite beefy cameras. Although I did not have the best start when trying to stabilize my camera or when trying to connect it to Wi-Fi, I'd be happy to put that experience past me, because this gimbal could be a really useful piece of equipment so as long as it fits your style of shooting and more importantly, it fits with your camera. With a tagline of making "every one a true filmmaker of their daily lives," ZHIYUN has brought a three-axis stabilizer, which is designed to perform for multiple devices and for users of all levels. Over built-in Wi-Fi, the gimbal is able to sync up with a Wi-Fi-enabled camera that supports remote zoom, shutter, and video start/stop control. Furthermore, over built-in Bluetooth, the camera syncs up with a free-download ZY Play mobile app for iOS and Android for additional capabilities.So if you rely on full control through the grip to zoom or start and stop recording, better make sure first, the gear is actually compatible. One of the best improvements over the original Crane-M is the mounting plate which can slide to the left or right to balance and mount the camera precisely.
