For pro mirrorless / DSLR videographers
Elevate your production value with the Crane 2 or the new flagship gimbal, the Crane 3 that features a faster response speed, stronger motors, and 50% in noise reduction.
These 3-axis gimbals offer high-precision control and are lightweight and easy to use, ideal for capturing silky smooth footage on a pro shoot and getting close to the ground for low-angle shots. The gimbal’s rear arm is offset so you can see the back of the screen.
- Payload: The Crane 3 weighs more than the Crane 2 – 1.9 kg vs 1.25 kg – yet its sturdier frame offers an impressive payload of up to 4.5 kg, perfect for heavier setups. The Crane 2’s payload is 3.2 kg. Each also features a slow-fall system that ensures your camera doesn’t suddenly drop when powering off the stabiliser.
- Control: The quick control 4-way joystick dial is like an integrated extension of your camera – you can either press or rotate the dial to make various camera parameter settings such as TV, AV, ISO and EV, giving you seamless camera control independently from any software applications.
- Features: Integrated with an unprecedented follow focus wheel on the body, the Cranes allow ±0.02° precision real-time focus control through camera cable connection so that you can always keep your subject in focus while moving, setting free your camera for more dedicated tasks.
- Battery runtime: The Crane 3’s battery lasts about 7.5 hours, which is enough for shooting the whole day; however, the Crane 2’s battery provides extended shooting time to 10-18 hours. The intuitive interface design helps you easily identify the connection status, battery level, control mode and multiple camera params, giving you full control over every detail.
- Mounting options: A Crane mounted with the mechanical Servo Follow Focus motor allows real-time focus and adopts fast installation design that allows you to mount in only 60 seconds. The integrated universal mount plate makes it easier to balance your camera, and a 1/4”-20 threaded hole at the bottom of the stabiliser to fasten a tripod. Unlike the Weebill Lab, the Cranes do not have built-in stands, but each does include an attachable tripod stand.
