Gain greater control over your gimbal shots with the Zhiyun-Tech Crane-2, a 3-axis handheld stabilizer with an integrated follow focus control. The Crane-2 supports DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and camcorders weighing up to a solid seven pounds. Connect your camera (with an autofocus lens) to the gimbal via cable, then adjust focus using the large thumbwheel on the handgrip. The Crane-2 offers three levels of focus control, enabling you to fine-tune your focusing based on the lens used, and the shot itself.
For quick, convenient adjusting of your camera's settings, the Crane-2 provides an interface comparable to those found on most cameras. Two large buttons, and two smaller ones, on the handgrip are pressed or rotated to scroll through and choose parameters. An LED screen above the controls enables you to quickly and easily monitor your settings. The Crane-2 offers improved motor torque, response speed, and image stabilization over earlier Zhiyun models, enabling smooth, reliable moves.
Shoot up to a whopping maximum of 18 hours—the Crane-2's three 18650-type batteries provide 6000mAh of capacity. Select Sony cameras may be charged through the gimbal, eliminating time otherwise spent swapping out camera batteries. Additional Crane-2 features include a Manfrotto-standard quick release plate for rapid camera mounting, and a "slow-fall" function that protects your camera from a sudden drop when the stabilizer is powered down.
The Zhiyun-Tech Focus Motor for Crane 2 attaches to Crane 2 gimbal stabilizers and provides a manual motorized focus control solution. An included support rod attaches the motor straight to the gimbal. The motor can be driven using the control knob on the Crane 2, or wirelessly using the separately available remote control for the Crane 2.
The motor's built-in drive gear features 24 teeth with 0.8 MOD spacing for interfacing with industry-standard cinema lenses, or for DSLR/mirrorless camera lenses with lens gears on them. Two universal lens gears are included so you can use the motor with your current lenses, even if they don't have gearing. The motor and all the included accessories pack into the included zippered storage case when not in use.
