Zhiyun launches Crane-M2 for smartphones, small cameras

Zhiyun has announced the Crane-M2, price tag $269, a new 3-axis gimbal stabiliser designed for use with smartphones, action and compact cameras.

The Zhiyun Crane-M2 supports a payload of 720g, meaning it really is only going to support compact cameras at its max, but it has a number of interesting features.

The Crane-M2 provides seven hours of battery life on a single charge and uses built-in WiFi and Bluetooth to control the camera remotely through the Crane-M2 via the ZY Play app.

The unit itself weighs just 500g, and there’s also an OLED display on the handle for checking your settings.

Shooting modes include:

PF Mode: The camera pans as you turn the gimbal left and right. One of the favorites for travelers. A must-have for hyperlapse.

F Mode: The camera will follow the handle movements. Shoot everywhere as you like.

L Mode: The camera direction is locked so you won’t miss a shot in any situation.

Full-Range POV Mode, allows 360┬░synchronous movement on all three axes, offering an immersive experience like never before.

Vortex Mode, gives you the freedom to make 360┬░barrel shots in all dimensions.

And with Go Mode, you can capture every fast movement without missing a single beat.
