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.
