Zhiyun Crane Camera Gimbal Review

This video review by fenchel & janisch looks at the Zhiyun Crane camera gimbal which can work with camera/lens combos of up to 1.2kg.

The Zhiyun Crane is a hand-held 3-axis gimbal that is designed for small DSLRs and mirrorless cameras it can rotate all three axis 360 degrees and you can see its performance in the video (which looks fairly smooth and quiet).

Like most other gimbals it accepts both wireless controlling (via app) or using the bottoms on the unit itself to move the camera. The gimbal uses tool-less mounting system and has two internal batteries that are said to work contentiously for up to 2 hours (the manufacturer claims 6-12 hours but even 2 hours should be more than enough for most uses).

The Zhiyun Crane is priced around $650 on Amazon.
