The Zhiyun Crane 3-Axis gimbal is a single-handle motorised stabiliser designed for mirrorless cameras that minimises unwanted camera shake. It offers motorised 3-axis compensation to create smooth high production value footage that can help make your videos look even more professional.
Unparalleled Freedom of Movement
Built-in compact slip rings enable the gimbal to offer 360° of unlimited rotation along all 3 axes - roll, pitch and yaw. The unlimited rotation allows immense flexibility in controlling camera angles while allowing manual panning and tilting to capture sweeping camera movement.
High Camera Stability
Three brushless motors provide the strong and precise torque required to counteract vibrations, shakes or other unexpected movements during shooting. When the system is operating in the locked mode the horizon will remain always level while the camera is insulated against bumps & jolts. Automotive grade magnetic encoders attached to each motor, allow the gimbal to sense miniscule 0.02° change intervals, creating vibration-free, stable and smooth cinematic video.
Intelligent Control System
The gimbal is equipped with three 32-bit Micro Controller Units (MCU) running in parallel at 4 kHz that calculate the appropriate drive for the individual servos. The MCU’s implement a honeycomb core algorithm to provide ultra-fast and accurate movement compensation. The system allows the gimbal to sense, compute and control the camera with 0.01-degree accuracy, within 0.25 milliseconds.
High Quality Motors
The super-silent motors ensure the audio recording is free of un-desirable motor noise, while an energy efficient motor design consumes low power so you can film for a long time between charges.
Single Handed Operation
The gimbal is designed for easy one hand operations. A conveniently located 5-way step-less rotational joystick on the handle allows manual control of the camera angle and switching between modes with your finger.
