Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus
22nd October 2018.m The Zhiyun-Tech Crane Plus is now DISCONTINUED & NO STOCK. Look to the Crane 3 Lab and Weebill Lab. You will find links on this page.
We had waited for what felt like a lifetime for the Crane 2 to come to market, for it's 3.2KG capacity but now Zhiyun offers a slightly cheaper and in my opinion, slightly smarter gimbal for camera gear up to 2.5KG.
One of the great features of the Crane Plus is it's "Smart Follow" feature which will track you (if you are on your own) or the subject as you move about. It is a bit like the Follow Me on DJI drones if you are familiar with them.
The Crane Plus also has "Motion Memory" all run via the App on your smart phone. I find the clever advances in technology so exciting.
It is worth mentioning that you will still need to learn how to use this and in fact any gimbal. You will have to learn to walk differently for instance, how to balance your camera and how to move in general. Still once you get your head around this, you will be ready for super smooth video.
Using the new MotionMemory feature with Crane Plus allows you to setup advanced camera movements and save them so Crane Plus will remember them for the future. It will even remember all of your timelapse settings like the interval, number of shots, duration, and more! Now, with a simple click of a button you can repeat the same moving shots over and over again. It’s like having your very own camera assistant everywhere you go!
Crane Plus adds a newly designed POV (Point of View) mode that allows for additional camera movement by providing up to 45 degrees of synchronous motion on the roll axis, What this means is that rather than Crane Plus keeping the camera level when you roll left or right, POV mode will move with you and roll your camera left or right, up to 45 degrees.
Even simpler, when you move, your camera moves with you. The addition of POV mode, along with the 3 other modes on Crane Plus give you the level of control and freedom you need to capture almost any shot possible. The only limitation is your imagination
Intelligent Object Tracking
Crane Plus supports object-tracking via phone app control (specific operation methods seen in the official tutorial:). Draw a box around the object you want to track on the phone screen, then your Crane Plus can easily track the moving object and shoot excellent scenes free hands.
A Massive Capable Payload of 2.5kg
Crane Plus is pushing the limits even further than before! Using our cutting-edge, 6th generation Instune Algorithm System to power the motors, Crane Plus can handle a massive weight capacity of up to 2.5kg (5.51lbs). Whether you’re using mirrorless cameras with kit lenses or your using professional grade DSLRs with heavier lenses, Crane Plus can now handle a significantly wider range of camera and lens combinations
In the past, gorgeous timelapse photography is only limited to daytime shooting. Now with Crane Plus arrives the NightLapse feature: A powerful new tool for creating gorgeous, long-exposure timelapses that add in a new dimension of motion and depth. Using Crane Plus with NightLapse, you can capture stunning star trails, moving nighttime traffic, capture the passage of time over beautiful nighttime landscapes, and all with the stunning motion and stability that only Crane Plus can provide
