Greater lifting capacity and focus wheel – these are the key features of the Zhiyun Crane 2. What else will you have to offer a new gimbal for the cameras?
Gimbale is a hot topic lately. I just had the opportunity to write Feiyu Tech a2000, a new generation of gimbala, and today we learn that Feiyu Tech's main competitor Zhiyun is getting something new. Currently, Zhiyun and Feiyu Tech are two of the most popular manufacturers of affordable gimbalas who are constantly trying to compete with new and more innovative solutions. Zhiyun Crane 2 will soon be available for sale, offering all-new possibilities.
The focus knob in gimbal
Sharpening the camera lens on a gimbal is a hard thing. Therefore, in the new model we will find the focus wheel . Sharpness can be precisely and quickly controlled in real time up to 3 levels. All this will be possible by using the new knob on the handle. So Zhiyun Crane 2 will offer a specific follow focus system. That sounds very interesting!
Feiyu Tech a2000 as one of the few downsides I reported lack of display. The new Zhiyun Crane 2 has not forgotten this yet, and we will get an OLED display that will give you a preview of the current mode or battery charge status.
Greater stability and greater lifting capacity
The manufacturer has improved some stability and reaction time by increasing the torque of the motors. Now they are more efficient, and this has resulted in an increase in maximum lifting capacity. This is from now on to be 3.2 kg . It's enough that he will not be afraid to set up Sony A7S II or Panasonica GH5 with a heavy lens. Can he even manage a small camera? It is also worth mentioning that the mounting plate will be compatible with the Manfrotto system, so that we can quickly switch, for example, between a tripod and a gimbal.
Price and availability
It also improved battery life. Zhiyun Crane 2 will be powered by three rechargeable batteries that will allow it to run continuously for 18 hours. All the parameters are impressive and suggest that we are getting ready to hit. For now, however , we do not know when the new gimbal will go to sale and what will be its price. You have to admit that the gimbali market is getting more and more interesting. New models offer more and more opportunities beyond the boundaries. With improved battery life and sharpening capabilities from the Zhiyun Crane 2, the Zhiyun Crane 2 can be a hit. Given the potential of Gimbali, their purchase is becoming more and more profitable . The prices of these devices are constantly decreasing – Zhiyun Crane will certainly be in the second generation. In addition, one gimbal can replace several other devices, such as steadicam, monopod, slider, or even a small camera faucet.
