We have mentioned time and again that one of the best investments you can do to improve your photography is by buying a gimbal for your DSLR. This is because you don’t get stabilization on DSLRs and you need it while travelling and shooting on bumpy roads or even while walking.
Therefore, we have a great new product from Zhiyun which is Crane 2. If you have heard of how good the Zhiyun Crane was, you can understand how much better the Zhiyun Crane 2 would be.
Now, you get some great features on the Zhiyun Crane 2 such as digital and mechanical to follow focus which means it focuses based on your movements as well as manually too. This helps you in achieving dolly zoom for a lot of scenarios too which looks great for quality videos.
Also, since we are talking about DSLRs so we need to also find out how much the Zhiyun Crane 2 can handle in terms of payload. So the answer to your question is quite a lot of payload since Zhiyun says its Crane 2 can have a max of 3.2 kg payload which is well below what normal DSLRs weigh.
There is also an intuitive OLED display on this gimbal to see battery level, connection status and since it is an OLED, it does not consume much battery too.
You have a quick control dial design tool which lets you set focus on your DSLR, control the gimbal movements, as well as, you get certain rotations with the gimbal that will make your production quality with this gimbal better. You can also set your ISO, AV, TV and other adjustments right from the outside too.
