Crane 2S: Legend Continues

The legendary CRANE 2 series of 3-axis gimbals, which has been widely adopted and well-established among professional videographers, has a new masterpiece, CRANE 2S, which the ZHIYUN R&D team is proud to present to you. With its high load-bearing capacity and modular design, CRANE 2S provides reliable operation and superior performance even in the most challenging conditions.

Built for excellence

To successfully complete complex work tasks, videographers must constantly change different cameras, and CRANE 2S easily handles this problem. With its optimized control algorithms and powerful servo motors, the CRANE 2S easily handles large cameras such as the BMPCC 6K, Panasonic S1H, Canon EOS 1DX Mark II and Nikon D850. In addition, several optional accessories can be fitted to this gimbal.

On-site efficiency is essential

So that you don't miss any crucial shot, CRANE 2S features a new FlexMount system that greatly simplifies the setup process while protecting your camera with a dual security mechanism. You can even adjust the closing / opening force of the safety lock to suit your needs.

Vertical shooting made easy

With the growth of mobile traffic, videographers are expected to receive more requests for vertical content. CRANE 2S comes standard with a quick release vertical mount and a safety handle for high quality vertical photography.

Extended support for limitless possibilities

Designed for high performance teamwork, CRANE 2S is equipped with a dedicated slot for mounting an image transmitter.

Various mounting points are available for creative adaptations on the gimbal gimbal: One 1/4 ”screw hole on the back of the quick mount bar is for attaching the camera to a variety of devices such as sliders and tripods. There are also two 1/4 "castellated screw holes and one 3/8" screw hole.

Digital focus control

CRANE 2S supports digital focus control with an integrated gimbal wheel. In addition, improved damping of the focus wheel rotation allows more efficient use of the videographer's muscle memory for focus adjustment.

Note. Digital Focus Control is only available with compatible cameras and lenses. See List of Compatible Cameras.

Mechanical focus control

CRANE 2S pushes the boundaries of what is possible, not only in terms of load capacity, but also in terms of focus control at a professional level. Never miss the decisive moment with a redesigned built-in focus wheel and innovative focusing servo motors featuring ultra-low latency and high precision.

Note. Determine the compatibility of a particular lens according to the Camera Compatibility List and select from the gimbal menu which focusing servo the focus wheel will control if the gimbal is equipped with two focusing servos. Focusing servomotors sold separately.

Always in focus

Together with the TransMount imaging system, focusing drives provide focusing and zooming while monitoring shooting in real time. In addition, they will also be able to change the parameters and modes of the gimbal as needed.
Note. For more information on the operation of focusing servomotors, see the User Manual or visit the corresponding product page on the manufacturer's official website.

Large screen for more convenient operation

The new 0.96-inch OLED screen gives you a great view. With it, you can browse through all the menus in seconds and quickly switch between different modes.

Axle locking mechanism 2.0

The upgraded 2.0 axle locking mechanism has a two-phase locking design that completely eliminates the rotation of the gimbal stabilizer during travel or storage.

Maximum payload. Minimized weight

To enhance the practicality of the CRANE 2S and make it a reliable and durable tool, the stabilizer handle is made of carbon fiber, which facilitates the physical activity of the videographer without compromising the load capacity of the articulated drive.

Removable batteries for long runtime

CRANE 2S is equipped with 3 removable lithium-ion 18650 batteries, which provide continuous operation for 12 hours. For long-term tasks, the videographer can easily extend the gimbal's runtime by installing backup batteries.

More than just slow motion

Advanced cinematic features such as Panorama, Time Lapse (Slow Motion), Motion Lapse (Slow Motion) and Long Exposure Time Lapse are easily accessible from the CRANE 2S menu.
