Zhiyun Crane M


The Crane-M is a professional camera stabilizer with a payload weight of approx. 125g to 650g. The Crane-M is suitable for a large number of compact digital cameras available on the market and at the same time closes the gap between smartphone and DLSM cameras, even action cameras can stabilize the Crane. Weighing only 740g, the Crane M weighs less than the Crane, but also has three endlessly rotating axes and a Bluetooth interface.

The Crane-M can be used for camera control. Simply connect the stabilizer to the camera with a USB cable and you can adjust the zoom while shooting movies.

Continuous use thanks to longer battery life. The Crane-M is compatible with 26500 batteries and can be operated for up to 12 hours.

Crane M

Gutes P/L

Ich habe die Crane M vor ca. 1 Jahr von B&H Photo importiert für 550.-- (niemand in CH hatte es) und bin recht zufrieden.

Ich benutze die Crane M zusammen mit meiner Sony a6000. Mit einer nicht voll ausgezoomten 16-70mm Objektiv von Zeiss geht es ganz okay, danach ist man am Limit. Aber man sollte ja eigentlich nicht ein Zoom Objektiv nutzen. Mit Primes geht es ohne Probleme.

Die Modis sind gut und man hat sich schnell daran gewöhnt. die Crane 2 hat ja noch ein Display - mMn braucht es sowas nicht.
