Zhiyun releases two new gimbals for unlimited creativity



Whether you are shooting with a smartphone or a professional camera a gimbal might be the most important tool besides the camera. Zhiyun is one of the leading manufacturers of gimbals for content creators and filmmakers and is today announcing an update on two of their most popular gimbals – the Zhiyun Crane M3S and Weebill 3S.


Zhiyun Crane M3S

The new Zhiyun M3S is the perfect tool for vlogging, travel and social media.

The 705g ultra-compact, portable powerhouse comes with a higher load-bearing capacity than its predecessor and can take more mainstream full-frame cameras and lens combos but can also be used with mobile phones and action cameras.

The ergonomics are improved and users can take pictures effortlessly thanks to the new Bluetooth trigger that allows wireless control of zoom and recording with a single touch. A new customised two-in-one quick release lets the user disassemble the camera from the gimbal for changing the battery, without having to rebalance the camera.


The new M3S boasts a tiny, yet powerful built-in bi-colour fill light no bigger than a fingernail.

Thanks to a newly developed technology that Zhiyun calls Lumen Amplifier, the light can provide up to 1000 lux and has an adjustable color temperature of 2700-5500K and is perfect if, for example, you want to lighten shadows in bright sunlight.

The new gimbal comes with PD fast charging meaning that a full charge takes just two hours and a maximum battery life is up to 7.5 hours.


Zhiyun Weebill 3S

The Weebill gimbal is one of Zhiyun's most popular gimbals for professional content creators. On the new gimbal we find several exciting new features such as a new tenth generation of algorithms that boosts the gimbals performance. Zhiyun has further developed the ergonomics of the previous model and the new SLING 2.5 design have a softer grip that makes it easier to hold the gimbal for a longer time without getting tired. A new extendable sling grip can be adjusted to a two-handed grip and allows for left and right tilt adjustments to the direction of the gimbal handle as well as the grip center of gravity, making low-angle and sling mode shooting easier.

The wrist rest has a new adjustable knob so the user can adjust the angle of their preference.


On the new gimbal, Zhiyun have chosen to focus more on vertical shooting and the new gimbal comes with a new innovative quick-release that makes it easy for the user to change between portrait and landscape mode without having to rebalance the gimbal.

Just like the new M3S, Weebill 3S comes with Lumen Amplifier technology and the fill light delivers a powerful 1000 Lux light and has an adjustable color temperature of 2600-5500K with a CRI of 90+


On the front of the gimbal there are two customizable buttons that can be set and customized according to the user's wishes. The gimbal can also communicate with the most common camera models via Bluetooth so you don't need a cable.

The gimbal has 12 hours of battery life and reaches full power in only two hours of PD charging.

The new Weebill 3S is fully compatible with the Zhiyun Transmount ecosystem of accessories for monitoring and wireless control.
