Film like a professional with the new Zhiyun CRANE-M2S gimbal

new Zhiyun CRANE-M2S gimbal

Transcontinenta BV, Zhiyun-Tech distributor,  introduces the new Zhiyun CRANE-M2S gimbal. This small, powerful, lightweight and affordable gimbal is suitable for all kinds of cameras and is full of useful features. The CRANE-M2S can carry a wide range of cameras, like system and compact cameras, but also smartphones and action-cams.

Weighing 549 grams, the CRANE M2S is as manageable as a smartphone gimbal, but offers more than enough power to balance, for example, a Sony A7C with a Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8! The lightweight housing has more powerful motors and axes compared to the previous CRANE-M2 model. This makes it a must-have for active filmmakers who want speed and ease of use!

The CRANE-M2S was designed with ergonomics and ease of use in mind. Not only does it fit perfectly in your hand, but it also has a number of features that increase its ease of use. For example, it has a 0.66" display which shows the status and settings of the camera and gimbal, allowing filmmakers to monitor their settings at a glance while filming. The CRANE-M2S has various recording modes, including Pan Follow, Follow, Lock, POV, Vortex, Go and more!

Affordable alternative to the CRANE M3

The Zhiyun CRANE-M2S offers an affordable alternative to the CRANE-M3, as a lighter and more manoeuvrable gimbal, for a smaller camera+lens combination. It also has more functions than the standard CRANE-M2 offers. The CRANE-M2S has a significantly longer battery life than the CRANE-M2, a faster charge time, the ability to charge the gimbal and camera during use and a built-in LED light and ZHIYUN's Quick Release 4.0 technology.
