Zhiyun Crane 3S Cinecamera and DSLR Camera Stabalizer
The Zhiyun Crane 3S has been designed for film shooting that needs both high capacity and fleible shooting enviroments keeping in mind filmmakers requirements. This gimbal is built on Zhiyun's rich heritage of innovation around gimbal technology. This machine offers a magnificant motor and a brand new modular design which aims for wider film making applications and intuitive controls.
Super strong motors which allows upto 6.5kg payload
Demanding shoots may require the use of a variety of cameras and accessories in complicated shooting environments. CRANE 3S is reengineered with new SUPER motors which allow it to handle a 6.5kg payload for more ambitious camera setups–including Canon EOS 1DX, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras, and even Canon Cinema EOS, Sony FS and FX series, and Red Digital Cinema Cameras.
Extendable roll axis for greater flexibility
Wider compatibility is the goal but flexibility is provided. For larger cinema camera combos, users can attach an extension module onto the roll axis for more space, while for smaller DSLR combos, the extension module can be detached for greater portability.
Modular design for versatile shooting
The brand new detachable handle comes with two options: The TransMount EasySling Handle that enables versatile holding ways, and the SmartSling Handle which integrates a control panel with an OLED screen for intuitive control.
The CRANE 3S rethinks the structure of set up: the EasySling Handle and the SmartSling Handle. You can either mount EasySling handle to extend the grip for more comfort upright & underslung operation, or choose to mount SmartSling handle featuring an intuitive control panel and OLED screen, for direct camera & gimbal parameter adjustment, or combine them together.
Cross compatibility beyond your imagination
With multiple thread holes of different sizes provided in both stabilizer and handle, CRANE 3S has cross-compatibility for a wide range of accessories such as motorized dolly, jib, cable cam, Easyrig, satisfying various challenging shooting tasks.
Zero swing, Hero secutiry
CRANE 3S provides ultimate reliability that users can count on. The reinvented locking system can lock the three axes without noticeable swinging. The modular design is integrated with double locks to ensure the setup is 100% safe on the gimbal.
Supported by DC-IN for intense shooting
CRANE 3S offers a DC-IN port which supports up to 25.2V input for direct charging. To support long shoots with larger setups, Zhiyun introduces the TransMount PowerPlus Battery Pack, a compact yet fast-charging power bank for the gimbal and camera. This houses six 18650 batteries and independently provides 18 hours of runtime for the gimbal.
With three 18650-format batteries, CRANE 3S can run for up to 12 hours.
Control focus and zoom control for cinematographers
To meet the needs of cinematography, larger lens supports are added into the zoom & focus system. Focusing and Zooming can be realized synchronously through focus wheel and SmartSling Handle.
SyncMotion visualised control
For the first time in the industry, a visualized remote motion control system is introduced - ViaTouch 2.0. Filmmakers will be able to motion control the gimbal while monitor shots via smartphones or monitors.
Stay focused all the way
TransMount Image Transmission System supports zoom/focus control via phone app or remote controller. You can even customize sensitivity of zoom/focus control to your own needs for optimal experience.
Dependable and responsive system
Zhiyun’s CRANE 3S provides ultimate reliability that users can count on. The newly-designed locking system can lock all three axes without noticeable swinging. The modular design comes with double locks to ensure the setup is 100% safe. Larger lens support has been added to the zoom and focus system.
CRANE 3S is driven by a new algorithm which enables phenomenally responsive speed and smoothness. In fast action shooting, the CRANE 3S can resist high winds. The 55° tilted roll axis is designed for an unrestricted view and allows enough space to mount large cinema camera combos.
Image tranmission module to help with different filming enviornments
Zhiyun TransMount Image Transmission Module is compatible with CRANE 3S. With the transmitter, the video can be streamed to up to three monitoring devices including smartphones. The ViaTouch 2.0 system in the ZY Play app bridges the communication gap between stabilizer, camera and monitoring devices, allowing you to adjust camera and gimbal parameters remotely and intuitively. The ViaTouch 2.0 system also enables a visualized remote motion control for the gimbal.
