Zhiyun debuts pair of gimbals

Posted on Jul 18, 2023

Described as ultra portable and aimed at filmmakers and content creators, the Crane-M 3S is a successor to the previous Red Dot Design Award-winning Crane M3

Those who shoot video alongside stills are directed to two new gimbals, in the Zhiyun Crane-M 3S and the Weebill 3S.

Weighing in at just 705g, it has a higher load capacity than its predecessor and can be used with the latest full-frame cameras, as well as mobile phones. With a monochrome finish, this gimbal has dimensions of 284.2×74.5×163.5mm, featuring a tiny yet powerful bi-colour fill light no larger than a fingernail, which can emit up to 1000 lux of brightness while boasting a colour-temperature range of 2700-5500K. A 1.22-inch touchscreen features an all-new interactive user interface. Prices commence at £299.99.

Meanwhile, the Weebill 3S weighs 1.05kg and measures 305x210x72.5mm. Here, users can switch between portrait and landscape modes via a quick-release module, eliminating the need to re-balance the gimbal. Improvements include a revamped slim grip for added comfort, an extended battery life of up to 11.5 hours, a 1000-lux fill light, the ability to offer shutter control over mainstream camera models via Bluetooth, a 0.96-inch display for adjustments on the go – plus a control wheel for adjusting parameters. Pricing starts from £319.99.
