From intense chasing shoot to studio filming, different types of shooting environment require both high capacity and flexibility of shooting equipment. Bearing filmmakers in mind, ZHIYUN felt the Crane series can be even better to adapt to strict and unpredictable filming environment. Now introducing the new CRANE 3S, the legendary gimbal built on a heritage of innovation with magnificent motors and brand new modular design, which aims for wider application and intuitive control.
Reengineered for More Ambitious Camera Setup:
It is not simply an upgrade but reconstruction. CRANE 3S is constructed with brand new SUPER motors which allow for 6.5kg payload for a wide range of camera setup.
Extendable Roll Axis, Greater Flexibility:
Wider compatibility is the goal but flexibility is provided. For larger cinema camera combos, users can attach an extension module onto roll axis for more space, while for smaller DSLR combos, the extension module can be detached for greater portability.
Modular Design, Versatile Shooting:
On CRANE 3S, the handle is detachable. You can mount SmartSling Handle featuring an intuitive control panel and OLED screen, for direct camera & gimbal parameter adjustment.
Cross-Compatibility, You Can Image:
To complete challenging shooting tasks, CRANE 3S offers a versatile solution thanks to its cross-compatibility. The handle mods are easily separated and both provide multiple thread holes of different sizes to mount accessories.
Zero Swinging, Hero Security:
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 camera is 100% safe on the gimbal during traveling or storage.
Continuous Uptime Supported by PowerPlus:
Besides battery insertion, CRANE 3S offers a DC-IN port which supports up to 25.2V input for direct charging. The new exciting TransMount PowerPlus Battery Pack can house 6*18650 batteries (sold separately), giving more strength to your gimbal to adapt to constant intense motions, and serving as a compact yet fast-charging power bank for your devices.
Phenomenal Speed, Seriously Smooth:
To facilitate powerful features in various shooting environment, CRANE 3S is driven by a new algorithm system which enables phenomenal responsive speed and smoothness. In fast action shoot, CRANE 3S is able to resist high winds and G-forces without compromise.
Properly Calculated 55°: Broader Vision:
The properly 55° tilted roll axis is designed for unblocked view and allows enough space to mount large cinema camera combos.
Improved Zoom & Focus System:
To meet the needs of cinematography, larger lens supports are added into the zoom & focus system. The focus wheel is equipped with a white board for marking a focus range. Zooming can be realized synchronously through SmartSling Handle.
