Earlier this week, Zhiyun, the world’s leading manufacturer of gimbals for cameras and smartphones, announced the Crane 2S Pro Pro Package.
Being one of the most popular large camera gimbals in the market, Crane 2S is packed with all the features needed to produce the video of your dreams. The series provides industry-leading load and size capacity, filming flexibility, and reliable performance, even in the most challenging environments.

Crane 2S offers a ton of improvements compared to its previous generation. Its modular design is its greatest asset, which allows you to use supported accessories and even mount monitor and smartphones for easy access and control.
