The CRANE 3 LAB from Zhiyun-Tech is a motorized gimbal that has a slight difference from other gimbals with an addition of a handle at the top. With an included mini tripod attached on the bottom and a fixed ergonomic handle , the CRANE 3 LAB can be used two-handed for optimal stability. Moreover, the handle enables you to seamlessly switch to underslung mode, whether with one or two hands, and achieve creative shots such as 360° roll shots as you move closer toward a subject. In addition to this innovative design, the CRANE 3 LAB also packs other advanced features, such as wireless video transmission, and provides the ability to stabilize up to 4.5 kg.
The gimbal supports two optional servos at the same time for focus and zoom control directly from the handwheel on the side. All the other controls needed are at the top of the handle along with an OLED status screen. Additionally, the included ZY PLAY iOS/Android app (free download) provides many of the same control functions as well as special features such as panorama, focus time-lapse, motion time-lapse, long exposure time-lapse, camera settings, and more.
The CRANE 3 LAB can also connect to Wi-Fi, hence, wireless transmission of your video reordings to an iOS/Android phone or tablet is possible from your camera in real time and 1080p resolution. However, this feature is compatible with select cameras; please see the Zhiyun-Tech website for a full camera compatibility list.
A TransMount Phone Holder (not included), allows you to mount your phone on the side of the gimbal for monitoring your shot via the ZY PLAY app. Other accessories include a camera belt and specialized monopods that work together with the belt. Another major feature of the gimbal is an axis latch lock system consisting of a separate latch lock on each axis. This feature allows you to lock the individual axes to remember your balance positions when powering the gimbal off. This way you won't have to rebalance each time.
