Being that this gimbal is $359 does it include all of the items like the one's pricing for $399?

  • Not sure why you asked in that way . It comes with the basic needs . The batteries , charger , sync cable , no bundle items just the parts for it to work

Does it need an adapter to mount the Samsung 7 phone? If yes, does the unit come with the adapter? I don't see it anywhere as an accessory.

  • Hi, these units do not come with smartphone adapters. You'll need a smartphone holder that accommodates standard tripod mounting threads. Or consider the Zhiyun Smooth Q and Smooth 3 models that are specifically designed for use with smartphones.

What type of quick release plate is used? (the plate that screws into camera). is it arca swiss compatible?

  • No plate. Camera sits directly on the platform and a screw is inserted underneath to secure the camera. You could probably add a plate, like the Manfrotto 323.... I might try that!

I really need to find out if this thing works with the sony a7sii and the FE 28-70mm Lens because i'm having a tone of issues with this device?

  • The 24-70 it's a heavy lens but if you set the crane with the app you could find the right balance, according to the weight of the lens the engine works in 3 differenti ways...let me know

    Absolutely amazing. I was impressed with the battery life. I took this on a trip to SouthEast Asia to shoot video and was able to make it through the full day, sometimes 2 days without recharging. I just powered off when not using. Video turned out so smooth. Very compact but heavy when holding for long periods of time. I found it very affordable considering it's capabilities. There were so minor glitches but easily resolved within minutes while I was out shooting. HIGHLY recommended, especially for Videographers.

    This is not my first product that I've purchased at Tomtop. So far it has been hit or miss, but this one is totally a hit. The only small issue I have occasionally is that my camera is a bit on the heavy side and it occasionally will lose stability for a brief moment when I try to achieve certain camera moves. Regardless, totally worth the price. As far as trying to imagine what camera would work perfectly with this device, I'd suggest you check out the Sony a6000 or similar cameras (in terms of weight).

    Took this gimble all the way to Hong Kong through the city and up the mountains and it never let me down! Its small when compared to other gimbals like a ronin but just as if not smoother than larger gimbals. It is very simple to use and learn. The BATTERY LIFE IS AMAZING, I would shoot all day and charge every night, sometimes having it operate for 8 hours a day and it has yet to die on me.

    I love this gimbal system. It's exactly what I'd expect for the price. I travelled with this from America to Bali in a bookbag and never felt like I was putting the Crane in danger. It's a great piece of equipment to use for stable shots and vlogging!

    Incredible gimbal unit for the money,.. for any money. No tweaking software, just balance and go. Right Side Motor so you can flip out your camera screen. Camera focus control, start/stop, etc. on bluetooth app with additional cable! (bolt to my 12ft jib and go.) Camera control cables are just starting to ship via Zhiyun resellers websites. Using Panasonic GH4, 12-35mm 2.8 and heavy fast primes like 25mm 1.4. Tripod stays on the cart for run & gun interviews now. I can't vouch for big dlsr's, but small to big mirrorless you're rock'n! Long handle thought to be a drawback, but after shooting inverted, it's a godsend with a table-top tripod attached, perfect for my 6'3" crouch for low-angle follow shots.

    I've used the Zhiyun crane to film two weddings, and so far I think it was a good investment. I'm still learning the new workflow, but attaching a monopod to the bottom of the crane (it has the screw mount) has really helped since I primarily shot with a Manfrotto monopod before. Battery life is amazing and lasts a full day. It is surprisingly sturdy. Even if your camera isn't perfectly balanced, it won't struggle to keep it stable. I've also accidentally put the gimbal down for a minute when it was still turned on (thought I turned it off) - and there were no damage to the motors. Of course there's also the typical accidental dings you get when filming a reception in tight spaces. People knock into it, etc. The point is - it's very well built :) Fine tuning is possible through the app. The gimbal connects via bluetooth and allows for you to adjust the pitch and yaw speed, etc. This is definitely MUCH more inconspicuous than the Ronin, and that is perfect for me. I like to be a fly on the wall when I shoot and this thing is basically the same as the Manfrotto monopod. There is definitely less control than using a monopod alone. Stabilization is not perfect. Of course you get that bounce effect at times when you walk. But I've also noticed micro-jitters when trying to apply too many movements at once. For example, tilting my arm up while using the joystick to pan. When moving around with the gimbal there is a certain "look" to the video which I feel like gives it away that you're using a gimbal. Not that it's a bad thing, but unless you've had a lot of practice and are super stead, it won't replace the look of a slider or small jib. Another thing about the joystick - it's really difficult to set it perfectly. It either moves the camera too slowly, or too quickly. I wish there was a dial to quickly change the pan speed instead of using the app. There is a mode which (I think Mode 2) which basically just moves the cameras based on how you're moving the gimbal. I recommend this one for anyone trying to keep their workflow similar to a monopod. You can also adjust the speed of how quickly the gimbal reacts. It can be pretty much real time, but can also have a fluid drag behind your movements. Messing with the Joystick during the ceremony gave me too much anxiety. You just lose a lot of control. Anyway, I hope this helps.

    It's a really good product. One thing, what I can't resolve the firmware update. If I run the android app, and I would like a motion capture, the app show me that needs 1.6 firmware or above...To update the firmware not a complicated task, but I don't find the 1.6 firmware, so I can't use the motion capture. I am talking about this: got a dpd tracking number, but finally the UPS delivered the product, so on the DPD site I couldn't track the shipping.The product has very good quality, it has fluid motions. Easy to use! I absolutely recommend it!

    Sadly I returned the Zhiyun because I could not get it to work right. I read the instructions and the Zhiyun had a mind of its own. Most likely user error. When I did get the device to balance right, the video footage was pretty cool.

    I just received the Zhiyun Crane and have been using it for a couple of days straight. First the pros: It's sturdy and everything else the other reviews have said are true. You will get amazing video from this gimbal and won't be disappointed. I won't go into the all the other pros as they have been addressed already but will post some video soon to show what I've been able to get out of this amazing gimbal. Now for the cons (with the caveat that I may have gotten a defective one). After balancing the gimbal and playing around with the device, I noticed one thing. 1. When the Crane is being rotated from right to left or left to right, the gimbal jerks vs. a smooth transition. This doesn't happen when I rotate it 360 from front to back. Thought this may be a balancing issue but I've balanced this thing countless on all 3 axis and the issue is still there. If I don't get a response I'll send this one back and get another one to see if it's just a QC issue. But I do want to stress, this is a terrific gimbal and is really solidly built.
