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.

I don't know how it will hold up over time, but it works great. Great value.

It's very cool gimbal but what I spent the cost for just didn't reach my expectations. I used it for a wedding I did this past weekend and it just was a pain in my ass too control and balance and change, plus the camera plate wa getting stuck which ended up not being able to balance it, eventually just stopped using it

I've owned Zhiyun gimbals before and they really do perform. After balancing the Crane I had no problems getting this to work perfectly if you step gingerly. My setup is a Canon T5i and a Canon 10-20MM wide angel lens. This is within the weight limit called out in the review. THe only issue i have with the gimbal is the batteries they provide die instantly. I make sure to charge them constantly, however, the gimbal dies a few moments into use. I usually wouldn't complain about this, but replacement from Zhiyun are $50. I would expect a piece of equipment like this to function instantly without a costly and battery replacement.

I am extremely impressed with this unit! Relatively easy to set up and begin using. I was practicing with it in less than ten minutes with no prior experience. It is very smooth and quiet. Allows me to get those difficult shots like never before. Using it with a Panasonic GH4 with no issues. I think you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Excellent device, great build... Definitely setup correctly before powering it up. Search youtube some great setup vids out there.

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 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!

Excellent gimbal. However, the package content was different than the one i ordered. There were supposed to be 2 sets of batteries, instead i received the one with remote and the cleaning kit. Those products were squezed into the protective case and apperantly damaged the case. Wasn't in mint condition.

ONE of the MOST important thing to a videographer besides the content that he or she is shooting....I hit the ground running with this thing, straight out the box its easy to put together just put the batteries into bottom half, screw it onto the top half screw in/balance the camera, then turn it on and your ready to go.... packaging was perfect, worked as described, came on time, very very very happy..................... SIDE NOTE....you will need an update but thats easy, its for the slight slanted horizon that happens but a 5-10min update will fix it and it comes with the wire to do the update

Phone Remote control is awesome. If you DSLR is wifi live view then it is icing on the cake.

Just received the item and loving the this product so far. I had a little trouble balancing but managed it. Came in earlier than expected and excited to put it in use.

I bought mine direct from Zhiyun USA with free shipping no tax for $585. I had a Ronin-M in 2015 but sold it because it was not convenient. I bought a iKan Beholder DS1 in 2016 which was much more compact. At the time I bought the DS1, the Crane came out but being an unknown product with a Paris trip coming up, I decided not to get the Crane. In retrospect, I should have because the Crane is better than the DS1 or the Ronin-M.

Easy to balance; high quality material; good App; smooth movements. The Ronin-M had a very robotic movement which I didn't like. The DS1 had a more of a manual steadicam gimbal movement which made the video more authentic but it had a tendency to drift on the horizon. Adjustment was not easy on the DS1 due to the software Simple BGC.

Once I put the Crane through a day of filming, I'll report more.

NOTE: the kit no longer comes with 4 batteries like what the reviewers stated. Just two 26550 batteries now. Weight limit is now 1.8KG.

SO SO SO SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE BEHOLDER EC-1.
I'm very happy with this product. It levels out my camera perfectly every time, it's smooth and easy to use. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the app doesn't work great, toggling between modes is a little confusing (compared to the beholder), there isn't a way to check battery life, there isn't a send to home position function like the beholder had which was convenient, and it just seems to lack explanation on basic questions I feel users would have and I think that's because it is an Asian product and obviously some of that detailed information gets lost in translation.

Sold my Glidecam for this and it was the best decision I ever made. Use this with a camera with IBIS and you've got yourself some amazingly smooth shots. Worth every penny.

The Crane is a wonderful product but I imagine an upgrade is in store to function smoothly with the newer 2017+ cameras. Though the GH4 seems to balance correctly, my GH5 works (sort-of), with great limitations. You will not get full rotation on the main axis due to the new body size and weight adjustment needed for the GH5. Two of the arms will collide. The Crane works 75% but the place where the two axises collide is quite limiting. The other issue is that after you remove the camera you have to unadjusted your balance settings just to get it back in the case, which means, every time you use the Crane with a GH5 you need to rebalance it all over again. Google The Ultimate Gimbal Review And Comparison and you will see what I mean.

My new Fujufilm X100F also fails to balance on this rig no matter what adjustment you make and it is well within the weight that is advertised for the Crane. I'm now reading that other cameras do not function as well as they should. I think it only fair that a free update fix for these balance issues to customers who purchased the Crane in 2017.

The day after I received the Crane I left to photograph in Iceland until June and will miss the Amazon window to return the item.
