Zhiyun Releases New CRANE 3 LAB at Inter BEE 2018

Hottest stabilizer of 2018 unveiled at Japan’s greatest professional video exhibition

Shenzhen, China, November 1st, 2018, Zhiyun, the world’s leading manufacturer gimbals and stabilizers, is pleased to announce it will reveal the CRANE 3 LAB during Inter BEE 2018 in Chiba city, Japan. The CRANE 3 LAB is the pinnacle of stabilizer technology for DSLR cameras and has been feverously anticipated by professional users as well as media covering camera technology.



The CRANE 3 LAB is not only the best stabilizer currently on the market. It is also filled with features not found on other stabilizers for years to come. Ergonomically, the CRANE 3 LAB features a two-handed grip for maximum stability in shooting and filming, while compatibility with Zhiyun’s new TransMount systems makes attaching accessories and fitting the CRANE 3 LAB to a supportive belt a breeze. The CRANE 3 LAB supports a huge range of DSLR cameras and accessories.


As part of the LAB series it reduces cable clutter by integrating a Wireless Image Transmission system so an external tablet/smartphone can act as a monitor to view live footage. The ViaTouch Control System also allows that same device to operate the CRANE 3 LAB remotely. This makes it possible to set-up and frame great shots when the operator is not near the gimbal, or it allows a second person to direct photography while the operator focuses on basic operation of the CRANE 3 LAB.
