ZHIYUN Weebill-S, a more powerful and compatible gimbal with real-time syncing

Weebill-S is a new 3-axis gimbal designed by Zhiyun that easily handles mainstream mirrorless and DSLR camera & lens combos, to stabilize the footage and enrich the camera movement.

Featuring an upgraded algorithm and stronger motors, Weebill-S is even able to hold Canon 5D4+EF 24-70mm F2.8. Weebill-S pushes the limit of filmmaking even further with a brand new ultra-low latency HD image transmission module and the intelligent ViaTouch 2.0 system. You can live stream the footage to three devices including smartphone, tablet and professional monitor, meanwhile, you can control the gimbal and camera parameters remotely with the ViaTouch system.
