"As Vlogging is trending, more and more content creators including influencers and bloggers are seeking for a tool that is easy to use and portable, meanwhile, it can bring their video quality to the next level. That's why we created CRANE-M2, a 3-axis gimbal that has never been so compact and diverse before," said Wu Caner, the chief designer of this product.


CRANE-M2 is compact gimbal weighing just 500g, compatible to multiple devices like point-and-shoot, lightweight mirrorless cameras, smartphones and action cams. CRANE-M2 is beginner-friendly with a quick-release system that allows anyone to quickly mount and dismount the camera with a single press of lock button. The unique scale mark and memory lock facilitate balance adjustment, saving much trouble of readjustment every time. The WiFi-and-Bluetooth control module eliminates the hassle of cables. CRANE-M2 offers six modes including Pan Following, Locking, Full Following, POV, Vortex and Go mode which definitely help create dynamic camera movement and express what in your mind.  


As Tik Tok and Instagram become more popular, Zhiyun newly launched a vertical mounting plate for users to mount their camera vertically on the CRANE-M2 so that users can produce a video in vertical frame without additional trimming. More about the vertical plate for CRANE-M2:
