The CRANE-M2 S 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabiliser from Zhiyun-Tech is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, with greater power to support compact cameras, phones, and action cameras weighing up to 1kg. The M2 S retains all of the M2's amazing features while adding even more capability, such as a larger payload, longer runtime, PD rapid charging, a smaller handgrip, elegant two-tone design, Bluetooth 5 connectivity, a redesigned quick release camera plate, and a built-in LED light.

The Zhiyun-Tech CRANE-M2 S gimbal has six modes of operation, including POV and Vortex, and enables 360° pan, 320° tilt, and 320° roll rotation. It has a built-in battery that lasts about 10.5 hours and can be recharged with the provided cable. The gimbal can power a supported camera and manage its zoom, shutter, and video start/stop features via a cable connection. You may also manage the gimbal motions with the free ZY Play mobile app for iOS and Android, which gives you remote control over numerous gimbal operations and filmmaking tools like time-lapse, panorama, and slow-motion capture.

The Zhiyun-Tech CRANE-M2 S Stabiliser has a rapid release camera mounting system that allows you to secure or remove your camera with a single lock button press. Scale markers and memory locks assist you in balancing the camera and locking the balance position for the camera in operation. The built-in fill light is integrated opposite the camera plate and has a CRI of 90+, 1000-lumen brightness, five brightness settings, and four adjustable filters for changing the colour temperature.
