ZHIYUN CRANE-M 3S gimbal for smooth vlogging and travel videos

CRANE-M3S gimbal

The newly announced ZHIYUN CRANE-M 3S is the successor to the CRANE M3 gimbal intended for Vlogging, travel videos, and live streaming users. It weighs 705 grams and features a higher load-bearing capacity so that mainstream mirrorless full-frame cameras and lens combos can be used.

When used with compatible cameras, the CRANE M3S gimbal features Bluetooth shutter functionality that enables wireless control of zoom and recording without the need for a cable connection. Thanks to the upgraded arm, it can accommodate full-frame mirrorless cameras, action cameras, and smartphones. Its built-in 1150mAh battery provides about 7 hours of working time and can be charged via a PD USB Type-C port in just two hours.

Just like its predecessor, the M3S boasts a small built-in bi-color fill light no bigger than a fingernail. Powered by ZHIYUN’s own Lumen Amplifier technology, the modular light enables step-less/temperature adjustment and is claimed to emit up to 1,000 lux brightness. It is Kelvin color temperature adjustable between 2,700K-5,500K.

The 1.22-inch touchscreen features an all-new intuitive UI that offers easy adjustment of functions.
