Crane 3 LAB – The perfectly controllable stabiliser
The Crane 3 LAB features an advanced control stick with a bright OLED display that shows vital information about the camera and the Crane 3 LAB itself, such as shutter speed, ISO setting, aperture, as well as battery and connection status. It also features the most common settings buttons, a quick-select control dial, and gimbal joystick, all within a finger’s reach, making switching settings on-the-go a breeze. The hands-on control method works no matter at what angle the Crane 3 LAB is used. Popular features from other Zhiyun products are also introduced, such as an easy Pan-Follow/Lock switch and the popular PhoneGo mode, which turns the motors into overdrive to film high-performance sports and action scenes.

Advanced wireless operation
As a part of Zhiyun’s premium LAB features, the Crane 3 LAB is equipped with a wireless image transmission system that allows smartphones and tablets to function as a Full HD monitor, reducing the need for an external monitor. Beyond use as just an external monitor, the ViaTouch Control System allows for remote operation of the Crane 3 LAB through any Android or iOS device running the ZY Play app. Controlling the Crane 3 LAB can be done through a touch-interface or through motion-control. This allows for perfect framing of shots, even when the operator is not near the gimbal. Using ViaTouch allows for advanced features like following focusing and object-tracking through a connected device, to allow a new level of footage to be shot with the Crane 3 LAB.

Synchronous Zoom/Focus
The Crane 3 LAB supports synchronous zoom and focus on almost all cameras with the TransMount Servo Zoom/Follow Controller Max & TransMount Servo Zoom/Follow Controller Lite. With the zoom trigger and the focus wheel, filmmakers have instant control of the zoom and focus which gives an instantaneous response of the actions performed by the filmmaker. This is a huge benefit over last-generation products that can only realise either one of zoom or focus function at a time. The TransMount Servo Controllers are available separately or through the Creator & Master Package.

Rethinking the DSLR camera stabiliser
The Crane3 LAB was developed based on the feedback of many users of Zhiyun Crane products. For easier setup and maximum portability, each axis/motor has a locking-tab in bright red sturdy aluminium, to lock each axis in place for balance or during transportation. Additionally, each axis is longer and together with the stronger, aviation-grade engines, allowing it to operate with almost all best-selling DSLR cameras and lenses on the market. Power is provided by universally available 18650 batteries that can be easily swapped or charged through a USB port, for up to a promised 7,5 hours of runtime.
