Zhiyun Crane 4 Overview

The Zhiyun CRANE 4 takes the familiar form factor and lightweight experience of previous Zhiyun gimbals while expanding the onboard features for native portrait shooting, Bluetooth shutter control, and an extended grip to accommodate cameras with full-frame lenses. This combo kit version outfits you with a sling grip and wrist rest for an improved low-angle shooting experience. Control the 360° pan, 207° tilt, and 70° roll rotation using the onboard controls. Balance indicator lights on each motor aid in achieving precise calibration. Dual-layer quick release plates facilitate both landscape and portrait-oriented shooting with ease. Easily control your settings with the 1.22″ color touchscreen and Bluetooth-powered wireless shutter. The CRANE 4 also features a built-in fill light with a 3200 lux output and adjustable color temperature.
Lightweight Design, Extended Arm Length
  • With the CRANE 4 redesign comes an extended arm length and stronger motors which expand the gimbal and lens compatibility to DSLR, mirrorless, and compact cinema cameras with full-frame lenses attached.
  • The gimbal weighs just 3.6 lb but has a 13.2 lb load capacity capable of supporting cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro, Nikon Z8, Panasonic LUMIX S1H, and Sony a7S III, all with full-frame lenses attached.
  • For a full list of compatible cameras, please see the most current compatibility information on the Zhiyun website page or see the camera compatibility list in PDF format.

 

Sling Grip, Upgraded Wrist Rest
  • 1/4″-20 mounting threads with rosettes on either side of the gimbal base allow you to attach the included slid grip. Rotate and adjust to hold the CRANE 4 in sling mode or two-handed mode.
  • Attach the wrist rest to the unused rosette and angle it into the most ergonomic position to reduce wrist strain.
Dual-Layer Quick Release, Lens Support
Mount your camera of choice on the camera quick release plate or upper quick release plate for efficient integration and balancing with the dual-layer plates on the CRANE 4. The lower quick release plate slides in the landscape orientation baseplate and offers a mounting point for the included lens support when using heftier full-frame lenses. The upper quick release slides easily into the portrait orientation baseplate.
Bluetooth 5.0 Shutter Control
While the included camera control cables offer the option for wired shutter control, avoid complicated cable runs by using the embedded Bluetooth 5.0 shutter control. Wirelessly control your compatible camera’s shutter and toggle recording via the onboard controls and touchscreen. For a full list of Bluetooth-compatible cameras, please see the most current compatibility information on the Zhiyun website page or see the camera compatibility list in PDF format.
Powerful, Bright Fill Light
  • A built-in 10W fill light easily lights subjects thanks to its 3200 lux brightness. An included fill light diffuser can soften the light’s effect as needed.
  • The light has a CRI of 95+ for accurate and natural color reproduction.
  • Adjust the color temperature of the light from 2700 to 5500K with the onboard control wheel.
1.22″ Color Touchscreen, Onboard Controls
  • Toggle between gimbal modes like Pan Follow Mode, Lock Mode, POV Mode, Follow Mode, Go Mode, Vortex Mode, and Portrait Mode.

ZY Play App
Control your gimbal remotely from your iOS or Android device using the ZY Play App. Features of the app include virtual joystick control, photo and video control, motion sensor control, timelapse, panorama, and firmware upgrade. The gimbal’s embedded Bluetooth technology facilitates the app connection.
Follow Focus and Video Transmitter Integration
Attach additional pro-level tools to the CRANE 4 to communicate to others on set. Two USB-C ports at the front of the camera mounting area can connect follow focus motors for remote camera control. Another USB-C port at the back of the camera accepts the included camera control cables or connects to the separately available TransMount Image Transmission system. The transmitter unit can mount onto the bottom of your gimbal’s baseplate to communicate with its corresponding viewing monitor.
All-Day Production
Four built-in 18650 batteries with a 2600mAh total capacity offer a runtime of 12 hours to shoot all-day events. The USB-C charging port supports PD fast charging to get you back up and running in just under two hours. You can charge the gimbal while it’s in use to keep capturing the action.
