Through the simple-designed control panel on CRANE-M handle, users not only can pan, tilt, and roll the connected camera, but also make zooming, and photo/video shooting controls.

Full 12-hour Around the Clock

Featuring ZHIYUN’s unique 32-bit high-speed MCU parallel control technology, the work efficiency of control motors on all three axes has been greatly improved, thus reducing power consumption during operations. CRANE-M comes standard with 2 pieces of 26500 Li-Ion batteries supporting an extensive working hour of up to 12 hours that it backs up for any challenge you may come upon.
