Reengineered for More Ambitious Camera Setup
It is not simply an upgrade but a reconstruction. CRANE 3S is constructed with brand new SUPER motors which allow for a 6.5kg/14.3lb payload for a wide range of camera models including Canon EOS 1DX, BMPCC 4k/6k, and even Canon Cinema EOS, Sony FS & FX series, and Red Digital Cinema Cameras.

Phenomenal Speed. Seriously Smooth
To facilitate powerful features in various shooting environments, CRANE 3S is driven by a new algorithm system that enables phenomenal responsive speed and smoothness. In fast action shooting, CRANE 3S is able to resist high winds and G-forces without compromise.

Extendable Roll Axis. Greater Flexibility
Wider compatibility is the goal but flexibility is provided. For larger cinema camera combos, users can attach an extension module onto the roll axis for more space, while for smaller DSLR combos, the extension module can be detached for greater portability.

Modular Design. Versatile Shooting
On CRANE 3S, the handle is detachable with two options provided: TransMount EasySling Handle and TransMount SmartSling Handle. You can either mount EasySling handles to extend the grip for more comfortable upright & underslung operation, or choose to mount SmartSling handles featuring an intuitive control panel and OLED screen, for direct camera & gimbal parameter adjustment, or combine them together!

Triple Control, Film at Your Will
ZHIYUN cares for the needs of all filmmakers. With ZHIYUN gimbals and TransMount Image Transmission System, there are three control options available for filmmakers work in film crew or work solo: control from the gimbal, from a smartphone, or from motion sensor controller.

Zero Swinging. Hero Security
CRANE 3S provides ultimate reliability that users can count on. The reinvented locking system can lock the three axes without noticeable swinging. The modular design is integrated with double locks to ensure the camera is 100% safe on the gimbal during traveling or storage.

Cross-Compatibility. You can Imagine
To complete challenging shooting tasks, CRANE 3S offers a versatile solution thanks to its cross-compatibility. The handle mods are easily separated and both provide multiple thread holes of different sizes to mount accessories. The modular design allows greater compatibility on CRANE 3S, like with motorized dolly, jib, cable cam, Easyrig, etc.

Continuous Uptime Supported by PowerPlus
Besides battery insertion, CRANE 3S offers a DC-IN port that supports up to 25.2V input for direct charging. The new exciting TransMount PowerPlus Battery Pack can house 6*18650 batteries, giving more strength to your gimbal to adapt to constant intense motions, and serving as a compact yet fast-charging power bank for your devices.

ViaTouch 2.0
ViaTouch 2.0 bridges the communication gap between your stabilizer, camera and monitoring devices via a dedicated phone app, allowing you to intuitively adjust various camera and gimbal parameters with perfect synergy.

Improved Zoom & Focus System
To meet the needs of cinematography, larger lens supports are added to the zoom & focus system. The focus wheel is equipped with a whiteboard for marking a focus range. Zooming can be realized synchronously through SmartSling Handle.

Stay Focused All the Way
TransMount Image Transmission System supports zoom/focus control via phone app or remote controller. You can even customize the sensitivity of zoom/focus control to your own needs for optimal experience.
