How to Use Zhiyun Crane V2 – 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for DSLR and Mirrorless Camera

Views:9369|Rating:4.81|View Time:9:52Minutes|Likes:50|Dislikes:2
Shooting video with this beast makes the footage super smooth. I have used it with my Sony HDR-XR520, Nikon D3S, GoPro, and smartphones and and here is my thought on it:

– Payload:
The gimbal has a payload of 0.8 to 3.9 lb (0.35 to 1.8 Kg). I was able to use it with my Sony HDR-XR520 which weigh about 654g with lens. With this camera I am able to do pretty much everything without an issue even when the display of it was open. Same with my phone and GoPro (more on these two later under accessories – quick release plate). My full frame Nikon D3S which is about 1.42Kg for body and the battery. The stabilizer could handle this camera when I attach the smaller portrait lens that I have since it weighs about 280g but not with my telephoto lens as that one will be too heavy with it weigh being 810g as this lens with my camera weigh more than 1.8g but not with the smaller lens. Thus, before buying just make sure your camera, its battery, and its lens all weigh bellow 3.9lbs or 1.8Kg.

– Modes:
1) [Pan] Follow[ing] Mode: (Single click the mode button): In this mode the gimbal pans left and right smoothly when you turn your hand towards left and right. In this mode the tilt and roll axes are locked. But with the joystick you can manually tilt the camera up and down as well. This is the default mode when you turn on the gimbal.
2) Lock[ing] Mode (Single click the mode button): In this mode the camera stays still in the same position as it is when the gimbal is turned on. All the axis are locked (from automatically moving) but with the joystick you can tilt up and down and pan left and right.
3) Following [or Full] Mode (Double click the mode button): In this mode the camera pans and tilts following the movement of the gimbal. The joystick also allows you to tilt the camera towards left and right sides.

The Quick Release Plate: Allows me to also balance the camera. Due to its weigh of 138g anything can be mounted on the stabilizer that is super light such as a cellphone, GoPro, etc. as it helps in the balancing of the stabilizer when extra weight is needed for optimal stabilization.

– APPs:
(1) Zhiyun Assistant: This is my favorite app. In this app you can see the gimbal battery status and the status and degree of each of the 3 axis as well as control the gimbal, switch between gimbal modes, calibrate the gimbal, and access to all the settings that you can access via the windows software. The camera feature of the app has HDR feature, and bunch of settings such as object tracking, photo/video resolution, GPS tagging, stabilization, screen highlight, audio control, ISO, white balance, and exposure. (*) You can purchase a phone mount to flash shoe mount (or Hot Shoe to 1/4 threat screw for anything that accept the screw) and fix the smartphone on top of the camera and point the phone to the same direction as the camera (e.g. facing forward) and as the phone camera is goes to object tracking it can track the object and move the camera in the same direction as the object. This way you can indirectly use the object tracking feature of this gimbal for your camera when it’s needed. But keep in mind that the added height of the phone and the camera might prevent the gimbal from some movements if the top of the phone touches the the pan axix arm. (**) The remote control feature allows you to control the mode/axis on the gimbal via your smarphone which is great if the gimbal is attached to a longer monopod and accessing the joystick is not easy (you can find one of those clip-on phone mounts for monopods and attach the phone on the monopod where you can easily touch it).
(2) ZY Play: This app is good for basic functionalities of picture and video taking on smartphone (if you have a phone mount to 1/4 screw)
(3) Zhiyun Camera: In this app you can use the Face Tracking feature which follows faces on the camera app (see above under Zhiyun assistant (*) for indirectly use it fpr your camera).

– Object (or Face) Tracking:
The gimbal has the support object tracking via it’s app which uses smartphone camera so essentially it can be set on the tripod and by selecting (drawing a square on) an object the gimbal can flow the object (ASSUMING: you mount the smart phone on your camera flash shoe [see above under Zhiyun Assistant (*)]). The face tracking feature follows any face so in the same manner it follows faces without selecting any of the faces.

5 Creative camera jib (mini crane) tricks |

Views:58498|Rating:4.90|View Time:4:38Minutes|Likes:997|Dislikes:20
Camera jibs (or mini-cranes) are awesome tools for cinematic shots. In this video we share 5 creative tips and tricks to take your jib techniques to the next level.

We got the iFootage M1-III crane and decided to make a tricks and tips video about it. When using your creativity, we found out there’s a lot more to do than just moving up, down, left and right.

In the first trick we let the camera point to the opposite side, where the mini crane operator stands. But instead, we’ll place the actor/actress there. We now get a nice POV shot from an different actor standing on the other side.

The next trick is rather simpel, but gives great results. We’ll let the actress come in from the side. The actress is looking to an area the camera can’t see yet. But as she starts moving again, we follow her movement and reveal the area she was looking at.

In the third trick we position the camera above the actress who’s laying down on the ground. Now, we push down the jib from a long shot to a close up. This creates an effect where the actress could receive an idea from the heaven 🙂

The fourth trick closes in on the actress to create a dramatic isolated shot. Rather than making big movements with the jib, you want to make small but aggressive movements and keep your actress in a medium shot while she’s doing an action.

And in the last trick, our actress will find a camera laying on the ground. AS she pick it up, she puts the camera perfectly stable to make a selfie. This can only be done with a tilt head on the end of your jib. The magic happens when the viewer sees the camera go from handheld to fix.

10 creative camera slider tips with the Konova slider |

Views:371289|Rating:4.95|View Time:4:1Minutes|Likes:6835|Dislikes:76
– A camera slider can do much more than you think. Find out 10 amazing tricks with the Konova slider to bring your shots to a higher cinematic

I never leave my office without my Konova camera slider. It’s one of the most versatile tools to bring cinematic movement to your shots. After using it for more than 3 years, I still find new creative techniques.
The camera slider works best in combination with a photo tripod head since it has a 3-axis rotation. This means, we can position the slider slanting and recreate the movements of a jib or crane.

I found these techniques during the many video productions I’ve done with the Konova slider. I do not bind myself to the usual shots, I always seek for something new. Sometimes the shot is a total disaster, but very often I get surprised by the amazing camera movement my slider can do. A main problem I see with many photographers is that they always want to see a good composition or camera frame. But when it comes down to sliding from point A to point B, your point A doesn’t always have to be so perfect. It can start from total darkness or objects that are out of focus. What matters is how your point B will look like. The slider movement within will make the magic happen to have your final shot shine like a masterpiece.
