The Zhiyun Crane M2 Gimbal is designed for compact cameras, smartphones, and action cams up to 1.58 lb. (An optional mounting accessory is required for attaching action cams.) The compact design allows you to maneuver your camera more freely and for longer periods. It's also easier to pack up with you and carry, whether nearby or when traveling. This aside, the CRANE-M2 provides the standard features that have made gimbals such a revolutionary addition to the world of camera supports.
The CRANE-M2 offers 360° pan, 310° tilt, and 324° roll rotation across six modes of operation, including POV and Vortex modes. It runs for approximately seven hours on a built-in battery that's rechargeable using an included micro-USB cable. Over built-in Wi-Fi, the gimbal is able to sync up with a Wi-Fi-enabled camera that supports remote zoom, shutter, and video start/stop control. These functions can be operated from a zoom rocker and other controls on the gimbal. Furthermore, over built-in Bluetooth, the camera syncs up with a free-download ZY Play mobile app for iOS and Android for additional capabilities. The app provides remote control over many functions of the gimbal and also has filmmaking features such as time-lapse, panorama, and slow-motion capture.

I'm just starting out in the photography and videography world. I have an a6000 with the Kit lens. I do travel and food stuff so having large complicated gear is a hassle when Im backpacking around alot. I was trying to decide between the Crane M and the Crane M2. I am very glad I decided to go with the Crane M2 and here is why!Pros of crane M2:Brand new product so plenty of support and better software!This thing is light and small! Great for holding long periods of time and easily stored for any traveling!
