The Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 3 LAB takes gimbal design in a different direction with the addition of a handle on top. With an included mini tripod attached on the bottom and this fixed, ergonomic handle on top, the CRANE 3 LAB can be used two-handed for optimal stability. Moreover, the handle enables you to seamlessly switch to underslung mode, whether with one or two hands, and achieve creative shots such as 360° roll shots as you move closer toward a subject. In addition to this innovative design, the CRANE 3 LAB also packs other advanced features, such as wireless video transmission, and provides the ability to stabilize up to 10 lb loads.

The CRANE 3 LAB supports two optional servos at the same time for focus and zoom control directly from the handwheel on the side. At the same time, all the other controls you need are provided at your fingertips at the top of the handle along with an OLED status screen. Additionally, the included ZY PLAY iOS/Android app (free download) provides many of the same control functions as well as special features such as panorama, focus time-lapse, motion time-lapse, long exposure time-lapse, camera settings, and more.

Wireless transmission is achieved via a Wi-Fi connection to an iOS/Android phone or tablet. The CRANE 3 LAB wirelessly transmits your video recording from your camera to your mobile device in real time in 1080p resolution. This feature is compatible with select cameras; please see the Zhiyun-Tech website for a full camera compatibility list.

Zhiyun's LAB series was released along with an ecosystem of optional, dedicated TransMount accessories. One of these is the TransMount Phone Holder, which allows you to mount your phone on the side of the gimbal for monitoring your shot via the ZY PLAY app. Other accessories include a camera belt, specialized monopods that work together with the belt, and the TransMount Quick Setup Adapter, which lets you attach the included mini tripod by quick release functionality. This same adapter can also be used to attach monopods to the bottom of the gimbal for more stable jib-style shots. If you get two of these adapters, you can easily swap a monopod and a mini tripod on the spot as your needs require.

Another major feature of the gimbal is an axis latch lock system consisting of a separate latch lock on each axis. This feature allows you to lock the individual axes to remember your balance positions when powering the gimbal off. This way you won't have to rebalance each time.Wireless Full HD Image Transmission

The wireless image transmission technology applied to CRANE 3 LAB supports video streaming upto 1080P. For its great compatibility with smartphones and tablets of both Android and iOS systems, most digital devices around you can be readily used as a monitor.

Full Set of Accessories

TransMount Crane 3 Lab Handheld Tripod

The Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Crane 3-Lab Handheld Tripod is a replacement mini tripod that attaches to the bottom of the Crane 3-Lab gimbal. 

TransMount Phone Holder with Crown Gear

A phone holder for the Zhiyun-Tech Weebill Lab and Crane 3 Lab gimbals. An add-on accessory for the WEEBILL LAB and CRANE 3 LAB gimbals, the phone holder is perfect to attach a wide range of Smartphones including iPhones and Android devices. Its perfect as a monitor for live view preview and real time parameter setting and a control interface. It also aids viewing of shots taken at various angles, so is an essential accessory for many users.

As it attached to the handle, the phone holder does not add to the payload weight of the camera or video equipment.

Note: Unscrew the dual joint when paired with Weebill lab.

The Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Max Servo Zoom/Focus Controller can be used interchangeably for zoom and focus control on the Crane 3-Lab and WEEBILL LAB gimbals. It has a powerful-enough motor to control zoom, whereas the lighter-weight TransMount Lite is designed for focus control only.

The Crane 3-Lab supports up to two motors at the same time, and it's recommended to use the TransMount Max and TransMount Lite together if requiring both zoom and focus control on the Crane. The WEEBILL, however, supports only one motor, so the TransMount Max is recommended as the only solution because it can be used interchangeably for both functions.

Featuring a toolless design, the TransMount Max attaches on the gimbal using just the included thumbscrews. It can be controlled via the gimbal handwheel or the companion smartphone app. Secure it to the supplied support bracket and mounting rod using two thumbscrews, and attach this assembly to the bottom of the gimbal's baseplate with the third thumbscrew. Then connect the servo to the gimbal with the provided USB cable, and connect the camera to the gimbal with one of the camera control cables the gimbal comes with. The USB cable connection provides zero-latency signal transmission.

TransMount Multifunctional Camera Belt

When the belt is used with a monopod and gimbal such as the WEEBILL LAB, the additional point of balance allows for substantially more stable and comfortable jib-type shots and lets you control the gimbal's focus wheel more easily.

The belt also has military-grade strips along its length for hanging accessories such as lens bags and the TransMount Baseplate. 

For securing the monopod, the belt features a receptacle suspended on a hanging strap.

The receptacle has a removable quick release 1/4"-20 mounting platform that screws into the bottom of the monopod and then pops in and out of the receptacle by quick release functionality.

Two registration pins on the receptacle lock into a groove on the 1/4"-20 mounting platform to lock the two together.

The TransMount Quick Setup Kit

A quick release adapter for instantly attaching mini tripods and monopods to the Crane 3-Lab or WEEBILL LAB gimbal.

It consists of two parts—one screws onto the tripod/monopod and the other to the gimbal's tripod mount, and the two simply click into each other.

To detach them, you just need to pull back on a collar.

The adapter prevents having to screw and unscrew a tripod/monopod each time. Featuring a 1/4"-20 male/female design, the adapter can also be used independent of the gimbal for various accessories, such as monitors. 

Two units are recommended for the WEEBILL LAB because the WEEBILL offers two locations for attaching a mini tripod—one on top and one on the bottom.

With an adapter attached at each of the two locations, your mini tripod can easily be moved between one and the other to switch between standard and underslung modes. 
The Quick Setup Adapter features a robust aluminium construction.

TransMount Quick Release Baseplate 

Designed to let you easily move your camera between the gimbal and the TransMount Multifunctional Camera Belt or Gimbal Bag. On one side, the baseplate accepts the mounting plate of the WEEBILL LAB, Crane 3-Lab, or Crane 2, and on the other side it features a latch that lets you attach onto the straps provided on the outside of the belt and bag. In this way, when you pack away your gimbal or put it away temporarily, you can keep the camera handy without having to remove the gimbal mounting plate. The latch, which is made of metal, securely locks when you push it in and unlocks at the press of two pins on the sides.
