The Zhiyun Crane 3 LAB is a 3-axis stabiliser gimbal that offers a payload of 4.5kg, remote control, wireless image transmission, and a synchronous zoom/focus. Featuring a unique and versatile L-shaped designed the gimbal provides users with much easier handling, elevated stability as well as increased comfort. The gimbal’s design facilitates an ergonomic and natural handling in a traditional vertical manner, or underslung for low-angle shots.

Zhiyun Crane 3 LAB Key Features:

  • Offers advanced wireless operation
  • Capable of synchronous zoom/focus
  • OLED display
  • Extremely portable with an easy and comfortable setup
  • 18650 batteries support 7.5 hours of operation

Expanded Zhiyun Crane 3 LAB Key Features:

Beautifully Controllable Stabiliser

The gimbal comes with an advanced control stick and a bright OLED display that exhibits critical camera and gimbal information such as the shutter speed, ISO, and aperture in addition to the battery and connection status. Common setting buttons, a quick-select control dial, and a gimbal joystick are all incorporated and made readily available within the user’s grasp. The user is free to switch settings on the fly hassle-free. It is also worth noting that the hands-on control method can be utilised whatever the angle of the gimbal is being used at any given moment. In addition to the plethora of new features the Zhiyun Crane 3 LAB also includes its sister product’s beloved features such as the easy Pan-Follow/Lock switch and the PhoneGo mode that turns the motors into overdrive to aid the capture of high-performance sports and action scenes.

Improved Wireless Operation

The wireless image transition system allows both smartphones and tablets to act as full HD monitors eliminating the need for an external monitor and therefore saving money. The ViaTouch Control System facilitates remote operation through any Android or iOS device that runs the ZY Play app. The control can be achieved either via the touch-interface or the motion-control, allowing for the flawless framing of shots, even if the operator is away from the gimbal. The ViaTouch function also gives the user the access to features such as follow focusing and object-tracking through a connected device.

Synchronous Zoom/Focus

The synchronous zoom and focus is supported on most cameras with the TransMount Servo Zoom/Follow Controller Max and TransMount Servo Zoom/Follow Controller Lite. Gain instant control of the zoom and focus with the zoom trigger and the focus wheel. It delivers an instantaneous response of the actions performed by the operator. This is a humongous improvement on previous gimbals that could only realize either one of zoom or focus function at one time. The RransMount Servo controllers are also available to purchase separately or though the Creator and Master Package.

Listening to the Feedback

The Crane3 LAB has been developed to meet the feedback received from the users of the gimbal’s predecessor. In order to improve the setup and portability, each axis/motor features a locking-tab in bright, red, sturdy aluminium. It locks each axis in place for balance or during transportation. In addition to this, each axis is longer and in combination with the stronger, aviation-grade engines is compatible with most best-selling DSLR cameras and lenses. The gimbal is powered by universally available 18650 batteries. These can be very easily switched or charged through a USB port, for up to 7.5 hours of operation.

    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
