So, why only two stars? Because although they claim it works with the Sony RX series, there is no way to change back and forth from inverted mode.
I use the RX100 to record my family and kids and I switch hold it up and inverted mode quite a bit. But with the RX100 in place, the only way to invert it is to take the camera off.
I wish they made the outside L bracket 1cm larger. Then this gimbal would have been perfect.
By the way, this gimbal is capable of holding a7rii with 28mm lens. But once again, it's impossible to go to inverted mode without taking the camera out.
UPDATE!!!: After making a poor review for this product and already starting the return process, I found a youtube video with a workaround.
By purchasing a l bracket, it shifts the tripod mount closer to the lens, which in turn allows the gimbal to rotate fully.
I wish I can give 5 stars, but I'm giving 4 stars for now because of the extra bracket I had to purchase to use with the RX100.
The new plate makes all the difference. The Crane-M balances more easily, has plenty of clearance for switching between high and low modes, and works great.
The first Crane-M I ordered looked like it had possibly already been used, and had a nasty buzz in the motor(s) at some points of rotation. The replacement unit is fine, thankfully.
I read somewhere (can't seem to find it now) that someone had trouble with the Sony control cable ceasing to function after it worked initially. I just had that happen to me. A bit of digging and I discovered that the unit had forgotten its settings. The only way to activate the Sony control cable is in the Zhiyun app, and sometimes the setting doesn't seem to 'stick'. But if you just repeat the setting process, it usually takes.
This product is $400. For ANY amateur videographer, this thing is a steal. Yes, you can hold it upright. But you can also use handles to undersling it like a $5k+ system.
I shot with my Crane-M all last weekend. Not only was it fun and easy to use, it's features let you change on the fly (switching fro fixed to follow modes, something that would take 2 operators on a professional system).
Plus, the batteries lasted ALL WEEKEND. Not just all weekend, but for the two weeks prior where I occasionally tested my new rig. I used this thing for at least 3 hours a day (on a 3 day vacation), and even after a few weeks of no charging and moderate testing, the batts read 40%. It's crazy.
The app isn't perfect, but it's wayyy better than any other free app out there. Lets you fine tune AND control. Mōvi controllers cost like $3k.
Again, like I said. The profession rigs are built so you can use them on movies and professional shoots. Follow focus, monitors, wireless video feeds, wireless audio patches, etc.
If you don't need those things.. hell, even if you do. This thing is only 400$!
Very happy. Will update if any issues pop up.

Now I shoot professional looking clips at 4K with a Sony RX100V on this Zhiyun Crane M Gimbal, I use a run and gun style, so once your camera is attached to the gimbal and balanced, you can walk around your destination, when you see something raise the gimbal turn it on turn the camera on and within seconds your filming and the results look like your using a tripod.
It does take a little practice with this gimbal to hold it and not have the gimbal drift horizontally, the other great shots are the flying type shots where you walk with the gimbal.
This is a small gimbal designed for small cameras like the Sony RX100 and it does a great job, the batteries hardly ever need charging, I have used it everyday on a 21 day trip and didn't have to recharge the gimbal batteries, so I never did pick up a spare set, however the camera batteries on the Sony RX100V I need about six to eight in a day!
When traveling I don't take the Zhiyun case, in fact I never use it I have a free promo shoulder back pack I had and put it in their complete with camera attached as the gimbal and camera does fold flat.
Lastly and most importantly, balance the gimbal with the camera attached and the camera switched on, the Sony RX100 when switched on extends changing the centre of balance, always balance the gimbal with the camera switched on.
Don't nearly balance your camera be exact be so precise that the camera when held on the gimbal doesn't move off balance when moving the gimbal when the gimbal is switched off. Nearly balancing your gimbal will shorten it's life, the gimbal will balance a nearly balanced camera but the motors are working harder and will burn out long before they should.
Bottom line I like the product a lot and it does give tripod like shots, as well as flying and slider type effects.
Balancing proved to be a little tricky but with a little patience you will not regret the time spent on it.
Wow, just wow... the Crane M...mind blown.
une très bonne stabilisation aussi bien sur les mouvements très rapide que très lent, avec trois modes de stabilisation en fonction des plans image choisie.
le Joystic est très bien placé au niveau du pouce ce qui vous permet d'avoir votre autre main en totale liberté.
L'autonomie des batteries rechargeables est redoutable plus de six heures de tournage il y avait encore de la marge, de plus ce stabilisateur est esthétique pas de cables qui dépasse, et surtout des axes moteurs pouvant tourner à 360° et à la l'infini, j'adore
Seul petit regret, la mallette de transport un peu petite ne permet pas de garder vos derniers réglages d'équilibrage de votre caméra préférée.
Achtung, sync-kabel nicht dabei. Muss man extra bestellen. Sonst top!
