abunda_amazon_reviews I photograph professionally and video as a hobbyist, particularly for documenting travels and family moments like chasing after a toddler hiking through a rugged park. I had tried using my photography experience to film through the coordination of steady hands, a breathing pattern, and taking careful steps, and that worked to some extent. Next, I tried using a $100 gimbal to help with image stabilization, and that was a big improvement, but I kept running into issues like having to recalibrate from time to time, or movement not having been as smooth as I'd have liked. So, I asked my professional videography friends for their recommendation for use with smartphones, GoPros, and my Sony Alpha A6500. They said with an overwhelming majority: DJI Ronin or the slighly less expensive, but just as capable, Zhiyun Crane. Both were over $300, and I went with the Crane-M2, the smaller, lighter successor to the popular original. I loved it with the Sony A6500 and GoPro. The Crane M-2, however, cannot accommodate the Canon 5D series with my 24-70mm f/2.8L lens. The Weebill S looked like the right gimbal for that camera, and I bought it while on sale for $395. INCLUDED ITEMS - Gimbal - Quick-release plate (same one as the Weebill Lab) with markings --- Bottom: Manfrotto QR plate. Top: Arca-Swiss - Mini Tripod - Two 18650 batteries (2600 mAh each) and a two-battery charger - Camera backing base (to elevate the camera so the lens won't hit the QR plate) - Zhiyun ZW-Micro-002, ZW-Mini-002, LN-MBUC-B01, ZW-Multi-002 camera control cables, one of which is specifically for Sony - USB-C cable for Gimbal firmware upgrade - Quickstart guide - Compartmentalized storage, but you will still need to buy a case to hold it PROS - Surprisingly VERY small, compact, lightweight design, making it far easier to bring with me on trips - Stabilization worked VERY well. Bounces and FAST movements worked without a glitch. It works SO much better than the $100 gimbal I had previously purchased! - Material feels, looks, and is packaged far more professionally than the $100 gimbal - Lock switch for each of the 3 axes to prevent them from swinging all over, a complaint I have with the cheaper gimbal. This allows me to carry the item without having to first use velcro to lock the arms in place - Works with my Canon 5D Mark IV with 24-70mm f/2.8L lens and Sony Alpha A6500 - The occasional jerkiness I had experienced with the $100 gimbal is not an issue with this Zhiyun - Quiet stabilization: you could literally hear the motors operating on the $100 gimbal, but on the Zhiyun, it's fairly quiet - VERY responsive and FAST motor torque - Motor torque is customizable (including tilt, roll, and pan) via the Menu --- Auto-tune function to set the correct power for the mounted camera/lens - Camera control options via the included control cable and is compatible with Canon, Sony, Nikon, and many more brands - Depending on the mode the gimbal is in, a double-press on the trigger re-centers the camera, a triple turns it around for a selfie (for narrating yourself in a documentary or vlogging) - LV button enters/exits the camera's Live Preview mode --- Double-press it to lock all front side buttons. Triple-press to lock the joystick - Lasted about 12.5 hours. Took about 5 hours to charge - OLED display shows relevant information (gimbal mode, battery level, connection status) - Multi-directional control wheel and joystick make it easier (and with the OLED, quicker) to change modes and access different functions - 360 degree pan. Can also tilt and roll - 6 stabilization modes. More on that in the TIPS/NOTES section below - Batteries are replaceable - iOS/Android app: "ZY Play" allows for additional control and guidance (must pair gimbal via Bluetooth to use) --- VERY HANDY: Smartphone can use its built-in accelerometer to remotely control the gimbal! --- Subject motion tracking via the smartphone (SmartFollow 2.0 feature), but requires the optional TransMount Image Transmission Module - Full manual can be downloaded from the website, helping to save some trees - 6-step Calibration (best when done on a clean, level surface) --- Both the Zhiyun mobile app and Windows software guide you with the steps. Do them enough times, and you can manually follow the steps without any app CONS - Very pricey for a point-and-shoot Joe - Calibration cannot be saved into memory for various cameras, and so if you switch a camera, you should/will need to recalibrate each time --- Keep in mind that whenever you re-mount the same camera, it is unlikely to be placed in the exact same spot and configuration, and recalibration is recommended regardless - No one-button push quick release like their Crane-M2 to mount/unmount the camera. As a wedding photographer, quick releases are always appreciated because every second you delay is a potentially missed moment - Cannot charge the batteries through the grip via the USB-C cable - For a beginner, it can be a BIG challenge learning how to properly balance the gimbal, especially for multiple camera and lens combinations - Quick Start Guide is VERY minimal. If you're new to gimbals, search for some how-to videos on YouTube on the Weebill S - Storage case is included, but to put the gimbal away, you'll have to change everything back to the factory configuration TIPS/NOTES The $100 gimbal I have only has 2 modes: following the gimbal handle's movement and staying locked in position. This Zhiyun has six. 3 modes that are standard with the more higher end gimbals. The joystick can be used to manually move the camera around. - PF (Pan-Follow) where the camera pans as you turn the gimbal left and right. This allows you to smoothly pan the camera for weddings where you reveal the ring from behind the wall - F (Follow) where the camera points in the same direction as the gimbal handle is pointed to. This allows you to keep the camera pointed at the subject as if you were chasing that person - L (Locked) where the camera is always pointed in one direction. This allows you to follow a subject regardless of how your body is turned, such as filming snowboarders as you keep moving on your own 3 additional modes: - POV (Point-of-View) where the camera is able to freely move into any direction to follow a subject. This allows you to film as if you were a bird flying behind someone - Vortex allows you to film from above as if you were at the top of a vortex/hurricane. This is great for capturing the environment/surrounding areas in relation to the subject - Go allows you to follow someone in a very fast pan and tilt movement. Think of an action movie where you have to keep moving back and forth between different individuals who are running, ducking, jumping, etc. Be sure to update to the latest firmware to fix any issues that existed with older versions of the gimbal software. This can be accomplished via the included USB-C cable. Overall, for a hobbyist, this gimbal is just too powerful and expensive. However, for professional work, this Zhiyun impressed me a LOT. It is leaps and bounds better than the $100 gimbal I have, and the 6 different modes make it very versatile to shoot footage in a variety of ways. Furthermore, the small size/light weight makes it very easy to bring along on trips. It performed just as well as their smaller Crane-M2 model, and the Zhiyun mobile app extends the gimbal's capabilities an extra notch.;;Reviewed in the United States on January 4, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Professional-grade movements and features in a portable package. Mobile app enables extra features;;M. Y. 'Photographer | Tech Pro | Outdoor Enthusiast';;;***NOTE: BE SURE TO UPDATE TO THE LATEST FIRMWARE BEFORE USING FOR SHOOTS!*** °Solid build, modern connections, and easy to setup. I am using this with an A7R III + 24-70GM and so far it balances very well for its form factor. °Packaging is good, no fancy case for it but the foam case is fair enough for light travel. If you can find a case that can fit the foam housing then it would be perfect for it. The quick release Arca Swiss mount is proprietary so if you have a standard Area Swiss plate it does not mount to the slide in rail due to two indentions sticking out from the back and there is no other way to attach a camera to the system nicely. °The interface is pretty simple to use, definitely refer to the full user manual vs the brief one thats included. There's a lot of detail that is lost. °Balancing the gimbal is such breeze to do. With this one being my first personal I can get it up and going in less than a minute thanks to the axis locks. There are three different motor settings for the gimbal so you can adjust from High(heavy cameras), Medium(mirrorless/aps-c/small interchangeable setup), Low(smartphone, GoPro, and the likes). °The gimbal uses 2x18650 batteries are Zhiyun labeled "FST 18650 -2600mAh 3.6V 9.36Wh". So far they have lasted roughly a day of shooting but I would recommend purchasing another set or two for longer shoots. I love how the 18650 battery charger is using a USB Type-C connector vs the previous models that used a micro usb so that's one less to cable to worry about. Charger is barely larger than the batteries and the build quality is great. LED goes from red to green when finished charging. °If you're using a Sony camera make sure you don't get the micro usb cable(s) mixed up, one is a micro to micro and the other is a micro to "MULTI" which is for Sony's remote input system for their cameras. The connector might take some more effort to fully insert. °Pros: small collapsible form factor, easy to pack, good battery life(even if not perfectly balanced), locking axis switches. °Cons: I wish the side rotary dial worked with Sony cameras but that's not Zhiyun's fault, standard arca Swiss plates don't work with the mounting rail.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 6, 2019;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Solid and thoughtful setup package, used with A7R3 + 24-70 GM;;My Lord;;;I recently purchased the Weebill S and as a user of many gimbals from various companies I was a little hesitant to believe all of the hype circulating about this particular one. However, after using it on a recent shoot in which I had to traveled to Wisconsin for (I live in FL) I am blown away. The gimbal is easily broken down and can fit in the smallest of camera bags so transport was a breeze. The setup process is insanely easy. It supports lighter setups and heavier setups with minimal effort for balancing. Best of all Zhiyun creates amazing accessories such as the transmount quick release plates which are a must, the wireless transmitter that I’m still testing but it changes the entire experience, a follow focus, and much more. Basically, if you’re looking for the ultimate gimbal for DSLR and mirrorless cameras this is the best on the market and I don’t see anything competing with it, unless Zhiyun releases a Storm Trooper white version!;;Reviewed in the United States on November 28, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;This Gimbal Changes Everything;;Jonathan C.

If you're new to gimbals, search for some how-to videos on YouTube on the Weebill S - Storage case is included, but to put the gimbal away, you'll have to change everything back to the factory configuration TIPS/NOTES The $100 gimbal I have only has 2 modes: following the gimbal handle's movement and staying locked in position. This Zhiyun has six. 3 modes that are standard with the more higher end gimbals. The joystick can be used to manually move the camera around. - PF (Pan-Follow) where the camera pans as you turn the gimbal left and right. This allows you to smoothly pan the camera for weddings where you reveal the ring from behind the wall - F (Follow) where the camera points in the same direction as the gimbal handle is pointed to. This allows you to keep the camera pointed at the subject as if you were chasing that person - L (Locked) where the camera is always pointed in one direction. This allows you to follow a subject regardless of how your body is turned, such as filming snowboarders as you keep moving on your own 3 additional modes: - POV (Point-of-View) where the camera is able to freely move into any direction to follow a subject. This allows you to film as if you were a bird flying behind someone - Vortex allows you to film from above as if you were at the top of a vortex/hurricane. This is great for capturing the environment/surrounding areas in relation to the subject - Go allows you to follow someone in a very fast pan and tilt movement. Think of an action movie where you have to keep moving back and forth between different individuals who are running, ducking, jumping, etc. Be sure to update to the latest firmware to fix any issues that existed with older versions of the gimbal software. This can be accomplished via the included USB-C cable. Overall, for a hobbyist, this gimbal is just too powerful and expensive. However, for professional work, this Zhiyun impressed me a LOT. It is leaps and bounds better than the $100 gimbal I have, and the 6 different modes make it very versatile to shoot footage in a variety of ways. Furthermore, the small size/light weight makes it very easy to bring along on trips. It performed just as well as their smaller Crane-M2 model, and the Zhiyun mobile app extends the gimbal's capabilities an extra notch.

Solid and thoughtful setup package, used with A7R3 + 24-70 GM
***NOTE: BE SURE TO UPDATE TO THE LATEST FIRMWARE BEFORE USING FOR SHOOTS!*** °Solid build, modern connections, and easy to setup. I am using this with an A7R III + 24-70GM and so far it balances very well for its form factor. °Packaging is good, no fancy case for it but the foam case is fair enough for light travel. If you can find a case that can fit the foam housing then it would be perfect for it. The quick release Arca Swiss mount is proprietary so if you have a standard Area Swiss plate it does not mount to the slide in rail due to two indentions sticking out from the back and there is no other way to attach a camera to the system nicely. °The interface is pretty simple to use, definitely refer to the full user manual vs the brief one thats included. There's a lot of detail that is lost. °Balancing the gimbal is such breeze to do. With this one being my first personal I can get it up and going in less than a minute thanks to the axis locks. There are three different motor settings for the gimbal so you can adjust from High(heavy cameras), Medium(mirrorless/aps-c/small interchangeable setup), Low(smartphone, GoPro, and the likes). °The gimbal uses 2x18650 batteries are Zhiyun labeled "FST 18650 -2600mAh 3.6V 9.36Wh". So far they have lasted roughly a day of shooting but I would recommend purchasing another set or two for longer shoots. I love how the 18650 battery charger is using a USB Type-C connector vs the previous models that used a micro usb so that's one less to cable to worry about. Charger is barely larger than the batteries and the build quality is great. LED goes from red to green when finished charging. °If you're using a Sony camera make sure you don't get the micro usb cable(s) mixed up, one is a micro to micro and the other is a micro to "MULTI" which is for Sony's remote input system for their cameras. The connector might take some more effort to fully insert. °Pros: small collapsible form factor, easy to pack, good battery life(even if not perfectly balanced), locking axis switches. °Cons: I wish the side rotary dial worked with Sony cameras but that's not Zhiyun's fault, standard arca Swiss plates don't work with the mounting rail.

This Gimbal Changes Everything
I recently purchased the Weebill S and as a user of many gimbals from various companies I was a little hesitant to believe all of the hype circulating about this particular one. However, after using it on a recent shoot in which I had to traveled to Wisconsin for (I live in FL) I am blown away. The gimbal is easily broken down and can fit in the smallest of camera bags so transport was a breeze. The setup process is insanely easy. It supports lighter setups and heavier setups with minimal effort for balancing. Best of all Zhiyun creates amazing accessories such as the transmount quick release plates which are a must, the wireless transmitter that I’m still testing but it changes the entire experience, a follow focus, and much more. Basically, if you’re looking for the ultimate gimbal for DSLR and mirrorless cameras this is the best on the market and I don’t see anything competing with it, unless Zhiyun releases a Storm Trooper white version!

Professional-grade movements and features in a portable package. Mobile app enables extra features
I photograph professionally and video as a hobbyist, particularly for documenting travels and family moments like chasing after a toddler hiking through a rugged park. I had tried using my photography experience to film through the coordination of steady hands, a breathing pattern, and taking careful steps, and that worked to some extent. Next, I tried using a $100 gimbal to help with image stabilization, and that was a big improvement, but I kept running into issues like having to recalibrate from time to time, or movement not having been as smooth as I'd have liked. So, I asked my professional videography friends for their recommendation for use with smartphones, GoPros, and my Sony Alpha A6500. They said with an overwhelming majority: DJI Ronin or the slighly less expensive, but just as capable, Zhiyun Crane. Both were over $300, and I went with the Crane-M2, the smaller, lighter successor to the popular original. I loved it with the Sony A6500 and GoPro. The Crane M-2, however, cannot accommodate the Canon 5D series with my 24-70mm f/2.8L lens. The Weebill S looked like the right gimbal for that camera, and I bought it while on sale for $395. INCLUDED ITEMS - Gimbal - Quick-release plate (same one as the Weebill Lab) with markings --- Bottom: Manfrotto QR plate. Top: Arca-Swiss - Mini Tripod - Two 18650 batteries (2600 mAh each) and a two-battery charger - Camera backing base (to elevate the camera so the lens won't hit the QR plate) - Zhiyun ZW-Micro-002, ZW-Mini-002, LN-MBUC-B01, ZW-Multi-002 camera control cables, one of which is specifically for Sony - USB-C cable for Gimbal firmware upgrade - Quickstart guide - Compartmentalized storage, but you will still need to buy a case to hold it PROS - Surprisingly VERY small, compact, lightweight design, making it far easier to bring with me on trips - Stabilization worked VERY well. Bounces and FAST movements worked without a glitch. It works SO much better than the $100 gimbal I had previously purchased! - Material feels, looks, and is packaged far more professionally than the $100 gimbal - Lock switch for each of the 3 axes to prevent them from swinging all over, a complaint I have with the cheaper gimbal. This allows me to carry the item without having to first use velcro to lock the arms in place - Works with my Canon 5D Mark IV with 24-70mm f/2.8L lens and Sony Alpha A6500 - The occasional jerkiness I had experienced with the $100 gimbal is not an issue with this Zhiyun - Quiet stabilization: you could literally hear the motors operating on the $100 gimbal, but on the Zhiyun, it's fairly quiet - VERY responsive and FAST motor torque - Motor torque is customizable (including tilt, roll, and pan) via the Menu --- Auto-tune function to set the correct power for the mounted camera/lens - Camera control options via the included control cable and is compatible with Canon, Sony, Nikon, and many more brands - Depending on the mode the gimbal is in, a double-press on the trigger re-centers the camera, a triple turns it around for a selfie (for narrating yourself in a documentary or vlogging) - LV button enters/exits the camera's Live Preview mode --- Double-press it to lock all front side buttons. Triple-press to lock the joystick - Lasted about 12.5 hours. Took about 5 hours to charge - OLED display shows relevant information (gimbal mode, battery level, connection status) - Multi-directional control wheel and joystick make it easier (and with the OLED, quicker) to change modes and access different functions - 360 degree pan. Can also tilt and roll - 6 stabilization modes. More on that in the TIPS/NOTES section below - Batteries are replaceable - iOS/Android app: "ZY Play" allows for additional control and guidance (must pair gimbal via Bluetooth to use) --- VERY HANDY: Smartphone can use its built-in accelerometer to remotely control the gimbal! --- Subject motion tracking via the smartphone (SmartFollow 2.0 feature), but requires the optional TransMount Image Transmission Module - Full manual can be downloaded from the website, helping to save some trees - 6-step Calibration (best when done on a clean, level surface) --- Both the Zhiyun mobile app and Windows software guide you with the steps. Do them enough times, and you can manually follow the steps without any app CONS - Very pricey for a point-and-shoot Joe - Calibration cannot be saved into memory for various cameras, and so if you switch a camera, you should/will need to recalibrate each time --- Keep in mind that whenever you re-mount the same camera, it is unlikely to be placed in the exact same spot and configuration, and recalibration is recommended regardless - No one-button push quick release like their Crane-M2 to mount/unmount the camera.
