Smaller, more lightweight, the CRANE-M2 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer from Zhiyun-Techis 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.

An OLED display on the gimbal confirms the selected operation mode, battery level, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi status, and other functions. The CRANE-M2 features a quick release camera mounting system that lets you secure or remove your camera at the push of one lock button. Scale marks and memory locks help you balance the camera and lock the balance position for the camera used. A hand strap and mini tripod are also supplied with the gimbal. The mini tripod attaches on the bottom to function as a tripod or a stand, but it can also be used as an extension to provide you with even more control over the gimbal and camera, as you’ll have a better grip on the gimbal.

Your first step before renting any product from our portal is – to get verified. As renting is a complex business model and involves certain risks, we take additional measures to keep this platform safe for our loyal customers and us. Hence, we rent out the products to the verified customers only.

Getting verified is as simple as 1..2…3. Sign-up on the website first, you will see messages at different places of the website saying “Get verified to place orders”. Provided with a link to a form, fill out some basic questionnaire and submit proofs such as Adhaar Card or Driver’s license. Once the form is filled out, our team will check the details and will verify your account.

Please be informed, your account may not be verified if we do not find your details valid or for any reason. If your account is verified, you are now approved and allowed to place rental orders.

Allow us up to 8 hours to verify your details and update the status.

When reserving an item for a hard deadline (wedding, vacation, large production shoot), we recommend you give yourself a buffer by requesting the gear to arrive 1-3 days before the day you actually need it. Some packages may get delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, and we don’t want you to be stuck without the gear you need.

If the item reaches after the rental start date. You will only be charged from the day the item is delivered to you. 90% of the time, our customers received the items on time or before time. If the item reaches you before time, we do not charge any extra.

After placing your rental order. Make a note of few things for each other’s safety.

  • On the day of delivery, make yourself available to receive the item from our courier partner.
  • Check the contents and do not forget to save the serial number of the item you have received. Once the rental period ends, we verify the item serial number to avoid fake returns.
  • After the item is delivered, make sure to inspect the rental item, take as many pictures as you can for safety and do not forget to report us within 12 hours of delivery time if you notice any discrepancies within 12 Hours.
  • Make full use of the item – so plan it accordingly.

During the time of rentals, use the item fairly. Do not abuse the rental product and tamper the condition of it in any way. Help us in making this rental marketplace an essential source for everyone who cannot afford costly gear. We assume the item is treated as your own gear and protect it in all means. If for any reason, the item is damaged – be honest with us to avoid additional consequences. Please be aware, the renter takes responsibility of the item until it safely reaches back to us.

If you wish to extend your gear rental. You can do so by contact us and we’ll be glad to help. If there are no other customers waiting in line for your item, we will be happy to extend your rental.  Please note that in terms of billing, extensions are treated as if they were new orders- the rate will be less expensive for a 2 week rental than it would be for two 1-week rentals.

If your rental term is expiring, please make sure to clean the item and take pictures before sending the item back to us. Use the same package we shipped to you and attach the shipping label that was provided. Make sure the item is safely packed.

Please keep in mind that we cannot anticipate every situation, preferred style, or equipment combination due to the limitless possibilities. It is best to do your own research so that you can ensure that you make the right decision for your event.
