ZHIYUN CRANE-M2S: Must-have gimbal for vlogging and travel
ZHIYUN’s latest all-around vlogging gimbal, the CRANE-M2S is positioned between the Crane-M2 and the Crane-M3. The M2S has a great balance between camera compatibility, features, and price. High-end smartphones like the iPhone 13 Pro Max comes with built-in image stabilization (OIS) that promises close to tripod-level stability. So why do you still need a gimbal when you have a ‘cinema camera’ in your pocket? Let’s find out from this review!
In-body stabilization (EIS or OIS) is useful for subtle movements like a handshake from breathing or your heart rate, but for walking shots it doesn’t do the same job as a gimbal can. These days, even hobbyist content creators are using multiple types of cameras. I think the ideal gear duo is a smartphone for on-the-go vlogging and a mirrorless camera for high-quality video shoots and stills. The CRANE-M2 S can handle both and even action cameras if needed.
