A wedding filmmaker’s review of the Zhiyun Crane 2

by Matt WhoisMatt Johnson

In my 2016 review of the Ronin-M, I concluded that I still preferred using a Glidecam HD4000 for stabilizing my camera when filming weddings. Here we are two years later and the gimbal landscape has changed dramatically, with single-handed gimbals growing both in popularity and weight capacity, leading many wedding filmmakers (myself included) to wonder if it is time to buy an electronic gimbal.

Whether you are a beginning filmmaker that has never owned a gimbal before, or you already own a Glidecam or Ronin-M and have been considering buying a single-handed gimbal like the Crane 2, this video should help you make a decision about whether it will be a good investment for you.
