Keep in mind that this is the Crane V2, not the Crane 2.

Confusing, yes.

This is the upgrade to the initial Crane, with a few improvements over the initial model, but essentially the initial model.

The newest model is the "Crane 2". (not the Crane V2). The "Crane 2" has completely different hardware and double the payload. It's also quite a bit more expensive.

So this isn't bad, but it's not the latest either. And some have had troubles with their Cranes of all models. Not a few have been been DOA.

So while this is a good price, camel-camel-camel shows it's been this cheap from Amazon sellers too. And the Amazon warranty, even for third party sellers is probably better than whatever zapals.com will do.

This one handles up to 1.8kg so unless you have a super large lens on a full frame, this should suffice, no?

$520 is the lowest I see for 3rd party on the camel.

Yeah, It should. I probably should not have wrote mirror-less, but in my mind I'm looking in to getting a Panasonic mirrorless for video which is probably why I typed that Smilie

I have the GH5, the video 4k quality is good. I'm thinking of buying a stabilizer too but after testing one out, I'm not sure if my arm can handle holding it for long with one arm.

Unlike many Amazon products, the Crane V2 has multiple, separate listings. Probably because each listing claims compatibility with different cameras, but it's all the same Crane.

If you search the camel for Zhiyun Crane V2 you'll see them all.

Some have occasionally been priced lower than $300, and with black friday so close, this is the time of year to expect the lowest ever pricing.
