First try, didn't work. Added some flash and photo accessories for $12 and the zhiyun crane 2. Total didn't have the 25% off. Did I do something wrong ?

If you add qualifying bundle items, the price of the Gimbal is $561.75.

Big discount, but discounts this large are common with Zhiyun gimbals. They really don't cost much to make, there's a huge margin in them. Wouldn't be surprised to see it at this price or lower in the next two weeks at Amazon.

Version 2 of the Crane 1 could easily drop to the $300 range by Black Friday. The Camel says it's already fallen lower than that in the past. That's what I'm waiting for. Unless you need the extra weight this allows or have one of the Sony cameras the Crane 2's follow focus supports, the Crane 1 v2 is probably a better value.

That is the v2, not Crane 2.

EDIT: I'm wrong.

The pik is the crane 2, look at the follow focus wheel. Not sure if you were directing that at me or not. I have both, just returned my crane 2 for this better price.

What is the camel? Yea the v2 is good, I have a canon 80d but am trying to get the sony a6500 mixed paired with a sigma 18-35mm which is heave as hell lol. So I would need the crane 2. I would prefer the v2 if it could hold up the a6500 and the sigma lens, but from what i've seen online most ppl say it can't. I have seen a few ppl say it works but in certain angles it can start to wiggle so I rather get the crane 2, the 18-35 sigma is my favorite lens. I am into videography and thought this would hold up better than the v2 and is cheaper than a ronin.

Camel-camel-camel dot com. (remove the dashes, all one big word). The Amazon price history site (The URL is blocked here. This site's owners prevaricate that it's because camel isn't a "safe" site, it's really because it takes their referral bonuses. Which is fine, but wish they were honest about the reasons.)

Yes, for a Sony camera that supports the Crane 2's follow focus, it's a better value. Also for heavy cameras with heavy glass like yours. No question, the Crane 2 is the right pick for you.

But for Panasonic G7, GX85, G85, and GH5 users with most M 4/3 lenses, the older V2 (when it's on sale) is a better value.

Oh ok, yea man I want a gh5 but the low light I see on the a6500 is amazing. Hopefully it doesn't blow up on me with the heat lol. Thanks for the site recommendation.

Why the thumbs down? This is a brand new product just released a month ago.
