Crane m2 is a lot better for the price if you've got a compatable weight camera imo

Why so? I have a X100f, been thinking of either this Benro or the M2. Assuming the X100f is compatible sizewise with the M2? Thx

EDIT: yikes, maybe not, here's M2 compatibility sheet, why the heck Fuji nowhere in there: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&s...nliK3m6BQR

I've seen Fuji cameras work on it, I just think they don't have any software capabilities with it. Works fine as a normal gimbal if it meets the weight. I mostly would go with the M2 purely because of its insanely small size in comparison to a lot of other gimbals at this tier.

+ the fact you can find them open box for $159 on ebay.

Well, I ended up getting this for my Fuji x100f, just have a try. Read reviews of others using this Benro with it, not sold on getting the Crane m2 if Fuji isn't even listed on their compatibility sheet. Feel it's not a bad price to try a gimbal for the first time.

EDIT: nevermind. Canceled my order sadly. Honestly I don't see myself breaking out the big gimbal when I already have crazy stable footage with my small Insta360 One X

Depend from you tasks, dude. If you cover your need with Insta360 One X - of course, better to spend money for something else really important for you/family.
