You're leaving us in suspense and we've got enough of that already. Why should we avoid Zhiyun?

Debating getting this for BMPCC4K and Sigma 18-35mm. I have the DJI Ronin SC and it can't handle this combo.

Before i used moza aircross v1, it was very good gimbal without any problems, then i sold it , i used zhiyun crane v1 and now i have weebil s , one broken other one wobbles, just enter facebook weebil s you will see how many complaints about products. They promise more give shit. They dont even fixed weebil s now they are teasing new one...i regret.

Also agree I will never buy a Zhiyun product again. The software is just atrocious. I had their Smooth Q gimbal and the android software was beyond bad - no support, never updated it.

I ended up recording something pretty important via their app, it showed recording and everything and then the file was 32 bytes and corrupted.
They just don't care after they sell you the product.

I've switched to DJI and have been happy. Osmo Mobile 2 for phone and Ronin SC for mirrorless.

got in on this last time it was offered at this price... for those asking about the differences between the weebill, for me the crane 3 is more robust, larger payload at 10lbs (my cam is built out pretty heavy and it handles it fine), on top of that, it's cheaper than than then weebill-s at this price... but I do agree, the software really sucks ass, if you are patient and are willing to give it some time (I make my wife do this part because I'm not) then it's a solid deal... if you aren't in the market and can wait for other options from DJI or can afford the ronin-s or the EasyRigs and they work well in with your workflow, style and shoots, I'd also investigate those options. As for reaching out to Zhiyun after issues, yeah... I haven't had the need but don't imagine it would be easy, there are several groups on FB that they take part in, but they aren't US based and it is probably just as others who have had issues explain here. B&H has a good return policy so if you do order, it'd be wise to test it out right away and see if it works with what you do + test in all positions and all functions (upside down, barrel rolls, etc). happy shooting

Terrible Android SW on all their products. Sadly this is the same for most Chinese Mfg. Their aim is to get the product out, pay for the great reviews (fcking youtubers), "try" to get SW updated and fix and if you can't fck it.
