ZHIYUN Crane M3 Pro: The Ultimate Review by Petros Ioannou
In Petros’s ultimate review learn more about the key features, pros and cons, excellent connectivity, mic, integrated LED lights and more 🎉
Pros & cons
Product review chapters
According to Petros' experience, this gimbal is everything he wanted in a small package to carry around, small, lightweight, and powerful. But how does this small gimbal compare to previous bigger models?
The Crane M3 Pro Touchscreen comes with options and modes, helping in different shoots, to stabilize, follow, lock, or balance your gimbal.
The visual indicator of the balance is a great feature that Zhiyun added to the Crane M3 Pro, a gimbal that works for beginners as much as it does for the pros.
Pros & Cons
It's small and lightweight and has locking arms, perfect for travel and run and gun shoots. The menu is user-friendly and has a balance feature.
It comes with a nice light leather case, a LED, and a microphone most for interviews or vlogs. From 25£ rent a day, and 35£ for a subscription, the Crane M3 Pro is well worth it and would be a great addition to any content creator's arsenal.
Perfect travel gimbal, pack light but pack gear to get great shots, run and gun shoots, and interviews. You can use it with a Gopro and your smartphone with excellent functions and great stability.
