Is it worth it?
If you're a videographer or a cinematographer, this gimbal can do wonders for your work. The gimbal has a built-in tripod system with a remote trigger. The pro-package also comes with extra attachments.
The ZHIYUN WEEBILL 2 Pro has a payload of 7.3 pounds, which means it will hold most DSLR and Mirrorless cameras on the market, however it might not hold heavier pro cinema setups.

Why rent out your gear?
After getting my hands on it, I was very impressed. It's versatile, the monitor is great for high and low shots and the odd shape makes it considerably more comfortable.
It’s compact and easy to take with you on shoots. Could slip it into a backpack quite safely. Very easy to setup and you just turn it on and it’s ready to go.
Smoothness of videos, after you get used to it, it’s good!
Little complicated to set up, not acting the way I wanted to. Hard to twist manually, and camera’s view finder is not good while outdoors.
Initially i was a bit sceptical about the Weebill 2, the monitor seemed like a gimmick and the shape seemed odd.
Maximum payload of the Weebil won't hold your pro cinema setup with heavier camera and a lens.
The ZHIYUN WEEBILL 2 Pro is fitted with a built-in battery. However, the gimbal has a battery runtime of around 9 hours, which should be more than enough for a full-day shoot. The charging time from 0 to 100% is roughly 1.5 hours. The gimbal is designed so that you have to detach the camera for it to recharge, so you should always be sure that your gimbal is fully charged when you're out on a project.
The WEEBILL 2 Pro has a nice handle and a rubberized grip, so you're sure it will not slip out of your hands. It also has a tripod attachment that makes it easier to mount. It can also be used as a grip. With the pro package, you get the Sling Grip Handle, which gives you much more freedom in handling, especially when you have a separate monitor attached. One of the benefits of the pro package is complete creative control!
The ZHIYUN WEEBILL 2 Pro is compact and can be folded for more accessible transportation. This works great with the accompanying WEEBILL Carrying Case, which means you can take it anywhere and look good while you're doing it!
It has three rotating joints to help you balance and rotate your camera to your liking. It can do a 360° pan rotation, a 340° tilt rotation, and a 340° roll rotation. It also has three sliding sections to attach various-sized cameras. So you have a lot of artistic freedom in your shoot, with complete control over every adjustment.
The WEEBILL 2 Pro is designed with modularity. You can attach various things to your gimbal to customize your experience. It allows for real-time monitoring on external screens, wireless control, and adjusting of small parameters. It can even do automatic tracking of the subject. It works fast and has a 100-meter transmission range, making it great on set.
The ZHIYUN WEEBILL 2 has an Infineon sensor, an upgraded algorithm, and a better motor. What this means is that it allows for better stabilizing than previous models. The gimbal has excellent stabilization, and it works like a charm. It is also straightforward to set up and has many different modes to help you out.

Why you should trust us
At Wedio, we are on a mission to keep great stories alive. We achieve this by facilitating the sharing of knowledge, tools, and services that help you as a creator craft better stories. Today we help 100,000+ monthly creators become better — together. We believe in the power of the community. Instead of gathering product reviews from one creator, we involve hundreds of creators, and create both video- and written reviews. In that way, we present the essence of the collective rather than one opinion.
How we tested this product
We used a mixed-method design. Our qualitative video reviews, were created by hand-picked Wedio members. We shipped the product to them, they tried it for at least 30 days in real-life projects, and then they did an honest video review. Our quantitative written reviews, were collected from Wedio Renters and Lenders. When renters have rented the product, they have the option to leave a product review. When lenders create a product listing, they have the option to share their thoughts on the product itself.
How we fund this review
In order to keep delivering the best possible reviews for creatives, we have four different revenue streams. This includes (1) commissions from our short-term rentals (10 % from renters 20% from lenders whenever a rental is happening through Wedio), (2) commissions from our subscriptions (we get paid by our retail partners to deliver an order), (3) commissions from brands delivering products, and (4) commissions from affiliate links to other partners (such as retail partners, software, and other creative tools).
Even though we try to be as unbiased as possible, we still want to address two limitations of this review. First, our lenders can be affected by the “Endowment effect” when reviewing their gear. They would potentially rate their product higher than they would have done if they rented the product — just because they own the product themself. Second, there is the potential of instructors experiencing “Confirmation bias” when reviewing a product. If they received the product from us, they might have a tendency to look for all the advantages and good things about the product because they want to please Wedio and the product brand. To overcome this limitation, we strictly guide our instructors to be as objective as possible — a low rating is as valuable to us as a high rating. The review aims to guide other creators in the choice of gear.
The Wedio community reviews everything we recommend. When you buy through our links, we may earn a commission. Learn more
