  7. edin chavez says:

    I just picked the Crane M up my self. It is awesome!!!

  8. Adam Tooms says:

    beautiful video. I have a question: did you try the gimbal with the camera fully zoomed in? was shake more visable?

    Thankyou 🙂

  9. astigmatik says:

    I've been saving up for the Crane M and I have enough money now! But, I have a "burning" question: is it easy to balance (before turning on the gimbal)? I'll be using the G7x mark I. Because if it's not, then maybe I'll have to buy a separate quick release plate so that I can easily remove the camera and change the battery and attach it again without having to rebalance the whole thing again. I hope I'm making any sense.

    Hey there! Great vid. Thk u! I needed to see how the canon g7x will sit in the Zhiyun crane as I am thinking of getting it too. How do find till now? Still good?

    Btw i subscribed to you!

  12. Viaggio Leggero says:

    Do you have problems switching to inverted mode? If the camera is balanced ( same as yours ), it is impossible to switch because the camera touches the arm.. thanks for your reply!

  13. Kyriacos Kyriacou says:

    Hi I have a question , can I control the camera with the gimbal ?

  14. Andre Nguyen says:

    Great video! I learned a lot from watching. The different panning shots you used. 🙂 I assume any slo-mo that you had were in 60fps from G7X Mark ii? I own the Smooth-Q gimbal and wonder if G7X Mark ii would fit between the phone clamps. 😛 Or I could try using my LG V30.

  15. Davide Berti says:

    why all video in rallenty mode???

  16. Indonesia Guide says:

    nice gimbal..how about battery life?

  17. artmanjamin says:

    Subscribed – Do you have the G7X M2 screen up when shooting? Looks like balancing this takes longer time. This is currently on sale for $240 on amazon, B&H and adoroma

  18. artmanjamin says:

    Do you have the strength of the crane to low or weak with the G7X M2?

  19. kersz says:

    why slow motion? do you like chariots of fire or something? How can I see the result if its full of effects and slow motion? :S

  20. Wujek Edek says:

    What about Zhiyun Smooth Q ? Have u tested it ?

  21. KPC NOUSHAD says:


  22. Tim Nguyen says:

    Hi Kristi, wondering does the gimbal come with the tripod built in we see in your video? Or is this a separate attachment?

  23. Harald Wrede says:

    Wondering how you start and stop filming with the g7x and the crane m? I think thats very inconvenient to start and stop the video pressing the button at the camera. zhiyon should produce and sell sone remote cable to connect to the crane m and the g7x

  24. Authentic Benny says:

    Where are the locations of the shoot… I would love to visit !!!

  25. Black Daddy says:

    Horrible music great video.

  26. Everything's Hot says:

    Which editing software use ?

  27. K C A says:

    Great footage and wonderful editing / music syncing!

  28. Mikey Rider says:

    The first video footage you show on this, what FPS was it set to? Did you have to have it higher to slow it down in post? I'm new to this and have bought a G7X Mk2 and looking for a gimbal. Thanks for creating your video.

  29. xiodos says:

    he recorded with the g7x mark ii, it looks fucking amazing. how come other g7x videos look like shit? like "low bit rate" type ?

  30. __ツ says:

    Should i buy this gimbal? for vlogging

  31. Wanderlust Diaries says:

    which software you are using to edit this clips ?

  32. Aditi Pant says:

    Can we use osmo Mobile 2 for g7xmk2 ?

  33. mustang13990 says:

    Will this work with the canon m50?

  34. Ksenia - Breakfast Criminals says:

    Hey Cristi the gimbal you link in description isn't available on amazon! However this Zhiyun Crane 2 is available: https://amzn.to/2RPQnDn

  35. Nicholas K says:

    Thank you for sharing!

  36. The Adventures of Peas and Carrots! says:

    Amazon says it's not available. Do you have an alternate recommendation for a gimbal for the G7x?

  37. Blake Slack says:


  38. Rob Marshall says:

    is it gold plated and do the video on its own? $349 is way to much imo. To bad too I was going to buy it until I saw the high price.

  39. Joshua Daley says:

    Hey, I bought the Crane M based on this and a few other videos, but it seems that the Crane M was not made to connect to the G7X. Do you have a trick for getting it to pan and zoom?

  40. Pinay Danish Couple says:

    I'm planning to buy one, hopefully soon. amazing shot

  41. utseay says:

    This version is unavailable on Amazon? What is the current equiv model for G7X Mark ii?

  42. Sultan Ameer says:

    Perfect ❤️

  43. Luke Bedford says:

    Is this stabiliser the best option for the Canon g7x Mk2 ?

  44. Amrita Sykes says:

    Can you still lift the screen up on g7x m ii whilst using the gimbal?

  45. KenjiChang says:

    Don't take this comment as offensive, but your wife or girlfriend is BEAUTIFUL!!!

  46. Angel LEW says:

    I'm looking for a gimbal for g7x, gopro, phone all-in-one AND have it be waterproof. ideas?

  47. putu putri28 says:

    so that's good for pocket camera

  48. The Indian Nomad says:

    This cinematic video is really a source of inspiration for a beginner like me. Thanks so much.

  49. CraftingFreakAsaurus says:

    This gimbal is no longer available. Any other recommendations?

  50. Almira Family says:

    Enjoy this video..nice

  51. Steven Rogers says:

    hahahaha 1000$ , way overpriced….

  52. Dae 'Cla says:

    Hi, Cristi! Liked your video a lot, thanks!

    Can you please help me? How did you get such a cinematic look? I mean, which settings did you use? I am trying to figure out how to film right with canon g7x mark ii from april, but my videos are still with so much digital noice😔😣 Or is it montage think?

  53. thewrightsights says:

    I would like to see what this looks like in regular speed instead of slow motion.

  54. La Bel Roussa says:

    I hope you find this in 2019: Can i use it for my Sony a6000 mirror-less camera too?

  55. ReaperGT says:

    Will the g7x work with the crane 1

  56. Morphix007 films says:

    i might get this crane and keep the camera because no views anyhow hahha.
    as for my microphone my idea is get medical cotton wool ball stick tape on near the mic

  58. VISHNU meena says:

    lovely video dude

  59. WeWorkToVisitVegas says:

    I know it's a couple years old .. but great review for a gimbal that works with the Canon👍

  60. Nimbleful says:

    I'd love to see a prolonged walking shot and even a running shot to get a good feel of how stable it is. Short clips make it tricky to see the stabilization at work.

  61. Timothy Little says:

    Great video! I have the same combo but I am unable to pair the two wirelessly. Were you able to do so? The app says it is connected to the G7X MKII but thinks it's a sony and nothing happens on the camera.

  62. Ginu Divakar says:

    This gimbal cost $340 a price of a Sony FDR underwater camera….
