Hot on the heels of the recent announcement of the new Crane 3 S Series gimbals from Zhiyun is their new announcement of upgraded firmware for the original Zhiyun Crane 3-LAB which enhances its core functionality.
As you are likely aware the Crane 3-LAB was the perfect gimbal for larger payloads and for cameras that were just to large or difficult the balance on other gimbals especially setups for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K/6k and the ZCam E2 and E2 Flagship Series cameras.
The new Firmware adds camera control within the Zhiyun APP as well as a number of bug fixes and stability improvements.
This new Firmware makes the Zhiyun Crane 3-LAB a great option for those users who do not require the even larger camera payload capabilities of the new Crane 3 S. FYI The Crane 3 S will likely not begin shipping in Canada until the end of April or May.
The firmware update is available via the Zhiyun ZYPlay APP you can watch a short video below.
