The Zhiyun-Tech CRANE 3 LAB Master Package includes the CRANE 3 LAB gimbal and dedicated accessories that allow for an optimal workflow with the gimbal. The CRANE 3 LAB supports up to 10 lb and features a standout design with a top handle. This handle provides an additional point of stability as well as an easy way to switch to inverted mode.
In addition to the accessories that come standard with the CRANE 3 LAB, such as a mini tripod, the Master Package also includes a quick release baseplate, telescopic monopod, multifunctional gimbal bag, focus/zoom servo kit, two quick setup adapters, a phone holder, and a multifunctional camera belt in size large.
The baseplate lets you easily move your camera between the gimbal and the hanging straps provided on the gimbal bag and camera belt. It accepts the gimbal mounting plate on one side and latches onto the straps on the other. The idea is that when you pack everything away in the gimbal bag, you can leave your camera out for easy access without having to remove the gimbal plate. The monopod is designed to secure to a quick release receptacle on the camera belt and allow for more stable jib-style shots, with the weight of the gimbal taken off your hands and supported by the belt. Even without the belt the monopod can be used as a comfortable extension.
The gimbal bag fits the gimbal, camera, lenses, other accessories, and up to a 15″ laptop. It offers hanging straps on the outside and comes with a lens bag and accessories bag to secure to these straps. With an extra-large interior space, pockets, and exterior straps, the bag provides an all-in-one carriage solution for the gimbal. The servo kit consists of the Max and Lite motors for the CRANE 3 LAB. The gimbal supports two motors at the same time, so both can be mounted to control focus and zoom.
The Quick Setup Adapters let you attach the mini tripod or monopod to the bottom of the gimbal by quick release functionality, instead of having to screw it in each time. And the phone holder will hold your smartphone on the side of the gimbal for monitoring. It supports up to 6.3″ phones and can be articulated forward and backward as well as folded up when not in use.
