Many Crane 2 users shoot with the Zhiyun dual handles. With the new Follow Focus remote we can finally consider fully controlling the gimbal right from the dual handles but unfortunately, many of us are now realising that it’s not that easy to get it into a position to easily control it while holding both handles.
Some people have even resorted to installing it upside down! That’s why we developed a new replacement handle that integrates the customers own follow focus remote (ZW-B03) directly into the handle so now you can pull focus and tilt with ease right from your handle.
There’s a version for people that prefer downward handles and another for upward handle users. These come in both left and right. Even though I’m a righty I prefer the left side handle as it puts the follow focus wheel in a slightly better position than the right side… but if you only expect to be using the follow focus infrequently then the right side is a good option. There are two additional ¼-20 attachment points for adding gear such as a field monitor and audio recorder.
We spent a lot of time thinking about the ergonomics of the handle and designed it to be easily held in a number of different positions to suit your style. There’s even a rest that lets you concentrate just on the focus.
These are built super tough out of hi-tech engineering materials with brass and stainless fittings so you can rely on them to take any abuse your work dishes out.
Now you can take your dual handed gimbal shots to that next level with the easy access follow focus and joystick controls.
The clamping section conforms to the bar very well due to its partly flexible nature. Only tighten the clamp until it holds your bar without slipping under normal filming loads. If you continue to tighten the clamp further past this point you may permanently damage the handle!
