In the 72nd Edition of the GOOD DESIGN® Awards, the ZHIYUN CRANE-M2 S won in the electronics category from among approximately 4,000 shortlisted entries from 52 countries. The entries were judged by a board of independent, international jurors, with awards given to products determined to have achieved the greatest design quality and innovation.
GOOD DESIGN is the world’s oldest and longest running design prize. It honors all design achievements in all its disciplines: from product, packaging, communication and service design, interior and external architecture, to user interface (UI), user experience (UX), and professional concepts.
The CRANE-M2 S gimbal joins ZHIYUN’s range of award-winning products, offering a compact, intuitive design that feels completely natural in the hand during use. With a built-in 0.66-inch display showing real-time status and operating parameters of the camera and gimbal, users benefit from the ease of its at-a-glance detail while they shoot.
Another award-wining feature is ZHIYUN’s latest quick release technology. With its V-shape design it provides better operational efficiency, allowing quick interchange between any cameras needed on the shoot, while dual safety locks ensure the equipment always remains attached.
At just 549g, the CRANE-M2 S is as portable as a smartphone gimbal but can still handle premium DLSR cameras up to the Sony A7SIII with small prime lenses. The super lightweight body impressed judges by combining industry-leading motors with more strength and extended axes, making it a must-have for high velocity, ‘run-and-gun’ filmmakers.
