    Looks like the 16mm is finally listed at B&H and Amazon, but with the caveat that it's not available for a few weeks. I see ones on Aliexpress (for less than B&H's price) that claim to be shipping in...

    Can you tell Meike that this is confirmed, as I see no information from them on the subject. If the 16mm lens is close to Veydra quality I'd love to get my hands on it. I got to use a friend's Veydra...

    I've used it a bunch with my 1620g setup (5D3 w/24-105), and have gotten great results. Somewhere on Zhiyun's facebook page I think they mention a max of 1800g, that seems more in line with my...

    It definitely can carry that much weight -- but I did run into some shakes this morning with the same setup that was too unbalanced. Balance becomes much more critical and tricky with such a payload....

    I took the leap and bought the Crane, and it definitely works just dandy with my 1620g setup. Did a test last night upright, and one this morning inverted. Will post a clip.

    Edit:
    Here's a clip...

    There's a long thread over at eoshd about the Zhiyun Crane. I've crossposted to this thread in the hopes of hearing whether anyone over there has tried a heavier load on the Crane.

    Zhiyun says that the Crane's specified max capacity is very conservative. I wrote them as follows:

    By the numbers yes, but if the other manufacturers are overstating the capacity of their gimbals, and came-tv is not -- or if they're all deciding their load ratings using different criteria, then it...

    gimbal weight (gm)
    max load as a percentage of gimbal weight
    price

    I was thinking along those lines. That's why I included the Beholder DS1 in the list. It appears as per this video that the DS1 can function while carrying a 5DmkIII and 24-105 f4L, a combination...

    What appears to be an official instagram account of Zhiyun includes several photos of a Canon 5D mk III with reasonably-heavy lens on a Zhiyun Crane. Example.
    So I wrote them asking about whether...

    Looks like that Zhiyun Crane only supports a 1200g payload. So y'all mirrorless folk may have a good option there but it's likely not sufficient for a Canon 5DmkIII and lens. The Zhiyun "Shining",...

    The way it was described I kinda wondered if he meant there was a loose bearing or something, and that the motor shaft itself was wiggling (even when powered off). But that's just me speculating...

    With SimpleBGC I think you should always use whatever version matches the firmware on your gimbal. Gotta find 2.59 b8. I did see this mention of it:

    Don't quote me on this - but I think the SimpleBGC software will let you save the current settings, so you can easily restore them if you screw it all up.

    One thing that differentiates this gimbal from other similar gimbals including the DS1 is that it includes encoders on the motors. In theory this should allow the gimbal's software to detect the...
