Another new feature is the detachable handles that make it possible to choose between TransMount SmartSling or EasySling handles.

The EasySling handle enables versatile ways of holding the gimbal. The ability to angle the handle makes it easy to switch from having the gimbal at normal height down to low angles. There are dedicated buttons for different tracking modes to quickly change method without thinking.

This will give more strength and power to adapt to constant intense motions and serve as a compact yet fast-charging power bank for your devices. With the battery pack you will get a runtime of 21 hours.
Just like the previous LAB and Weebill models, Crane 3S has the possibility to create a wireless connection to a smartphone and use this as an advanced remote controller with the help of the transmission module. With full HD (1080p) wireless video support, the smartphone acts as a monitor. This will help to compose the image and get an overview of important settings.
In addition to HD image transmitting, ViaTouch 2.0 seamlessly connects a smartphone or camera with the gimbal.
