Can someone specify what are the differences between V1 and V2?

Do you all believe that the Crane is the best small stabilizer?

A lot of people use the Beholder here, are they comparable?

Thanks.

V2 has a built in quick release system, shorter handle and different batteries, payload is the same as v1. I think it's a pretty universal consensus that the crane is easily the best pistol grip gimbal around, bar none.

Ok, a review unit dropped in my mail today. But first let me say this: I know diddely squat about gimbals. I really don't pay any attention to them. In my work world a gimbal shot is like a drone shot

Hi

I have had my crain v2 for a few days now fitted with a canon eso 650d. the problem I'm having is after a short time of using the joy stick.I can feel a tension building up in the handle. if I then either loosen my grip or hold the gimble by the top. the handle will spin out of control for a few seconds until it stops. Its like its being wound up by an rubber band until you let go and off it spins. Any idea what is going on here? or do I need to return it?  cheers.

I have the zhiyun v2 and I've been facing problems recently where when I pan in locking or follow mode and my camera begins horizontal , it starts to roll as I pan it. It use to just pan and stay horizontal but now it's goes diagonally. I've tried to recalibrate but I can't even get past the third step. I've tried with and without release adapter as well and have tried without putting stuff beneath the motors as well. IMG_0890.MOV
