    i have the politely H2. I like the gimbal, but the software is kinda meh. settings are very...ambiguous. I wish the software was more like the zhiyun crane.

    Anyone floating a BMMCC + Sigma 18-35mm + MB SpeedBooster on the Z Crane?
    Thats 302g + 810g + 176g respectively = 1288g ( Call me a mathematician ) so weight is good at least with latest firmware...not too sure about the weight distribution though!

    I'm going to try the Sigma 18-35 with a Sony a6000. That should at least give an idea as to the weight distribution.

    Bad news: the BMCC will not fit the Zhiyun Crane. It's so wide that you need to put the bolt into the third slot and then you can't balance it, whatever lens you choose.

    Test run with the Zhiyun Crane and RX100 IV: https://vimeo.com/199248996

    Pass: gimbal

    I'm going to try setups with the Sigma 18-35 this weekend.

    Sorry for the blown out highlights and robotic motion at the start. First time out, and I'm still testing the video capabilities of the RX100 IV.

    I explained a couple pages back that this combination will NOT fly on ANY single-handled gimbal. The Sigma lens is the issue. It's too long and too heavy for its length. It puts the center of gravity too far forward.
    Cameras: Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Camera (x2), Panasonic GH2 (x2), Sony RX100 ii, Canon 6D, Canon T2i,

    Lights: Every Chinese clone you can imagine

    Thanks Stewart for pointing that out, I completely missed your earlier post when I asked the question originally.

    If you have a light enough load, it may be possible to put on a counter weight to the Sigma 18-35 and still stay under the weight limit. I've had a busy week, but hope to try this soon. Main issue is having a counter balance that meets the weight requirements and is low profile enough to maintain clearance.
