After seeing a number of people reaching out recently, we have decided to publish this review going over what we feel is the best gimbal for Sony RX100 cameras currently available on the market right now. Now, thankfully, unlike many other popular cameras out there these days, the Sony RX100 is actually a very small and lightweight camera allowing you to get some excellent image stabilization without having to break the bank.
That said, we feel that the Zhiyun Crane M is without a doubt the best gimbal stabilizer on the market right now for people who own an RX100. The Crane M has a maximum upper load capacity of around 1.43 pounds meaning that it can easily support the 0.53-pound weight of your RX100 without issue. In addition to this, the listed maxamum battery life of the Crane M is around twelve hours but with the RX 100 leaving so much of the payload weight open we think you should be able to get more battery per full charge.
The video footage below was recorded using the Zhiyun Crane M 3-axis gimbal and shows just how smooth and easy the footage is when recorded using a camera mounted on this gimbal system.
As the Manfrotto quick release plate system is such a popular design used by a ton of third-party tripod manufacturers now, there are even some budget-friendly tripods available that you can use. All in all, The Zhiyun Crane M is a great little budget system that is able to provide you with some excellent and smooth video footage for your video recording or vlogging.
The video below offers an additional third-party, independent review for the Zhiyun Crane M to offer our readers an independent opinion of the gimbal.
