  • Ok thats good to know. I'm still trying to balance the pan axis better...but I'll get there. I tried the lens holder attachment earlier, but it wasn't heavy enough. But like you said, adding some ...
  • Update. I managed to balance the crane with my minolta md 24mm lens + speedbooster. But as said above, I can seem to balance it with any of the notice lenses 25mm and 14mm . I can only get it like ...
  • Thanks for this. I found a similar issue with the g85 and 25mm lens.... Its too light. But when I attach my 24mm with speedbooster it seems to be heavy enough. Will give it another shot when I get ...
  • ah right cool. Whats the Roxant Pro? This is the main tutorial video I have been using, but just can't seem to balance it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD1ACO4inTo
  • I'm starting to think the same. I sold my dji osmo and bought the zhiyun a few days ago....but still can't seem to set it up :(
  • Created discussion thread Balancing Zhiyun Crane
    Hi, I got my Zhiyun crane v2 a couple of days ago, to use with my g80/g85. I have the patience of a saint, but man I can't seem to balance my camera on this thing. So far I have tried my 25mm and ...
  • After reading/watching more video reviews this week, I think I'm more inclined to sell the osmo and get the crane. I just need to weight my g85 with the legacy lenses I use, to see if its within ...
  • From what I can gather the lenses are stabilized too.
  • Ok will do. Thanks for the reply. Yeah I've read some people say to turn the IBIS off when using gimbals while others say to leave it switched on. But I'm guessing it will come down to personal ...
  • Created discussion thread G7/G85 - Zhiyun crane
    Hi guys, I was just wondering if any of you had any experience with using the Zhiyun crane? I've got a g85/g80 and DJI osmo (with z axis), which I use for videos at the moment. But I was thinking ...
  • Created discussion thread Zhiyun Crane vs DJI Osmo
    Hi, I curently have a  dji osmo with z axis, and a panasonic g85, which I have been using for videography. However, recently I have been thinking about selling the osmo and getting a Zhiyun crane. ...
  • Thanks for the input guys. "The main advantages for the Sigma are the shorter MFD (0.18 vs 0.30 m), better corners wide open and possibly the price" Does that stand for minimum focus distance? I ...
  • I was thinking about going for the minolta 24mm..but I was just wondering what else was out there. I was searching online, and someone suggested the sigma 24mm super ii was better than the minolta ...
  • Hi Mark, Am I right in thinking that with speedbooster... the 24mm lens will be close to 35mm fov? Thanks
  • Created discussion thread 24mm lens for m4/3 video
    Hi, I can anyone recommend a good 24mm video lens to use with my speedbooster/panasonic G85 for videography....preferbly in minolta md fitment? So far I have been using monolta md lenses and I'm ...
  • Thanks. I'll check that sub-forum out. Those pics look awesome. I don't think I have seen a sony nex option for m43. Where did you buy the zhongyi speedbooster from? I have been looking around ...
  • Hey GaryG. Can you still control the aperture  manually with the lens and on the actual adaptor adaptor? Also when shooting with no lens mounted enabled with the 58mm...do you set the focal length ...
  • That could be an idea. I bought the metabones adaptor by mistake...thinking it was a speedbooster. So I could keep that, and try a speed booster next.
  • Thanks for the info guys. As I said, I will be using these lenses on a Panasonic g85 body with an adaptor. can I just ask, would I be better off using a normal adaptor like I have (with no glass) ...
  • Hey Ralf. I have one of these:) https://www.proav.co.uk/metabones-minolta-md-lens-to-micro-four-thirds-adapter?utm_source=google_shopping going off what was said above, i assume because I'm using ...
