Zhiyun, a leading gimbal manufacturer, announced the WEEBILL-S 3-axis gimbal earlier this week. Designed for mainstream mirrorless and DSLR cameras plus lens combos, the new gimbal offers ultra-low latency image transmission in 1080p with a brand new TransMount Image Transmission Module while ViaTouch 2.0 allows your smartphone to function as a professional monitor and multi-functional remote controller.

The latest iteration of the WEEBILL-S has a 300% upgraded power torque motor along with a 50% increase in responsiveness. It’s compatible with multiple camera/lens combos, including Sony’s A7 III+FE 24-70mm F2.8 or the Canon 5D Mark IV+EF 24-70mm F2.8. A unique ergonomic sling mode lets operators easily switch between high and low angle shots using the TransMount quick setup kit. The 8th version of the Instune algorithm enables the gimbal to automatically recognize the weight and selects the perfect motor strength for the best shooting accuracy.

The all-new image transmission module enables a maximum of 1080p / 30p streaming, 100-meter image transmission featuring LUT, pseudo coloring, focus peak, and zebra adjustment for professional monitoring and livestream publishing. The TransMount image transmission module allows you to add 3 devices to the stabilizer - a smartphone, tablet, or professional monitor. Interchangeable batteries enable you to run the device for 14 hours straight. You can charge your camera in real-time which comes in handy for day-long shoots. Other features include:

  • ViaTouch 2.0 which creates a seamless connection between smartphone and camera.
  • SmartFollow 2.0. enables you to select a point of interest from the ViaTouch 2.0 interface and the camera will follow its movement with ultra-low latency and a cinematic experience.
  • The all-new motion sensor control system, Sync Motion, gives you the advantage of controlling the stabilizer’s direction with a smartphone and an ultra-high responsive speed gives you an immersive filmmaking experience.
  • WEEBILL-S supports electronic focus and mechanical focus/zoom control with a control wheel on the grip, to realize a fast and accurate focus or zoom when shooting. Using the servo focus/zoom motor, users can control the zoom and focus for a more professional filmmaking experience.
