SHENZHEN, China – 1 July, 2021 – ZHIYUN, the world’s pioneering gimbal innovator for cameras and smartphones, has launched the WEEBILL 2, the exciting reinvention of its iconic DSLR WEEBILL S gimbal, bringing unrivalled professionalism to every still and video captured.
Sporting a lightweight frame with sensational industrial lines, the innovative WEEBILL 2 offers optimal responsiveness and stabilisation capabilities with axis locks to reduce shakiness. Users gain maximum creativity and control through its trendsetting HD flip-out touch screen, while the innovative MasterEye Visual Controller combines image receiver, monitor and motion controller in one single device.
WEEBILL 2 is designed for mainstream mirrorless and DSLR camera and lens combinations, for example, Sony’s A7III+FE 24-70mm F2.8 or the Canon 5D4+EF 24-70mm F2.8.
Indomitable stabilisation capabilities thanks to Infineon sensor
The WEEBILL 2 is revolutionary in its use of the Infineon two-filter vector-splitting embedded sensor for unmatched performance. This, combined with its upgraded motor torque and core algorithm, for enhanced stability, enables the WEEBILL 2 to run analysis for complex interruptions to accurately detect and compensate for a broad range of handheld instability, even in extreme conditions.
Industry-first flip out HD screen offers enhanced command to your filmmaking
The WEEBILL 2 is the first gimbal to incorporate a feature-rich 2.88 inch, full-colour, flip-out HD touchscreen allowing for full command. The intuitive, rotatable and retractable interface allows for heightened user interaction as well as parameter adjustment and footage monitoring in a few taps for uninterrupted shooting. Users can also access intelligent features including one-touch SMART FOLLOW and TIMELAPSE and GESTURE CONTROL via the WEEBILL 2 touchscreen without having to use the ZY PLAY app.
Boosted ergonomic industrial design for exceptional user experience
The ZHIYUN WEEBILL 2 boasts an ergonomic, compact, industrial-style design with well-crafted lines in a durable structure, making it a pleasure to use. WEEBILL 2 offers ZHIYUN’s classic easy-to-carry sling grip functionality, which allows users to seamlessly switch to this effort-saving mode without the addition of extensions or altering the gimbal’s form. The outstanding grip function facilitates low-angle shooting and is suitable for comfortable, extended-hours operation.
Simplicity reimagined with ZHIYUN’s MasterEye Visual Controller and Image Transmission
WEEBILL 2 can be used in conjunction with ZHIYUN’s unique MasterEye Visual Controller as part of the WEEBILL Pro+ Kit. The sophisticated device eliminates the need for a separate monitor, image receiver and motion controller.
Additionally for the WEEBILL 2, a TransMount Image Transmission Transmitter AI supports up to 1080p and 60FPS high quality output, reduces time delay down to 60ms, with a transmission distance up to 150m. When the TransMount Image Transmitter AI is used with the MasterEye Visual Controller, the WEEBILL 2, cameras and smart devices, professional monitoring and advanced controls are capable of new, creative ways of shooting and versatility to bring your captured stories to life.
