Continuing our series on gimbals we have noticed a few people asking about a gimbal for Canon 750d cameras and what system they should be considering picking up. The tricky thing about the Canon 750d is that it comes in at the awkward weight of 1.22 pounds meaning that it is usually better to use a larger gimbal set up as once you have a lens mounted on the camera it can go over the upper payload of some of the smaller gimbals.
We have decided to feature two different gimbal systems in our article that will work perfectly with your 750d. We will also be touching on a third gimbal shortly that you may consider picking up but we will go into the features and benefits of each system throughout the article.
The Zhiyun Crane V2
In our opinion, the best stabilizer for Canon 750d cameras is the Zhiyun Crane V2 (Click here to check for product prices and availability). We feel that out of all the gimbals on the market right now it offers the best bang for your buck as it has had a few price tag reductions since its release a few years back but its features and performance as still solid. It is still one of the most popular gimbals available and a large number of videographers use it as their go-to handheld gimbal of choice. Many of these who own the Zhiyun Crane V2 have posted their own review (click here to read some of them) sharing their thoughts on the gimbal as well as how it has performed for them.
The Zhiyun Crane V2 is able to support an upper payload of just under four pounds meaning that it can easily take the 1.22-pound weight of your 750d camera body as well as any lens that you may choose to mount on your camera. The gimbal has a standard battery life of up to twelve hours meaning the Zhiyun Crane V2 will provide you with all the image stabilization you could ever ask for.
At this stage of the article, we would like to quickly touch on the Zhiyun Crane-M (Click here to check for product prices and availability) as it is another commonly recommended gimbal system but we feel that it should be avoided and the Zhiyun Crane V2 chosen instead. This is because the Crane M can only support a maximum payload of 1.43 pounds meaning that you have a very small amount of payload to work with when it comes to lenses and accessories for your Canon 750d.
Now that’s out the way, back on to the Zhiyun Crane V2. Although the 3-axis gimbal design used on the system has been slightly improved upon with the newer more expensive Cranes there is a reason that so many brands have essentially duplicated the 3-axis gimbal design on this gamble. It is very easy to use, offers some of the best image stabilization, it is quick to balance, and requires minimal maintenance. In use, this can allow you to literally get to your location, mount your camera, balance the rig and be recording high image quality video footage within thirty seconds.
We would like to quickly point out that the Zhiyun Crane V2 also uses the exact same quick release plate system of the Manfrotto tripod range. In addition to that, a bunch of other third-party tripod brands have also implemented the Manfrotto quick release system. This means that you are easily able to switch your Canon 750d rig between your gimbal and a large number of tripods without having to waste time.
If you are wanting to add an excellent little gimbal to your camera accessories then we would highly recommend you pick up the Zhiyun Crane V2. We have tried our best to cover its key features and the functionality that it offers, in addition to this, the reputation amongst the community the gimbal holds should make this the obvious choice.

The DJI Ronin-S
Now, to be clear, the DJI Ronin-S is without a doubt an excellent gimbal but the extra money that you pay simply go into features that are not needed for a 750d. For example, you are paying for what is at the time of writing at least, highest handheld gimbal payload of any gimbal coming in at eight pounds. Your 750d is 1.22 pounds and depending on your lens and external microphone the full rig may top out at around two pounds. That leaves six pounds of payload that you have paid for that you will never use.
That said, if your Canon 750d is just your temporary camera and you are planning on picking up some heavy DSLR rig in the future then chances are, you will want to grab the DJI Ronin-S now to save you having to purchase it in the future. If you are planning on keeping your Canon 750d as your go-to camera of choice for the foreseeable future though, we would recommend that you pick up the Zhiyun Crane V2 (Click here to check for product prices and availability) that we covered first any day and just save yourself the additional thirty to fourty percent on the price tag of the DJI Ronin-S.
