Although we have touched on this subject briefly a few times now we decided to set some time aside to get a dedicated article online covering what we feel is the best gimbal for Panasonic g7 cameras on the market right now. Although we had a decent sized short list initially, we decided to try to narrow it down to only one gimbal to feature but in the end, we settled on two products for the article.
Both of the gimbals that we settled on to feature have excellent reputations as well as a number of Lumix g7 users who picked them up as their go-to gimbals of choice. We will also be sharing some test footage below for each of the gimbals to show what kind of performance they both offer with a g7 mounted on them.
The Zhiyun Crane-M
The Zhiyun Crane-M comes with a high-quality build that not only makes the gimbal easy to use but it is also comfortable to hold. Its lightweight and comfortable design lets you mount your Panasonic g7 camera body on it with your lens of choice and easily operate the full rig for extended periods of time without getting pain in your hand that can often happen with some competing gimbal systems.
On top of this, as it is a simple and easy to use 3-axis handheld gimbal it offers some excellent image quality that will allow you to capture some very smooth footage with your Panasonic g7. The video below was recorded on a g7 camera mounted on a Zhiyun Crane-M and does a good job of showing the level of quality it can provide you.
All in all, if you are in the market for a 3-axis gimbal for your Panasonic g7 then we would definitely advise that you consider picking up the Zhiyun Crane-M. It is an all-around great gimbal system that has a proven history of being able to outperform some of the more expensive gimbals in the market making it a right little bargain.
The video below offers an additional third-party, independent review for the Zhiyun Crane-M to offer our readers an independent opinion of the product.
The Zhiyun Crane V2
The sheer success of the Zhiyun Crane V2 has resulted in many photographers and videographers picking it up as their gimbal of choice and over time this has lead to plenty of independent reviews (click here to read some of them) being posted online for the system. If you have a few spare minutes then we would highly recommend that you read them as getting an independent opinion on something is always a good idea. Additionally, the video below shows some test footage that was recorded with a Panasonic g7 mounted on a Zhiyun Crane V2. As you can see, the footage is very smooth and clean.
If you are looking for a high-quality 3-axis gimbal that will easily support your Panasonic g7 camera body as well as some of the popular heavy lenses out there while still providing some excellent image quality we feel that you should check out the Zhiyun Crane V2. As we mentioned earlier in the article, the gimbal is one of the older Zhiyun products and thus has fallen in price a fair amount over the years offering you a real bargain.
