Entry level version with the basic non-smart handle. To be honest you may likely need it only once. Condition is used with minor marks and blemishes in various places as seen in the photo but nothing really major. The tilt axis lock is a little tired for the lack of a better expression but locks and unlocks fine. Fully working, without any strange noises.The camera plate is missing some of the addon bits to strap it to the lens. It is Not needed for average mirrorless camera until you go into something like1.5kg+ long telephoto lenses such as 100-400mm. Boxed and comes with factory polystyrene case, which in my view is not very useful at all. So expect to find or get your own premium travel case for this.
These are really heavy at around 2.5KG before mounting the camera and lens. So expect to gently handle 4KG+ final setup. It will take up to 6.5KG payload. Crane 3S will easily support Sigma ART primes and all of the 16-35mm & 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses. I believe it can take even some RED bodies with dedicated CINE lenses under 6.5KG total weight.So if your setup is long and heavy you probably need this one. I can balance Canon R6 with EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and R adapter and there is even arm extension bit if you want to do completely unrestricted movements like 360 with such a long setup for whatever reason. WARNING: if you do try to install the extension and pull one of the cables out you are on your own to trace it back and fix!!! So leave it alone unless necessary. This applies to any and every Crane 3S out there. I have another set of FREE 3 compatible batteries so you are welcome to them when collecting. If RM accepts I will include them in the package as there are strict limits in place.
