The WEEBILL-S from Zhiyun-Tech incorporates the underslung mode design of its predecessor, the WEEBILL LAB, as well as new features and more compact size. A handle on the back of the sling mode design enables quick switching to underslung mode as well as improved handling in all other modes. Upgraded motors and a new stabilization algorithm are among the other enhancements. The Zhiyun Weebill S gimbal has a 300 percent increase in motor torque and a 50% increase in responsiveness. This makes camera/lens combinations like the Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-70mm zoom lens more balanced.
The TransMount Image Transmission Module is a tiny device designed to elegantly mount beneath the quick release plate of the Zhiyun weebill s gimbal and allow wireless streaming of up to 1080p30 resolution over distances up to 328′, will be introduced alongside the WEEBILL-S as an optional accessory. Using appropriate receiver modules, up to three devices, including phones, tablets, and certain professional monitors, can be synchronized.
The Zhiyun-Tech ZY Play app, which is available for iOS and Android, has been updated to interact with the Image Transmission Module, allowing for more efficient gimbal control. SmartFollow 2.0, a feature in the app, combines with the module to offer precision object tracking directly from the app. Sync Motion is a technology that allows for real-time monitoring and synchronous motion control. ViaTouch 2.0, which lets you operate numerous functions and settings of your camera and gimbal directly from your smartphone screen, is one of the new features. Where supported, these include zoom and focus, as well as follow speed, ISO, aperture, and more. Creative capture tools such as Panorama, Timelapse, Motionlapse, and Long Exposure Timelapse, among others, are available in the ZY Play app.
The WEEBILL-S has six operating modes. Full-Range POV Mode, which allows 360° synchronous movement in all three dimensions, and Vortex Mode, which allows for 360° barrel shots, are two examples. All six modes are described in detail in the Features section below. Intelligent Auto-Tune, which automatically recognizes and adapts to the weight of your camera to deliver the best power economy possible, is another feature of the gimbal. The battery life of the Zhiyun Weebill S gimbal stabilizer for DSLR mirrorless has also been extended to up to 14 hours.
With supported cameras, the Zhiyun Weebill S gimbal stabilizer provides for electronic focus control. The inbuilt handwheel is used for this. For the most up-to-date list of compatible cameras, see the Zhiyun-Tech website. Optional motors allow for mechanical focus and zoom control on the gimbal. The Zhiyun Weebill S gimbal stabilizer is compatible with TransMount motors and all other TransMount accessories that the prior model supported. The Quick Setup Adapter Set, for example, has grown quite popular since its release.
A dual-layer fast-release plate from Arca Swiss and Manfrotto, as well as a storage container, are included with the WEEBILL-S. A tiny tripod that can be used as a stand or an extension handle is also provided. The small tripod additionally completes the gimbal for low-mode, underslung operation. It connects to the back handle and serves as an overhead handle.
Note: The Zhiyun Weebill S gimbal stabilizer for DSLR & mirrorless camera doesn’t support many 3rd-party 18650 batteries because it requires the slightly shorter kind made by Zhiyun-Tech, so only Zhiyun-Tech 18650 batteries are recommended.
Zhiyun Weebill S Features
The WEEBILL-S incorporates the rear handle design of its predecessor, the WEEBILL LAB, into a more compact form with new features. These include highly upgraded motors and stabilization algorithms.
TransMount Image Transmission Module
The Zhiyun Weebill S gimbal stabilizer supports the optional TransMount Image Transmission Module, which is being released at around the same time. This compact module attaches under the mounting plate of the gimbal and allows for 1080p30 transmission for up to 328′ to corresponding receivers. Up to three receivers are supported, allowing you to stream to three devices simultaneously. Compatible devices include smartphones, tablets, and select monitors.
Upgraded ZY Play App
The companion ZY Play iOS/Android app has been upgraded to work together with the optional TransMount Image Transmission Module to provide an enhanced workflow. Many features, such as ViaTouch 2.0, have also been upgraded to work independently of the Image Transmission Module.
Zhiyun Weebill S ( 6 Modes of Operation )
Full-Range POV Mode
Allows 360° synchronous movement on all three axes. This ensures that instead of leveling off during motion, the camera will remain locked in position no matter how far you move the gimbal in a certain direction, allowing for true POV shots.
Create 360° barrel shots.
Operate at maximum follow speed for extreme sports and similar applications.
The camera pans as you turn the gimbal left and right. This feature is highly useful for hyper-lapse capture.
The camera will follow the movement of the gimbal handle.
Keep your subject in focus when you mimic dolly or jib movements.
