Our site sponsor B&H currently has a very interesting offer with the compact gimbal WEEBILL LAB from Zhiyun-Tech. Even despite its low weight, it can support payloads of up to 6.6 lbs (2.99 kg). The gimbal sells now for $369.99 and there are also discounted kits with various accessories available.
The WEEBILL LAB is a smaller brother of the Zhiyun Crane 3 LAB. Zhiyun-Tech first presented both gimbals last year at IBC and Photokina exhibitions. In case you want to refresh the memory and take a look at its specs, you can take a look at our article about the WEEBILL LAB from last year’s Photokina.
The WEEBILL LAB seems to be suitable for frequent travelers as the gimbal only weighs 2.13 lb (970 g) and its dimensions are quite compact too – 2.76 x 7.48 x 11.81″ (7 x 19 x 30 cm). Given its compactness it actually offers an impressive payload – it can support cameras up to 6.6 lbs (2.99 kg). Please keep in mind, that balancing setups with a heavy lens might not be possible due to the limited arm’s length.
A great feature of the WEEBILL LAB is that the arms can be locked for easier transport and balancing. Its design also makes it easier for use in the “underslung” mode.
B&H currently offers the WEEBILL LAB gimbal for $369.99. The discount is $229 and there is also a free Zhiyun-Tech phone holder included in the package. Additionally, there are two interesting kits available:
- Zhiyun-Tech WEEBILL LAB Creator package includes the WEEBILL LAB gimbal with the phone holder, TransMount monopod, follow focus motor, 2 quick-release mounts for the monopod / mini tripod, and multifunctional camera belt
- Zhiyun-Tech WEEBILL LAB Master package includes the whole Creator package and a Zhiyun-Tech TransMount multifunctional gimbal bag

The recently released compact one-handed gimbal Ronin-SC from DJI is a direct competitor to the WEEBILL LAB. This release seems to be the reason why Zhiyun decided to drop the price of WEEBILL LAB. Anyway, it is us filmmakers who profit from such occasions.
