Zhiyun-Tech WEEBILL LAB Overview
The Zhiyun-Tech WEEBILL LAB introduced a new design to motorized handheld gimbal stabilizers. Zhiyun has added support for a mini tripod in the upper section of the gimbal, allowing for two-handed operation as well as easily switching to underslung mode. At the same time, Zhiyun has shortened the main handle to make the gimbal more compact and lighter. The WEEBILL LAB supports up to 6.6 lb and offers pan follow, full follow, locking, POV, vortex, and PhoneGo modes with 360° pan, tilt, and roll rotation. PhoneGo mode enables the gimbal to operate at maximum follow speed for extreme sports and similar applications. The WEEBILL runs for up to 10 hours on two supplied 18650 batteries.
The WEEBILL LAB supports a single external servo motor for controlling focus or zoom using the onboard handwheel on the side. The TransMount Max Servo is recommended because it has the torque to handle zoom (which requires more power than focus adjustment) and can be used interchangeably between the focus and zoom rings.
The gimbal includes an iOS/Android ZY PLAY app (free download) which provides features such as panorama, focus time-lapse, motion time-lapse, long exposure time-lapse, camera settings, and more. The WEEBILL also has an OLED display and onboard controls including a joystick and shutter release button.
Along with the WEEBILL, Zhiyun has released an entire ecosystem of optional, dedicated TransMount accessories to allow for more enhanced use of the gimbal. These include a phone holder for monitoring, servo motor, camera belt, and specialized monopods that work together with the belt and gimbal to allow for stable jib-style shots. Another useful accessory is the TransMount Quick Setup Adapter which allows you to attach the included mini tripod by quick release functionality. The mini tripod can also be attached the standard way on the bottom of the gimbal, to function as a stand or extension. If you incorporate two Quick Setup Adapters, you'll be able to quickly move the mini tripod between the two locations. You can also add a second mini tripod and have one in both positions.
Crafted Latch Design
The WEEBILL LAB is designed with a red latch next to each axis, making balancing much easier. You can lock certain axes with these latches while balancing the other(s), and you can save the setup for later use. This design allows for flexible use of the gimbal, providing for more efficient use in run-and-gun applications.
Dual QR Plates and Enhanced Balancing System
The WEEBILL LAB camera balancing system features the above-mentioned latch design plus dual quick release plates (Arca-Swiss/Manfrotto). This combination allows balancing the camera and getting the gimbal ready for operation faster and easier. The dual quick release plates consist of a Manfrotto baseplate and Arca-Swiss camera plate. With the camera plate attached to your camera you can transition between equipment and not have to rebalance the gimbal when attaching the camera back on the gimbal.
In addition to the standard operational modes, the WEEBILL LAB also features PhoneGo Mode, which lets the gimbal operate at maximum follow speed for extreme sports and similar applications.
The included ZY PLAY iOS/Android app offers features such as panorama, focus time-lapse, motion time-lapse, long exposure time-lapse, and more.
