Hi guys

Anyone knows if the Crane 3s can "communicate" with the ursa mini? Even if it's just limited to start and stop rec.

Although the Crane 3S can carry and balance the UMP G2, from my experience none of the connectivity functionalities work with the UMP G2. I don't think the RS2 does as well.

On the latest version of that list
( ... st-EN9.pdf)
the Canon Cs and Sony FS/FX cameras are listed for basic record start/stop functionality via optional USB-C to LANC adapter - which can't find as a product anywhere though.
Theoretically that should work with the LANC inputs on the URSAs as well, right?
In the gimbal's menu the camera control option for Sony and Canon "cine" does indeed exist, so maybe that adapter will be released at some point.
