F Mode: User's camera will follow the movements of the gimbal's handle.
L Mode: The direction of the camera is locked, making sure you don't miss any shot.
POV Mode: This gimbal also offers a full-range POV mode. This allows you to enjoy 360° synchronized movement on all three axes. It will not level off during motion, instead, the cam will remain locked in position despite the direction or how far you move the CRANE-M2. This results in perfect POV shots.
