Is there a good handheld gimbal for this camera? 

 

Also what Tripod would you recommend?  Would a Manfrotto 057 https://www.bhphotov...ber_Tripod.html and 502 Flathead suffice?

You may find any non-bowl type tripod limiting for film. You have to adjust all three legs separately to get the head level. There may be a bowl adapter for that tripod. But the weight capacity is far more than you need. Something much lighter would probably suffice- an H16 only weighs a few pounds.

What tripod would you recommend?  I wanted to be on the safe side because I have a rex-5 which is about 6 pounds and a vario switar which is around 2 and a half.
