Gimbal suggestions for Canon 814XLS, anyone? I think it's time to start thinking about stabilization.

The canon comes in around 2kg without film right? So the smaller gimbals are probably out. The Zyeun crane 2 is pretty good but will likely not allow for such a long camera. The Ronin-M could technically balance you but I'm not a fan of DJI kit at the moment. Right on the edge of handling the weight too. No chance of a follow focus as a bartech can be between 500g to 750g depending on motor.

 

A second hand Movi M5 could do you quite well actually. Field proven and have come down in price a lot recently.

Maybe even a Letus Helix Jr
