So you want a gimbal but your not sure what to get?
Choosing your first gimbal can be a bit overwhelming especially if your new to the technology. There are many different styles of gimbals out there for cameras small and large. The type and size of camera you are using will dictate what gimbal you will need, as will the usage requirements. If you are running a GoPro Hero3 or Hero4 you will want to look for a GoPro specific gimbal. For those who are running more advanced larger mirrored or mirrorless DSLR cameras with different lens sizes you will need to closely pay attention to the total gross weight of your camera and lens combination as well as the overall dimensions of your camera before selecting an adjustable DSLR gimbal.
Typically most gimbals are offered in just a handheld form - meaning there specifically designed to be used for handheld use only. However there are some gimbals out there, such as the DJI Ronin-M, that can be 'hot-swapped' to be used as attachments to different types of rigs such as camera cranes, cable cams, and even aerial drones.
