Haven't tried it, but going through this will be a b*tch

I've tried various brushless gimbals and even though I see there a market for them, I think it's not an optimal tool. I'm not impressed by it nor will I consider buying one. Simply because I think the ergonomics of the units are totally screwed.
If we aren't careful we'll end up with cameras and tools like the one from this post WW2 photo.

Supposedly the exoskeleton can fit through doors my twisting the rig sideways (camera stays upright because of gimbal). However, I can see how that can screw with the Z axis all too easily.
I concur with Lars about the ergonomics of these rigs. The Sachtler Trinity seems like a hardcore turnkey fusion of steadicam and gimbal though. https://www.cinema5d...teadicam-combo/

I believe the Sachtler system, although cool, also uses a 2nd operator. but I'm sure it has a majestic mode as well like the Movi or Ronin. , Still I still cant get used to the lag when operating the system alone.
