Due to these reasons, they are good for everyone. However, before you buy one you should ask a few important questions that are important to consider.

Few questions to consider

2 or 3 axis gimbal
Both two and three-axis gimbal are available that let you get pictures in different directions. However since 2018 usually 3 axis gimbals are introducing in the market. So, you can skip this part.

Weight of camera
Considering camera weight is pretty much important as gimbal will be able to bear the weight of the camera. There is a minimum and maximum payload that it can bear so make sure that your camera doesn’t fall out beyond that limits. In case, the payload is less, attack other accessories like quick release plates. Don’t forget to weight it with a detachable lens and batteries.

Weight of gimbal
Some gimbals are not designed for everything that you attach to it. So get the one having standard ¼ inch thread. This is the standard one for a normal camera.

Build quality
Cheap ABS plastic is used to make cheaper gimbals. If you don’t want an expensive one then it is ok however you have to take good care of it to make it last longer. Don’t just throw it anywhere.

Battery life
Battery life is very important especially when you are going for a long day shoot or more than a day of shooting. Get the one with rechargeable and removable batteries. However, every gimbal you see will have different battery usage or life so buy one having long battery usage time.

Will it work on the phone?
Few come with their apps that can be connected with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. It makes the controlling of gimbal easy like changing its settings, moving it and more. But make sure that your phone is compatible with it.

Generally, not all are waterproof so you have to find a bit expensive one if you need them to be water-resistant. Get it only if you usually shoot underwater or in the rainy season.

Some of them can have software issues if you go for cheaper ones. So, always buy the best one which provides a firmware update to get reliable functions while shooting.
Gimbal for a mirrorless camera gives more professional footage only when you consider the above said important questions. So, hope you get the one that suits best for your camera.
