    Because of the size and weight of Komodo, we are able to use much lighter and cheaper Gimbal and Steadicam options. Which ones would fit perfectly, based on different setups? I'm thinking a Komodo with V-Lock battery through a cable with a larger cine-lens together with a remote focus gearhead would add some weight. Then there's the option of a very stripped down using canon batteries and still lenses using something like Fool Control instead.

    Which options would fit Komodo best?

    To be honest, for a such compact camera - imho Movi M5 will be the best and most compact gimbal.

    I think Ronin MX is a very good option. It has two batteries, one for the gimbal and one for camera. Pretty small and lightweight gimbal.

    I prefer Movi pro. That way if you ever needed to load a heavier camera you're covered.

    1.93. I think 1.95 doesn't do much except for some extra camera compatibility which doesn't apply to me :)

    That's good to hear! :)

    I was thinking that anything upwards of a Ronin S or a Weebill-S will do the trick.
    The most important bit is whether the trigger button will work and if the focus wheel can control the electronic focus.
    These tiny gimbals can handle a considerable load so they seem like the perfect fit for Komodo!

    Have you had a chance to test the Ronin S?
