Highly suggest anyone interested to watch a few reviews before they make the purchase. I wanted one for my a6500 but with the kit lens and a microphone attached, it was pushing the max payload. This causes the gimbal to micro-shake a bit which is pretty visible in my opinion.

gah, got mine for $349 -$40 coupon.. this is is great deal.

I got this for my Eos M + kit lens and it works great. It has many quality of life improvements over the original M. Packs down pretty small and has locks which are much appreciated.

Other than that I haven't had much time to use it, but for small mirrorless cameras this works great. There are a few youtube reviews for this out there.

Considering just the size reduction this is already way better than the original Crane M.
The convenience of the position retention levers takes it up another level too.

Wish this was around a few years ago but I have made darn good use of the older model.
I got the micro-stutter with just a compact camera so I hope they have improved the motor strength.

They did provide a few firmware updates that helped a little, though you have to run the release notes through Google translate to understand what they did.
Seems they've stopped developing it after about a year so you can expect it to be about the same on this as well.

I know people mainly buy this for video, but does this help with stills/photography as well?

Seems like an expensive and overly cumbersome device for stills.
I suppose you can use it to track the sky and move accordingly for long exposures if the software supported it.
Or use a phone app to move the gimbal to frame a shot. Most times it's easier to just frame it first then shoot.

For straight photogs just monopod or tripod is your bet. Rule of thumb is to have a shutter speed equal or greater than your focal length. Reason being is that small movements are exaggerated the further out you go: "If I had a long enough lever I could move the Earth" ~ Archimedes

For long sky track exposures one might run into a battery depletion issue...and overkill regardless since the device is being pressed into a service it's not intended for.

Glad I could help! I really wished the gimbal was able to support just a bit more. Ideally something like a6500+microphone+sigma 30mm f1.4. The form factor with this gimbal is a game changer

I was hoping to use this not only for videos, but as a tabletop tripod. I’m planning to use this with the Sony RX100 VII.
