    Dear Josh,
    I am looking for a gimbal for the Canon Powershot SX70HS. I have found that no Zhiyun or Ronin gimbal is compatible with my camera, even though they tend to say ‘compatible with mirrorless cameras’. Can you give me any suggestions?

    1. Josh Kruger says

      Your going to be looking for a gimbal that can be generically supported. Essentially you will not be able to operate the camera via gimbals controls (such as focus). So gimbals such as the Ronin or Zhiyun may work as long as the weight of the camera is supported.
