Re: Gimbal compatibility for X-T3

Great to see that there are a good few gimbals that can be considered.

A further aspect that I’m keen to understand is what capability is there for using the zoom on any of these gimbals? I’m obviously only considering short range zooms for lenses that are indicated as compatible e.g. 18-55.

I understand that balancing the lens midway can provide some scope for using the zoom.

Is it practical from a filming sense to do some smooth zoom adjustments with one hand while holding the gimbal with the other?

Or does anyone connect the focus servo motor that the Ronin SC has to control zoom with the focus wheel, and does this work smoothly enough without being a huge hassle to setup each time?

I feel tempted to consider Sony with its 18-105 power zoom that integrates so well with the Ronin gimbals, but then feel like I’m passing up so much that the XT3 has to offer in other areas.

Thanks
