Re: mechanical stablizer that allows gimbal calibration?

For clarification, you still manually balance a motorized gimbal prior to engaging the motors, so you're in the same boat as a steadicam style stabilizer, the only difference is that Steadicam style stabilizers need tweaking from time to time, but that takes under a minute if you know what you're doing. Once you've attained the initial setup of static and dynamic balance with a steadicam, you won't need to change anything beyond minor tweaks, unless you change cameras or lenses, but the same goes for motorized gimbals.
