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.

Motorized gimbals are far less sensitive to minor balance issues than balance-based gimbals, and they aren't affected by breezes or dynamic balance issues.  The difference in ease of use is like night and day, IMHO.
