a7c with "movie add-on" stabilization quite nice

I happened to try out sony's new add-in for Imaging edge: the

Movie Edit add-on

It really does seem to add a gimbal like quality. by virtue of the fact that this model has additional internal gyros, that other models do not.

(Only current models that have these things:
DSC-RX0M2/DSC-RX100M7/ZV-1/ILCE-7C )

"But you can add stabilization in post with software!"

Yeah... but... gimbals (and this thing) have a more natural movement to the frame, it seems to me.

The one annoying thing to me is that this is ONLY a mobile app. There is no desktop version.

I pondered why.
Perhaps the justification is that, due to loss of pixels, people doing desktop work would be unhappy that their 4k footage isnt 4k any more.

But to me that is not good enough. I would far prefer to edit on desktop rather than on my phone, even if it is to a "trivial" destination such as social media, etc.
