My 200-600mm just arrived, and I’m having difficulty holding it steady.

looking at Amazon for gimbals and the prices are all over the place. I don’t mind spending more if I can see the difference in every day use, but I’m not trying to impress anyone with a brand name. I’m an Old guy so I just want dependable use for a few years. No need in having my gear out live me.

Comments and suggestions are welcome, thanks

Iam in your place and while I have a Gimbal/Tripod and a Monopod I still resist using them much.

I got the Gimbal a number of years ago now and it's been good enough. It's a Beike and I paid like $70 for it.
