    There is only the matter of the Zhiyun HDMI image transmission which obviously won't be available but....

    Will Red release some kind of wireless TX to mount on the pogo pins so we can monitor wirelessly on phones ? If there is power on the pogo of course.
    or maybe it's already inside the body ?

    Overkill for Komodo but does anyone here have experience with the Movcam Helm gimbal? I have been waiting its release, but starting to wonder if it is still coming out. I have heard a few rental houses across the country have them.

    Yes, that’s the crux of it. Are there ANY options that fit the price point of the more budget friendly options mentioned in here, that also use Y axis stabilization?

    I just saw 1917 and the ability to go from fast moving stable shots to a close-up slowly moving around an actor is the magic that uphold the illusion. Whenever I see that Y-axis wobble on gimbal shots I’m immediately thrown out of such scenes.

    Perhaps the Tiffen Steadicam Steadimate- S in conjunction with the Ronin S..?

    Someone stated that the way to use those gimbals is never to hold them straight up. By leaning the handle you get better stabilization in y.

    I used a Helix for a while, before Letus developed the smaller and lighter versions. It's a well designed gimbal, and has better ergonomics than most gimbals. I haven't had a chance to try out the Webill line which looks like it has better ergonomics than most also.

    I think gimbals are great. But one should definitely learn how to do hand held too.

    Here's the answer to the fourth axis problem, which feels neat.

    Letus Helix Magnesium: I couldn't be happier. It's very organic and I've even used it with my Red Epic-X
