    Sure, I have it

    A review of the gimbal:

    As expected, the weight and form factor are an issue.

    I might just end up getting it to use with my 5D4...

    Couple that with the nucleus-m and a couple of small rig rod clamps and its rolling you can power the nucleus with the g2x.

Guess it depends on what style you shoot but I always get producers who want to shoot 15 minute walk and talks with talent or long character POVs that go forever. As far as Tilta, I would think the quality would be decent as their camera accessories are good but I wouldn't buy one unless I could actually try it with a C200 on-board. Tilta and electronics, I don't know. Once you introduce electronics, it becomes a whole different ball game. Hopefully as easy to setup and use as the Zhiyun stuff? If it uses Simple BGC, run the other way, that software is a nightmare.
    Is there a way to attach a Merlin vest to a stabilizer like this? I'm thinking of getting rid of my Letus Helix Hr and going to this for the versatility as well.

    I'm almost certain I saw an attachment from Tilta that matches the handle of the G2x, that the will go on an arm, but maybe it only goes with the Armor Man system...

    Just picked one up. Currently experiencing the annoyance of not being able to connect to the gimbal because the app only works on iOS. Which I don't have.
    You'd think that'd be more prominently explained to potential users. No PC app, no Android app (alpha, with no G2X connection).
    No other way of connecting to the gimbal that I can see. Strike 1.

    Strike 2: Didn't need a lens support with the GH5 and Zhiyun Crane v2, but I do need one with this bad boy.

    I've got another long list of minor annoyances but I'll wait until I've had a real chance to play with it before posting anything.

    I'm expecting it to work better once I get access to the app somehow.

    Picked it up to tide me over until Ronin-S. But I might just return it since I don't have any iOS access right now and no one I know has an extra iphone. Sigh. Useless.
