Looking for Gimbal and Stabilized Lense to compensate for lack of IBIS in EOS M

Hi lovely community,

I am always impressed by the quality my Canon Eos M gives me with Magic Lantern, I myself find my footage to have too much shakiness and would love to solve the shakines by compensating not having internal stabilization with some gimbal and lens with stabilitzation ... I have been using a TTArtisans which has spectacular feel but does not have stabilization.

I would love to know your thoughts and experiences about this.

lense: canon canon ef-m 15-45mm f3.5-6.3 is stm
(is there any economic sense that you would recommend?
Do you know if this one is any good?)

gimbal: here I have a bit of doubts and I am between a small gimbal or a medium gimbal,
1. DJI Ronin SC. This I pretty old gimbal, with already 4 years but is a medium size gimbal and I don't know if that is supposed to give a more smooth experience.

2. Feiyu SCORP-Mini-2: this is a small size gimbal but I don't know if will be enough to compensate the lack of internal stabilitzationof the camera body (IBIS)...

How is your experience with the EOS M regarding this topic? How do you try to make your footage smooth?


That lens is good. Super sharp. But it won't be as cinematic with all the cool bokeh effects at such a high aperture.

I've only used the DJI Ronin SC. It's not old in the least bit honestly. It's fantastic and can support the weight of a bigger camera in case you want to upgrade or use a lot of accessories. You also won't need to worry about IS on the lens if you use this gimbal. It's super smooth

I've been using the old Zhiyun Crane M2, a super small and light weight gimbal that is more than enough for the also small EOS M with a "normal" lens.
It works very well, but I have another technique that works very well and requires just the neck strap:
Hang the camera from your neck, hold it but not lift it, pushing it slightly down to keep the strap in tension. The closer to your body, the more stable it will be. From this position and with the strap in tension, maneuver the camera rotating or tilting as needed. You can adjust the strap length and the only downside is that you'll need an external monitor to properly frame the scene because the EOS M lacks a tilting screen.
The principle is similar as using a Cine Saddle:
