Previously, I recommended the Feiyu-Tech A1000 as the gimbal to buy if you shoot with a smaller mirrorless set-up. Unfortunately since then, it’s been discontinued and no longer in production. Even B&H no longer stocks it. Fortunately Zhiyun has released a gimbal that’s simply incredible with their new Weebill Lab Gimbal.
More and more people are moving over to smaller mirrorless set-ups and companies like Zhiyun have started making gimbals specifically for this market. Having a smaller lighter system can be extremely convenient and it’s how I prefer to shoot in most situations. The Weebill Lab, although imperfect, is in my mind the best gimbal that’s currently available to buy. The compact size means that it can be comfortably carried even in smaller messenger bags with something like the Sony a7R III and a couple of lenses. This is extremely useful because if you’re a run and gun shooter you’re not being held back by huge and heavy equipment.
The Weebill Lab isn’t designed for larger lenses so the major drawback is that if you shoot with something like the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens then this may not be the gimbal for you. Instead, if you’re like me and you’re happier with a small lens like the FE 28mm f/2.0, then this might just be the perfect choice for you.
