First wedding with Slow Motion and 3 Axis Gimbal.
 

We'll be replacing "All of me" later today or tomorrow. Mix up with TMB.

Some nice shots there!

Any issues with using the gimbal under wedding conditions?

The one I have is the Letus Helix and we swapped out a mount. The Helix requires calibration and because the swap occurred this made the shot extremely shaky therefore calibration is truly paramount.

Other than that I really like using it on the wedding.

I had my eye on the Helix. Couldn't justify the cost of it though. Completely envious!

Some things I was curious about (sorry for the barrage of questions):

Was it a hassle to carry around?
Was it a hassle/time-consuming to set up?
Did it "scare the horses"? Were guests unnerved when you put that thing in their faces?
How long could you use it before getting tired?

Here's my thoughts on the gimbal overall

The biggest hassle is having a case to put it in after.
The cool thing is that the set up I have allows me to mount it directly on top of a tripod. I walk and then I set it down on the tripod. With a tablet or phone, the gimbal becomes a motorized head on the tripod.

My brother is extremely fast and he sets it up. Usually 3-5 minutes with a bmcc and a lot of other things (display mount is IMPORTANT). With the FS700 it takes about 1 minute or under every time.

Guests are quite curious and they've come up to ask for our contact info because as they say "you guys look professional and that looks amazing".

The setup I have is about 15lbs so about 3-5 minutes depending on how I hold it.
