How about an integrated DJI Osmo gimbal with a large sensor (S35 / Fullframe?), an interchangeable mount for full-frame lenses and a high-quality autofocus? Canon recently filed a patent to this effect. We can&t tell at first glance how big the sensor would actually be, but should Canon want to use its new RF lenses, we would assume at least an S35 / APS-C sensor.
In contrast to one-handed gimbals, where the camera is mounted separately, there are clear weight advantages with an integrated shooting solution and high-quality audio options are also likely to be easier to implement with an integrated gimbal.
"Cameras come and go - lenses stay" - on this basis, a corresponding integrated Canon gimbal could make perfect sense - after all, it would expand the field of application of corresponding Canon lenses. Pros, however, would need at least a 10 bit log recording. With a standardised Canon log on board, at least an unproblematic matching to other Canon EOS camera would be ensured.
Finally, there is the question of price - how expensive should an appropriate gimbal system that works exclusively with the lenses of one manufacturer be?
Even if the integrated Canon gimbal does not make it to a final product:
The patent is evidence of Canon&s new dynamism and the will to think out-of-the-box - and we like that. Because if you don&t want to leave the moving image market to the smartphones without a fight, products that convince with a significantly better image quality or give existing equipment such as full-frame lenses further options for use could be a starting point ...
