Manfrotto has now entered the gimbal stabilizer market with two new models and several intriguing add-on accessories.

The Manfrotto MVG220 Gimbal is the lighter of the two new models and can support up to a 2.2kg payload, making it ideal for smaller mirrorless cameras and lightweight APS-C DSLRs. It features a detachable secondary arm that means you can easily switch from an upright single handle stance to an underslung, low-angle position to vary your shooting style.
