Gimbal recommendation?

I’m hoping someone here can help. I am using GoPro Hero4 with the sennheiser mke2 and am looking for a gimbal that would support the balance with the mic on as well as the added depth.
I own a Lamparte gimbal but it doesn’t work with the sennheiser mke2.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks

Hi @loyalhero487,

 

Most gimbals won't support the camera with Mic attached but there might be some gimbals that will allow you to just needs a little modification such as this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK5rv1jCjsk

Re: Gimbal recommendation?

The issue with this mic is it attached directly to the GoPro with a casing so I can't hook it on the side of a gimbal like he does in this video. I'm wondering if there is a DSLR gimbal that would work to support the weight. It's not that heavy, just off balance.
