Gimbal are more for support long heavy zoom like 300mm 2.8, 400mm 2.8 and above where you cannot handheld it to shoot for half a day to full day. You can try them out either in Cathay or Orient Photo.

Gimbal is for easy movement , pan and balance of the longer telephoto lenses
For usual lenses a smaller ball head gets things done faster and easier.

I dun have a full Gimbal but i got a sidekick attachment.

Wimberley and Kirk are examples of Gimbal manufacturers.
