Searching for quality Gimbal for EOS Rebel SL3

I'll eventually upgrade to the mark iii or something else that's more compatible, but right now this is what I'm working with.

Most of the quality gimbals I'm finding don't list my specific camera as compatible with their software.

Does anyone know of a good gimbal that'll work?

I know it's a super specific request, fingers crossed someone else has figured this out.

Why would a gimbal need software? It is just a fancy tripod mount.

This sounds like a familiar issue.  They are probably looking for a hand-held gimbal rig for shooting video.

I believe you are right, but we need clarification from the OP.

 

OP:

What you probably need to do is to choose a few systems you like and contact the mfg's as to compatibility with the camera. You can also rent some from Lens Rentals to check it out in your situation.

Ah ha, you guys may have something.  But aren't those called gimbal stabilizers or just stabilizers?  I don't know.

Yeah it's for shooting video, the higher end gimbals like Zhiyun and Ronin work for any DSLR camera (I think) as a basic stabilizer, but they also have software that can connect to your camera via bluetooth (if your camera is compatible), so you can control camera movements, zoom, etc from the app which helps a ton with trying to get some specific tricky shots

I have two gimbals.  I will guess gimbal manufacturers try to make sure their tripod heads, gimbals are heads, work with as many different camera models as possible. I would be surprised if any and all would not work with a SL3.  I have not personally tried but it should be compatible with any maker.

I got not software with either of my gimbal heads.
