What gimbal to buy for BMPCC

Im looking for a lightweight, lightly transportable gimbal for black magic pocket cinema camera on a low budget if possible.
Any suggestions ?

DJI Ronin M hands down. Easy to set up, calibrate and use. Wouldn't reccomend any other gimbal...

it's so light any gimbal is fine, i've use it with the nebula4000 and it worked great, you can go with any cheap one based on basecam and simple bgi. The beholder ms1 is cheap and good, the ds1 is even better. I've hear good thing about the viigim 504.

If you want a really low profile, the Beholder DS-1 is a great pistol grip one that can carry the weight of the bmpcc and Tokina 11-16 combo. Great for gimbal stuff.

I strongly agree with Ben that the Beholder gimbals are great for the smaller BMPCC cameras. They're lightweight, easy to throw in a bag and great in a pinch. The Beholder EC-1 is the newer one, and is much easier to balance in a pinch. AND you can use the handy Manfrotto 501PL adapter plates! With this mounting option, I can go back and forth from my Manfrotto fluid head tripod to my monopod and back to my gimbal in record time.
