Best stabilizer for a Canon 750D & Sigma 18-35mm combination?

Hello everyone,

 

I recently purchased a Canon 750D which I use to film short films. I'm relatively new to the world of DSLR's and noticed that my camera was very shaky, to the point where some footage is almost unusable despite the fact I used a shoulder rig.

 

I looked into getting a gimbal after seeing how effective my friends one was, but even though my camera and lens combination was in the weight limit, I couldn't get the gimbal to balance and had to send it back. I think I couldn't balance it because my lens was weighed more than my camera.

 

My camera weighs 604g and my lens of choice (a Sigma 18-35mm) weighs 842g. I spent more than £600 on that lens recently and love the look of it, so I don't really want to change it. Does anyone know a combination that would work with my Canon 750D and Sigma lens? I was looking at a Zhiyun Crane 3-Axis Gimbal but am hesitant about spending so much money in case I can't get a refund.

 

Also, can someone tell me if I need a gimbal, could a steadicam or glidecam act as a cheaper alternative? All I'm really looking for is a perfectly smooth image, I'd rather have something portable and handheld too.

 

Thank you!
