Vibrations you have to sort out yourself by isolating the gimbal using some form of vibration dampeners. After that, what separates a good gimbal from a bad gimbal usually comes down to the quality of the servos used more than anything else. Servos with poor resolution and slow response times will produce bad results no matter how good the design of the gimbal is. for example, the very best gimbals are using direct drive brushless motors that cost several hundred dollars each.

I've been following the progress of the ECILOP stabilization system and that definitely seems to be a better way forward and I wouldn't be surprised if we see a load of new designs using the same principle flooding the market in the next few months. There's already 2 other frames that I know of that use the same system and no doubt many more that I don't.
