The honest answer is that we dont know the upper limit. But big gimbals with DSLRs have been shown based on this technology and they look to be working just fine.
If the camera is balanced out, the motors only have to overcome inertia, so it would be my guess that up to 1kg cams should be well within reasonable limits.
We are working on a DSLR and Camcorder version. I am gonna try to make it swing a Nikon D300, which is about a kilo with a short lens.
