Zenmuse Z-15 Question

I'm purchasing a DJI S800, which has the Z-15 gimbal on it. I know it supports the Sony NEX5/7 and Panasonic GH2. I'm deciding which camera I'm going to use. I do both photos and video (about 50/50). I've also been told the Sony A6000 is a better alternative and it seems like it may be supported with this gimbal but I can't figure out if it truly is or if I've got to do something else to the gimbal to make it support the A6000.

First question is, which camera do you all recommend? The NEX 7 is a bit more expensive and I'm already stretching the budget to get this thing so I'm sort of leaning towards the NEX 5, GH2 or the A6000 (if it's supported).

Second question is whether this gimbal truly does support the A6000 and if I've got to do anything extra to make it work.

Thanks.

All Zenmuse are camera specific. You can get one for the NEX but it wont haul a GH2. You can get one for a GH4 but it wont work with a GH2.

So, what ever gimbal is on the 800 is the camera you need to buy

But, I wouldnt buy the 800 with the Nex gimbal. Its already way outdated. And, 800's do have a lot of vibe issues.

If you can save a little more and get the S-900 with the GH4 gimbal . Then buy a used GH3.

Troybuiltmodels will finance for you if you dont want to wait
