An electronic gimbal does away with finicky and delicate mechanical moving parts. That means less wear and tear from dust, dirt, or an occasional rough landing.

In addition, electronic gimbals can better keep the subject squarely in the camera’s frame. That’s because mechanical gimbals suffer from inertia and g-forces every time the drone changes speed, direction or altitude. 

Electronic gimbals have little problem keeping the camera centered in changing flight conditions. That means better video and photos.
