What stepper motor should I buy? Answered

I am new to stepper motors and didn't have one. Just need to make sure that I will buy the correct stepper. My project is about DSLR camera pan + tilt and for slider, so it will be 3 steppers. Maybe can carry 1.5kg - 2kg

I already have the following:

Battery: Laptop powerbank USB1:5V/2.1A USB2: QC2.0 port 5V/2A 9V/2A 12V/ 2A

Driver: Adafruit Motor Shield V2 for Arduino

Arduino: DFRduino UNO R3

And some 1:40 reduction gears from past project

About the stepper I'm planning to order in Bangood.com and here is my choices:

Please let me know what should be best for my project. I'm not expert in steppers. If you have any suggestions that would be great.

Thank you!

A little late to this party, but I think the NEMA17 motors should do just fine.
