My interest is backyard bird photography. With my Canon 7d and 100-400 mm lense, I wanted a head that would allow unrestricted movement without any weight. Moving up from a cheap pan-tilt tripod to an Induro tripod and gimbal head was amazing! I'm no longer worried about dropping the camera.
I recently took the GHB2 (attached to an Induro carbon fiber tripod) out for the first time to shoot swans along the Mississippi river. My D810 and Sigma 150-600 sport attached quickly and securely via the Arca plate and clamp and the entire system provided rock-solid stability on uneven ground.
bought this gimbal head b/c I have Induro tripod. used it for bird photos in Bosque del Apache, with Canon 6d and 5diii mated to sigma 150-600, Canon 100-400 w/ and w/o 1.4x tc. also used it on Sirui T-2005X tripod.
I have used a rented Wimberly in the past. I liked it, but looking at the price difference and after reading other reviews I figured I would try the Induro. It's heavy, of course, because it is a solid, well built support platform, but so is the Wimberly.
This replaces the stolen Wimberly. A little cheaper and a little heavier. I have a Gitzo tripod and an Induro Tripod. Induro works great. The Gimbal head seems to be as good. Long term will tell the build. I would give another star if it were lighter and cheaper yet.
After unsuccessfully trying to photograph sunspots and in preparation for a trip to photograph eagles, I started looking for a Gimbal head that would work with my SLIK 700DX tripod legs and support a Nikon D5300 with a Sigma 1.4 teleconverter and a 150-500 telephoto Sigma zoom lens.
Solid, sturdy, but yet so smooth.
PHOTOGRAPHING WILDLIFE IS VERY DIFFICULT. BIRDS MOVE QUICKLY AND IRRACTICALLY.THE INDURO GHB2 IS SMOOTH, EASY TO USE AND VERY STABLE.I HAVE NOT YET FOUND ANY NEGATIVES WITH ITS PERFORMANCE
After much research and listening to birders in my area on best tripod head for wildlife photography I went withthe Gimbal GHB2 and have not been disappointed.
This is nice for longer lenses and landscapes. Just wish I could pan.
