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.
It seems a bit heavy on top of my carbon tripod, but works extremely well and smooth. It will be a MUST every time I decide to chase birds, which can be quite often. At my age the 100-400 lens without using a tripod has become too much for my shoulder.
Extremely well made gimbal, will take the heavy load of a DSLR with a long lens and makes it feel buttery smooth when panning or tilting. The control knobs can be adjusted for tightness of movement, and it's beautiful to work with.
I spent hours looking at all the different model and read every review on each. The GHB2 seemed to be the one to get. I'm happy to report that it was an excellent choice. I've had it out twice with my 1DX and a Sigma 150-600C and it is solid and smooth.
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.
Just wanted to provide an update to those who are actually considering this gimbal head.As I've mentioned in a previous review, I've been using this gimbal head along with the Induro Carbon 8X CT314 tripod for quite a while now.
I've been using the GHB2 gimbal head with the Induro 8X CT-314 tripod for over a year now with no issues. I've taken it into rushing rivers, 1-2foot deep snow, lugged it over my shoulder thousands of times while hiking around marshes, beaches, forests, parks and mountains.
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.
Outstanding piece of photographic equipment. It is easily every bit as good, if not better, than the equivalent Wimberely head. I would definitely recommend it to anyone seriously interested in purchasing a Gimbal Head for supporting their longer lenses.
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.
