    Re: gimbal heads - so many - such a price range

    i have a cheap gimbal but have been very happy with it since I do not use it much,

    This is the same way I sue mine

    "I use it on my monopod (almost exclusively). But always still keep the strap attached and around my neck, lose my grip on the monopod and the camera will not hit the ground (I might get whiplash but the camera and lens will be fine). "

    Liz and I have both been using the Neewer aluminum Gimble Head for several months now and are very happy with them. Mine supports the D550 and 200-500 without any problems, is very smooth and solid. No wobbles or shakes. When I bought the first one I followed the advice I found on Youtube and dis-assembled it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OynWP24CSqU&t=951s. I then removed ALL the sticky factory "lubricant" and replaced it with a light grease. It spins without effort and when setup properly the camera retains any position I put it in horizontally and/or vertically. They are definitly worth the price. https://www.amazon.ca/Neewer-Panoram...=neewer+gimbal.

    Re: gimbal heads - so many - such a price range

    One thing I would like to fit to the Neewer Gimble is the RRS quick release clamp (Cradle Clamp for PG-02 Pano-Gimbal Head) but I don't know if it would fit. I have asked RRS but they are not very helpful.

    If anyone has a Wimberly and would be prepared to make some measurements I can compare them to the Neewer. The clamp is too expensive (more than the gimble head) to take a gamble.
