Field Test ;
We pared the gimbal head with Kenro’s heavy duty tripod ( KENTR501C ) and headed to Bushy Park for a day photographing the annual stag rut. First impressions of the gimbal head , well packed great looking product an easy to assemble. It was easy to attract to the lens , the locks work well and it has a smooth action . Once you find the centre of gravity for you lens the whole head works perfectly. The head provides a stable platform for your longer length lens reducing camera shake and can also be locked in position. Overall a fab piece of kit and value for money as well.
