I like the set-up with the Manfrotto gimbal mount.

It suspends the 600 from it's foot, and provides an almost weightless feel to the lens in this configuration.

The lens can be panned very smoothly, and low shutter speed captures are easier to take.

In this configuration you don't need any additional lens support - keeping the set-up simple and quick to set-up.

A few sample image captures using the 600 and this rig - tracking aircraft targets
