RRS PG02 Gimbal vs Wimberley II Gimbal
Jul 3, 2012

Has anyone had experience using both? I have the Wimberley, but must admit that I am very underwhelmed with it. Supports the 600mm OK but still feels like there is vibration when locked down. Seems as if there is a bit of lateral play in the tilt portion and locking mechanism. Is this normal? I use the Wimberley on a RRS TV-34L, which is rock solid.

Is the RRS dramatically better? It just seems larger and more of a pain to transport. Also, is it safe to carry it assembled or does it require assembly in the field (not what I want to be dealing with when photographing wildlife in a swamp).

Thanks.
