Yes it's sculptures and some are under very diverse lighting conditions that require a very steady camera. Even at 2.8 or 1.8 which is my fastest lens any movement will cause blur as I need such fine detail.  Shooting at 1/25 to capture something at dawn or dusk in not uncommon to keep noise low.  If the ISO goes over 640 for me the detail in not what I'm seeking. Even 400 at times for a 8X10 print is hard to mask in Photoshop or Lightroom.

I fully understand. Especially in crowded locations where you may need to visit befre the great unwashed arrive to ruin your shots.

To your other question regarding which head from manfrotto I was referring to this one (not a true gimbal but does the same job) - http://www.manfrotto.co.uk/long-lens-monopod-bracket . When fitted to a good tripod it is rock solid especially in the wind where I used it for windsurfing shots. I've since replaced it for a Wimberly gimbal gead which is easier to track moving subjects with but not quite as solid when locked down.
