Home-made gimbal head
Sep 6, 2003

David Brewer, a newer forum member, has "imagineered" a very economical gimbal-type tripod head. This is very similar to the $150 Bogen I purchased recently, and MUCH cheaper than the pro-quality version made by Wimberly (which is WAY over built for us bazooka shooters, BTW).
He has informed me that it cost him a total of $22 in parts.

I've posted a few pics of the completed "DB Gimbal" at the following link. All Dave asks for is feedback from anyone else who decides to give it a go.
