Re: Opteka GH1 Gimbal Head.

I dunno, think I'd file that one under "you get what you paid for." If you're going to trust your biggest and probably most expensive lens to a head, buy the good stuff. The Wimberly supports five times the weight of this thing. Better to have the load capacity, and not need it, than to need it, and not have it (which could be catastrophic).

Hi folks,

I doubt that this is the same quality as a Wimberly or Induro Gimbal but it looks to me that it might be good for a Sigma 50-500mm, a 400mm f5.6, or even a 300mm f2.8 lens.
