You have very nice bird photos. How do you find the use of Gimbal? Isn't it cumbersome at all and why did you decide on this choice as opposed to others?
Thank you Sys......The Knobs on the wimberly gimbal are easy to adjust and lock tight, it has a large range of motion in all directions, it feels very sturdy and strong yet smooth action in movement. It is well engineered. It works superbly when panning and balances my kit perfectly (500/f4 & 1d4 with 1.4TC). I find it very precise and compared to the benro and unbranded one I use to have it's miles ahead. You get what you pay for. Most of all I have confidence in it. The knobs will not loosen themselves at all and it allows me to take photo's at very low speeds.
In combination by using a good stance and technique by pressing your forehead into the camera and legs as if they are part of a tripod and at times my left arm on top of the lens this method for me is unbeatable. I am able to be on the move quickly and very mobile.
