Well I scored a fantastic eBay deal on an Induro CT314 with both the long and short center column, and now I need a mount for it.
I'd really like to have a gimbal for birding and wildlife, but I also really enjoy macro. So I've been looking at a 3 series BHL or BHD ballhead and a GHBA gimbal. I figure this will give me the best of both worlds without the added cost of a dedicated gimbal.
I've read a few reviews that speak quite favorably of the GHBA but when you find referral links in the review, you need to be a little skeptical of its accuracy I think.
So I'm hoping someone here will have some experience with either of the ballheads and or the gimbal attachment. At this time I'm leaning towards the lower cost BHD head if it makes a difference.
For the near future I'd be using the mount to hold a gripped 7D with a 70-200 + 2x teleconverter. I'm looking at a longer lens sometime soon, maybe an EF 400 or if possible the new Sigma (or ever the older OS), 120-300 S.
Thanks for any help.
