Gimbal heads and quick release systems. 26 Apr 2019 19:09 #5854

Still on the subject of tripods, can anyone recommend a Gimbal Head? Needs to support a bit of weight (150-600+camera). Or, conversely, recommend one to avoid?

Secondly, can anyone recommend a Quick Release Plate and Clamp for a tripod head? NOT for quick release of a body from a tripod, for release of a tripod head from the tripod. I saw a Youtube vid of a guy called Steve Perry showing how this works – he was demonstrating with a Really Right Stuff system and it was fairly expensive so I was wondering if there were any competing manufacturers.
thanks for any help

Decision made. I purchased a Lensmaster from a chappy in the UK. Saw it highly recommended in my online photo group so I chatted with the man yesterday and bought one this morning.

Still need to find a quick release plate that is not the price of the Really Right Stuff item(s) so I will keep looking.

do you know what this quick release plate looks like and approximate sizes?
Could possibly look at engineering one for you with custom mods if required, I have made my own "L brackets" and arca style plates previously
