Lots of support plus flexibility of movement
If you want to shoot wildlife or sport a gimbal tripod head is extremely useful, providing support while still enabling real freedom of movement. Nest’s NT-530H provides this movement in both horizontal and vertical planes, which can be locked in or out as needed. The black carbon fibre finish looks great, and the pivots all prove smooth, although there is no real friction control. The carbon finish gives this head a premium look and feel (as does the price), but it really is just a simple yet effective gimbal head.
