The Katana looks more like a piece of mil­i­tary hard­ware than a cam­era sup­port, thanks to its macho de­sign and huge 33cm height. A load ca­pac­ity of ‘just’ 23 kilo­grams isn’t es­pe­cially im­pres­sive, but su­perb build and ma­te­rial qual­ity give the im­pres­sion it could hold more. How­ever, at 2.2 kilo­grams, this is the heav­i­est gim­bal in our group.

The top-notch build qual­ity also ex­tends to the tilt and pan­ning mo­tion, which is per­fectly smooth and has no bear­ing slack when the lock­ing knobs are un­done. When tight­ened, these will hold your Nikon steady, and are large enough for easy use in all weath­ers, plus they can be repo­si­tioned for eas­ier ac­cess. The fact that’s it’s so tall also means there’s plenty of ver­ti­cal ad­just­ment to per­fectly bal­ance even the largest lens.

Ex­tremely large and sturdy, this is one for well-equipped pros
