Gim­bal head

NPhoto - - Over To You -

El­liott says… A gim­bal head, when shoot­ing with big tele­photo lenses like the Nikon AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR, is es­sen­tial. I’ve seen pho­tog­ra­phers try to shoot with these lenses on ball heads and it’s a night­mare. The ball head just isn’t strong enough to hold all that weight above the tri­pod, and it sags. Gim­bal heads are great at tak­ing the weight, and al­low you to move the lens around with min­i­mal ef­fort.
