I bought this to install on my monopod. Works Amazing !
The Movo Gimbal Graphite Head I ordered came quick and I am very pleased with the functionality of the head and the size of the knobs for adjustment.
Arrived fast and was exactly what I was looking for with some of the longer lenses.
I purchased one of these gimbal heads approximately two years ago and have been extremely satisfied with the product. I recently went into the mountains in Utah and unfortunately the UTV 4-wheeler broken-down. I was forced to jettison some of the gear so I could complete the 3+ mile hike through deep snow before dark set in. I was unable to retrieve the gimbal head and tripod before leaving the state. Hopefully, I will one day be back in the area to retrieve the abandoned items. But, the return date is unknown. In the interim period, I am buying replacement items. Question: After having received such good service with the first gimbal head, why would I want to go with another brand? I go with proven products and service.
We have a lot of birds in Colorado, especially active in Feb and March. A couple weeks ago, I found myself at the side of a road with 8 eagles in a tree a couple hundred yards away. I had my camera and lens mounted on a pan head that was proving to a little tricky to keep on target. Next to me another shooter with a gimbal head, an EXPENSIVE outside my budget gimbal head!! Later, at home, I decided it was time to find one that suited my needs without laying out a king's ransom. After the usual searches via google and other online blogs, forums, etc, I narrowed my search to a number of heads in the $100-$200 range that had received favorable reviews. Soon I was down to two, the Movo carbon and another. However, the "other" was reported to need a disassembly to remove a lubricant that almost prevented simple maneuvering. I soon found myself on the Movo website looking at what would be my choice, the GH800. Three or four days later, it arrived and I immediately mounted the head on my tripod. My DSLR and 150-600 lens were soon mounted. I was pleased to see how easy it was to balance the camera in order to achieve minimal motion when I took my hands off. All the while, the head was smooth/fluid in both directions. I was more than pleased and look forward to putting it to the real test, BIF at a local lake. I can't see any reason why I won't be a totally satisfied customer. Highly recommended.
It was priced right and arrived quickly. The build quality appears to be very good. It sets up quickly and easily, adjusts to different camera bodies and lenses and functions very smoothly. It’s not much heavier then my ballhead.
So far I’m very pleased with the purchase.
I can't provide a review at this time because my order is a Christmas present and he has not opened it yet.
Just received and have not yet proved it outside but seems to work smooth and easy to use.
