- GH800 Carbon Fiber Gimbal Head (Supports 33 lbs.)
- Aluminum Arca-Swiss Quick Release Plate
- 1-Year Warranty
The Movo GH800 Gimbal Head can hold up cameras weighing over 30 lbs, making it perfect for any photography using large telephoto lenses. Separate locks control the 360° panning base and swinging arm, allowing a full range of motion ideal for covering sporting events, catching birds in flight, or any other fast-moving subjects.
The "gravity-balanced" gimbal head makes even the bulkiest camera and lens combos seem almost weightless. The Arca-Swiss-compatible quick-release plate (included) is 120 mm long, providing ample support of most telephoto lenses. For extreme telephoto lenses, longer base plates can be easily substituted.
Large, lobed knobs are easy to operate even through gloves or in dark conditions, and numbered scales along the panning base and the vertical arm allow you to easily repeat your setup for various lens and camera combinations. The panning base and vertical arm capable of 360-degree rotation (horizontal and vertical). Additionally, the lens platform can be adjusted up or down by 4" to better accommodate different camera setups.

Hello! I recieved my Gimbal in excellent condition. I was very impressed with the build quality, and maneuverability of the components. No negative issues to share. Thank you!
Was looking for an alternative to the expensive Wimberley WH-200. The GH800 is 1/3 the price and 12% lighter. While it doesn’t have the weight capacity of the WH-200, it’s capacity of 33 lbs is more than enough for my 7 lb Canon EF 500mm f/4 L IS II USM prime. This mount is a great complement to my carbon fiber tripod.
I've researched quite a bit before buying this Gimbal GH800. Read where anything but $500-$600 Gibals were the only way to go and that the cheaper ones weren't as smooth, many downright bad. But, I didn't want to spend that kind of money, read good reviews on MOVO products, so I got this one for $180 after discounts. I'm sure glad I did, tried this out the past four days and it's Silk Smooth, AND looks extremely well built. Very happy with this Gimbal. Now to go out and shoot what I "really" bought this for, Birds In Flight.
Seems pretty sturdy. I am concerned at how easily the plate screw falls out and worry about losing it when it's not attached to a camera.
While probably not the traditional use for a gimbal head, I bought this to give it a try (in place of a ball head) while shooting youth soccer matches. I have it mounted on my monopod and love the smoothness of it. It's well built and easy to use. I also like the fact that I can let go of the camera (7D Mk II and 100-400 lens) without having to tighten anything and the camera stays put.
Excellent construction...simple fast reaction...great value!
I am pleased with the product so far. I have used it a time or too and am working on perfecting the balance so that my camera is most maneuverable.
Unlike the two earlier gimbal heads I have, this one is much smoother in terms of its ability to turn horizontally and vertically. It has performed well so far.
I like the weight of the gimbal due to the carbon fiber construction.
I would recommend this gimbal head without hesitation.
I recently bought the Movo GH800 and i was not disappointed at all, based on my 3 days outing so far it is smooth and durable , very competitive price and i believe it is worth money.
I purchased this gimbal for a trip to Panama, during which I hope to photograph some exotic birds. I am not a "birder" but a gimbal was recommended for this trip. It is now mounted on my monopod and appears to functionn exactly as represented. All functions operate smoothly, the camera and 400 mm lens balance easily and I am waiting for the temperatures to get above freezing so I can take the gimbal/monopod/camera combination outside and put it to a real-world test. So far I am completely satisfied with this purchase and especially with the customer support I received prior to my purchase answering the many basic questions I had about the gimbal and its compatibility with my Manfrotto monopod. I highly recommend both the product and Movo.
I bought this to install on my monopod. Works Amazing !
