Went out the other day looking for Owls in Delta BC. As I parked my car I took note of the temperature on the dash of the car, it reads -11c. I walk to keep warm and I do not see any movement of birds at all, so I set up near a large log to be sheltered from the wind and I wait. Then I start to run the GH400 through the processes of following birds that I do see from afar. I was very pleased at how smooth the gimbal operated at these cold temperatures. I could only stay out for about three hours before I cold and I had to go to warm up.
In short I’m pleased with the GH400 gimbal...I give it a five star rating.
I really looking for a good Gimbal
every Gimbal is defenetly heavier as the GH400
plus a good Fluid Head!
The best of too Worlds and in my Backpack is more

Thanks Guys for this Great Buildquality!
Bought online, including postage to Australia. Delivered to my door in 10 days with all the hassle of import, taxes, and delivery charges wrapped into one low fee ( about US$25 ). Great product.
I have not yet made much use of this new accessory for my tripod, but I am expecting that it will allow me to make sharper images of the action subjects I enjoy shooting, e.g., wild birds, air shows, sports car races, etc. The head is well made, but I guess I will need to buy a longer mounting plate in order to get my camera/lens combination (Canon 7D Mark II w/ battery grip and 100-400 mm lens) to balance. It probably would balance without the weight of the battery grip, but I like the additional shooting time it provides since I shoot these subjects on high-speed continuous most of the time. The rotation about the gimbal head's horizontal axis is very smooth, and so is the rotation about the vertical axis of my tripod's ball head - the two work well together. At this point, all is as expected and I'm looking forward to making extensive use of this new piece of gear in the near future.
I already had a full size gimbal, unfortunately it was metal and weighed a ton. It was mounted directly on my heavy duty tripod. Had to take it off when I went out on the road. This carbon fiber half head is light, easy to mount on my travel tripod right on the ball head as pictured. It is now a permanent part of my travel kit. I do a lot of hiking so this was a great buy at the price too.
Haven’t had a chance to really use, and test it yet!
(Did find some minor cosmetic flaws in the carbon weave though!? The one looks like a minor bonding agent tiny gap? I hope so anyway? And that it’s not a minor crack?) The whole structure is only as good as it’s weakest point, though! Only time, and use will tell!? [This Gimbal fixture wasn’t a whole lot of money though! And you really only get what you pay for! Only occasionally, a little more?] WJL.
This gimbal head is is one of the best I have used.Its light, and works very well. Thank you Movo for giving us a great tool to work with and making affordable.
This is an awesome piece and good for light travels. It saves space and weight. Easy and quick to install on the tripod and moves flawlessly even with a sigma 150-600 sport and a canon 6d mark 2 with battery grip.
Affordable solution to having a gimbal tripod head to use with my equipment.
