Last October I went on a photo safari in Kenya. I was told and was well aware that one of the essential items would be some type of camera support other than a tripod. The first thing that came to mind was a bean bag, something I use religiously in my nature and landscape photography when a tripod isn't practical. Upon digging my trusty old bean bag out I found it to be in pretty poor condition and in need of replacement. I had heard about your products through the "grapevine" so I thought I'd give your fullsized MOVO THB04 a shot and boy was I glad I did.
For two straight weeks from sun up to sundown in fair weather and inclement weather I put the MOVO TBH04 through its paces. The MOVO THB04 rode relentlessly strapped to the roof bars of our LandRover (see photo) and never once showed signs of failure and preformed flawlessly. It was always there giving the required support needed for my 600mm lens giving me the ability to obtain tack sharp images!
The added option in using the head mounting plate gives the product another versatile stability dynamic that is perfect for shooting on the go when weight and space are such precious commodities. Everything fits together in a package that is extremely portable and at the ready when needed.
I was so impressed with the MOVO THB04 that I ordered a junior sized one (MOVO THB 03) to supplement my full sized MOVO THB04 for this year's Safari that I will be embarking on in a little less than two weeks.
I would expect it to preform as well as the larger one.
Thank you for marketing such a durable and practical photographic product.
