Love the build of the gimbal. Lateral panning movement is smooth vertical movement is nice as well feels a wee bit sticky. But otherwise for the price I don’t think you’ll find one that is any better.
There is one thing that annoys me and that is the knob in the swing arm. The swing arm is not independent of the rotation of the knob when rotating the tightening knob counter clockwise. So if you’re not careful you might hit yourself in the face like me.
Love the arcs Swiss compatible plate, would like to maybe see one with a quick release/level lock. It would make transitioning from gimbal to handheld that much more quicker when shooting sports or wildlife.
The ball Bearing base on this model makes it rotate very smooth. I made the mistake of buying a cheaper Gimbal only to find the base was so stiff every time I tried to rotate the Gimbal it just unscrewed itself from the tripod. I sent it back and bought the Movo. Very happy with this Gimbal.
I just received my GH700 MKII and i quickly mounted it to my Manfrotto Tripod. Right away i was impressed with the quality of build and the fluid motion. I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for, but every now and then you get more than you pay for and this is the case with this product. There's plenty of adjustment for camera clearance if you have a battery pack on the bottom of your camera body. I mounted my Nikon D810 with the Sigma 150-600 lens and it nearly balanced itself. I saved at least $200 over similar capable brands/models. I'm very happy with this purchase and will reccommend this model/brand to my fellow shutterbugs.
Very well made. Works great!
I am very glad that I got this. It makes using a long lens on astro shots easy. It does take some getting use to for adjusting the lens angle but it is very good platform to shot from.
Nicely designed and well built. Definitely worth the price.
Got it today. It tilts and pans smoothly and very easy to assemble. Using it with a 100-400mm and 5dmkiv. Two things : the GH does not sit perfectly on the tripod, it wobbles and when I tried to remove it from the tripod to check and fix, the base of the GH and the tripod are stuck. I can't remove it , I don't wan't to adjust the pan knob too much for leverage for I don't want to force new gear. Beware
Thes is a good gimbal for wildlife photography. I used it my last few trips and it performs well. Good value for the money
Love the MOVO Gimbal it is easy to use and love both of the knobs being on the same side, now I do not accidentally unscrew the camera plate, which I did with the last Gimbal I had. I caught the camera and lens before they hit the ground. The MOVO is so easy to use and maneuver. Also it is light and does not add much weight to a already heavy set up. I wish I had gotten it the first time, but have it now. Thank you so much it is awesome.
Very happy with purchase. The gimbal head is top notch, solid, stable and perfect for birding. I also had a chance to interact with customer service and more than pleased with their responses. Overall a highly satisfied customer. I'll recommend this product for sure.
