- 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.

Upgraded from an inexpensive first gimbal and the difference is extraordinary!!! Free moving, well constructed - had people asking about it the first day I used it. Highly recommend!!
Took it to a local dam, to capture bird in flight photos. The Movo gimbal was much better than hand holding my 100-400mm Sigma. The only downside was that the tripod head was not level and as you rotate the gimbal, the camera loses it's level, and there is no way to level it, like a ball head. But, it is my first gimbal head, I'll figure it out. Take a bubble level with me next time to level top of tripod. Well made product, for the money.
Quality is good . It is perfect on my 300mm lens.
Just set up looks and operates great
Movo GH800 Carbon Fiber Professional Gimbal Tripod Head
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.
