Product Highlights
  • Supports Lenses up to 600mm f/4
  • Arca Plate Compatible
  • Precise Balance Ensures 1 Finger Control
  • Calibration Scale in Millimeters
  • Large Locking Knob

The Gepe SK-GH01 Gimbal Head Mount is an ideal solution for photographers who have had the awkward and unwieldy experience of trying to work with a long, heavy lens on a ball or pan head. Balance is the preeminent mission of the gimbal head. Instead of the fixed point of the lens' tripod collar, the SK-GH01 rotates lenses around their center gravity, offsetting their weight and literally allowing adjustments with one finger. The mount has an 80 cm reference scale marked in millimeters for accurate, repeatable settings.

The sturdy aluminum alloy SK-GH01 mounts to tripod legs with a 3/8"-16 screw and is compatible with Arca-type lens plates many of which are 6.0" long allowing sliding adjustments of 3.0" in both directions. Note: quick release lens plates are purchased separately.

        Comments about Gepe SK-GH01 Gimbal Head Mount:

        Used this gimbal head on my Manfrotto tripod to photograph balloon launches. It handled my Sigma 70-200mm just fine. The azmuth functions is smooth as glass, however, the altitude function is a bit stiff. Worked well on balloons but may be limited when photographing birds in flight. No real way to adjust this function, may improve with more use.

              Comments about Gepe SK-GH01 Gimbal Head Mount:

              I bought a 600mm Canon lens, which triggered a number of other purchases. You cannot use a traditional pistol grip ball head for a lens this size. There are a large range of alternatives for Gimbal heads, ranging from $100 to the $550. Wimberly head. So I tried the middle with this Gepe head. It is very well made, quite heavy, and does the job well. Good instructions help you balance the lens on the Gimbal head allowing a big 600mm lens to move about effortlessly. Keep in mind that you will need a Acra Swiss type mount for the lens (not included). The Acura Swiss mounts also run a multitude of prices, I ordered the one that replaced the foot on my Canon lens. It has a long foot that allows further balancing.

                I've only just got this, but my Nikkor 500 AIP & D300/600 balance beatifully on it
                It appears to be very well made and the movements are both smooth and adjustable.
                Will know more (obviously) when it's properly field tested this winter
