question

I would like to use the Tomahawk Gimbal with a Manfrotto 685B monopod and attach a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary with my Canon 5D Mark 2. Do I need to order a mounting plate separately in order to attach the 150-600 to the Tomahawk gimbal? Thank you
Asked by: David
You would need a lens balance plate. I recommend the PX6 6 inch lens plate for that lens. It will get mounted to your lens foot on the Sigma. The lens collar would allow you to rotate your lens around from Portrait to Landscape.

question

May I know this gimbal fit for RRS lever release clamp?
Asked by: Jaan
I would say yes as the Really Right Stuff lever clamp is an Arca Swiss plate and the tomahawk gimbal fits Arca Swiss plates. My only concern is that the Tomahawk sits vertically in the lever clamp when the ball head is tilted at 90 degrees as it is designed to do so there is a fair bit of downward pressure on the clamp especially with heavy lenses and larger cameras. The Tomahawk has three safety pins to stop it slipping down but if the tripod was carried with the camera attached and turned so that the plate could slip out in the opposite direction you could have a problem if the lever was not bighting quite strongly. I have an Arca Swiss lever release clamp that also has a tightening knob opposite the lever which ensures a solid grasp. Oh by the way the Tomahawk is a brilliant invention. I love it. It is easy to attach, quite light and compact and is even nice to hold and steer your camera around with. One tip is to buy at least a 4 inch or longer plate to attach to your telephoto lens so you have a bit of movement to balance your lens.
