Zenelli CARBONZX Overview

  • 1Description

The CARBONZX Carbon Fiber Gimbal Head with Accessories from Zenelli is a lightweight head made from 100% completely hollow carbon fiber. It includes a Save Lenses Lever, and a Quick-Release Lever. Hard-anodized aluminum and stainless steel hardware help ensure high resistance to wear and tear, and corrosion.

The gimbal has a full 360° range of motion for both the pan and tilt, and separate locks with tension control for each. The clamp is compatible with most Arca-type dovetail plates, and is opened and closed via a thumb screw. Grooves in the clamp allow for use of plates with safety stop screws. The base of the clamp can be adjusted 4.8" up and down to balance and adjust the nodal point.

The Quick-Release Lever allows you to quickly open and close the gimbal head's Arca-type clamp. The width of the lever can be adjusted and locked in place for different width plates, and a safety lock prevents the clamp from accidentally opening and releasing the plate. The Save Lenses Lever is mounted onto the vertical arm of the clamp and when activated, prevents the clamp from tilting forward, which might smash the lens into the tripod. This is especially useful when changing camera bodies. A padded shock absorber on the lever protects the carbon fiber from being damaged.

    Zenelli CARBONZX Reviews

    CARBONZX Carbon Fiber Gimbal Head with Accessories is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Matters The Zenelli Gimbal is a very slick designed gimbal that is easy to travel with. Its lightweight, sturdy construction allows it to carry the heaviest super telephoto lenses without losing its fluent movability. This gimbal has a quick release system which works great and it doesn't lose any performance in the weather or extreme temperatures. Most of all it's glossy carbon fiber appearence makes it an attractive piece of equipment to carry your gear around with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from lighter but less stable than wimberley used with 600 f4. it is certainly lightweight. it has more vibration than the wimberley version. you have to be extra careful to have your left hand on top to dampen this vibration and use your vr.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but with a serious flaw Overall great head love the quality, balance and the gimbal retaining lock etc . Very useful indeed. The flaw is in the locking mechanism for the camera plate. To lever and retaining lock are fine but the knob that you tighten is woefully inadequate - way too small, difficult to adjust and seems to loosen constantly. If this was fixed would be a 5 star and more Overall worth the money and happy but too much checking Im not going to lose the camera and lens

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bench mark gimbal head for large lenses I have used my Nikon D5 + 800mm f5.6e on the Zenelli Carbon ZX for 2+ years and 1000s of shutter activations. Previously, the Wimberley WH-200 was my go to gimbal. Though I still own and am fond the Wimberley, I haven't used it after owning the Zenelli. The camera and lens mount effortlessly and securely with Zenelli's 'quick-release lever'. However, the 'save lenses lever' is my favorite feature. It allows quick movement in the field as well as rapid exchange of the camera body and/or teleconverter. IMO, the Wimberley would be greatly improved if it had a similar feature. My one request for service was rapidly answered via Zenelli's online help (i.e., info@zenelli.it). Finally, if you purchase the Zenelli, watch the product and review videos before using.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from light weight but massive pain getting lens onto it This is the lighest weight and best looking GImbal head on the market, but those are the only positive statements I can make. This head is so painful to fit a plate on, has such a small tightening handle and such a useless lever that I missed numerous photos spending up to 5 minutes getting my canon 600 locked on to it. Never buy this item especially at $1300 after the QR Plate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the go-to gimbal for professionals A lot can be said about the craftmansships as it is absolutely second to none but the #1 feature that I enjoy about this gimbal besides the class-leading low weight, is the ability to adapt and use every larger lens on the market with upmost ease and ultra fast movement. This is the benchmark and one I love to use. Prior experiences include: Wimberley II and Jobu Design BWG-PRO 2 to name a few.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product Great product, the lightest. A nice feeling to the touch. I must say that I was hesitant but after use I am surprised, the QR lever is interesting and safe for those who understand how to use it. I recommend watching the producer's video here: https://youtu.be/EkJpZPKFp60.

    Hi, I'm interested in this Zenelli . Can you get the Zenelli Acra Swiss quick release plate with the stops and bubble level built into the plate. And do you have a Zenelli Brochure showing accessories that you can send me ? FJD Sporting Collectables, Frank J. Dattalo Jr., 400 Sharon Drive, Rochester, NY 14626
    Asked by: Frank J. D.
    The head does not really have any other additional accessories but what is listed and that is part of the head. And the only item it does not come with is the quick release plate. The plate is Arca-Swiss style and there are many plates available and it as to the correct one it depends on the lens you will be using on the head.

    I plan on using this with a Nikon 400 2.8E and would like to inquire if it will mount on this out of the box? Any other accessories I would need? THanks!
    Asked by: Jonathan M.
    Hi Jon, I shoot a Nikon 200 to 400 2.8 most of the time. I had to buy a small rail that attaches to the arm on the lens. That then the slides into the existing bracket slot on the gimbal head. The little rail was probably a $20 item. You can get them anywhere. They are pretty universal.
