Are there ball bearings in the moving joints of this gimbal head? Does the camera move smoothly when mounted on this gimbal? Is the plate that comes with this suffice or is an additional one needed?
Asked by: Terrance
The type of bearings in this head are not listed. The movement is good for an entry level gimbal. The plate is fine for short to medium size lenses.

We sourced the specs from Smith Victor's website, it is obviously incorrect, 3.2lbs is most likely the correct weight for the head.

question

How well will this work with the nikon 200-500mm f/5.6?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have been using this Gimbal with the Nikkor 500mm f/4, as well as the Sigma 150-600 sport and it handles the lenses just fine. No worries about the Head. I found this head to be well made and more than built to take these lenses. As commented on earlier - I agree that you should be cautious of the Tripod you mount this head on. Make sure it is heavy and sturdy enough to take the weight of the head as well as the camera and lens.
