Induro GHB1 Gimbal Head
Key Features
  • "Weightless" Freedom of Camera Movement
  • Quick & Easy Tracking of Moving Objects
  • Ideal for Long Telephoto Lenses
  • Fluid Panning and Tilting
The INDURO GHB1 Gimbal Head is ideal for photography involving long, heavy telephoto lenses--in sports or nature photography, for instance. Working with a long lens on a standard ballhead or tilt head can be a real struggle, distracting you from the photography. The gimbal head makes the camera and lens seem almost weightless, with vertical and horizontal tracking of moving objects becoming relatively simple--a feat not possible with any other support system. An Arca-Swiss-compatible quick-release plate is included. Fits size 1 and 2 tripods.

Solid Gimbal, Great Value

Very impressed with this gimbal. I was worried the side mount would not be as stable as a cradle mount but was pleasantly surprised to find it is probably more stable with no vertical arm and connections to add play. Using with a Tamron 150-600 and 70-200 and works very well with both. Great fluid movement and rock solid when locked down. Great value.

Excited to try it out. I have the Wimble sidekick but am always worried about turning the wrong knob and dashing my gear to the ground. This gimbal is solid and appears to be an excellent upgrade.

So much easier.

We bought two of these Gimbal Heads for my husband and I to use in our wildlife photography. When it comes to wildlife, there's not much time to fiddle with numerous adjustments. These heads offer quick and easy rotation for any angle. The knobs are big enough to use easily and locking in your shot is fast and easy without taking your eye away from the camera. Handles our 100-400 long lens with ease. It also allows you to balance this long and heavy lens so it seems to float on air. So happy we made the leap.

Wonderful for the price

I have not had a lot of chance to use this but what I have I would definitely recommend this. I have a Canon 70D and the new 100-400 lens. It balances very well with this set up.

Great

This is a well made and lite wt gimbal. I use this for mounting a Sigma 60-600 and a Nikon 200-500. This replace my Oben gimbal. Take up less room in the bag when space is important while traveling. Nice easy motion while shooting BIF.

makes my camera weightless!

Tried taking pictures of airplanes taking off and landing with a 400 mm lense.. at a 1/60th second, got full propeller disks and wonderfully blurred backgrounds! Very smooth.. when the camera/lens is balanced, the camera is essentially weightless. Very satisfied.

Very sturdy on the tripod with ease of movement of the camera. I have only used once but plan to use for bird photography and going on a workshop to Bosque Del Apache NP at the end of Nov. to put it through its paces. It seems perfect for my Olympus OMD with my 100 to 400 f5.6 lens.

This gimbal is a nice fit. It's half the size of my other gimbal that I use. It work great with my Sigma 60-600 and my Nikon 200-500 lenses. It is solid built and lite wt. I use it on my mono-pod and tripod. Was able able to pick it up on B&H daily sales. thanks B&H

I already own 3 (regular) gimbals- how is this different from a regular gimbal? Thank you.
Asked by: Lygea
The Induro GHB1 Gimbal Head is very good and a different design and it is subjective. Some prefer the connection to be horizontal and some like the vertical design of the Induro. In use they are really about the same.

question

Can a gimble head be used as a landscape tripod for a lens without a collar? How would you rotate it to landscape?
Asked by: Jeff
When the gimbal head arrived, I realized that I could not use it in landscape mode for lenses that do not have a collar. So, I exchanged the GHB1 for a GHB2C, which does allow you to use any lens in landscape mode.

question

What is the offset between the quick release clamp and the centerline of the tripod mount? I'd like to figure out where my 600mm's center of gravity would fall relative to the tripod.
Asked by: John
I have used the gimbal with the 200-400 VRi and Sigma 120-300 OS S on a D3S. In both cases the lens has ended up just off the center line. The center falls inbetween the the lens body and the lens foot.

question

How does this unit work? In other words, how do you use it?
Asked by: Anonymous
A photographer friend recommended a gimbal type tripod mount so I purchased this to use with my Induro CT 114 tripod for a trip to photograph the brown bears in Katmai Nat'l Park. I really like it's smooth operation, but it took a little practice to get the hang of it. The base screws on to the tripod. The quick release plate screws onto your tele-lens. It is easy to switch from landscape to vertical shots by loosening the lens tripod collar and moving your camera into position. The bottom knob controls the 360 degree horizontal pan movement, the upper knob controls the vertical angle of the lens. When the knobs are tightened your lens/camera does not move. Period. Even with a large heavy tele-zoom. A great feature. Check the Induro website for their short video. Hope this has helped.
