Induro GHB2 overview

  • 1Description

The INDURO GHB2 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 3 and 4 tripods.

Gravity-balanced operation provides essentially "weightless" movement and positioning for long lens/camera systems
Arca-Swiss-compatible quick-release interchangeable industry standard QR system
Oversized lock knobs provide secure locking of camera angle and rotation, even with bulky gloves

    Induro GHB2 reviews

    GHB2 Gimbal Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth and Stable I recently took the GHB2 (attached to an Induro carbon fiber tripod) out for the first time to shoot swans along the Mississippi river. My D810 and Sigma 150-600 sport attached quickly and securely via the Arca plate and clamp and the entire system provided rock-solid stability on uneven ground. The head pans horizontally with a beautifully smooth and effortless motion. The movement never feels loose, but provides a feeling of fluid control. My only negative comment is that the vertical movement is distinctly less smooth and, at times, jerks up or down causing me to lose focus or composition while tracking. This was my first experience with it however and I look forward to shrpening my skills.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic for the money This is beautiful Gimbal head, exquisitely manufactured. The locks work well, Arca Swiss mount is great, but it has one small drawback. The swing arm has a small amount of friction when the lock is fully released. When a 15 pound camera rig, Nikon D4 and 400mm f/2.8 are mounted on this head, it is not really an issue, but the camera will not self level even if fully balanced do to this friction. My guess is the bearings are sleeve type and not roller bearings which would be smoother. But at this price...I would not consider any other gimbal head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent gimbal head I shoot birds and wildlife, and occasional high school sports. After getting a little hands-on experience with all of the top-tier gimbal heads and reading every review and testimonial I could find, I decided on the Induro GHB2. No regrets at all... this is one fine head. Materials - A+. Design - A+. Craftsmanship - A+. All movements are smooth, all lock-down screws are tight. It seems built to last a lifetime (I'll let you know in 50 years). There is no slop in any of the mechanisms. It holds a Canon 500mm f/4 with camera, battery grip and flash without breaking a sweat. Heck, it could probably support a 1957 Buick. Well, maybe not, but you get the picture (no pun intended. hmmmm... scratches chin 'you get the picture.' on second thought, pun intended... pun intended).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like It! The design and operation work as you would expect for a Gimbal Head. Workmanship is good. There is nothing that feels cheap or poorly made. It is not excessively heavy either. The ARCA clamp works very well. Easy attachment and removal to the Gimbal. You won't be dissatisfied. I am using it on a Manfrotto 055XPROB with Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS or Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS primarily. The largest/heaviest camera body is an EOS 1D3. These are EASILY supported with full range of motion.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointing I bought this to use with a Nikon D4s/600mm combination. On paper it seemed perfect, and about $ cheaper than the Wimberly, but in practice the movements were not smooth once the camera and lens wee attached. Although it supported the weight well, the slightly 'sticky' movement made it impractical for video pan shots. Returned it (thank you B&H) in favor of the Wimberly, which is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It delivers on all its promises Great build quality; well finished, and smooth operation. A VERY high quality product. I recently bought an Induro tripod and have been impressed by its top notch quality. When Induro introduced this gimbal head my experince with the tripod made the decison to purchase this newly introduced product an easy one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Gimbal Head I recently purchased an Induro Tripod and was impressed by its build quality and steadiness. The GHB2 Gimbal head is also a high quality and extremely sturdy product. It is very easy to adjust so that my 500mm lens & camera are perfectly balanced. It is very smooth and absolutely rock steady. I use it for wild life photography and it really delivers as promised.
    Date published: 2010-03-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you use a medium to large telephoto lens, you need this! I spent hours looking at all the different model and read every review on each. The GHB2 seemed to be the one to get. I'm happy to report that it was an excellent choice. I've had it out twice with my 1DX and a Sigma 150-600C and it is solid and smooth. Went to shoot eagle on the Mississippi River with my friend who has a Wimberley, and side by side I could not tell a difference. I would make this purchase again. And, if you register the warranty online, you get a 10 year warranty instead of the advertised 5 year warranty.
