Sirui PH-20 Gimbal Head
Key Features
  • Strong Carbon Fiber/Aluminum Gimbal Head
  • Supports Up to 40 lb
  • Weighs Only 2.4 lb
  • Reduced Vibrations Due to Carbon Fiber
The Sirui PH-20 Gimbal Head is a great solution to the problem of shooting moving subjects with a long telephoto lens. Ball heads and 3-way heads can be cumbersome in fast-moving situations, but the gimbal head makes your camera and heavy lens seemingly weightless, and you can smoothly and precisely track fast-moving subjects.

Cross-patterned, multi-layer carbon fiber in the arm and forged aircraft aluminum alloy in the L-bracket make the PH-20 very strong--it can hold up to 44 lb, but it weighs only 2.4 lb. Carbon fiber also reduces vibrations and provides better tolerance for temperature changes.

With the camera and lens perfectly balanced on the gimbal head, there’s no need to lock any controls. You can quickly and easily move your camera in any direction with a very light amount of force. In fact, a correctly aligned system can be controlled with one finger.

Asked by: Louis
This is not a fluid head, but it will allow you to position a long telephoto lens attached to your camera more quickly without having to unlock it all the way.

Asked by: Cindy
I don't know why you couldn't. I have used mine on a Benro tripod and Ifootage monopod with no problems. Great thing about B&H is that if it doesn't work you can return.

question

Currently own a Sirui EN-2204 tripod, how will the Gimbel Head PH-20 work with that and a Nikon 200-500 mm lens?
Asked by: Erin
This gimbal head will mount directly onto your current tripod. This will easily support the 200-500.

question

I purchased this Gimbal Head which came with a arca style quick release plate that attaches to the camera. I would like to purchase an extra quick release plate, however I don't see any of the same models that came with the head. This one is a very long plate with two thumb screws on the bottom, like in the picture above.
Asked by: Anonymous
The plate that comes with that head is the Sirui PH-120. The link for that is, http://bhpho.to/19x8d6M

question

Is there clearance to mount a camera with a normal lens. I'm assuming the body will be much closer to the curved bracket and am thinking it may not clear. For example will OM-D with 12-40 mounted work for panoramas?.
Asked by: Chris
By design, a gimbal head would not have enough clearance to mount the camera directly to the head. Gimbals are designed to connect a lens with a tripod collar onto the gimbal, where the lens is much narrower by design compared to the camera body. Two options that may work would be to purchase a monopod head to increase the clearance of the camera, such as the Sirui L-10 Monopod Tilt Head, B&H # SISUL10. The second option would be to purchase the Wimberley P5 Universal Quick Release Plate, B&H # WIQRPP5, and the Wimberley Module 8 M-8 Perpendicular Plate, B&H # WIM8, which would allow you to mount your camera and allow you to slide the camera forward or backward to orientate the camera on the head. (If you already have an Arca-Swiss quick release plate for your camera, then the P5 plate would not be needed).

Is it possible or advisable to use this gimble head on the Sirui P-326 monopod?
Asked by: troy
I would not recommend using a gimbal head on a monopod. Use the Wimberley MonoGimbal head instead. Regular gimbals are better on a steady platform such as a tripod.

Is the LENS FOOT for Sony 400 mm f2.8 compatible with this gimbal?
Asked by: Brett
That's the only lens I have used with this gimbal head - it works fine. I do attach the quick-release plate (that comes with the gimbal head) to the 400 / 2.8 foot (which then allows easy adjustments when balancing). I see that B&H has indicated you need to buy the quick-release plate separately - I did not do that. Note on B&H page for this product: "In the Box: ... quick-release plate".
