Joe Fitzpatrick and Peggy Farren review the MH-100 MonoGimbal head by Wimberley.
Joe goes over the alternatives; a regular monopod tripod head or a full size gimbal head. Both have major drawbacks. The MH-100 MonoGimbal head by Wimberley is small and lightweight, yet strong enough to steadily hold your camera with a heavy lens. The gimbal is quite smooth so is great for sports or wildlife photography.
Using the lens collar to turn your lens from landscape to portrait mode is super easy. We suggest putting the camera on the right, the monopod on the left side. If you put the monopod on the right, sometimes you don’t have clearance for your fingers between the gimbal and the camera body. The rubber on the gimbal’s knob makes it easy to grip when you want to loosen or tighten the MonoGimbal head, even if you have gloves on.
Joe gives it an A+ for quality and an A+ for practicality.
