Default My Gimbal head is finally here.

I thought I'd show you what my rig looks like on my new Gimbal head. This is a knock-off I picked up for $110 (shipped). It is a copy of a Wimberly WH-200 costing $595. It's build quality is excellent!

Pretty cool looking, good idea. That and your workbox and you're ready for any situation.

Looks good, you will have a lot on this Gimball.
We do look out at further notices about the use of it and of course the many beautiful pictures you will make with this combination

That does look nice, Gary. What is that vertical scale supposed to be for? I would think you'd always want the camera mounted as low as possible, as you have done.

No instructions came with it, Ted, but I'll figure it out.

Take a look at your gimbal thread over at the fourthirdsphoto forum. John Nicklin provided some insight on the question.

(It's here if anyone else is interested.)
