Camera/Lens Capacity of 10lbs recommended
70-200 F2.8/F4, 300mm F2.8/F4, 100-400 zoom, 150-400 zoom, 400mm F5.6, 400mm DO, etc.
Lens and camera recommended under 10lb total.
NOTE: Battery grips and pro-size bodies have limited vertical tilt depending on length of lenses, balance points, etc. Best range of tilt is with SLR's without battery grip. Example: A 70-200 F4 Canon lens with 1D size body will always balance too close to the camera body thus limiting how far the swing arm will tilt.
Photographers looking for a very small gimbal head will be thrilled with the new BWG-J3K gimbal head from Jobu Design. This new head is smaller, lighter, smoother and more compact than our earlier BWG-J2K head. Needle roller bearings allow smoother tilting under heavy loads and better adjustment of friction. Lockout force has been improved 200%, and overall durability has been improved in all aspects. The perfect travel companion, it easily fits into small pockets of your existing bags.
