Although we wanted to introduce the HM-J3D deluxe swing-arm on the next generation of Jr. products, customer demand always wins out.

The Jr.3 Deluxe kit weighs in at 1.5 lbs, 680grams. This is the lightest, best functioning gimbal head on the market, capable of supporting and balancing a 500F4 and Pro body comfortably. Yes, we still recommend a bigger HD3 or Pro2 gimbal for daily use, but if weight is your primary concern and you are travelling by air extensively, then lighten your load: Get a Jr.3 Deluxe, your back will thank you.

The Jr.3 Deluxe, and our other gimbals fit any tripod with a standard 3/8"-16 threaded top. We DO NOT RECOMMEND tripods with a 1/4"-20 thread under any circumstances. Using a 1/4"-20 threaded tripod with a reducer bushing will VOID your warranty.

You still need to buy 1 lensplate or replacement foot for each lens you are going to mount in your gimbal.

NOTE ABOUT LARGE LENSES: If using a large Canon or Nikon lens, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND using a Jobu Design replacement foot, like the LF-C604 or LF-N604. A replacement foot will lower the centre of gravity of your lens and make it lighter. In most cases, large lenses with tall lens-collar feet CANNOT balance on a Jr.3 without a LENS FOOT. We recommend replacement feet for the Nikon 300F2.8, 200-400, 500F4 and 600 F4, and the Canon 500F4 (IS 1 and 2) and 600F4 (IS1 and 2) and 400 F2.8 IS.

Firstly, I found Carmarthen Cameras customer service and their willingness to advise to be second to none. They have a close working relationship with Jobu and are very knowledgeable.I bought the Jobu jr.3 Deluxe to mount on my Gitzo carbon monopod and it now lives on it permanently. Being so compact and lightweight it makes any ball head redundant. Its build quality and 5-year guarantee give me total confidence. I have been using it to support my Canon 100-400mm L II + 1.4x on 7D Mark II with battery grip and am looking forward to it supporting my Canon 500mm F/4L II when it arrives.I exclusively photograph wildlife and so this combo is far easier when on walkabout than carrying my Sirui carbon gimbal on Gitzo carbon tripod - It's Horses-for-Courses and they each offer their own advantages.I won't hesitate to buy from Carmarthen Cameras again.

Ordered this gimbal with other bits and pieces, good service, delivered next day well packaged great build quality, works brilliant with a Sigma 150-600 sport on a carbon monopod.

Ordered this gimbal along with the tcf-36 tripod over christmas, only used this once so will be an on-going review. gimbal is very light but not flimsy, super smooth action, easily mounts and balances my D7200 + grip + sigma 500 f4.5. i looked hard at other gimbals and designs but this made sense - I'm an engineer by trade and its built! will report back later when i have used this more.super service - great communications - great product!
