The GHB2 gimbal head is ideal for very long, heavy telephoto lenses used in sports or bird/nature photography. Vertical and horizontal tracking of fast moving objects is quick and easy. And balancing a camera/lens system on a gimbal head makes it essentially “weightless” providing freedom of movement not possible with any other support system.
The INDURO GHB2 Gimbal Head is ideal for photography involving long, heavy telephoto lenses--in sports or nature photography, for instance. Working with a long lens on a standard ballhead or tilt head can be a real struggle, distracting you from the photography. The gimbal head makes the camera and lens seem almost weightless, with vertical and horizontal tracking of moving objects becoming relatively simple--a feat not possible with any other support system. An Arca-Swiss-compatible quick-release plate is included. Fits size 3 and 4 tripods.

Edit: My first day out birding and all seems Okay. Even the vertical axis drag was not too much of a bother for stationary targets. Birds in
flight remains a concern however. Stay tuned. BTW here's a way to attach your camera body to the gimbal, I just ordered one. Desmond

Update: Dec. 16 I've upgraded my review to 4 starz now finding the vertical axis not to be a problem. Also I've added new glass, a Sigma 150-600C a more weighty lens and the GHB2 performs very well.
This Induro head, like others of this style, can actually fit in my camera bag allowing me to carry the tripod and ball head separately. This allows a much more compact carrying experience and allows me to use the ball head for non-gimbal use with regular camera/lens combinations.
Using a 500mm Sigma lens and a DSLR with battery grip, this head seemed to handle the weight just fine. It was, however, slightly less than smooth when pivoting the camera up and down. The locking knob of the gimbal pivot was also a little weird and tended to be either fully locked or unlocked. It does not easily allow slight tension to be placed on the pivot.
Lastly, I could not tilt the camera up all the way without hitting the locking knob of my ball head. This could be a simple flaw in my specific ball head design, and was easily solved by pivoting the gimbal head back slightly from perfect vertical position. This would not be any issue if I did not have the battery grip on my camera.
I would like to try Wimberley's version of this style of gimbal for a comparison. It appears to only be ~$50 more expensive but may work better?
Handles heavy loads and secured lens and camera very well
Compact and easily removed for transport
Locking knob worked best for fully locked or unlocked position only
Smoothness of pivot was a little lacking
If you're using lenses with their own mounting foot I strongly suggest trying a gimbal head with your tripod, especially if you photograph birds or other wildlife. You'll feel nearly as free as hand holding your rig, but you'll have stability hand holding is unlikely to match.
I now pack my tripod and Induro gimbal head on every trip.
Works, adjusts and pans smoothly, and sets tightly enough to prevent drift or slippage. recommend at least a 100 mm AS-type plate for forward/backward balancing adjustment.
