The Lightweight Gimbal Kit is an all-in-one support package we put together for use with telephoto and super telephoto lenses up to 300mm f/2.8 sized. Key features include:
Ideal for telephoto lenses up to 300mm f/2.8
Lightweight four-section carbon-fiber legs
Weightless gimbal movement when balanced
Four-inch Arca-Swiss plate included
Induro GHB2 Gimbal. When properly balanced, the Induro GHB2 Gimbal makes the camera and lens seem almost weightless, with vertical and horizontal tracking of moving objects becoming relatively simple. With 360º pan and a +90°/-90° tilt range, you can pretty much shoot in any position, just as long as the tripod legs you’re using have a wide stance and high weight capacity.
Quick-Release Plate Included. The GHB2 Gimbal uses the Arca-Swiss type standard quick-release plates. This rental includes one Induro PU100 4-inch lens plate. If you need additional size lens plates, we carry four different sizes for rent separately.
Induro CLT204 Tripod Legs. The included Induro CLT204 Classic Series 2 Stealth Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated to support up to 35.3 lbs. by the manufacturer. We think 25-30 lbs. is a bit more realistic, but that’s still plenty for use with a 400mm f/2.8 / 600mm f/4 sized supertele. Its four-stage design gives it a maximum height of 61.4 inches with its center column extended (53.1 inches without) and a minimum height of 12.6 inches. It collapses down to 21.3 inches for easy transport.
High-Quality Lightweight Build. Constructed from magnesium alloy, the GHB2 itself is very sturdy. It’s 9.5 inches in height and tips the scales at 3.2 pounds. It features oversized lock knobs that are glove-friendly, and the 2.2-inch wide base that’s 3/8"-16 threaded takes advantage of the many tripod systems that offer a large platform.
Tool Kit Included The CLT204 includes a tool kit with three metal spiked feet, an Allen key, and a dual wrench in its own small case. It also includes a deluxe carrying bag with strap for the tripod legs.
