    Gimbal or Ball head?

    Thanks John. I have a ball head which is ok, but when panning it tends to get away from me when I try to keep it level which is why I thought the gimbal may be the better option and keep the ball for other work.

    Gimbal or Ball head?

    I am currently using a Tamron 200-500mm lens with a Nikon body and Manfrotto CF tripod. I am debating as to whether or not it would be better to invest in a gimbal head or stick with the b&s I am using at the moment. Any advice?

    Tamron 200-500mm

    Has anyone had any experience with the Tamron 200-500mm zoom? I have been given one but not had the chance to try it yet-snaps in the garden look promising but any comments or advice much appreciated.

    Again, stretching the limits of the 70-300 plus high ISO made it a little noisier than I would like.
