I just want to share my experience of using a Lensmaster Gimbal R2Hs gimbal head.
The gimbal heads exist in two variants: R1 and R2-HS
- R1 assumes the optics has a rotating collar. Advantages are lighter weight and lower price tag.
- R2-HS is more versatile since it can also be used with optics without rotating collar, e.g. scopes. At expense of weight and also price tag.
I opted for the R2-HS with a long plate and have been using it with both short and long optics. The setup is well balanced and a pleasure to use.
The gimbal head is a heavy-duty construction and feels it is designed for heavy loads.
Ordering and overseas shipping were smooth.
If you are considering investing into a gimbal head, I can recommend this product.
Lastly, I have no affiliation with the company, I am just a customer/user.
