Joy Guru. I am tempted to buy it, but am hesitating since I already have Wimberly Side-Kick which can also be used with a monopod although it is designed for tripod use. Of course it is bulkier than the new item, but it does eliminate the offset that occurs with the monogimbal. Would appreciate your comments is you have made a comparison.
BTW, I did attend your recent presentation at CAPS and found it outstanding and would recommend that those who were unable to attend watch the presentation on your utube channel.
Thanks Bill. The MonoGimbal actually utilized the same components as the sidekick but with a different body. The strength and stability are therefore not limited by the strength of the ballhead and it will easily handle anything your monopod can support. In actual use the weight is centered over the foot of the monopod. The offset provides several advantages and no disadvantages over a traditional design when used on a monopod.
Thanks Steve, buying on your recommendation, my monogimbal arrived in New Zealand from Amazon this week. So much better than using my regular gimbal head on my Manfrotto monopod. However my D is now about 6 inches lower even with the monopod fully extended. Thanks a mil Steve. Now I can do that AND not have to go insane over handheld stabilizing:. I have been using a proper Gimbal head inspired from your proper gimbal head video last year with my Manfrotto monopod for quite some time now.
It was a real pain to lug around the heavy rig compared to my tilt headI occasionally take it out. Now I have ordered one here in the UK, Ored Bred - Igacorosas - Monopods (CD), expecting to give me some nice shots with the setup. So I decided to pick up one of these just got today. Can one use this on a tripod?
Ginnie and I took out this new setup for a test drive. I fastened the Sigma Contemporary foot with double screws drilled and tapped the foot and locktite on to a slide plate.
Our cameras are Nikon D We shot both standing and sitting in lightweight foldable chairs Lightspeed Tripod. Compared to my Benro Gimbal Head on a tripod, I was able to correct and find Ored Bred - Igacorosas - Monopods (CD) in flight much quicker both standing and sitting.
Both arrived yesterday, and I used them together for the first time today. The tripod leg stand of the monopod will support the weight of the rig if the legs are properly positioned.
Thank you for making my bird and wildlife photography both easier and more enjoyable! My solution is to have the foot tapped so I can place and additional screw to hold the Arca plate to the foot.
These Desmond plates have a ridge on the back that reduces the chances of the lens foot slipping out. They come in various lengths and are inexpensive. They will work with a single screw and prevent twisting out, but it is necessary to tighten Ored Bred - Igacorosas - Monopods (CD) occasionally. They are not as secure as having 2 screws but they are a lot better than a flat plate with a single screw. I looked at the Desmond plates. I simply have to make one using one or maybe two additional screws and locktite everything into place.
When mounting this lens the MonoGimbal should go on the right grip side of the camera. This type of ring releases when rotated to the top and will release when used on the left non grip side in the portrait rotation. When transporting the camera lock the lens ring, when using the camera loosen the lens ring Your rig will work great on the MonoGimbal but this tip you save you some minor aggravation.
Thanks Barry. I will do this. Ginnie and I are good underwater photographers www. I really enjoy your videos and the way you present the information. I have several of your e-books and read them from time to time. How Ored Bred - Igacorosas - Monopods (CD) hard copies. I find print easier to read and I seem to remember the information better.
How about a video for us old folks with some alternatives to the big lenses. Thank you Steve for another informative video. It is too much of a juggling act to count on a screw knob. Thank you. How can I ever save enough money to go to your class in Costa Rica if I need to keep buying all this cool gear you review? Thanks Steve. Great video. This looks great.
So, not really ideal. Way smoother and much stronger. The MonoGimbal is not intended for monopod use and may not perform well on tripod even with a pan head. I have the Wimberly foot. It replaces the quick release feature with a foot that stays on and is more secure, but not easily removable. The back end extends further and is easier to balance with a heavy camera D plus grip plus teleconverter.
The original foot does not extend far enough to balance this combination. I use the replacement lens foot from Kirk Enterprises for PF,and my old Dovetail is built in. It is essentially the same as the f2. I have one of their products and it is great. I like the concept of its design, however, I am concerned that carrying a heavy lens and camera body across your back while hiking distances as shown in your video, might break down the tightness and hold of the gimbal head mount.
This is my concern more than the stress on the monopod. Can you please check with the designers from Wimberley and see if they approve of such usage. I always suggest using a lens strap no matter what equipment you are using. I have sometimes carried as shown in video and it works good.
I also often point the lens straight down, lock it, and carry in front of me in a waist level pouch. If you have a chest strap you can even strap it and carry hands free. Caramba, excellent review and I am ordering immediately! Hi Steve, Another great video as usual. I began using an Acratech ball head with side mount gimbal feature on smaller lenses 80 — and found it worked pretty well. If this had been available, I would have bought it. I found it smoother to use and felt more secure with heavier rigs.
I am so excited to hear about the Wimberly Monogimbal Head in your video. Having some sort of camera support, whether a tripod or a monopod, is absolutely essential for a photographer. While most of us know what a tripod is, a monopod is exactly what it sounds like — a tripod with only one leg.
This may not make sense to some, and in certain situations, a monopod might be outright silly. How can a monopod be more useful than a tripod? In what situations should you choose a monopod? Sometimes your camera kit can be particularly large and heavy.
This is especially true for wildlife or sports photographers shooting with long heavy zoom lenses. If weight is your main hindrance, a monopod sounds like a Ored Bred - Igacorosas - Monopods (CD) solution. If your problem is low-light and long shutter speeds, then a tripod is going to be more useful to you.
A good sturdy tripod may provide more image stability, but they are much bulkier, often difficult to transport, and harder to deploy. By the time you successfully set up all this equipment using a tripod, someone with a monopod will have already taken their shot and moved on to the next subject.
Monopods are simple, lightweight, and easy to use. Though tripods are praised for their superior stability, monopods can perform just as well when used properly. The compact size of a monopod not only makes carrying it a breeze but also makes setup much less complicated.
The 3 Legged Thing ALAN is a professional monopod that outshines all its contenders in terms of performance and durability. Formed from percent pure carbon fiber and aircraft-grade alloys, the ALAN monopod is lightweight at only 0. This monopod is also robust, with a maximum load capacity of a massive 60kg!
The ALAN can be used as a camera boom or a microphone — so it can suit multiple needs. However, this monopod happens to be one of the pricier monopods and is not suited for everyone since it can only extend to The ALAN is ideal for action and sports photography, as well as stabilization for videographers.
