When it comes to tripod-mounting DSLRs with long lenses, a gimbal mount is hard to beat in terms of balance, ease of handling and peace of mind. The Custom Brackets Gimbal-LB mounts a lens of up to 400mm sideways for easy handling, and utilises roller-bearings which give an almost liquid smoothness to the movement. Handily, the design also takes up less space in the kit bag than many of its pricier rivals.
