Professional wildlife photographer, Ian Plant, says, “If you are serious about wildlife photography, you will need a gimbal head.” In this video, he will explain the uses of the gimbal head.

The gimbal is a tripod head designed for fluid movement so you can easily track your wildlife subjects. It has a control knob that allows you to pan up down, another knob to pan left and right, and a third to control the tension of your motion. Ian recommends keeping the controls loose in order to follow wildlife movement whether a bird in flight or an animal on land.

Join pro shooter, Ian Plant, as he shows how the gimbal head will help you improve your wildlife photographs.
