I have a MH-100 on a monopod and it works great in that application. As is, it wouldn't work well on a tripod as it doesn't have any ability to pan, it's just a tilt head. That works on a monopod because you just twist the monopod itself for panning. You could make it work on a tripod by mounting it on a panning base and then mount that assembly on top of the tripod but you'd want some way to pan when it's mounted on a tripod.Has anyone tried the Wimberley MH-100 MonoGimbal Head? It is made for a monopod, but I don't see why it couldn't work on a tripod. I have no experience with a gimbal head, but since I got my Nikon 200-400 f4 I can see the advantage of a gimbal over a ball head.
Yes, Hector certainly likes the Flexshooter!Have not used the Flexshooter Pro myself but did a worokshop (mnostly shooting birds and BIF) a few months ago with an accomplished pro, Hector Astorga. He'd been using the Flexshooter for several months then with a Sony 600mm lens and was very pleased with it. Said he hadn't used his gimbal since he first picked up the Flexshooter.
