Benro Gimbal heads have been developed to allow the user to manipulate heavier cameras with large telephoto lenses more comfortably than with a standard tripod head. Speed, stability and manoeuvrability are especially important features when using long and heavy telephotos where a steady camera platform combined with quick smooth action controls is essential to insure sharp imaging.
This is especially important in long distance sports and wildlife photography. The mechanism on Benro Gimbal heads operates on the principal of manipulating the lens using its own centre of gravity. Using this principal it enables the photographer to operate high magnification telephoto lenses very effectively.
