  If you're using larger video cameras, the longer 500 plates and 500 series pan heads may be necessary to balance the cameras properly. The problem is that the plates are giant and must be removed from the cameras before we put them in our bags. These plates have a screw on the bottom that requires a key or a coin to tighten it and I can't tell you how many keys I've bent trying to put these things on. To make matters worse, they constantly come loose no matter how hard I tighten them. As we transition over to the much smaller GH5 system, we no longer need such hefty gear and I am thrilled to never have to use the long "video plates" again.

  A gimbal head is an essential accessory for wildlife photographers and their long lenses.

  Handholding a long telephoto lens up to the eye is possible for a short while. But even the strongest photographer will not be able to keep the camera up to the eye for very long, so some form of camera support is recommended. If you are shooting from a vehicle or a hide you can use a bean bag, or even a decent monopod but the ideal accessory is the tripod. Much depends on the situation and the lens being used.

  With a typical tripod head, however, using a long, heavy lens means the camera/lens combination is front heavy so it will tip forward and locking it into position puts unnecessary train on the tripod head. Not only that but even if the head does lock securely if the subject decides to move you have to unlock everything to track it and that in practice means you have lost the shot. The accessory of choice for experienced nature photographers is the gimbal head.

  Gimbals are heavy duty units that replaces the usual tripod head and give great support while being really quick, comfortable and smooth to use.

  Once properly set-up, the camera and lens is perfectly balanced at its natural centre of gravity yet it is held securely in position so if you need to quickly realign the lens or pan with the subject you can without undoing any knobs or screws.
