If you’re considering buying a gimbal have a look at fluid heads as well, buying your first gimbal might not be as straightforward as you thought.

I’ve linked two very informative short videos on gimbals and fluid heads and what to look out for in quality and issues to look for. I have also another good video on how each compares Gimbals vs Fluid Heads.

I personally use a fluid head as these are already in my kit as a commercial photographer. I was considering adding a Gimbal and did my research and thought I’d share some findings.
