This comes from the bird in flight question thread. If a gimbal head is the way to go for telephoto - which one do you suggest? I have a manfroto befree tripod with their integrated ball head. I think this means choices would be 1. Use a conversion kit to attach arca Swiss clamp to the ball head and then use a sidekick type gimbal 2. Bite the bullet and get a new tripod without integrated head and a budget gimbal Seems a lot of faff is gimbal so much better for 100-400? Any suggestions?
