I’ve had a cheap Gimbal Head for some time and decided I needed something more sturdy. The GK Katana is heavy but extremely well built. I love it of my old Nikkor 2.8 400mm and new 5.6 200-500. The fit and finish is perfect. The ease of use is spectacular compared to the cheap one. I love it and can’t believe I was too cheap to buy it in the first place.
Great quality. Smooth action. Love it.
GK Katana is the best gimbal head I have worked with. The engineering and precision fit of the components are solid. CNC machining makes this a thing of beauty. It takes some getting use to. I'm not use to having this much control of the vertical horizontal axis when setting up for a shoot. This is a game changer for me. Well Done!
This is one of the best photography items we have purchased in all of our years in business. It is well made, has considerable thought behind the design as it works perfectly with the tripods we have, not to mention, a perfect mate for the big ProMediaGear heavy duty tripod. There are several different Gimbal units on the market today. To me, this is the absolute best, the real professional unit of the litter.
Bought this gimbal some years ago, it accompanied me on trips to the Antarctic, Alaska, the Sahara, Africa, Asia etc. It looks pretty knocked up because I'm not cautious with my gear but it still functions like new. There's just own downside and that's it's a brick compared to its lighter advesary's but if you want stability and everlasting quality for a 600 or 800mm it's best in class.
