    Trying my new gimbal head in the backyard. Much better than handholding a huge camera/lens combo and I think there is some improvement in sharpness especially at longer distances. Even with OS my hands are to shaky for clear shots at distance. These are all between 30 and 60ft and the chickadee is cropped almost 100%.

    I got the Manfrotto. It's big and clunky and I presume heavier than many of the others. but the reviews were good and the price was right.
