In this episode of Photographer’s Friday I am telling about how I use my different tripod heads and how I actually often use my ball head as a gimbal head for both my Tamron 150-600mm and my Nikon 600mm f4.

This is the Gimbal style head I am using in the video:
And this is the Ball head:
For me, the best tripod for wildlife photography is the one I am bringing with me all the time and the best tripod head is the one I can use for most of my photography.
Very often I leave the tripod at home, if it is too big and bulky, but I am actually trying to change that:)
for If you are doing wildlife or bird photography or other kind of nature photography where you are using big lenses, I think it is worth it to buy a good quality oversized ball head for your tripod, because it gives you the option to use it as a gimbal style head.
