Benro Launches New Full Carbon Gimble Head with 'Weightless' Moves

Benro Let's Go!


Benro has added a brand new gimble head to its range - the new GH5C - that weighs in at just 1.1kg and can support a mighty 30kg load capacity.

Manufactured in full carbon fibre, the Benro GH5C not only aesthetically beautiful but is the ideal tool for photographers using long and heavy lenses, and is particularly suited to wildlife and sports photographers, shooting on both DSLR and mirrorless systems.

Featuring an Arca-compatible quick release plate for quick, easy and secure camera attachment - the head achieves a feeling of virtual 'weightlessness' even when using the longest, heaviest lenses. Balancing the camera and lens perfectly, the precision engineered GH5C ensures the heaviest cameras and longest lenses pan and tilt smoothly with the force of just one finger. When the desired position is found, the gimble will stay put when pressure is removed.

The black anodised aluminium plate (PL100LW) has been machined to reduce weight as much as possible, without any compromise in performance.

With both vertical and panoramic scales, the Benro GH5C makes it easy to achieve precision composition and placement, with repeatable movement.

Mark Hoskins, Benro UK Brand Manager added:

''Once again Benro has nailed it, we asked them to produce a lighter product without compromise - and what they have delivered is spot on, not only light, but super smooth to use as well.

‘Testing with a Canon 5dMK4 and EF 200-400mm f4 L IS USM lens, fingertip control of the camera/lens positioning was possible, and then you understand why photographers who use gimbals for long lenses tell you why they wouldn't use anything else!'

The Benro GH5C replaces the previous GH2C model - with the new model featuring full carbon fibre construction weighing in at 200g lighter. The new head also comes with a 3 year warranty as standard - which can be extended to 5 years (free of charge) once the product is registered.
