I have recently ordered a Bogen 3421 gimbal. I too had budget constraints. works excellently, no restraints so far. takes some getting used to. of course it is not wimberley/ king cobra / sidekick .but it more than serves the purpose, I was pleasantly surprised. check some pics here. http://www.pbase.com/littleflurry/bogen3421 one of the best birders in philipines uses the same support http://www.pbase.com/liquidstone/image/74190167 Amol
