Gimbal Head for Sale – Induro GHB2

SOLD

Over the last couple of days I have been investigating the possibilities of part-exchanging my Induro GHB2 Gimbal head in order to ease the pain of buying a carbon fibre tripod, because my current very sturdy aluminium one is simply too heavy to trudge long distances with my DSLR and long telephoto lens. I have been using a monopod which I am able to often strap to a tree with a bungee and use an Acrotech head in gimbal mode atop and this is far lighter. However, when I cannot support the monopod then I do have to have excellent lighting conditions to use it with confidence, under those conditions I have come to the conclusion a much lighter tripod is a better option.

The retail price new appears to be around the £350 mark currently and since I was unable to find a company that had the tripod I sought and accept the gimbal head in part exchange and the price offered for an unencumbered sale was way too low, I am wondering whether the vehicle of my blog might reach someone who would be willing to pay £195 including VAT for it, excluding postage and packing. Naturally I would prefer it was collected that way the purchaser would not be buying blind and I would require cash and would supply a VAT receipt. I am Sole Proprietor of SOLUTIONS photographic and am VAT-registered

I am based near Luton in Bedfordshire and can be contacted for further details using my gmail address:

Above is an up-to-date photo of the head and a close-up of the minor ding it has sustained, which has no adverse effect on the operation, but is naturally a blemish on the otherwise excellent condition.
The quick release plate is the Arca Swiss style, but I cannot supply the plate.
