Hello all you GPI Pro owners. I would appreciate your thoughts on Gimbal grips. VZ or no VZ, pros and cons.

Thanks

Tony

ill go vz.

 

only upside for non vz is u could get your camera lower in low mode (by extra 2 inches or so, and your camera has to be light and your whole post will be insanely long, and the occurrence of that happening is close to 0% ). which means non-vz enables u to get your gimbal higher (in low mode of course)........by 2 inches approx.

 

VZ saves a shit tun of time getting you the perfect droptime u prefer. 

 

hope it helps

Hi Shawn

Thanks for your input. My mind was pretty much made up, now it's sealed. VZ it is.

As a counter point...  I had a gen one pro where I adjusted my gimbal with a 5/32 on the gimbal and the grip, that was a bit time consuming.  My second PRO had a VZ gimbal.  It worked fine but I didn't use it much.  The one I just got is the flip latch (not kip handle) gimbal.  It's my favorite so far.  Super simple, light and mechanical simple.  And I can make slight adjustments in micro seconds.  

I'd get the non VZ.

My 2 cents.

I have the VZ, and don't use it much. Most adjustments I do on the latch, occasionally adding or subtracting a turn or two on the VZ. It's a great gimbal, but I wouldn't spend the extra $$$ on it again.
