Good morning from England - you say "the guys in England seem to favour the Lensmaster" - as you are well aware, like so many, anyone totally satisfied with a product or service will give it a high recommendation, whatever their country of residence. I have no experience with the Beike, so in no way am I one of those in England you say are "putting it down". I prefer to highlight the benefits of a product/service rather than "knock the competition". We're fortunate that there is a gimbal manufacturer here who builds quality equipment, gives excellent customer service, and, for the cost involved, the value gained in return is exemplary. JR1 recommended this product to me. I have found his recommendation to be first-rate. I have even visited the manufacturer as I live within 75 miles of him. My recommendation is for the Lensmaster RH-2 for exactly the above reasons. The company is well used to exporting to other countries, and I know that there are already a number of UHH members in the States currently enjoying the benefits of this gimbal.

Be sure to take a good look at the video on the website link given by JR1.

Here's a few shots of my Beike BK-45:

It's holding 13 or 14 pounds of camera and lens. Works well for me.


Quite impressive. I don't carry as much weight on my Beike but it works OK for me, but then I am not a pro...yet!

Afraid not Andy - but we do live in the age of "globalisation", and Lensmaster are well used to shipping to the USA. You can purchase off the website quite easily and even correspond, if you so wish, with the guy who makes them !

I purchased the RH-2 on-line and shipped it to Alaska. No issues with the purchase or shipment to the States. I looked at the Wimberley gimbal - too expensive and too heavy.

Great idea. I'm sure it would be instructive. Especially if some actual shoots were filmed. And then you could do a voice over commentary so you're not trying to talk and shoot at the same time.


Yes, I guess I could do some BIF's ......That goes on my to-do list !
