Re: Gimbal Head for Wildlife Photography

For any except really big and heavy lenses I find a shoulder pod, designed for video cameras, very useful indeed. I use it for rugby and it's fine with the 300mm f/4, and I've used it lots with the 50-200 4/3 lens and 1.4x converter which is probably heavier.

I use the Kaiser one, from Fotospeed:

Rather pricey for a small accessory but it does the job a treat.
