Telephoto lens supports are becoming more popular as they have been proven to enhance the stability of such setups by distributing the weight of the camera through the support, instead of all the weight being on the lens foot. Improved stability and weight distribution means a lesser chance of blurred images from camera shake and smoother gimbal operation.
Leofoto's telephoto lens supports are available in 250mm and 400mm versions - it is up to you to measure the distance between your camera body and the lens foot to see which length will be ideal for your setup.
The articulating support arm features three hinges, two of which are operated by an allen key and one which has a big locking knob, operated by hand. This knob has a shifting rail, which also aids with height adjustments of the arm to ensure optimal alignment for camera support. The entire articulating arm can be removed with an allen key, leaving you with a standard 250/400mm arca-swiss plate.
The 250/400mm plate features a UNC 1/4" and 3/8" attachment screws, which can be removed or supplemented. It also features laser engraved measurements along the side of the plate so you can quickly balance your lens.
Machined from aircraft-grade aluminium, hollowed out to reduce weight and finished in a black anodised coating to protect against bumps and scratches.
