This is the Benro - GD3WH, I saw many users ask if we can provide this.
We hesitated a lot, as it's not designed by us. But at last, I persuade our boss.
If we can make it easier for our users, then we should help.
What's the difference between GD3WH and MSM Wedge?
GD3WH can be used to replace the MSM Wedge:
Its advantage is it can be controlled in 3 axes, and its high load capacity (6Kg).
Its disadvantage is, it's heavy. It weighs 740 grams.
The GD3WH will be ideal for landscape, microphotography, and astrophotography which require higher accuracy. So it is a reliable platform that can be shared between different gears! Including MSM Rotator.
I hope it helps, please let me know if you need any help on gears!
Move Shoot Move
An eye-opener. I love the Benro 3-way geared head. Great to use in all kinds of photography: macro, astrophotography, landscape. Very easy to micro adjust!
The Benro 3-way gear head makes it a breeze to polar align the MSM. A very worthwhile and time saving investment.
I bought this to replace the Wedge, and it's great for aligning to the CSP using the phone and PhotoPills, not only that it's great for landscape photography to get your compositions so precise, I'm so happy with this purchase.
A brilliant piece of kit for
Both astro and Pano photography.
Ease of use and precise movement.
I bought this product. This is not a recommendation, this is a must. This is what solved me a very big problem to calibrate the facility to Polaris in a very very very accurate way. The facility is very stable. It's worth every penny.
Best head ever owned
A must for astrophotography
I bougth the MSM hoping to shoot pictures of the MilkyWay in april Due to evening curfew that was not possible.
Did use it a few times, possitioning withe te laser is easy on the also deleverd geared head from Benro.
Haven't used it for timelapse yet.
I really love to use the Benro 3-way geared head with the MSM since it is very accurate and it now also serves as my to go to landscape tripod head as well. What is not offered by MSM is the extention accessory which will clear the 3-way geared head if you have a large tripod plate. Without hte extention the rotation knob will hit the plate and the head can not be mounted. I would be nice if this could be ordered directly from MSM since the pricing is very attractive.
Beautifully engineered, precise and a joy to use
This tripod head is fantastic for making small adjustments to a composition when using a long focal length lens. I bought this in conjunction with the MSM rotator so that I could perfectly align the tracker with Polaris and it makes it very easy. Will never go back to another ballhead for Astro.
