Product Description

M-3.6 Mongoose Gimbal Action Head 
M-3.6 Mongoose Gimbal Action Head The Mongoose M-3.6 builds on our popular M-3.5 with a number of significant refinements:

1) an added dead bolt style lock to both axis for those occasions where you want to carry a mounted lens over your shoulder, change a tele-extender, or remove the Mongoose from the tripod;

2) the tension control is now for tension control only to increase pad life;

3) a stainless steel tension screw for increased strength; a four lobe knob for easy grip and compatibility with the low mount;

4) a slightly smaller form for easier packing.

Extremely smooth and fast action with all telephoto lenses including the really big lenses like the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM, 600mm f/4.0, 500mm f/4.0, and smaller. Full gimbal action with easy to reach tension and lock controls, adjustable CAM action quick release fits ALL popular ARCA style plates. A light weight sleek shape makes it easy to pack or carry, even in a large pocket.

Weight: 1.353 lbs. or 614 grams. Packing dimensions: Upper arm L; 7.6"; Lower arm L 5.3"; Depth 2.75" at widest point (knob); Profile, 1.8" at thickest point. NOTE: There are UPGRADE OPTIONS FOR CURRENT MONGOOSE OWNERS.

  1. Super (light) head 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2014

    I do have my Mongoose head for 3 months now,
    The first day I did use it was on a tawny owl overhere in the Netherlands.

    I was able to get tack sharp images at only 1/25 of a second. This was a proof to me that a very light head can be rock steadý, although I have to say thanks to the owl either for sitting still.

    What I also do love are the locks to both axis, I do use them every time.

    It is so easy at building up your rig, hang on your lens, then add a converter and finally the camera, when ready shooting you can use it in the opposit way.
    The other advantage is that I am able to leave the tension control knobs in my preferred position.

    I do use the Mongoose and a Canon 500mm II series.
    On the Canon 500 I do have the CRX-5 foot, the only foot you can adjust and really helps you finding balance in the Canon series II tele lenses.

    I know I have found the ultimate head for me.
    I do find balance with my gear(with and without extenders) in all circumstances. It doesn't mather if the head is in a level position or not, although level is preferred.
