- Nov 5, 2012A full gimbal mount might be close to what you are looking for. A lot of bird photographers use equipment designed to allow the lens to move in all directions for tracking birds as they move in all directions. I use a mounting system designed and sold by Really Right Stuff. here is a link to one of their gimbal setups: http://reallyrightstuff.com/ProductDesc.aspx?code=PG-02-LLR&type=4&eq=&desc=PG-02-LLR%3a-Pano-Gimbal-Head-with-LLR&key=itThey have all sorts of high quality, machined pieces that can be put together to do most anything. Drop them a line and they might have some suggestions.
