TobiasHjorth.com skriver bl.a.:
The all new designed Black Widow Mk II redefines the Jobu Design gimbal lineup with a lighter yet strong gimbal head aimed at photographers who’s either using 500mm lenses or similar size all the time or one who wants to travel light using any lens combo.
Compared to the old MK I the new edition features an all new design with more rigidity and stability without suffering from any weight penalty. In fact the Black Widow MK II is quite unique compared to the competition as it allows you to utilize and bigger workload while still maintaining smooth operation.
The first thing you´ll notice is the base which is larger and slightly redesigned. While the old model was very smooth the new equally smooth despite if being larger. The Black Widow is thankfully and still using the Arca Swiss type quick release in which you can choose from a huge number of lensplates etc. The list goes on basically – Its needless to say I find the Arca Swiss type much better than the Manfrotto type.
The lower profile of the base also help stability in the other end. The lower the better.
