At the moment I use Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod with Photo/Video Pan and Tilt Head 391RC2 to hold Canon EF 100-400mm lens. Even-though in most cases this stable, on the extreme end I do get blur. At the moment I just looked up Manfrotto stuff (sorry I sort of became their fan boy) found these bracket/support equipment:
- Telephoto Lens Support rather simple and affordable around £70
- Long Lens Monopod Bracket ideal solution with reasonable price of £165 however developed with monopod in mind
- SYMPLA Long Lens Support System - Complete Kit I believe that this would be cool equipment to have but darn price putting me off it £840
I also seen Benro stuff:
Any thoughts, recommendations to look for/keep in mind are more then welcome.
EDIT: At the moment got little help from friend and testing Manfrotto 3D Super-Pro Head This has better weight capacity 12kg/25.5lbs
