can I shoot portrait position as well as ...

can I shoot portrait position as well as landscape with this head?
Asked by: Dennis
Yes and No... If you are using a lens with a lens foot, typically the lens collar allows you to rotate around the lens, then YES. You would be able to quickly roll the camera over from landscape to portrait. However, if you are using a shorter lens or a lens that doesn't feature a rotation lens collar, then NO. If no, ProMediaGear manufactures the PXC2 Lens Plate that will clamp onto your Arca Compatible tripod plate mounted on to the camera body rather than the lens. To rotate to portraits with this configuration you would require an L-bracket.

Does this Katana head have a screw in the bottom so that I can attach it to my Gitzo series 5 tripod? If any adapter is needed what would it be?
Asked by: Larry
This will work with any regular tripod. Both the Gitzo Series 5 and the Katana use 3/8"-16; the tripod will have the male threads and the gimbal will have the receiving mount.
