Really Right Stuff FG-02 FG overview

  • 1Description

The FG-02 FG Fluid-Gimbal Head with PG-CC Cradle Clamp from Really Right Stuff is a full-size fluid-gimbal tripod head designed to provide users with video quality fluid pans while tracking and photographing moving subjects.

An innovative and original design, the FG-02 is recommended for users wishing to capture photo or video of moving subjects with smooth, shake-free, uninhibited movement. With a load capacity of 50 lb the FG-02 has the ability to support large camera and lens combinations, but is limited to a maximum load capacity of just 15 lb when the maximum effects of the fluid mechanisms are required. The fluid rotators also feature 3 selectable levels of dampening, allowing the user to choose how much resistance is necessary for their needs. Of course, the mechanisms also feature an "off" setting for those who do not require the fluid movement at all.

The FG-02's design consists of two arms that control the rotation and swing of the cameras position. The base arm is connected directly to the integrated base rotator, which features a laser-engraved 360° scale for accurate horizontal positioning, while the vertical arm, which mounts to the base arm via Arca-type clamp, may be positioned with the assistance of a laser-engraved millimeter scale. The vertical arm also features an adjustable rotator with engraved 360° markings and a lever-lock equipped Arca-type cradle clamp for mounting and dismounting your camera and lens foot.

Pivots 360° on both the horizontal and vertical plane
Lever-release Arca-type compatible quick release cradle clamp

    FG-02 FG Fluid-Gimbal Head with PG-CC Cradle Clamp is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it ;) i got the RRS Gimbal FG-02-FG with the Cradle clamp, and i must say i love the look and the feel of it as my 600mm sits on it , very smooth, i used my RRS gimbal out in the desert for the 1st time , sat waiting for 4 hours for little Owls to come out of their hole,in temperatures of 48-50c, when they did , i never missed a shot with the RRS gimbal, moves very smooth for the flying shots , love the fluid action too, as if u let go of your camera, it don't fall down hitting your tripod , i got the TVC-34L at the same time both are just great , added a photo of the 1st day using the RRS gimbal in the desert , just a shame that the Gimbal and tripod don't come with bags , as they cost a bit to buy ..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I spent a lot of time going back and forth between this FG-02 and the non-fluid PG-02. To be fair, initially I was planning to purchase the PG-02. But as of this writing, there's a huge waiting list on the revamped PG-02, and because of time constraints on my end, I ended up biting the bullet to go for the FG-02. While I obviously don't have the PG-02 to compare against, but the FG-02 really satisfies all my requirements for a good gimbal head. I'm primarily a stills guy, but I still appreciate the option to damp when I need to. I find that the damping helps a lot when I don't have the time or patience to find the exact balancing point of my gear on the gimbal. The damping also helps tremendously when I need to manual focus. Indeed, I find for my purpose, damping really helps with my manual focus work. Given that I'm a stills guy, I think only the 1st level damping is enough, but I can see why for video guys, all damping levels will be appreciated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Bought this for super-tele work and landscapes. � Before the super-tele and landscape jobs I put it to work supporting a spotting scope. �When the minimum damping is turned on the spotting scope stops wherever I put it and stays there. �Just push to the thing I want to view and let go, it just stays on target. �Very nice! Super build quality, no rough edges that I could find. �A nice bonus is the Allen wrench in the base, captured by little-bitty magnets... Off to Africa to try the super-tele and the landscapes...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Half Baked Cake The problem with this head is the Cradle Clamp is not geared so as to make balancing the camera/lens quick and easy. At this price, RRS could have designed in gears to move the Clamp back and forth. My "Nikon D810/Battery Pack/200mm F2 lens" would be much easier to balance is RRS would have done a complete job. I presume they prefer to spit it out at the end.
