The PG-02 LR Pano-Gimbal Head with B2-LR II Lever-Release Clamp from Really Right Stuff is a full-size, dual-function tripod head designed to support DSLRs with up to a 600mm lens attached.
Designed as both a panoramic and gimbal head, the PG-02 is recommended for users wishing to capture single or multi-row panoramas with collared lenses or with a directly mounted camera. It can also be used as a full-size gimbal for DSLRs with large or small lenses up to roughly 600mm. The PG-02 is a reliable and stable support able to accurately shift position during panoramic capture or when tracking moving subjects, such as wildlife or birds in flight.
The PG-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 positioning when capturing single or multi-row panoramas. 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 side-mounted clamp for mounting and dismounting your camera and lens foot.
Although the PG-02 is primarily a still photography support, considerations for video users have also been made to make the head more accessible. On the top of the vertical side arm is an array of threaded accessory ports that can accommodate clamps, magic arms, and the direct mounting of LCD monitors, and microphones. The array features a 3/8"-16 female socket in the center which is surrounded by four 1/4"-20 female threads on the top, bottom, left, and, right.
