Really Right Stuff PC-LR Overview

The PC-LR Round Panning Clamp from Really Right Stuff is an Arca-type compatible dovetail equipped, 360° panning base that features a lever-release equipped Arca-type clamp.

A useful accessory for panoramic and landscape photographers, the PC-LR base allows the user to rotate their camera 360° on top of a tripod, ball head, or other support. The base may be attached to a support or Arca-type equipped ball head via the integrated Arca-type dovetail, a 3/8"-16 threaded socket, or a 1/4"-20 threaded socket.

When in use, the rotation of the mounted camera may be accurately monitored via a laser engraved degree scale which features markings in 2.5° increments. When the photographer decides on a stopping point the rotation may be locked by an integrated screw knob. The clamp also features a diameter of 2.9", a total height of 1.4", and includes a single bull's-eye bubble level for accurate leveling.

Great Clamp

Works nicely with the tripod...excellent for landscape use.

Very nice panning clamp

The panning clamp is very well built. You can clamp it in your existing arca ball head clamp or replace your existing clamp with it. It works great for pano shots but a little sticky for video. You really should be using a fluid head for video anyway but it works in a pinch.

Another quality tripod part from Quality company

This is truly a quality mounting clamp that other manufacturers wish they came up with first. It is a bet pricey but it does what it is design to do and more. It works real well with other RRS mounts.

Freedom and stability

The Really Right Stuff tools, together with the camera, helps the photographer to overcome the distance between himself and the motif and fulfill his vision. The impeccable way RRS designs and crafts their equipment offers the photographer free hands and stability at the same time. That being said, I don’t think RRS gear makes me a better photographer, but I enjoy their company on my photographic journey, an enjoyment that might lead to better photographs in the future.

RRS Panning Clamp is awesome!

I am an advanced photographer who has redirected the focus to landscapes and travel, away from portraits and weddings. This clamp has made panos so much easier than either handholding or just releasing the tension on my RRS ballhead. You pay a little more for RRS clamps over other vendors but with RRS you know you are going to get quality!

Another First Class Product From RRS

By John
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-04

This clamp is like all their products, Very well made! It pairs perfectly with the TA-2U Leveling base. I love the lever release clamp. It's super smooth and just a little pressure with the locking knob, locks everything down. With the integrated dovetail, it mounts right on their leveling base. To be honest, I haven't tried any other manufacturers panning clamp. I bought this one because, like all the other products I have from RRS, I knew the quality would be second to none. It may cost a little more than other clamps, but you won't be disappointed.

The best panoramic clamp

By Chien Huan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-05

This RRS panoramic lever clamp is the only one clamp having both panoramic function and lever clamping function in the market. The USA made quality of this RRS clamp is undoubtedly firm and reliable and precisely manufactured. I use this product on my electronic filming slider so the camera thereon can be securely fitted without sway or play and be oriented to parallel to the sliding direction precisely. The panoramic locking knob of this clamp performs a very strong lock function so I don't need to worry about inadvertent rotation of the camera even it's is tilted or vertical. The only one shortage is the very high price.

I'd like to attach the PC-LR to the top of a Nodal Ninja RD-16 II which has a 3/8"-16 center and two 1/4"-20 holes. Are those 1/4"-20 holes on the bottom of the PC-LR and would I need matching studs or do they come with the PC-LR?
Asked by: Robert
Boyd (Staff) provided good answers. I would add that is you go to the Really Right Stuff website you could find all the tech details about this item. Since the Nodal Ninja RD-16 II is already a panning head, you might consider looking for a quick-release clamp to fit whatever camera mounting plates you use, that you can mount on the RD16, instead of stacking a second panning clamp.

I have an RRS BH-40 ballhead and RRS TV24L tripod. is this clamp better than adding a leveling base?
Asked by: Jamison
The Really Right Stuff PC-LR Round Panning Clamp with Lever-Release Release is solely a panning clamp to go on top of a head or the like. This does not offer any leveling. However if your goal is to easily pan on a level plain, this can easily do that. This would go on top of your ball head, and your ball head would effectively be your leveling base.

can this be used with a Wimberley 100 monopod gimbal head?
Asked by: vicki
While I do not own the Wimberley head you are asking about, I see no reason why you could not make it part of that set up, given the Arca-Swiss plates top (female) and bottom (male). But, I would question why you would want to use the RRS panning attachment with monopod (or, a monopod head on a tripod, but maybe this one is useful on a tripod). The RRS panning action is smooth, but also offers some resistance to unintended movement, even when not locked. It is designed to allow for precision panning, as in taking panoramic image sets. Thus is would usually be mounted on a tripod not a monopod. In my simple set up I add a Kirk LRP-1 Multipurpose Rail, and an "L" bracket on my camera to allow me to set the frame either vertical or horizontal. With the added rail, one can set the camera lens to pivot around its zero-parallax point, making panorama stitching easier, minimizing software required distortions. I will be using this set up with my recently acquired PeakDesign Travel Tripod.

Can this be used for vertical single-row panoramas? I'll be picking up a RRS 3-series tripod and BH-55 head. I have a 5D IV with at most an EF 135mm f/2 L lens. I already have the RSS L-bracket. So wondering if I could drop the ball head into one of the 90-degree slots and then be able to do a vertical pano with this item along with the MPR-CL-II nodal slide. Or, is this only designed for single-row horizontal panos?
Asked by: Ricky
It can work for how you intend to use it.

question

Any word on whether or not the RRS PC-LR and the Kirk BH-1 are compatible? I've asked reps from both companies and have not been given a definite yes/no. Thanks!
Asked by: Adam R.
Although the quick release clamp on the BH-1 can be unscrewed to reveal a 3/8 thread which can then fit the PC-LR, there are no tests we're aware of that confirm that they are completely compatible. Your results may vary.

The top plate by itself is sold in two lengths, 60mm and 80mm. What's the clamp length on this assembly and will it hold 50lbs?
Asked by: Michael
The clamp length is 60mm. There's no spec on load capacity for this accessory though a similar release system on the BH55 claims a 50lb load limit. With that said I would not look to load it up with that much weight.
