Really Right Stuff PG-01 Pro overview

  • 1Description

The PG-01 Compact Pano-Gimbal Head from Really Right Stuff is an ultra-portable, lightweight tripod head offered in numerous configurations depending on the needs of the user. This version is considered the "base" model, featuring a screw-knob Arca-type quick release clamp and a flat rotating base with Arca-type dovetail compatibility.

Designed as both a panoramic and gimbal head, the PG-01 is recommended for users wishing to capture single or multi-row panoramas with non-collared lenses. It can also be used as a small gimbal support for cameras with medium telephoto lenses, or in layman's terms, lenses no larger than a traditional 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. With a load capacity of 8 lb, Really Right Stuff suggests using this head exclusively for mirrorless cameras or small DSLR's; users with larger gear should consider similar heads with higher weight capacities.

The PG-01'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 screw-knob equipped Arca-type clamp for mounting and dismounting your camera, extension plate, or nodal slide.

Additional technical features include a 3/8"-16 tripod mounting thread, an Arca-type dovetail integrated into the base rotator, a lightweight construction of just 1.1 lb, and an included 5/32 hex key with magnetic storage slot.

    Really Right Stuff PG-01 Pro reviews

    PG-01 Compact Pano-Gimbal Head with Screw-Knob Clamp and Flat Dovetail Base is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - strongly recommended! As always with RRS, a beautifully designed and manufactured product. I have a traditional gimbal (Jobu Design) which is big and heavy but very sturdy. The PG-01 from RRS is much lighter and disassemble for a much smaller footprint in the end. I am very happy to report that it is also very sturdy. I've tested it with a Sony A7rII with a Tamron 150-600 lens attached - works beautifully and perfectly. I'm mounting it on a Arca-Swiss P0 ballhead which allows me to do the leveling without any other device, or the more expensive PG-01 with a leveling base. Contrary to some other RRS products, I do not feel it is expensive for what it is. Strongly recommended!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The turning wheel is 3 degrees off. Pros: 1. Lightweight, high quality material 2. Well designed and very secure with my Nikon 14-24 mm + D610. Also with my Nikon 24-70 mm + D610. Yes, I have to turn the knob extra tight to avoid sagging. I would not use it for the setups any heavier . Great if traveling light is important to you. It is to me. Cons: 1. The vertical piece is not long enough to turn either of my lens mentioned above straight up to take a zenith shot with my settings 2. The turning wheel on vertical arm is 3 degrees off the mark. So my camera points 3 degrees up when I set the dial to 0 degrees. I can't really modify it since the lock mechanism inside is not exactly perpendicular with the 0 degree marking. You guessed it, 3 degrees off. 3. When I received my package, the original plastic bag was cut open and placed in a clear ziplock bag. I thought was odd. But everything looked high quality until I found out the defect. Most likely it was a return item. I'm quite disappointed with B&H for sending me a returned item.
