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 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New toy Holds my D850 with a 28-300 without an issue, also used several smaller lenses. Solid construction, compact and lightweight. I've created multi-row panos of 400,000 pixels in size quite easily. For leveling, I just mount it directly on the ball-head on the tripod. Still struggling with small parallax error on the upper row of multi row panos. I guess I need some more work fine-tuning the nodal-point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job(mirrorless user) I purchased this as an alternative to gimbal head and it does the job, holds my A7III and 100-400, panning and tilting isn’t super smooth probably since I’m close to the weight limit but for my needs(very light use) it’s perfect, small and light, pretty much fits in my pocket.
