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 includes a screw-knob Arca-type quick release clamp and an integrated leveling 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 an 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.

This version of the PG-01 also includes an integrated leveling base built into the horizontal rotator. The inclusion of the base eliminates the need for users to purchase a separate leveling device or use with PG-01 with an additional ball head. The base is controlled by a precision-machined knob that provides the user with maximum locking power for a stable grip. Accurate leveling is achieved with the assistance of a built-in bubble level, which has been placed at the far-end of the horizontal arm.

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 Leveling Base is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well built but degrees off by 4-5. I have several heads and quick clamps from RRS and have always liked the quality of their products. This pano system is also wel build and thought-out BUT the degree markings on the vertical head are off by 4-5 and there is no-way to adjust the registration of the clamp to the laser-engraved scale. I contacted RSS about this and they said that was within the manufacturing tolerance?? So, 0 is not 0 but 4 and 90 is not 90 but 94 etc.? RRS response to me was to NOT trust the scale but the bubble level on the camera instead. So, I level the tripod and the pano-head, after all it has a wonderful little leveling devise on it. Place the camera on the Nodal slider and set the degree scale at 0 on the vertical arm. Except that whoops '0' is actually NOT '0'. So the camera is NOT actually horizontally lined up for the pano (camera in portrait mode). RSS's response seems odd as they added a beautiful leveler to the pano-head and bubble leveler nodal point slider. What is the point of all that when at the top you still need to add a 10 dollar bubble leveler to make sure the camera is level because the degree markings on the pano head has a 4 degree tolerance error? RRS response: I've confirmed that a few degrees off is within our acceptable range, due to the manufacturing tolerances involved with both the parts (multiple parts assembled means multiple tolerances stacked) as well as the nature of the laser-engraving process. Of course I know I can work around it but I find this 4-5 manufacturing tolerance surprisingly high. Their products are not inexpensive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product - highly recommended This item is well built, has excellent markings and works flawlessly. I use it on my Sirui T-025X tripod. Saved some dollars by purchasing DNR-120 nodal rail instead of the RRS rail. Item is light enough to lug around packpacking/climbing in the mountains.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my purposes If you're doing multi-row landscape panos with DSLR/mirrorless, normal focal lengths, and no objects in the near field, this is all you need. PS Photomerge is sophisticated enough to blend images perfectly. (Not true, however, if you're doing architectural or product photography you'll need to add the accessory for nodal adjustments.)
