Jobu Design PGH-1 Overview

  • 1Description

The Panoramic Gimbal Head from Jobu Design is constructed of CNC-machined billet aluminum to serve as a sturdy, precise device for executing panoramic or VR photography. Every pivot and adjustment point features laser-engraved, permanent scale markings in millimeters or degrees. This aids tremendously in capturing images that will later be stitched together. The anodized-black head features a gimbal-style design and premium knobs for strong, lockout securing of moving parts.

The horizontal arm of the Panoramic Gimbal Head rotates around the connection point to a tripod. The position of this panning arm is marked out every 7.5° for a full 360° of precise pan adjustment. A soft, rubberized control knob locks out the horizontal arm's position, and a nearby bubble level ensures that the head is flush with the horizon.

The vertical arm slides along a marked scale for adjusting the offset from the camera base to the center of the horizontal arm. The premium wing knob provides reliably strong locking of the vertical element's lateral position. There's another soft-touch control knob with roller bearings at the top of the vertical arm that allows you to adjust the camera's vertical tilt. Markings at this point are in 5° increments.

Attaching to the vertical arm via an Arca-style clamp, the included SF-CP1 Surefoot Clamping plate features a 0-100mm scale for effecting nodal point (forward & backward) adjustments for standard-size lenses (from fisheye to moderate telephoto). Photographers with longer lenses – those that employ tripod collars – should use a lens foot or a sufficiently long lens plate to find the nodal point of their lens.

Includes SF-BP1 camera mounting plate for smaller SLR and point & shoot cameras; a larger Arca-style plate is recommended for pro-size DSLRs to prevent twisting
