The GP-CB package combines the standard MPR-CL II nodal slide with our rock-solid GP-CB reaplcement clamp bar for the Gigapan EPIC Pro, providing an all-in one conversion kit for using Really Right Stuff gear along with the GigaPan.
Our custom GP-CB Bar completely replaces the stock Camera Mounting Platform that comes with the GigaPan EPIC Pro robotic camera mount. This expands the usefulness of the EPIC Pro by allowing you to use your Really Right Stuff nodal slides and camera plates for mounting, and a higher degree of both precision adjustment and vibration resistant stability thanks to the use of CNC-machined aircraft aluminum in place of the original extruded metal plate.
The GP-CB bar features two deep safety stop grooves, giving you maximum fore/aft adjustability for the nodal slide without the danger of falling out of the clamp. The clamp jaw is operated with a top/bottom knob for easy one-handed operation, and features two laser-engraved reference marks for high-visibility positioning relative to your no-parallax point.
The MPR-CL II is our second-generation "standard" nodal slide rail with integral clamp. At 7.4" long, the MPR-CL II provides no-parallax point positioning for non-collared lenses from 16mm and up on a full frame camera. The built-in screw-knob style clamp allows mounting a camera body fitted with any Really Right Stuff camera base plate or L-plate, with center reference marks for precise alignment. A built-in spirit level at the front end provides high-visibility leveling indication. A laser-engraved scale on either side allows for precise positioning relative to the reference mark in the clamp below, on the GP-CB clamp bar.
Improved precision for camera and lens positioning compared to the stock GigaPan bar
Easy-to-use lock knob provides confident locking grip on the rail with just two fingers
Two deep safety stop grooves, giving you maximum fore/aft adjustability for the nodal slide
Stonger and stiffer bar (machined from 6061 T6 aluminum) offers more vibration resistance with no added weight (269g vs. the stock 271g)
