The Lightweight Multi-Row Pano Elements Package offer a more compact and lighter option for multi-row panorama setups, for those who use smaller and lighter camera setups such as Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) or any number of mirror-less systems, including those will APS-C and full-frame 35mm size sensors. These cameras are dimensionally smaller, as are their lenses (generally) and require less extension of the horizontal and vertical arms for centering as well as movement clearance. The lighter weight also allows the use of the same panning clamp component in the vertical axis, resulting in a much lower overall package weight for a complete multi-row panorama setup.
Like the other Multi-Row Pano Elements kits, this setup combines the components of a single-row panorama package (panning clamp, nodal slide) with horizontal and vertical offset rails and a vertical tilting axis. The same adjustability for lens centering exists, but in a smaller scale. With complete laser-engraved 2.5-degree scales on the pan and tilt axes, and a built-in level on the horizontal components, this package is ready to setup on top of your leveling base or ballhead via its built-in dovetail and be shooting in just seconds.
The PC-PRO Panning clamp is designed to offer precision horizontal panning as a versatile built-in or modular accessory. Combining our traditional screw-knob style clamp jaw with a lockable 360-degree panning bearing, the PC-PRO is a robust yet lightweight panning solution for more convenient single-row panorama shooting. Like all of our screw-knob clamps, the PC-PRO offers smooth fine-tuning of the rail within the jaw, making precise 1mm movements to a no-parallax point as easy as possible. Screw-knob clamps also offer greater compatibility for tolerances on Arca-Swiss plates, expanding compatibility for brands that may not have the same level of precision as a Really Right Stuff dovetail (+/- 0.005"). A second PC-PRO acts as the vertical tilt axis in this package, providing the same precise rotation and 2.5-degree precision with independent locking for most small and mid-sized camera systems at any angle.
The MPR-192 and CRD-Rail components offer solid strength at minimal weight, and provide the necessary adjustability for lens centering over the horizontal axis. The components separate into 3 pieces via quick-release for compact storage together or apart.
