PG-02 HB: Pano-Gimbal Horizontal Base


In Stock

The PG-02 HB is one of two major components that make up our PG-02 Pano-Gimbal heads. The HB horizontal base forms the horizontal panning axis, and provides the main support arm and offset for the PG-02 VA Vertical Arm component, and thereby the various clamp mounting options that are available.

Like most tripod heads, the PG-02 HB mounts to a tripod platform via a standard 3/8"-16 threaded socket, and shares its panning base size with our BH-55 ballhead to match the Versa 3 tripod platform dimension. Unlike a ballhead panning base however, the PG-02 HB offers a more smooth and consistent panning bearing, consisting of two types of roller and ball bearings and special damping grease for silky-smooth action.

When combined with the vertical arm in a fully configured, the PG-02 HB Horizontal base provides the ultimate in smooth gimbal support for large telephoto lenses (200mm+) and precise and repeatable alignment for multi-row panorama shooting.
