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 PG-02 Pano-Gimbal head, 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.
360-degree smooth panning base contains two types of bearings and damping grease for a smooth, consistent panning action
Precision laser-engraved 2.5 degree panning scale and millimeter horizontal arm scale
Laser-engraved axis cross-hair for accurate pano centering
CNC-Machined from solid 6061 T6 aluminum for high strength with minimal weight
Large rubber panning lock knob for quick and easy locking
180mm offset from panning axis provides maximum adjustability for PG-02 Vertical Arm component
Standard 3/8"-16 mounting socket, machined from high quality stainless steel for superior strength and minimal wear
