PG-02 FG Full-Gimbal Head
Our PG-02 FG full-gimbal head combines three modular pieces: a Horizontal Base that provides the horizontal panning, a Vertical Arm that provides the vertical panning, and a sliding Cradle Clamp for optimal positioning of large telephotos. The PG-02 delivers precision smooth panning and rock solid lockup for any load. Store components separately for optimal portability when traveling; no tools required for setup or break down.
To assemble, slide the bottom of the Vertical Arm along the dovetail top surface of the Horizontal Base and secure with locking knob (lock inside edge of Vertical Arm at 110mm to laterally center your lens). Slide the Cradle Clamp down the Vertical Arm, lock into place, and load your lens. Our patented adjustable lever-release Cradle Clamp accepts all Arca-Swiss style plates except Arca-Swiss P0 plates and plates made by Novoflex.
Our TVC-33 tripod with leveling base delivers rock solid support for all gear. At a combined weight of only 4.9 pounds, no other combination can deliver equivalent load capacity at that weight.
TA-3-LB Leveling Base
Weighs only 11.5 ounces / 325 grams. The lightest leveling base in its class.
Holds up to 25 lbs. without slipping.
Leveling base incorporates our TA-3-VB video bowl. Leveling base can be removed, but video bowl can remain behind. Video bowl will accept any accessory/head that uses a 75mm video bowl.
Low friction polymer anti-jam plate secures your head solidly and accentuates vibration damping for your load.

Textured rubber grip on bottom of handle is easy to grasp firmly with or without gloves. Handle is only 2.9 inches long (74mm) and does not significantly impact your ability to drop the tripod to ground level.
