About this item

The Jobu Design PGH-KM1 Manfrotto-Compatible Panoramic Gimbal Head is constructed of CNC-machined billet aluminum to serve as a sturdy, precise device for executing panoramic or VR photography. The head includes a Sure foot adapter that accepts a wildly popular Manfrotto plate (not included), which enables you to quickly switch between using your camera with this head and mounting it on a tripod or using it handheld.

Every pivot and adjustment point features laser-engraved, permanent scale markings in millimeters or degrees. This aids tremendously in capturing images that will later be stitched together. The anodized-black head features a gimbal-style design and premium knobs for strong, lockout securing of moving parts.

The horizontal arm of the Panoramic Gimbal Head rotates around the connection point to a tripod. The position of this panning arm is marked out every 7.5 degree for a full 360 degree of precise pan adjustment. A soft, rubberized control knob locks out the horizontal arm's position and a nearby bubble level ensures that the head is flush with the horizon.

The vertical arm slides along a marked scale for adjusting the offset from the camera base to the center of the horizontal arm. The premium wing knob provides reliably strong locking of the vertical element's lateral position. There's another soft-touch control knob with roller bearings at the top of the vertical arm that allows you to adjust the camera's vertical tilt. Markings at this point are in 5 degree increments.

Attaching to the vertical arm via an Arca-style clamp, the included Manfrotto-compatible SF-CPM clamping plate features a 0-100 mm scale for effecting nodal point (forward & backward) adjustments for standard-size lenses (from fisheye to moderate telephoto). Photographers with longer lenses - those that employ tripod collars - should use a lens foot or a sufficiently long lens plate to find the nodal point of their lens.
