The #GKJr. Katana Jr. Gimbal Head was created to provide the ultimate marriage between size, weight and functionality. The junior is able to support any lens, yet is portable enough to be backpacked through the jungle at just 2.40 lbs! The truss design manufactured out of rigid T6061 Aluminum required the PMG team of engineers to program the CNC machines to their limits. The Gimbal features an independent Pan and Tilt knob large enough to be handled with gloved hands. An Arca Compatible cradle clamp nestles your camera plate or long lens mount with precision and security. The fluid type movements will allow you to quickly control your camera and lens combo as if it were an extension of your body. The bottom of the Katana Jr. is a standard 3/8-16 threaded tripod adapter. Treat yourself to one of the smoothest and lightest gimbals on the market today!
Built like a tank
With the expectation that the user will likely subject the Katana Junior to the rigors associated with the great outdoors, the head has been designed to be extra durable to ensure maintenance free operation. Its hard anodized aluminum coating makes the entire frame scratch and nick resistant, preventing the likelihood of creating reflections that might alert wildlife to your presence. Additionally, the head's fluid joints use sealed ball bearing cases which make them considerably less susceptible to corrosion or malfunction due to moisture, dirt, and debris. It is also worth noting that the Katana Junior is designed and constructed right here in the USA.
swift like a butterfly
From a functionality standpoint the Katana Junior functions the same as any common gimbal head, with fluid movement on both the 360° panning axis and the floating tilt. Both axes may also be locked separately via large aluminum control knobs which are easy to grip even when wearing gloves.Highlights
