Tilt and pivot your camera in three-dimensional space with the Leofoto G4 Pro Geared Head, which combines the advantages of a ball head and a 3D tilt head in one compact system. When both X- and Y-axes are open, one can move the camera freely but, as opposed to a ball head, the X- and Y-axis movements can also be made individually. If one of these axes is fixed, movements can be performed with even more precision.
The design of this head puts the center of rotation of X and Y- tilts in the same place, making the pivoting radius of these movements very small, thus allowing users to maintain perspectives during readjustment. The self-locking shock absorption feature for the swivel function allows for near total compensation of the camera's weight. In addition to manual operation, the G4 Pro also offers the precision of separate gear-driven vertical/horizontal movements when the locking levers are fixed, with quick release clutches for fast, large adjustments.
Another notable feature is the separate 360° panning on the base of the head as well as the geared panning on the clamp. The bottom section allows for camera alignment. Two spirit levels, arranged at 90° angles underneath the upper panorama adjustment, are sufficiently visible to facilitate effective leveling, even from a low viewpoint.

This geared head is solid and well built, the one thing is annoying the ability to use the geared knobs when the head is way far at both ends, they struggle moving the head from 0 degree flat to 90 degree when the camera is attached (Canon R5 with 100mm Macro).
