Description

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.

G4 Pro Four way geared head

Finally got to use my G4 Pro Geared Head. Build quality is amazing and the fine adjustment gears are extremely smooth and responsive.
Well worth every penny a must have!

Excellent geared head at a great price

I'm a real estate photographer, and I've used the Benro GB3WH and Leofoto GW-01 previously and liked both. However, this head is on a different level. It's smooth, precise, and easy to use. I love it! Nevertheless, I will recommend one improvement. Please make the Y-axis lock (the one above the pan lock) repositionable to get it out of the way. My Y-axis lock knob is nearly parallel to the floor when locked, which places its lever directly over the pan lock lever. On more than one occasion, I accidentally released the Y-axis lock while attempting to unlock the pan lock by feel (without looking at the knobs). This allowed the camera to fall forward quickly in the head. This change would make this head nearly perfect.

Precisa e robusta!

Ottimo prodotto, costruito con cura, robusta e precisa non fa rimpiangere l'originale Arca Swiss D4 (che possiedo) costando meno della metà

Excellent so far

This is my first geared head, and I’ve only had a couple of weeks, but so far I’m very happy.

Nicely made, moves smoothly in all directions and handles very well. I’ve made a number of successful Sun and Moon images using it and it’s transformative for working at longer focal lengths compared with the ball head I was using previously.

It's quite happy working at relatively steep angles (70 degrees as shown in the photo), although most of the adjustment controls end up on the far side of the head (not a problem for me).

Smooth with one flaw

The bubble levels on this head are pretty useless. They don't move like they should and I'm not sure they are accurate when they do move. Other than the bubble levels, I am very satisfied. The locking knobs are secure. The gear knobs adjust smoothly. It is a relatively compact head compared to the types like the Leofoto GW-01.
