Leofoto PG-1 Lightweight Gimbal Tripod Head w/ Plate & Bag (Black/Camo Color)

Travel lightly with the Leofoto PG-1 Gimbal Head constructed from T6061 aluminum. The PG-1 enables you to capture fast-moving subjects with a large and heavy telephoto lens that you otherwise could not do manually holding the lens. The arm swings back and forth and can be locked down at the required angle. The camera platform, which is Arca-type compatible, has height adjustability to help balance a telephoto lens on the head. Future setups can be easily repeated because of the printed scale on the side of the swing arm. Also, on the side of the arm are 1/4"-20 sockets for accessories. The gimbal head can easily hold up to 55 lb of equipment and rotate a full 360° while keeping the horizon straight using the bubble level at the base of the head.

Panning base diameter: 60mm / 2.36in
Mounting hole: UNC 3/8"-16

Pg1 gimbal a step up in quality not price

I purchased the gimbal to pair with my monoscope and eventually a Canon RF 200-800 lens (back ordered) on a Canon R6 mark II camera.

So far it is great coupled with my monoscope on a Robus tripod.
The build is solid the knobs are pleasant to the hands and then tension available in all rotational axis is impressive.

Haven’t taken into outdoors yet, hoping the new lens shows.

It did require a 5-6” arc Swiss plate to balance my scope and I predict the super telephoto lens.

So far so good.

High quality Gimbal

What a bargain! As good or better than gimbals costing much more. Awesome bearings!

What all gimbals heads should be like

so similar to my other review, I have been using the Benro Gh-1 gimbal for some time now and i was never ever happy with it, Either it was spinning free or it was locked and unable to spin, Im a wildlife photographer so to have a gimbal like that made things extra difficult when trying to pan a bird.. Either to fast or to slow..
Getting in to a new camera system i wanted/needed something that was going to give me what i need.. I looked in to wimberly and was set on them for a long time, Research showed that most all of the gimbals out there are either locked or loose.. NOT what i wanted.
Fast forward to now, I found a gimbal similar to this one at 250$ more and was going to get that one until i found that lepfoto had basically the same head.
purchased this one and i couldnt be happier. I have the ability to apply tension with one of the tension knobs in very small increments allowing me to adjust my speed. Windy days? i can tighten it up a little to help combat the wind and when there is no wind i can loosen it.
All and all im very happy with this gimbal and would and will recommend it to everyone and as an added plus is the 30 day satisfaction and the 10 year!! You cant beat

Great Gimbal at a Good Price

I saw a review on many gimbals and I was impressed with the weight, design, load limits, price and the fine tension adjustments. Very impressed with a Nikon Z9 and 500f4G balancing well on the gimbal and the nice “free spin” rotation of the setup!! I wanted to wait on the new products that are being released in a month or so (PG-2/PG-3), but couldn’t find any information on them. Although they were shown at the CO+23 in Japan, per customer support. Happy with the performance of PG-1 for gimbal for the long prime lenses !

Love this gimbal head. I was ready to pull the trigger on a Wimberley WH-200, but I watched a couple reviews on the Leofoto PG-1.
I’m getting up in age and was attracted to the 2.2 lbs, which is lighter than the Wimberley (even though it is aluminum) and the affordable price, compared to the Wimberley. The Leofoto is solid, smooth, and has a micro adjustable locking system. Very happy with my purchase.
