Description:

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!


The Katana Junior is manufactured out of hard anodized, scratch-resistant 6061 aluminum alloy and CNC precision machined in the USA. Designed with precision sealed, maintenance free, bearings for long life and durability to enable the heads smooth movements. 


Made in the USA by photographers for photographers! We pride ourselves in being experienced photography professionals and design gear we would use. There's nothing more important than our customers' satisfaction. So, What Are You Still Waiting For? Order Your Own Premium PMG Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod Today!

This has to be the most impressive Gimbal Head I have ever held in my hands. Built like a tank, yet light and workable. It is also beautiful, like a piece of Art. A great little brother to the Katana, light enough for bush planes and long hikes. I love this gimbal.

I bought this head to use on Safari in Africa with my 150 -600 sigma sports lense. It preformed superbly. I have used it since returning home and still love it. The light weight makes it easy to carry. I would recommend this gimble head.

Mr.
Very impressed. I have previously used Jobu and Really Right Stuff gimbals. This is much better built then the Jobu head and much lighter and less fidddly than the RRS head. I am impressed with the design and build quality of this gimbal head, it is incredibly smooth to operate, yet very rigid when locked down. Unless you are using an 800mm lens, I don't know why you would want any other gimbal head.

I received my Katana Jr gimbal head very quickly in-spite of a backorder situation at the time. I was hesitant to make the purchase due to my obsessive concern about low friction behavior and the locking mechanisms. Your assurance of a no questions asked 30 day return policy took care of those concerns. I have now had several months to use the Katana Jr with both a Canon 600mm F4 and a Sigma 150-600 Sport. I have to say that both of the rotational axes are as close to frictionless as I have found on any gimbal, including Wimberly. No stiction and no mechanical play or looseness is detectable. Absolutely remarkable! This gimbal sets the standard for uncompromising excellence in performance. The fact that it is lighter and less expensive than the competition adds to its price benefit ratio. I have spent a professional career as a mechanical engineer and designer/builder. I am impressed! Thank you for a beautifully designed and manufactured product. Sincerely, Paul J Yarnall

Mr
Absolutely love the gimbal head. It balances my gear really well and the rotation is very smooth and noise free. Also because it is so light I do not think twice about throwing it into the backpack and taking off on a trek. Awesome product and I love it. Thank you.

I recently purchased this Gimbal head after seeing at the St. Augustine Birding and Photo Fest. I do not have experience with other gimbal heads but this one is extremely fluid, well built, lighter to carry than many and is very reasonably priced. I was with a pro photographer when we both saw this gimbal head and he liked it more than the several others that he has and was going to get this one. He liked it better than his Wimberly head.
