ProMediaGear GKJr Katana Pro Overview
The ProMediaGear GKJr Katana Pro gimbal head was created to provide the ultimate marriage between size, weight, and functionality. The Katana Pro supports any lens. Yet, it is portable enough to be carried through any jungle. It only weighs 2.4 lbs which are perfect for any travel.
ProMediaGear manufactures the Katana Pro out of aircraft-grade T6061 aluminum. The engineers designed the tripod to be durable for all kinds of shoot. With precision in mind, the product is precision sealed and maintenance-free. The bearings are long-lasting, making them perfect for long-term use.
This gimbal head features an independent pan and tilt knob. The knob is large enough for easy adjustment. Photographers can quickly lock and unlock the knob at all times, even when wearing gloves. The included Arca-compatible cradle is perfect for long telephoto lenses up to 600mm. It easily attaches to the camera with precision and security.
Besides that, the smooth fluid movement allows you to quickly control the camera. Once attached, the camera and lenses would feel like it is an extension of your body.
The ProMediaGear GKJr Katana Pro connects to any tripod with a standard 3/8-16 thread. But it is better suited with ProMediaGear carbon fiber tripods.

This gimbal just oozes quality. I am using it with a Sony A9ii with the Sony 200-600 zoom. Once you set the combo to the balance point it is like magic. Effortless movement and stays where you want it to stay. This is the first Gimbal I have ever owned and I feel like I have started with the best. I don't know how you could improve this. I bought the B stock due to the price difference and I had to really look this over to find any flaws in the finish. It has three very very small areas where the black finish has been worn or scratched off. These "flaws" will happen is use so they don't bother me at all. Functionally, it's perfect. I debated long and hard between the Wimberly and Katana GK Jr. I feel like I made the right choice. Not only that, it looks cool.
