I ordered this leveling head for my TR344. I didn't expect you'd send me the one with leveling spirit. It's a surprise gift to me. Thanks!!
I recently got the leveling ball for my tripod. Prior to receiving it, I would have to achieve level by lowering a leg or two, in increments, which is not ideal. Now, all I have to do is get close to level with the legs and finish off with the leveling ball. What a time saver! This device is a life saver when trying to achieve level with the Katana Jr. The Jr. has a nice big leveling bubble that is easy to look down on so the leveling ball is a cinch to adjust with. No more wonky horizons when panning. The picture of the eagle that is attached was taken with the Katana Jr. And the leveling ball. I snapped off 10-15 frames before the eagle disappeared and I think at least 3/4 were sharp. I owe a lot to the Katana Jr. and now, also, to the leveling ball.
Thanks for another great product ProMediaGear.
P. S. I have reviewed a number of ProMediaGear products but ProMediaGear does not sponsor me nor have they provided any demo units. I purchased and own the PMG gear I have. All opinions are mine, accurate and honest. So far, every product I have purchased from PMG has met or exceeded my expectations for quality and performance.
Turely a must have for the GKJr or itâ€™s big brother GK. Speed and ease of set up is a no brainer. Quality machined product, I expect nothing less from PMG. Good job boys! Only drawback we lost the bag hook... :)
I have been researching carbon fiber tripods and leveling heads for a while now. These tripods are not inexpensive, and I wanted to make the best purchase possible. The reviews on the internet highly rates these tripods along with other tripods in the same class. I finally settled on promediagear for a couple reasons. 1) The staff were prompt in answering any silly question I might have. 2) For me they are local; I received my purchase quickly and I know if I need a repair, replacement part or an accessory that will happen quickly also. 3) I wanted a tripod that stood over 5ft tall. That is a personal preference for me as I stand 6'2" tall. Bending down to look into my camera wasn't an appealing option for me if I wanted to photograph from eye level. And quite frankly I have taken photos sitting down without the legs extended. 4) Finally, this tripod is a solid build. It is the sturdiest tripod I have ever owned and I dont think much will move it. With the leveling ball head it has been a cinch to operate. I purchased this tripod to go with me to Italy where I am currently photographing around Cortina. With the group I am with it has been nicknamed "The Beast". I would recommend this tripod to anyone, but if its too big for your there are smaller versions that might fit your ticket.
