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 the 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

The absolute best there is

Sold my Wimberley for the Katana Jr. By far the best gimbal on the market..its light, looks awesome and has the smoothest bearings there is...absolutely zero regrets.
Pairs perfectly with my Promediagear TR423 tripod and the Promediagear 75mm bowl for leveling my gimbal.

Well built with the right features and for less money than you'd expect to pay for such a great gimbal. Very strong yet pretty light so it's easy to take into the field. Well thought out design that was obviously designed by pros for both pros and advanced enthusiasts.

Another Well Designed Product

This is my very first gimbal head. I will be using this, like many do, for wildlife photography. Although, it certainly has the build quality to leave it on the tripod all of the time. It's buttery smooth in operation, light for its size, and built like a tank. Yet, another great product (and I have a bunch of them) from ProMediaGear!

Amazing product!

Excellent Craftsmanship

Several of my friends had switched to the Katana Jr and raved about the build quality. I took advantage of the recent holiday discount and bought one. I've been using it for over a month and love it. Top notch product! It operates much smoother than my previous gimbal. I'm thrilled I made the switch.
