GKPF Katana Cradle Clamp Overview
The ProMediaGear GKPF Katana Cradle Clamp is a replacement Arca-Swiss clamp that can be attached to the Katana or the Katana Pro Gimbal Head. It also works with other gimbal heads with a 1.5-inch width.
This Arca-swiss cradle clamp is larger compared to the GKJr Katana Pro Cradle Clamp. Both are lightweight, durable and built-to-last.
This cradle clamp is made of T6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and is built from a solid aluminum block. It is lightweight, durable, and built to last.
Proudly made in the USA!
I was a bit hesitant before buying this Gimbal because the look and unprofessional / unsatisfactory display on the website by the “PMG” so I put it aside for sometime hopping that I will be able to attend a trade show to see if in flesh but when I realize that I can not buy my favorite gimbal of all time The Jobu Black Widow HD I gambled my money and took the chance in this ugly thing 😉
Well from the moment I have open the box I spotted a Beautiful craftsmanship a. Cold lamp of metal like the Da Vinci engineered sculpture, A beautiful work of art a priceless acquisition that I am enjoying looking at it , touch and fill, It feels almost therapeutic.
I have done two projects and it has performed fantastically well , I have not had any issues so far . I will be testing again in my road trips to the Air Show’s and this winter but my prediction is that it is her to stay for a very long time and serve me in all my future projects.
There are few things that I will have love to see it hopefully in the next generation of gimbal and that is A taller vertical arm or at least optional taller arm for adding a second camera as I often like to have a zoom wide angle for close up video etc. even a binoculars as most people that do wildlife photography or similar they do carry additional equipment:)
So if May I say that I now proudly own 4 Katana Pro gimbals !
If you have an expensive gear sometime you have to have a beautiful way to show it in display or to be useful and practical in the field or studio:)
This cradle is a brilliant addition to our Tomahawk side kick. it fits like a dream being Acra-Swiss and just love the feel of these over-sized knobs. Very highly recommended it !!
