ProMediaGear PXC1 6-inch Arca-Swiss Type Nodal Rail with Integrated Clamp Overview
The ProMediaGear PXC1 6-inch Arca-Swiss Type Nodal Rail with Integrated Clamp has a double dovetail plate. It can be clamped and be used as a macro focusing rail. Besides that, it can also mount other accessories alongside its top plate.
The double dovetail is 3.5-inches long with an integrated Arca-Swiss clamp at the end. This mounts a camera at a crosswise position.
This nodal rail has laser-engraved center lines for you to use as a guide. The knob is just the perfect size too. It is not too large or not too small and is easy to use in any condition.
The PXC1 is made of a single T6061 aluminum. It is CNC machined and is lightweight and durable. It can surely carry any modern DLSR or mirrorless camera.
I ordered the PXC1 6 Inch Arca-Swiss Type Nodal Rail with Integrated Clamp so that I could create a workaround for something that Canon should have included with the RF 800mm lens. They don't make a tripod collar for that lens, so I "invented" one (sort of) by attaching an L bracket to the lens. It's not ideal, but it works. ProMedia Gear should invent and market one. Hint ;). Now I can use it on my Katrina JR gimbal head. It's not in "perfect balance", but at least I can now use it in a vertical orientation if I need to. It's well made, just like all of their products always are.
Top of the line gear. The best in durable camera equipment
I bought the gimbal head, which works GREAT for my long lenses with a lens foot, but then I couldn't use a camera with a regular plate like a ball head. The platform is rotated 90 degrees out. So I bought this and now I can use the gimbal natively and if I want to put a regular camera/plate on, I just put this attachment on the gimbal and can then mount the camera on it. I can also slide it back and forth a bit to find the right balance, or nodal point for the lens. Works great. I bought the short one and it's perfect for my uses.
Love the balance this provides perfect for him R5 and fluid head on 3 legged thing.
I found that I could not use the Sigma 100-400 mm F mount lens on gimbal tripod heads. This was due to the lens design that made it impossible to fit under normal circumstances. It could not clear the tripod head or gimbal head. The design with the integrated Arca-Type clamp (knob type) allowed the camera/lens combination to clear the gimbal head without any problems. I can now mount the lens on the camera without any difficulty at all. This is what I was looking for.
