Introducing the Leofoto PG-1 Gimbal Head, a robust yet lightweight swing head designed for precision and ease of use. This gimbal head, with its distinctive camouflage colours, is perfect for keeping a heavy telephoto lens in balance while swiftly tracking moving objects. It’s especially effective when mounted on a sturdy tripod, providing stability and control in every shot.

Please note that cameras shown in product images are for illustrative purposes only and are not included.

More Information

The Leofoto PG-1 is equipped with an L-shaped horizontal panning arm marked with a 0-360 degree disc, and a freely moving vertical tilting arm, also with a degree disc. This unique design allows you to position your camera exactly as you want it on a tripod. It’s compatible with all Leofoto tripods and other brands with a 3/8-inch tripod screw. The camera holder can be locked firmly in place with the strong clip lock, and the built-in spirit level ensures your tripod stays level.

One of the standout features of the Leofoto PG-1 is its universal Arca-Swiss quick release. Any Arca-Swiss compatible quick release plate can be attached to it, and a 100mm long plate is supplied as standard. The robust control buttons allow you to lock the camera combination to the quick coupler swiftly. Whether you use a long or short lens plate, the degree scale on the quick coupler makes it easy to find the perfect balance.

Despite its width of 76mm, length of 200mm, and height of 245mm, the Leofoto PG-1 weighs only 1 kilo thanks to its “skeleton structure”. But don’t let its lightweight fool you - it doesn’t compromise on strength

Swing head or gimbal head
A swing head, also called a swing head or gimbal head, is designed to provide complete freedom of movement. The tripod head supports a combination of camera and lens at their natural balancing point so they don't tilt involuntarily. In fact you hang the camera with (telephoto) lens in a rocking bracket, hence the name gimbal head. A Leofoto PG-1 gimbal head or swing head is ideal for sports photographers, nature photographers and wildlife photographers. The 'swing arm' moves smoothly, so you can easily find the right balance.
