The Katana Junior Aluminum Gimbal Head from ProMediaGear provides balanced support for large telephoto lens and camera combinations up to 50 pounds, yet weighs in at just 2.4 pounds itself. Machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, the head offers independent locking adjustments for both pan and tilt movements, and sealed, maintenance-free bearings. The Arca-Swiss clamp mount makes it compatible with most mounting plates. Estimated street price: $499. Contact: ProMediaGear, promediagear.com.
