Photographers looking for a high performance tripod head in a very small package will be thrilled with the Jobu Jr.3 Gimbal Kit with Swing-Arm HM-J2 from Jobu Design. This head has a one-piece hollow, cast, heat treated body making it extremely stiff. It is smaller, lighter, smoother and more compact than the earlier BWG-J2K head. Needle roller bearings allow smoother tilting under heavy loads and better adjustment of friction. Lockout force has been improved 200%, and overall durability has been improved in all aspects. The perfect travel companion, it has an overall profile of 9 x 8″ (22.86 x 20.32cm) and easily fits into the small pockets of your existing bags.
