GH-300T also features two axes for panning: a 72-clickpoint panning base just below the camera mounting plate for perfectly aligned panoramic images, and a second 360-degree panning base at the tripod mounting base for horizontal panning and following subjects in motion.
With a locking force rated for over 17.5 lbs., GH-300T supports standard and large zoom lenses with impressive security. Its universal, 38mm quick release system with clamp knob and safety pin is compatible with other 38mm systems and allows for micro adjustments forward and backward while providing a steady center of gravity and no worries of accidental release. GH-300T provides smooth movements with impressive ergonomic control, thanks to its anodized center ball and Grip Position Release system. The GPR System with pistol grip-style handle lets you unlock, reposition and lock gear into place with ease. Depression of the handle allows 360-degrees of panning movement and -32 to +90-degrees of side-to-side tilt and -8 to +90-degree back to front tilt movement all round. It instantly locks into place by simply releasing the handle.
Its Friction Control System allows you to modify the level of resistance on the ball to accommodate changing equipment weight. GH-300Ts handle also rotates 360 degrees to one of 8 positions for maximum comfort while shooting.
