During the recent 2013 China P&E Show held from April 19th till April 22nd in Beijing at the China World Exhibition Hall, Sunwayfoto has introduced GH-Pro their first heavy duty geared 3-way head.
A move that very clearly denotes their targeting to the top / professional market segment.
GH-Pro is a direct rival, while at first glance appears very close in design, to the Arca-Swiss® D4 Geared head.
It seems to be build on top of, as well as topped by the successful DDH-03 Panning clamp.
There is no other information available at the moment about the head characteristics e.g. dimensions, load bearing capacity etc.

Since Sunwayfoto had chosen to introduce the head during the China P&E show, which addresses mostly the Asian market, there is no confirmation about the retail price and when (even if) the head will be available in the American and European markets.
