Sunwayfoto is about to expand in a new market segment with a new product. So here is a sneak peak of their heavy duty Carbon Fiber Gimbal head under evaluation.
These are some photos of the pre-production sample that is going under extensive stress tests and evaluation before it hits the market selves.
|Sunwayfoto GH-01 Carbon fiber Gimbal Head top rotator with vertically placed friction/lock knob|

A robust panning base with a thick J arm made of carbon fiber. The rotators, swinging arm, cradle and knobs are all CNCed from high density Aluminium.
Precision and quality fitting all over without any plastic or rubber parts whatsoever. Nonetheless, as a pre-production model coming out of the drawing board, there are some issues, but far less than expected which will be handled very easily by Sunwyafoto engineers before the product hits the market.
|The design is classic but with innovative hints on the upper rotator, cradle and knobs that makes GH-01 differentiate from Wimberley® clones flooding the market.|
