Top 10 ProMediaGear products you should check out

There are hundreds of ProMediaGear products available today and there are more to come. It is sometimes challenging to look for a product that is right for you. But do not worry, here are the top 10 ProMediaGear products that should get you started.

1. ProMediaGear TR344L Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod

The ProMediaGear TR344L Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod is the number one on this list for a reason. It is one of the most versatile tripods that ProMediaGear has to offer.

To start, it has a max height of 71 inches and load capacity of 60 lbs. This is more than enough for heavy lenses, large DSLRs, or lightweight mirrorless cameras. 

The legs are made of 10 layers of carbon fiber making it lightweight and durable. It is also only 23.8 inches when folded making it a great travel tripod.

2. GKJr. Katana Pro Gimbal Head

When it comes to gimbal heads, the ProMediaGear GKJr Katana Pro is a worthy contender. It strikes great balance between size, weight, and functionality.

The Katana Pro supports any lenses while being small enough to carry around. Weighing only 2.4 lbs, this gimbal head is great for traveling.

It is made of aircraft-grade T6061 aluminum and is durable for any type of shoot. This gimbal head also features an independent pan-tilt knob for easy adjustments.

Once attached, this gimbal head is smooth to use and you can track your subjects without a fuss.

The GKJr Katana Pro also comes in Red and Safari Green. The green Katana Pro is inspired by one of our ambassadors -Kevin Dooley.

3. BH1 Ball Head with Arca-Clamp

Third on this list is the ProMediaGear BH1 Professional Ball Head with Arca-Clamp. Sure, it is a heavy ball head at 2-lbs. However, it is for a good reason.

The BH1 is made of aluminum and steel, which adds to the weight. But when it comes to functionality, this ball head is top notch.

The main twist knob is easy to use and allows for quick adjustments. Everything is operated through the large knob except for the panoramic movement. There is no drop notch too as you can move the ball head around without any problems.

Added bonus is the included PBX3 Universal Plate which is usable on any arca-clamp too.

4. TR424L Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod

 Another tripod enters the list. The ProMediaGear TR424L Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod is built for those who are into extreme conditions. 

This tripod has a maximum height of 77 inches and load capacity of 125 lbs, which is double the load capacity of the TR344L. 

If you need a durable tripod that is larger than the TR344L or if you have a super heavy setup then the TR424L is for you.

Carrying it around is not a problem too as it only weighs 2903 grams or 6.4 lbs. It is heavier than the TR344L but for its functionality, it is still a winner.

5. GK Katana Professional Gimbal Head

The ProMediaGear GK Katana Gimbal Head is the bigger brother of the GKJr Katana Pro. Though it works the same as the Katana Pro, the bigger Katana is more stable when it comes to super heavy lens setups.

The GK Katan also operates smoothly and it can handle monster lenses from Canon, Nikon, and other manufacturers. 

This gimbal head, supports camera setups of up to 150 lbs and it has an Arca-swiss clamp with arca-compatible quick-release plates.

In addition, there are separate locking and adjustment mechanisms for precise movements. 

6. PLCR56 L-Bracket for Canon EOS R5 and R6

 Another ProMediaGear best seller is the PLCR56 Canon EOS R5 and R6 L-Bracket. Like other ProMediaGear products, it is made of T6061 Aluminum making it relatively lightweight and durable.

Using an L-bracket allows for quick changes from landscape to portrait and vice versa. But the best thing about the PLCR56 is it does not block the articulating screen. The ports are also open and you can change or attach accessories on the fly.

Lastly, the ProMediaGear A10 port protector and other attachments fit this L-Bracket too. Think of it as a modular system instead of a standalone L-bracket.

7. TR424 Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod

The ProMediaGear TR424 Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Tripod is a smaller version of the TR424L. The difference is the max height.

This tripod can go up to 58-inches and has a maximum load capacity 125 lbs. Folded length is 21.25 inches and only weighs 5.9 lbs.

Basically, if you need a tripod for rugged terrains but the TR424L is too large, then this is another option.

8. BH50 Ball Head

There are two variations of the ProMediaGear BH50 Ball Head. The BH50c60 has an included C60 clamp hence the name. The other one is the BH50c40 which has the C40 clamp. Functionality for both models are the same.

That being said, the ProMediaGear BH50 looks and works like other regular ball heads. However, it provides better grip while providing a smooth and precise movement.

The BH50 has a standard Arca-type mount which is compatible with any Arca-Swiss system.

It is also made of T6061 aluminum and is lighter than the BH1 Ball Head.

If you need a smaller, more compact ball head then you may skip the BH1 and get this ball head instead. Either way, the 150 lbs load capacity is perfect for any camera setup.

9. BBX2 Boomerang Flash Bracket

The ProMediaGear BBX2 Boomerang Flash Bracket fits most cameras without a battery grip. The compact folding design makes it easy to carry as well.

The boomerang flash bracket allows you to position your external flash above the lens while shooting in any orientation.

Another advantage is the flash bracket's height. It is higher compared to other flash brackets in the market. This provides a better lighting position.

Lastly, using the BBX2 flash bracket with portable flash modifiers is doable. That means, you can attach a softbox and you can take more flattering images.

10. TR42ML Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Monopod

Last but not the least on this list is the ProMediaGear TR42ML Pro-Stix Carbon Fiber Monopod. This monopod can go up to 81 inches and has the same material as the other ProMediaGear tripods.

It is made of 10 layers of carbon fiber and T6061 aluminum. The max load capacity is 70 lbs and is perfect for any setup.

Other features include rubber foot with built-in spikes, twist leg locks, neoprene grip and safety strap.

Carrying it is not a problem as well as it only weighs 1.7 lbs. You can easily store it on your backpack or carry it around with you like a walking stick.

Summary

These are the top 10 best ProMediaGear products worth checking out. But do not limit yourself as PMG products are modular. It is its own eco-system with SS2 strap ports, modular brackets, and many more.

The great thing with ProMediaGear is the 5-year warranty so rest assured that you are getting top-notch products.
