The Jr.3 Deluxe kit weighs in at 1.5 lbs, 680grams. This is the lightest, best functioning gimbal head on the market, capable of supporting and balancing a 500F4 and Pro body comfortably. Yes, we still recommend a bigger HD3 or Pro2 gimbal for daily use, but if weight is your primary concern and you are travelling by air extensively, then lighten your load: Get a Jr.3 Deluxe, your back will thank you.
The Jr.3 Deluxe, and our other gimbals fit any tripod with a standard 3/8"-16 threaded top. We DO NOT RECOMMEND tripods with a 1/4"-20 thread under any circumstances. Using a 1/4"-20 threaded tripod with a reducer bushing will VOID your warranty.
