Light Yet Powerful

The Absolute Classic among tripod heads, Proaim Orion geared head has introduced a new level of motion control in the field of cinema gear. Our gearhead makes no negotiations in terms of features, reliability, or performance, thereby aiming for the precise fluid pan and tilts. Furthermore, its solid & lightweight aluminum-crafted body accommodates a range of professional cameras weighing up to 25 kg/55lb.

Fluid Pan & Tilt Moves

Our Orion Head owns a panning range of 360° and a 35° tilt range, along with the privilege of precise marking for perfect tilt. You can pan or tilt it in either direction using the manual pan and tilt cranks. Since these cranks are counterbalanced weighted cranks, you can rest the crank where exactly you left it, and we have created a separate pan and tilt lock, so you operate the pan and tilt it individually if you want.

Smooth Shots

The Orion Geared Head performs pan & tilts admirably. Its ability to perform rapid, repetitive motions accurately and swiftly in three axes makes it a must-have addition to your kit, delivering remarkably steady, smooth, and balanced shots every time.

Reimagined Precision

With Micron-level precision on each and every gear, this Gear Head provides close to zero backlashes in all movements. Over the past 18 months, we went back to the drawing board and redesigned all of its gearboxes to ensure there was no play/backlash in any movement, and we are proud of the end product.



Exceptional Long-Term Performance

We moved away from Brass Gear to Gun Metal Gear, ensuring a very quiet, extremely smooth movement along with extraordinary resistance to wear and tear over the years.



Selectable 2-Speed Gear

This Head features 2 speeds that you can select from based on the shot requirements. The head performs equally consistently at both speeds and is a pleasure to work with



User-Friendly Design

We provide two base options: a flat Mitchell base and a 100mm bowl, which can be switched out with the accompanying tools. Our Orion's head is a definite choice for any production set, whether it's a feature film, a music video, a short film, a commercial, or a corporate video. This entirely toolless clever innovation guarantees you will save time and energy on your next project.



Simplified Carrying

The head is built to be durable and lightweight, so you can count on it to last a long time and be effortless to travel with. And we packed it in a sturdy flight case so you can experience convenient travel as well as secure storage.

Great Head, Great Customer Support.

As a camera operator, I searched for a while on certainly used heads, but I then came across the Proaim Orion Gear Head. I read about it, read a couple of reviews, and even showed it to other operator friends of mine to get their take on it. For the price, it seemed too good to be true, but I decided to go for it. When it arrived, I was really surprised by the weight and overall construction. This thing is heavy, which is great. The head is all-metal construction, with no major plastic parts. Every important piece is machined. The Wheels are very hefty and properly weighted in your hand as you pan and tilt. The pan and tilt axis run smooth and have two speeds to choose from. Overall, I am impressed with this Gear Head. For $2000, you can't beat this at all. For the price of this, you are getting far more than you deserve and with solid construction. Another major component to all this is their Customer Support, which is excellent. One of the reasons for the Five Star review is the outstanding Support I received from Proaim. I had a couple of issues come up with my head that I needed help with. Immediately they were responding to all emails, and even doing their own follow-ups when they had not heard from me yet. In this business, Customer Support is everything. When your job relies on your equipment working 100%, it is pertinent that when things go wrong it can be fixed, quickly. Overall, I am very happy with the Proaim Orion Gear Head. If you are looking to get your feet wet with Wheel Operating, you cannot go wrong with this at all. The construction is solid and the performance is smooth. You will be pleased."

Orion Head is Spectacular

The Proaim Orion Geared Head just arrived, and after spending a couple of hours with it I must say that it is of Outstandingly High Quality both in design and construction. It's the perfect size for today's digital camera systems including everything from a Sony FS7 to an Alexa with all the bells and whistles. I also got the Proaim Heavy Duty 100 mm Tripod to use with it and the combination is superb. Well Done Proaim! Cynthia Webster DP Los Angeles .
