As an ex-cameraman i gathered experiences with those kind of gear. Let me tell you: the ones providing good quality and reliability are VERY expensive.
The peace shown here looks like a "garage-product" as we say.

Besides of that is it - as vincen already mentioned - for video-use and only theoretically adaptable to pano-needs.

There´s a much better device for that purpose: the Merlin . . :cool:

Points taken but there are folk wanting larger gear to handle bigger and heavier cameras and lenses.

This 'garage-product' system is relatively cheap - US$750 - and might be 'good enough' for pano work?

Although I feel I prefer a Pixorb style design with a U-shaped 'arm' supported on both sides, and maybe 'cogged/toothed' belt type drive rather than intermeshing gears.

It seems to me that for pano photography purposes you don't really need extremely precise positioning?
