Hey guys, I picked up a panohead for use with my gfx 50r and quickly discovered that the camera is too wide.  It sure looks like most of the panoheads I find on amazon don't have enough space and are not adjustable for the width of the gfx.  In the attached image, the red arrows show where there is not enough room.  I also have an L Bracket grip which really cements the camera to the tripod with 0 gravity loosening and gravity influence.  I'd like my panohead to work well with that solid foundation.

Can anyone recommend a good panohead for 360 photography using a gfx 50R, and at a reasonable price (or at any price).  I'm not finding a lot of good options yet.

Ok I guess that explains it, although several of the gimbal heads advertise with pics of the camera mounted horizontal like this picuture included, and me having no experience with them did not know they were not adjustable for the camera width.  I'm not a long lens guy.

So, back to my question, can anyone recommend a 360 degree panohead for gfx 50r.  This acratech one looks pretty sweet but it's pricey at over 400 bucks, maybe that's my only option.  I did find this neewer one (with red knobs) but it does not seem allow a horizontal mount and I'm not sure it will be tight enough for the weight and size of the gfx.

My goal is to shoot some horizontal 360 degree images, both regular pano and for HDRi and with the fold out LCD view screen horizontal works better than vertical.
