PRODUCT FEATURES

accurate degree markings

Accurate degree markings on rotation axes allow for precise positioning of the camera.

ball friction

Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.

repositionable ratchet lever

A repositionable ratchet means that the locking lever's action will never be blocked either open or closed by interference with the camera body, tripod shoulder, etc. Simply pull the lever outwards and it's free to be positioned more comfortably without affecting the locking mechanism; then you can continue tightening or loosening the knob.

secondary security lock

This head features a secondary security lock so you can't accidentally release the plate (and camera) without meaning to. The lock stops the quick release lever from opening fully.

separate pan lock

A separate lock on the panoramic axis allows for rotation adjustment or panning to be carried out without losing framing.

sturdy all-metal construction

Sturdy all-metal construction.

double 90° groove

The double 90° groove (one on each side of the head) means switching from landscape to portrait is convenient however you're set up.

ergonomic

Ergonomic and easy to use.

weight-saving construction

Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength.

hydrostatic locking mechanism

The Hydrostat ball locking system is based on a chamber containing fluid, which, when pressurized by the tightening of the lock knob, exerts an even locking force on the ball. The evenness of the force applied by this system compared to the traditional mechanical blocking technique is what gives this head its remarkable load capacity. The Hydrostat system also reduces framing deviation during blocking for greater accuracy.

low center of gravity

By keeping the head and camera mounting plate as low as possible, the camera is kept safely closer to the tripod's center of gravity for more stable support.
