Specifically designed for the latest DV camcorders used by documentary and industrial videographers.The 516 head is very compact and light but can support cameras up to 22 lbs (10 kg). The 516 is a cost effective high performance head equipped with fluid cartridges that provide continuous adjustable drag control. This system gives quite a wide range of friction control down to ''zero drag'' and operates on both pan and tilt axis. Other important features of the head are: separate tilt and pan locking mechanism; a fixed counter balance spring of 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg) load capacity at a center of gravity of 49'' (125mm); two telescopic pan handles; a bubble level. The head has been designed so it can be mounted on a flat base tripod with a 3/8'' female thread attachment or by attaching the ART 500BALL to the head base, allowing it to fit a 3.9'' (100mm) bowl.
