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.

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.
