accurate degree markings
Accurate degree markings on rotation axes allow for precise positioning of the camera.
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.
Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength.
