Product Features in Detail

1 bubble level
The built-in, carefully hand-set bubble spirit level helps make sure your horizons really are horizontal. 

222-322 ball friction
Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked. The position of the red line indicates the approximate amount of friction applied. 

carrying handle
Included carrying handle makes the tripod more comfortable to transport and stays conveniently and unobtrusively attached during use 

separate lock each axis
With a separate lock on each axis of movement, this head can be precisely adjusted, and panning/tracking can be achieved on any axis 

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 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 

wing-nut leg locks
Wing nut leg locks are slightly slower to use than 'Quick Action' flip lever leg locks, but give total control over locking force and are so easy to service out in the field that they'll never let you down. 

hydrostatic locking mechanism
The Hydrostat ball locking system is based on a chamber containing fluid, which, when pressurised 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.
