Flat Base Fluid Head with 11 lb Payload
Wide Platform Ideal for DSLRs
-70° / +90° Tilt & 360° Pan
Accepts Camera Plates from Above
The head features a wider than standard platform to provide better support for DSLRs. The maximum load capacity is 11 lb. A 500PLONG quick release plate is included, and a side lock system on the head allows the plate to efficiently attach and click in from above, instead of aligning and sliding in from one end. Fluid cartridges on both the pan and tilt axes provide resistance for smooth, controlled pan and tilt. The tilt range is -70° / +90° and the pan rotation is 360°. The spring-loaded counterbalance is preset at 5.3 lb. The camera plate has both 1/4" and 3/8" camera screws, and the head has a 3/8" tripod mounting thread and a 3/8" thread on the side for attaching accessories, such as a video monitor.
The tripod features aluminum legs that extend in two stages from 16.3 to 55.1" at the release of flip-lever lock clamps. Additionally, a center-column is adjustable to extend the maximum height to 65". The center-column can also be removed entirely and used handheld with a camera still attached.
