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.

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

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

ball friction

Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.
