The Arca Swiss Monoball eliminates the need to modulate the tension, because its elliptical nature corrects it by virtue of its own design. The load stays exactly where you tell it to once locked into position. A separate control is set to apply a constant minimum friction, which allows the photographer the peace of mind that comes with knowing that his gear will never move of its own volition. The heavier the equipment, the more the advantages of the Arca Swiss become evident. The exquisite finish adds to the exact positioning capacity.
This B1g (giant) Monoball version is a large single axis ballhead with panning capabilities, and will support the heaviest of cameras. The ballhead includes the "Arca" style quick release system for quick mounting and dismounting of cameras.
