The ALTA BH-300 ball head is a multi-action ball head with precision control. With a carrying capacity of 30kg/66lbs, you can bet your gear on top will remain rock steady. The ball head has a separate locking knob, friction knob and panning knob allowing the unit to adjust to your working style. Most photographers like ball heads especially when doing portraits, studio work, scenic and work that does not require technical accuracy. This ball head will easily secure larger cameras with long lenses like 70-200mm and 180 to 400mm. The universal Arca compatible plate built-in safety-pin connectivity provides double security in case you accidentally release your camera.
