The Leofoto LH Series LH-55LR 55mm low profile ball head with LR-70 Quick Release Clamp is a pinnacle of precision engineering and robust design, tailored for professional photographers and videographers. Crafted from international standard 6061-T6 aluminium alloy, this ball head ensures unparalleled durability and strength, boasting a hardness rating of over 18 degrees. Its ability to perform flawlessly in extreme temperatures, ranging from -30°C to 60°C, is a testament to the high-quality Nichimoly lubricants used, ensuring smooth and reliable operation in any environment.

More Information

Constructed from international standard 6061-T6 aluminium alloy, the LH-55R+RH-3 boasts a hardness exceeding 18 degrees, providing unparalleled strength and longevity. The professional-grade ball head design supports heavy loads, locks securely, and offers smooth, fluid movement. It is faster to use and inherently more stable than traditional 3-axis pan-tilt heads, making it an ideal companion for photographers on the go. Its compact design allows for easy packing and transport, while aiming and horizon levelling become instinctive actions with the quick twist of a single control.

The LH-55R+RH-3 features dual drop-notches and a low height profile, enhancing reliability and versatility. Its large, ergonomic main locking knob ensures easy handling, while the precisely machined ball guarantees silky smooth movements. The dual drop-notches facilitate effortless transitions between landscape and portrait modes or other angle adjustments. Additionally, the drag tension knob is numbered for precise control, and the laser-engraved scale on the panning base simplifies panoramic photography.

Equipped with an Arca-Swiss style quick-release plate and clamp, the LH-55R+RH-3 introduces a new locking system composed of three tightly overlapped domes and a brass washer, delivering exceptional strength and durability. The clamp can securely hold up to 25kg when fully locked. Its extra-wide jaw prevents twisting and partially conceals the lever for a sleek appearance. The locking lever offers a full range of motion with three distinct positions—open, half-way, and locked—allowing for quick and easy camera attachment and removal. In the half-way position, the plate remains securely in place for adjustments, enhancing operational efficiency.

Incorporating a low-profile design, the lever does not protrude above or below the clamp, hugging the contours closely when closed. This thoughtful design minimizes interference and maximizes the convenience of switching cameras and supports swiftly. The LH-55R+RH-3 is perfect for photographers who prioritize speed and accuracy, ensuring they never miss a crucial shot due to equipment limitations.
