The Series 5 Systematic Ball Head is a low-profile friction ball head that fits into the shoulder of a Systematic tripod. The D-profile head is Arca-type compatible, and allows the included QR plate to be snapped into the head from above, a faster alternative to sliding in the dovetail plate from the side. The low-profile design allows a camera to be mounted very close to the top of your tripod, giving you optimal support. It can be mounted to any tripod with a 3/8"-16 stud, or it can be fitted into the upper casting of any Systematic tripod. The head rotates a full 360ø around the central axis and tilts +/-28ø laterally. A hydraulic locking system allows fast control and smooth locking speed.
This ball head has a Systematic safety catch, which - when used with select Systematic tripods - prevents the head, and any gear attached to it, from falling out of the tripod.
The included ring adapter is required when using this head with a Series 5 Systematic Tripod.
