The 3 Legged Thing AirHed 1 Magnesium Alloy Ball Head (Black) is a stylish head for a DSLR or film camera that encourages precise adjustments and fast setup changes. Composed of an aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium alloy, the sturdy head supports loads up to 77.16 lb, so it's suitable for all cameras and most lenses.
The AH1 head features a robust knurled knob that operates the Arca-style quick-release clamp. Additional knurled knobs manipulate the ball head's pan lock and ball/tilt lock. The pan-lock knob features an inset tension control that affects the play of the ball's movement.
The included quick-release plate, also magnesium, is compatible with BlackRapid's R-Strap camera slings, by way of its FastenR-T1 camera screw. The 1/4"-20 camera screw's flip-up D-ring allows you to tighten it to your camera easily. This ring allows you to attach your camera to an R-Strap and quickly move it from around your neck or shoulder to the AirHed 1 without removing the sling.
