The Photo Clam Pro Gold II Easy QR Ball Head features a lever-operated clamp for its Arca-style quick-release mechanism. Instead of twisting a knob several times, simply flip the lever to change out cameras or to switch over to handheld shooting. In addition to quick & easy operation, the head offers extremely strong ball-locking for a very high 66.1 lb load capacity.

The Pro Gold II Easy QR head features separate knobs for locking the ball and the pan base, enabling you to keep the orientation of your framing locked while you pan. This makes it appropriate for panoramic photography. Within the ball-locking knob there's a dial for applying progressive biaxial friction, to accommodate lighter and heavier camera setups across the head's vast load capacity.

The quick-release clamp is compatible with almost all Arca-style camera plates from both Photo Clam and other manufacturers, such as Kirk, Acratech, Arca-Swiss, and Novoflex. The width of the clamp can be adjusted easily using the included tool in case a particular dovetail plate doesn't immediately fit.

The head features a slot for tilting 90° to portrait orientation. Bubble levels allow you to ensure that your framing hews to the horizon in either landscape or portrait orientation.

Note: After you've adjusted the width of the clamp to fit your camera plate, use a single brand of plate with this head.

The quick-release clamp opens in two steps: the first step allows you to slide out your camera horizontally, and the second (completely open) lets you remove it vertically
The clamp lever features a safety button to eliminate any inadvertent loosening of the clamp
The width of the quick-release clamp can be adjusted to fit almost any dovetail plate
The head attaches to a tripod via its 3/8"-16 threaded mount
