The Redged RHDB-53 Professional Heavy-Duty Ball Head is an extremely strong head that features separate knobs for pan, tilt, and tension. The RHDB-53 supports loads up to 44 lb, so you can be sure that your DSLR, medium-format, or other camera will be securely positioned atop your tripod or other mount.
The RHDB-53 has an Arca-style clamping quick-release system for broad compatibility with a wide range of camera plates (a quick-release plate is included). The head uses Teflon for ball lubrication rather than grease, which means that nothing will stick inside and damage components: Neither dirt, dust, grime, nor sand will collect. This makes it great for photographers who do a lot of work outdoors in rugged environments (or on blissful beaches).
For working with a variety of equipment load levels, the RHDB-53 ball head's friction or tension adjustment is a helpful way to ensure that you can make smooth, safe adjustments to your camera's positioning.
- Separate pan lock and degree markers around the base make the RHDB-53 suitable for panoramic photography
- The head's Arca-style B-series quick-release system puts pressure on the plate via diagonal points for an extremely strong connection
- Retention pin prevents the plate from accidentally sliding off if the clamp is left inadvertently loose
- Teflon ball surface rather than grease ensures that dust, dirt, sand, and grime will not collect inside
