The Sunwayfoto FB-44DL Ball Head is an upgraded version of an extremely sturdy ball head. The FB-44DL is a precision panning base with a removable bubble level and two level mounting options. The scale has laser-engraved centering marks for great precision when shooting panoramic photos.

Compared to the previous DB line of ball heads, the FB-44DL is lighter, shorter, and with a smaller base diameter, but, with 20% greater locking strength in the ball head ball and 50% greater locking strength in the pan base. It also has a single notch for shooting in portrait orientation.

Like other high-end ball heads, the FB-44DL features an ellipsoidal ball that helps it handle off-center loads better– this shape introduces progressive resistance to reduce accidents. But for smoother operation, the aspherical nature of the ball is subtler than that of other heads – the y-axis diameter is only 0.03mm longer than the x-axis diameter (rather than the more common 0.07mm). The FB-44DL supports loads up to 66.13 lb.

The control knobs of the FB-44DL are 100% metal – no plastic or rubber is used. This ensures a smooth operation as well as reliability and durability. 

The quick-release clamp is compatible with Arca-Swiss-style dovetail plates
Situated inside the pan lock knob, the friction control knob allows you to handle safely a wide range of load sizes
This updated ball head has a single notch for portrait-oriented shooting, a base diameter 7mm smaller than the DB series ball head, increased locking strength in the ball and in the pan base, and a removable bubble level with two possible mounting locations on the head.
