The PH-124V Magnesium Alloy Video Head from Vanguard is a fluid video head with a spring-loaded counterbalance system and fine-tuning front to back adjustment for ideal balance and center of gravity positioning for your camera.

This solid, closed-type construction head is designed to support 17.5 lb and its long handle offers precise movements and better control over heavy cameras. Adjustable drag tension provides smooth pan and tilt movements. It is capable of tiltiing between +60° and -90° and provides 360° swivel. The PH-124V offers both 1/4" and 3/8" attachments and features a bright bulls-eye bubble level. An additional quick-shoe is included with the head.
