Overview
  • 1Description

The Sunwayfoto FB-44DDH2 Ball Head With Panning Clamp is an extremely sturdy ball head with a DDH-02 panning clamp. The DDH-02 is a precision panning base with integral clamp and a bubble level. 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-44DDH2 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.

Like other higher-end ball heads, the FB-44DDH2 features an ellipsoidal ball that helps it better handle off-center loads – 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 (other similar heads typically have a disparity of 0.07mm). The FB-44DDH2 supports loads up to 66.13 lb.

Rigorous testing has resulted in a very strong shell. The control knobs of the FB-44DDH2 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
Compared to previous DB series ball heads, the FB-44 has a smaller diameter, is shorter and lighter, but has increased locking strength in the ball and in the pan base
