  • 1Description

The Monoball Z2+ is an improvement on the Z1 ball head line from Arca-Swiss. This ball head allows for adjustments in two separate directions. A problem facing many photographers is how to adjust both the horizontal and vertical axes with just one ball head. The Z2 addresses this challenge by adding a second tilt axis, allowing full vertical movement.

The load bearing capacity and range of movement have been improved. This Monoball tripod head is engineered so the camera cannot slide out of position accidentally. The improved technology allows for stable position of the camera in any possible angle and direction, with fully secure locking.

The Double Panorama means that in addition to the first panorama swivel unit, there is a second unit located between the aspherical ball and the quick-lock plate. The second panorama swivel unit is convenient when shooting full-panorama pictures. The plane of the fast locking mechanism can be precisely aligned with the ball head, allowing the camera to rotate on the horizontal axis.

Monoball Classic Z2+ Double Panorama Ball Head is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Years ago Just to not confuse any readers, I bought an earlier version of this ballhead about 30+ years ago. I do not know if the workmanship or the quality is the same. The difference I see between mine and this new one is that the new one now contains a round platform and the plate on top whereas mine has the clamp attached directly to the to of the ballhead. I am really pleased how mine works after all this time. I love the two knobs because they do exactly what I want them to do. I have acquired RRS ballheads which I also really like and s couple of other quality brands that do the job. I seem to have a love of ballheads as I have many pro Nikon cameras with different lenses attached for quick access so I keep them available to attach to tripods. My next purchase will be this new version (at least for me) because I am really pleased with my old one that still works like new after all these years. I love the RRS ballheads but I already have three of them so I want another Arca-Swiss. The only thing I don't like about Arca-Swiss is their quick release plates, they suck. That is unless they changed them in the last 5 years. The levers do not keep them tight on the camera plates, or at least don't one the 2 I own. I like the RRS ones much better, but I still only buy the screw knob plates as I don't trust the quick release levers.
