Acratech Video Ballhead with Knob Clamp Quick Release
Key Features
  • Payload: 25 Pounds
  • 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 Compatible Flat Base
  • Adjustable Pan and Tilt Drag
  • Full Ball Head Adjustment
Acratech's Video Ballhead is a hybrid between a still photography ball head and a fluid, dampened, pan-and-tilt, video head that can hold camera and lens combinations weighing up to 25 pounds. This version features a knob clamp style quick release for securing heavy cameras and lenses. Despite its load capacity, the Video Ballhead only weighs 1.5 pounds, so it can be easily incorporated into an existing still photographer's setup, especially if they want to start shooting video with their camera as well. The head has a flat base that can be screwed onto a still photo tripod with a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 attachment.

Acratech Video Ballhead Overview

Acratech's Video Ballhead is a hybrid between a still photography ball head and a fluid, dampened, pan-and-tilt, video head that can hold camera and lens combinations weighing up to 25 pounds. This version features a knob clamp style quick release for securing heavy cameras and lenses. Despite its load capacity, the Video Ballhead only weighs 1.5 pounds, so it can be easily incorporated into an existing still photographer's setup, especially if they want to start shooting video with their camera as well. The head has a flat base that can be screwed onto a still photo tripod with a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 attachment.

Because it combines stills and video head technologies, it can be configured for either purpose. With the fluid, pan-and-tilt dampening engaged, the camera can be moved deliberately and precisely for smooth cinematic shots. With the damping disengaged and the ball unlocked, the camera can be tilted freely in any direction to compose photographs. Using the laser etched markings, the head can also be used with traditional panoramic photography techniques for stitching in post-production. The adjustable Arca-Swiss compatible camera platform can secure camera plates, lens supports, and nodal slides from Acratech and other manufacturers as well, so your existing equipment will still retain compatibility.
