Sirui SUL20S overview

  • 1Description

The L-20S 2-Way Pan/Tilt Head from Sirui is designed for use on a monopod, although it can be used on a tripod or any other support with a 3/8"-16 threaded stud. The head can hold up to 55.1 lb, allowing it to be used with heavier telephoto lenses. Separate locks control the +/-90° front-to-back tilt and the 360° panning.

To quickly attach your camera to the head, an Arca-type compatible quick release plate is included with a safety lock on the clamp to prevent it from accidentally falling out. Bull's eye and tubular bubble levels help ensure straight horizons, while numbered scales aid with repeatable pans and tilts. A case is included to protect the head when it is not in use.

    Sirui SUL20S reviews

    L-20S 2-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality I had not heard of Suri until I contacted B&H for a monopod we talked about it and I bought it, I purchased a Suri pan and tilt head piror to the monopod but never used it. I thought it would work well with the monopod. But there was just too much movement to try and control with a Nikkor200-500mm lens so I bought this pan and tilt head hoping for the best and it delivered beyond my expectations not only will it handle the weight but the control is never lost due to the smooth adjustments, I can have just enough resistance to control the lens and still tilt and or pan with full control. This is what I needed all the time and just didn't know it. The quality is outstanding, solid and all metal. Suri really know how to deliver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I opted for the L20s I'm very happy with the performance of this head. I'm glad I spent a little more to get the L-20s vs the L-10. The ability to change the orientation of the top plate means I can use this head for my macro rig in addition to my birding lens. My macro lens doesn't feature a lens collar, so I'm mounting to a plate on the camera body that runs perpendicular to the orientation of the L-10 head. This means you would only be able to tilt from left to right instead of up and down. If you are planning to use your monopod only with large telephoto lenses, than the L-10 is for you. But if you plan to use both lens collar mounts and body mounts, than this head is waht you need, and is more than worth the extra investment and slight weight increase. Quality build, smooth action, highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy / Good Quality I use this head with the Sirui P-424 monopod. The aspect that I like about it the most is that It is able to support the weight of my super-telephoto lens. The knobs are very easy to grip - even while wearing thick gloves. It is indeed able to support the use of Arca swiss plates. Although the head is very fluid in its motion, sometimes it can be a little difficult to move if there is not a lot of weight on it (for instance, if I were to use a lighter camera / lens combination that was not a super-telephoto).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice monopod tilt head, but don't trust D-ring on QR plate This is a very nice, sturdy tilt head that I am completely confident in. I like the large knob for tilt, although I wish the arca swiss release knob were positioned on the other side (at first I grabbed it instead of the larger knob). Swivel is kind of overkill if used on a monopod but I'm sure I will use it. While the head itself is built like a tank, please be advised that when tightening the included quick release plate to the tripod ring of a Canon 100-400mm lens the D-ring snapped. It was my intention to use this in combination with Black Rapid sling so I'm very glad it broke now rather than later with camera and lens attached via BR Fastenr carabiner! I've contacted� Sirui, but this may go back to B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for monopods I am using this head to support a manual Nikkor ED-IF 800mm f/5.6, which is about 24 long with its lens shade on. It handles the weight fine, and is reasonably ergonomic. The controls are large enough to engage a positive lock. The build is beefy, so I also look forward to also using it with my manual Nikkor ED-IF 300/2.8. Have to get another camera (lens) plate. It is faster to use than even my small Gitzo Tele Studex Giant, which is also too heavy to lug about unless it's a real shoot with an assistant. I attached a picture shot with this, but I it looks like it has been set on its side. Their bad, not mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I knew very little about Sirui before ordering this. I needed a 2 way tripod head that could hold a lot of weight and be stable. It's everything I expected and more. The movement is extremely smooth and well damped in both movement planes. It holds my Nikon 200-500mm very well and I feel it could hold a lot more weight effectively. I appreciate the fact that it comes with an accessory plate. It's a very good one and it's not usually included in the price of similar offerings from other manufacturers. The quality is exceptional for the price and I'm used to the best with Markins (M10, M20 and now Q20). If there is one thing I would like in a future version it would be to have the ability to lock the up-down angle to a certain preset degree say 30 and 60 degrees. To me that would mean added security. It would prevent a heavy lens from swinging down 90 degrees if left unattended for a moment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as Silk I bought this to use on both a tripod and a monopod. On a tripod the 2-degrees of freedom (altitude and azimuth) is the same type of motion that a Wimberley enables at a fraction of the weight. What really surprised me was the very smooth motion. It feels like a fluid head and swinging a long lens (e.g., 100-400 on Fuji X Pro2) was a pleasure. Of course, on a monopod, the azimuthal (panning) motion is not needed, but the fluidity of the altitude control and the light weight of the head make it a pleasure to carry and use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Solid Quality Product Built like a Tank and Smooth as Silk,,,,I use it on a Monopod,,,pans 360% and Tilts 90% up and down,,,,if taking stills cannot shoot in portrait mode unless you set up the quick release plate on the camera for portraits 90% left or right but then you lose your ability to tilt,,,I use in on a monopod set up so I can shoot in portrait mode with the camera and just move the monopod for tilt,,,great product.....
