Sirui C-10S Overview

The Sirui C-10S Ball Head is a sturdy and compact tripod head with separate control knobs for pan and tilt, plus a safety-button equipped Arca-type compatible clamp for the included quick release plate. The head features a wide range of movement including a 90° tilt for portrait orientation and a separate 360° pan lock for panoramic photography. At just 3.3" tall and only 0.5 lb, the compact design has been engineered to match with 0 and 1 series tripods in both size and weight.

Sirui's unique locking mechanism design allows the C-10S to support up to 28.7 lb despite its compact size. The redesigned Arca-type quick release clamp features a secondary safety-release button that prevents any inadvertent disengagement of the camera/plate from the clamp, thereby adding to the head's overall security and stability.

The C-10S's dual-control design allows the user to exercise extremely fine control over the orientation of their camera. Pan, for instance, can be adjusted while the tilt stays locked, for precise panoramas, or pan can be locked while only the ball joint is in use.

In regards to construction, the C-10S is machined from strong aluminum alloy and has been anodized with an oxidation treatment that ensures a durable, high-quality finish. Additionally, all three of the C-10S's control knobs are also constructed from aluminum with a knurled finish that provides wear-resistance and a solid grip.

question

Wondering if the Arca-Swiss base receiver can be removed to use a different QR system?
Asked by: stephen
The screw is not easily removed and can be damaged. There is a locking compound used to keep it in place.

question

Sirui's website says the load capacity for this ball head is 28 lbs, but B&H product specs show 8.8 lbs. Which is correct?
Asked by: Ravi K.
I've had this for a few months, for use with a light weight 50mm scope and a micro 4/3 camera. It's fine for that, but I wouldn't use it with a large scope or DSLR. Even 8.8 lbs is too much in my opinion, I wouldn't put on anything more than maybe 3-4 lbs.

question

Does this ball head ARCA plate have a D ring to attach the camera to the head?
Asked by: Harvey
No, it does not. The Sirui TY-C10 Quick Release Plate has a screw on the bottom designed to be tightened with either a coin or a hex screwdriver. It does not have a D-ring thumbscrew for tightening the screw.
