3 Legged Thing AHSW overview

  • 1Description

This Equinox (Blue, Orange, Gray) AirHed 360 Switch Head from 3 Legged Thing includes an Arca-type compatible quick release Switch Clamp with a QR3P-EQ Quick Release Plate. Arca-type, quick release plates can be attached or removed from the Switch Clamp by using its push-and-pull cam lock lever which features a safety catch to prevent the QR3P-EQ, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting. To adjust the force applied by the lever while it is closed, an included 2mm hex key can be applied to a screw along the lever's joint. When that screw is sufficiently loosened, the joint can be rotated and flipped over so that when used to lock the clamp, the direction of the lever's motion best suits either a right or left-handed user.

The AirHed Switch is compatible with tripods or support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount and has a load capacity of 88 lb. By loosening the AirHed Switch's primary locking knob, its ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. Toward the AirHed Switch's base is a secondary locking knob that controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.

Cameras, lenses, sport optics, or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the QR3P-EQ Quick Release Plate, which measures 1.5 x 1.5", and has a rubberized, anti-slip surface.

    3 Legged Thing AHSW reviews

    Equinox AirHed Switch Ball Head (Blue, Orange, Gray) is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight but super strong and sturdy I wanted something with a quick release plus lightweight and sturdy. Check out on a few options, but came across this and I wasn't disappointment. It pretty easy to operate plus you have the option to widen/tighten your plate (i.e. if you have different type of plate at different size). You can also switch the quick release to suit your need like if you are right or left handed, which I thought was pretty cool. The only downside I will say is plate where it doesn't have the D-Ring to tighten it. It does however come with the screw, but it will be nice if you don't have to carry another thing. Otherwise, very happy with the product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk. I dont know where / how they are rating these things to hold its maximum weight but let me tell you that it doesn't hold it. 88lbs is a joke when it cannot even hold 8lbs properly. Forget even turning the head vertically, better use an L bracket. With a 70-200mm f4 -- F4!! -- its light but it tends to droop, no matter how tight i try to make it. panning is not smooth and level which will result you a blurry long exposure.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NO WAY IT WILL HANDLE 88 LBS Head is fairly well made but I would say its weight limit is closer to 10 lbs not 88. It will not hold 15 lbs unless it is fairly well balanced. The Manfrotto 322rc2 grip head will though at a rating of 11 lbs.
