Really Right Stuff FH-350 overview

  • 1Description

The FH-350 with Dovetail Base from Really Right Stuff is an ultra-smooth fluid video head designed for compact cameras such as DSLRs. It features a sinusoidal counterbalance system with infinite adjustability, allowing for extremely smooth and consistent balance for 1.6 - 10 lb loads throughout a +/-90° tilt range. Really Right Stuff uses a proprietary damping grease that maintains a consistent pan-and-tilt feel in a wide temperature range of 0 to 140°F.

The FH-350 has an integrated flat dovetail base on the bottom that's compatible with Arca-Swiss dovetail adapters as well as Really Right Stuff dovetail quick-release adapters. The base also offers a 3/8"-16 threaded mounting hole on the bottom and safety pin holes. The camera plate adapter on top as well supports Arca-Swiss plates and Really Right Stuff plates, and has a clamp lever that'll keep your plate firmly secured. A camera plate is sold separately.

In addition to the smooth movement, the FH-350 workflow is defined by advanced adjustment knobs and wheels that correspond to precision markings, providing for an accurate and highly reliable professional workflow.

Key Features
Flat Dovetail Base
Integrated Arca-Swiss compatible male dovetail on the bottom — pairs with Really Right Stuff leveling bases with a quick-release clamp. The dovetail features a 3/8"-16 threaded tripod socket on the bottom center, as well as holes for safety pins.

Sinusoidal Counterbalance System
Keeps camera balanced throughout the entire +/-90° tilt range.

Tilt Damping Adjustment Wheel
Rotate the wheel to adjust tilt damping. Chevrons align with index mark in four positions to deliver: Off (empty chevrons), Low, Medium, and High (filled chevrons) levels of fluid damping. Note that there is no damping between the chevron marks.

Pan Damping Adjustment Wheel
Similar to the Tilt Damping Adjustment Wheel, it rotates to adjust the level of fluid damping. There are no intermediate settings between the chevron marks.

Counterbalance Adjustment Knob
Rotates clockwise to increase the counterbalance restoring torque. Rotates counter-clockwise to decrease the counterbalance restoring torque.

Pan Handle
Includes foam-padded, 15" pan handle that can be mounted on either side of the head. It secures via a swivel lock mechanism instead of rosettes.

Pan Lock Knob
Rotate the Pan Lock Knob clockwise to tighten the panning base and prevent rotation. Rotate it a single turn counter-clockwise in order to loosen the panning base. The knob can be removed for replacement.

Tilt Lock Lever
Rotate the Tilt Lock Lever toward the direction of the Lock symbol on the arrow to lock the head's tilt axis at any position. Loosen the tilt axis by rotating the lever in the opposite direction.

Quick-Release Clamp
Accepts all Arca-Swiss and Really Right Stuff compatible plates and rails, sold separately. Clamp jaws are laser engraved in 1mm increments from (+)25 - 0 - (-)25 on center. Dual index marks aid positioning. (Arca-Swiss P0 — "P Zero" — Slidefix plates and plates made by Novoflex are not supported.)

Clamp Lever
The clamp lever incorporates a release latch that when pressed swings the lever open 90°. When it's locked, it keeps your quick-release plate firmly secured.

Precision Laser Markings
Precision markings on the pan and tilt axes allow you to produce repeatable positioning of the fluid head. Tilt axes are laser engraved in 5° increments, and numbers and chevrons in 15° increments.

Circular Spirit Level
Tilting the head forward, locking it at 45°, and viewing the bubble directly downward will produce the most accurate bubble reading.

    Really Right Stuff FH-350 reviews

    FH-350 Fluid Head with Flat Dovetail Base is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Superbly Engineered Compact Video Head This is a superb piece of engineering from Really Right Stuff that works amazingly well. Intended for DSLRs and lightweight video cameras, the FH-350 implements the Arca-Swiss dovetail mounting approach. So if you are invested in RRS or other compatible camera mounting hardware for still photography, this is just what you need in a video head. If not, buy a RRS dovetail plate to fit your camera. I use the RRS MPR-CL rail to attach a Nikon D810 camera (soon to be a Nikon D850). Additionally, I use a RRS leveling base with quick-release for rapid swapping to a RRS ballhead for stills. The FH-350 is quite lightweight, so going from a RRS BH-55 ballhead doesn't add all that much additional weight, just a bit of height. But you will be adjusting tripod height anyway. I have several lesser video heads and can never quite get the counter balance set so that perfect balance is achieved over a range of tilt angles. The FH-350 is easily adjusted to be spot-on with no over- or under-shoot from nearly straight down to straight up. Credit the FH-350's sinusoidal balance system for this. I thought that the three levels of selectable damping might be limiting, especially after using heads with continuously adjustable damping, but I actually like the RRS better -- they have implemented just the right range of damping for smooth tilts and pans, either the first or second level of damping seems just right depending on how fast I am panning. And this head is as smooth as butter. Immediately impressive upon unboxing is the build quality of the FH-350; those who are unacquainted with RRS products should be prepared for a very pleasant surprise. Some might like a bigger, possibly lighted, bulls eye level, but I only use the level on the RRS leveling base. So kudos to the RRS design team for a video head that admirably fills the needs of DSLR users, particularly those who want a high performance but compact video head at an affordable price.
