The Cartoni Master 65 Head with Dovetail Plate, Telescopic Left Panhandle, and Short Right Panhandle is a fluid head designed with a large payload range for outdoor broadcast cameras with box lenses weighing up to 176 pounds. Featuring a flat base, the head easily mounts on a set of Mitchel mount legs or a pedestal with a Mitchell mount. The dovetail plate easily handles cameras, even up to the load capacity, and the fluid head's camera platform slides for balancing your camera on the head.

Continuously adjustable counterbalance features a digital readout, so you can precisely tune the head's response to your camera. Pan and tilt drag are each individually adjustable and continuously adjustable as well. The head pans a full 360° and tilts forward and back 65°. The built-in illuminated bubble level confirms that your fluid head is level and features a replaceable battery.

Center of Gravity and Payload

Depending on the center of gravity, the maximum payload of the head will vary. At 200mm it can support 143 pounds, at 175mm it can support 154 pounds, and at 150mm it can support 176 pounds.

Sliding Balance Camera Platform

The fluid head comes equipped with the standard dovetail plate that mounts on a large sliding platform, which features a crank for making precise adjustments. The platform is indexed for repeatable balance adjustment.

Counterbalance

The Master 65 comes equipped with a digital readout for counterbalance reference and an illuminated spirit bubble.

Fluid Drag

The fluid drag system is based on silicon film, which provides consistent drag as you increase it, and it has nearly freewheeling operation when drag is set to minimum.

Panhandle rosettes

The head features two rosettes, one on each side.
