Arca-Swiss Monoball p0 overview

  • 1Description

The Monoball p0 Hybrid Ball Head Classic Quick Release from Arca-Swiss has a unique design that combines the light weight and straight-forward simplicity of the original p0 head with the geared precision movements of the C1 Cube. The p0 Hybrid employs an aspheric ball with 3-point locking that enables smooth adjustments and secure lockdown, allowing the 1.1 lb support to handle loads up to 44 lb.

The photographer or videographer first makes coarse leveling and alignment adjustments, locks them down, and makes fine adjustments of plus or minus 10 degrees on the x and y axis using the head's 2 self-locking geared segments. You can then use the swivel stage above the geared sections for a completely level 360-degree rotation without further adjustments.

This version of the head has a Classic Quick Release. The quick release accepts virtually all Arca-type compatible camera plates.

Knobless Design
Locking operation is facilitated by simply turning the highly visible knurled ring on the body of the head. It is easy to feather control between loose and firm lock.
Panning Mechanism
Situating the panning mechanism directly below the camera plate, instead of in the base of the head, means that the pan is always in the same plane as the camera.
Aspheric Ball
The aspheric shape of the ball gives progressive resistance to tipping and can prevent accidents.

    Arca-Swiss Monoball p0 reviews

    Monoball p0 Hybrid Ball Head with Classic Quick Release is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Gear Mechanism, Awful Ball Mechanism The gearing mechanism on the top is fantastic. I love it. Solid, self-locking, smooth, precise. Five stars for the gearing mechanism. Wish I could afford Arca Swiss's Cube which is presumably of a similar quality. The ball half of the product (and by extension I must assume the original p0 it's taken from) is completely worthless. At maximum tension it's no more than half as "locked" as a Really Right Stuff BH-55. And it's awkward, difficult, and even painfully to even *get* maximum tension because of the stiff, sticky, wobbly, even painful-to-turn locking ring. I get that the inverted head design leaves limited room for an ergonomic knob like the BH-55, but they could've used a repositionable one like the BH-40. This is probably not a "bad sample" - I've had two copies. 1 star for the ballhead mechanism. The panning mechanism under the clamp has cool 90 degree detents (though they're a bit shallow and hard to feel when the head is under load), and it has a fairly smooth movement which is not too stiff as some ballhead panning bases can be. However, the knob is *extremely* flimsy plastic I was terrified of breaking. 3.5 stars for the panning mechanism. All of Arca-Swiss's clamps are not great. Knobs are too small, safety stops positioned too far out to allow the plate's full range of motion, and it being a dual clamp with their useless Slidefix system nobody asked for, it's difficult to seat a plate into the proper dovetail if you're in a hurry or dim light. And they lock them permanently onto the head because they're bitter than Really Right Stuff and others make a superior product in "violation" of Arca Swiss's 40-year-old expired patent on the form factor. 2 stars for the clamp mechanism.
