Desmond DMH-2-X1 Overview

This Desmond DMH-2X1 Monopod Tilt Head is designed for monopods that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It offers a ±90° tilt angle with an integrated Desmond DAC-X1 Arca-type clamp. By tightening or loosening the clamp's locking knob, a separately available Arca-type compatible quick release plate with an attached camera or lens can be secured or removed. The separately available plate can be precisely positioned using the clamp's 24mm center finder rulers while a built-in bubble level helps to ensure that this head and the device mounted to it are properly aligned to the subject. Constructed from aluminum alloy, the DMH-2X1 Monopod Tilt Head is durable while remaining lightweight.

The DMH-2X1 Monopod Tilt Head has a load capacity of 22 lb. A reducer bushing is provided, which also allows this head to be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 1/4"-20 mount. By loosening the MH-2X1 Monopod Tilt Head's locking knob, it can be quickly tilted or returned to its upright position.

The base of the Desmond DMH-2X1 Monopod Tilt Head is itself Arca-type compatible for use on monopods or support devices that feature a non-tiltable Arca-type clamp instead of a 3/8"-16 or 1/4"-20 mount. To help prevent this monopod tilt head from accidentally sliding off if the clamp it is placed on is opened, four retaining screws are included for installation on the underside of the tilt head base.

  • Compatible with monopods or support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount
  • Reducer bushing included for compatibility with tripods or support systems that feature a 1/4"-20 mount
  • ±90° tilt angles can each be locked into place
  • Integrated Desmond DAC-X1 Arca-type clamp with bubble level allows a separately available Arca-type compatible quick release plate with an attached camera or lens to be secured or removed

  • Tilt head base is Arca-type compatible for use on monopods or support devices that feature a non-tiltable Arca-type clamp instead of a 3/8"-16 or 1/4"-20 mount

Asked by: Jon
There are no markings anywhere on the device that directly answers the question. My paperwork has long been disposed of so I can’t check that. No obvious answers by internet adds. My two assumptions: not made in USA and most likely made in China. Mine works nicely but not the high end quality ( or price ) of RRS.

question

What is the difference between clamps and plates? Are both a clamp and a plate needed to attach heads to tripods and monopods?
Asked by: Nancy L
A clamp is the vice-like portion of the head that is adjustable and can be tightened or loosened in order to hold an arca-swiss type plate. The plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and then to the top of this head via the clamp. Once the clamp is tightened onto the plate, the camera is securely attached to the head.

So can a Really Right Stuff B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (60mm) clamp be installed on this tilt head instead of the one that comes with it? What is the screw mount on the bottom of the tilt head 3/8-16?
Asked by: Edwin
You can install the Really Right Stuff B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (60mm) on this head if you wish. The screw mount on the bottom of this head is 3/8-16 for mounting on most any monopod. This kit comes with a 3/8 to 1/4 bushing you need it.
