The Magnus Folding Z-Head is a durable 12.8 oz aluminum support with extendable joints that enable your camera to rise to a maximum height of 3.8", and the camera attaches to the head by turning the thumb wheel with the 1/4"-20 thread into the camera's mount. The included hex key allows you to adjust the tension of the joints, and the head has a load capacity of up to 6.6 lb. Therefore, an ideal tool for video or photographic applications. The head can be easily extended in various angles over your subject or get close enough to do macro photography, or mount the Z-Head to a camera slider via its dual 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threaded mounts, and capture rolling video panoramas. Additionally, the head folds to a completely flat 0.8", and a bubble level is provided on the head to maintain your horizons aligned.
