Arca-Swiss L60 Reviews

An Excellent, Compact, Reliable Performer

Funny how we sometimes find our way back to something in our cabinet we forgot. I've owned two Arca C1 Cubes, two of these Core 60 units, an L75 unit, a P0 and P0-Hybrid, several RRS heads, a Rogetti head [even better than I expected it to be], etc. But amongst all that, the L60 has become my go-to. I use it for my Phase XT and my Leica Q2, as well as my Sony A7Riv [though if I am big-lensing for wildlife, I use a gimbal]. It is best with the Phase, where I have all the movement and orientation I need right on the camera. But it works with the others as well. Less prone to accumulating dirt inside than the C1, lighter than most everything other than the Acratech GXP-SS, large enough and small enough to go on an RRS 3-series, or a Peak Travel Tripod. Better balanced than a P0/Hybrid. It is my go-to now more often than all the rest.

Ordered this to upgrade from my LeoFoto G2 gear head. Super similar to what I was used to, but the bottom panning motion is a life changer! The camera stays super steady and I would definitely recommend it. The only reason I only rated this 3 stars is that the pictures don't match what I received. Other than the circular level on top of this, there are no other levels on the head, the two traditional levels shown in the picture is nonexistent!

Amazing Arca Core 60 Leveler

I have finally bought the Arca-Swiss Leveler Core 60 with the classic locking mechanism.  So far I have a classic Arca PO-ball head and and two classic Arca L-brackets for my DSLR cameras, but I have also started to use a 4x5 camera now… Wow, the Arca Core 60 Leveler is beautiful, perfect for easy and precise work in architecture and landscape photography. It is limited in movement, but keeps the cameras centered over the tripod at all times, just right for my way of working, very solid in build quality yet not too heavy and even a little shorter than the PO-ball head.  Using it with a DSLR feels like shift and tilt with a tripod head! I love it and as always with Arca-Swiss, I'm not quite sure how I managed without it, thank you Arca for the great gear and thank you B&H for carrying it!

Well made and good size

Very happy with this head it is well made and smooth to operate. It is a good size for a landscape tripod . Could be a little exposed to dust and grit getting into the mechanism. Works well with the Novoflex triobalance system

I have an Arca Swiss P0. Can this be attached to the top to make a hybrid?
Asked by: Mark
Typically, levelers are mounted below standard heads since it fixes uneven leveling much better when it's closer to the surface (i.e. the first device atop the tripod). While the Core Levelers from Arca-swiss are self-contained, they can be use as you described. But you could also consider other leveling bases with 3/8"-16 mounting threads to make it easier on yourself, like these: https://bhpho.to/3yONA3Q https://bhpho.to/3p0mxht https://bhpho.to/3p0mxht (this option has both male/female 3/8"-16 on the bottom)

Does the L60 have a two axis bubble level. The picture shows it does but I thought the l60 has just a single bullseye level. Please confirm?
Asked by: Chris
The photo is not correct: the Core 60 Leveler Classic has a single bubble level on the quick release, not on the side of the mount.
