Load Capacity
The generous 55 lb load capacity of the RTH-1050 enables the smooth positioning of almost any type of camera, ranging from simple compact models up to heavy camera-plus-lens combinations, with stable and secure results.
Tension Control
The locking knob includes an integrated tension dial that sets the minimum amount of friction on the ball. This ensures there's friction, even when the main locking knob is disengaged. This feature assures control of your camera and lens when you need to quickly unlock and reposition the ball head.
Arca-Type Compatible Quick Release System
The Arca-type compatible quick release plate allows the camera and lens set to be quickly mounted. It incorporates a bubble level for precise horizontal alignment, and a +/- 25mm scale for precise quick release plate positioning. The included AQR-60 quick release plate has a D-ring 1/4"-20" mounting screw, rubber traction strips to prevent camera rotation, and security pins to prevent it from accidentally releasing from the mounting platform while being positioned.
Panoramic Base
The panning base operates independently from the main tension knob and features its own locking knob. A highly visible precision scale adds simplicity to panoramic imaging and creating repeatable results.
Aircraft-Grade Aluminum
For exceptional strength and stability, the RTH-1050 head is constructed with aircraft-grade aluminum that can stand up to demanding use and travel and perform at the highest level. All of the control knobs are cross-hatch knurled for easy gripping.
Solid Brass-Reinforced Socket
The base of the RTH-1050 ball head features an industry-standard 3/8"-16 mounting socket machined from corrosion-resistant brass, making it compatible with virtually any tripod leg set. The socket is made from reinforced brass to resist wear for long life and reliable, secure tightening.
90° Notch
Quickly change the camera orientation from landscape to portrait using the 90° notch.

Why is this ball head not recommended for use on a monopod?
Asked by: Michael
Typically ball heads offer too much motion when unlocked, which can be hard to handle when using a monopod. With only two hands to grip onto the camera or lens; monopod itself; or the head/tension release knob, using a ballhead could make it difficult to secure the lens in the correct position/orientation. Alternatively, using a monopod head limits the motion to a single axis via the primary tension knob, making it easier to adjust for tilt while not giving you any hassle with pan or roll.
