FLM 12 58 909 overview

  • 1Description

The CB-58 FTR Ball Head with QRP-70 Quick Release System from FLM is an aluminum alloy ball head that can support 132.3 lb. It has three locking knobs; one controls 360° panning and one controls the amount of friction and movement of the ball. The third knob controls FLM's patented tilt function. When the tilt function is activated, the ball moves along a straight line and acts as a tilt head. When the function is deactivated, you have full control over the movement of the ball in all directions.

The quick release system includes a dovetail clamp and plate with laser engraved scale numbers on the side so you can adjust your camera fore and aft by 40mm. The plate clicks into the base from above and is secured by the locking pin so you can adjust the base and then lock it into place by turning the locking lever. This prevents your camera from sliding out of the clamp while you're adjusting the camera's location. All parts are sourced and manufactured in Germany.

While panning, the PRS system locks your head every 15° and makes an audible click.
A quick locking mechanism at 0° allows you to quickly attach or remove the head to or from your tripod.
A notch in the head allows the camera to tilt 90° to shoot in portrait orientation.

    FLM 12 58 909 reviews

    CB-58 FTR Ball Head with QRP-70 Quick Release System is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great engineering This ball head was pricey, but I looked at a bunch of options and reviews. I think purchasing a good ball head is a lot of personal preference. This is a large heavy unit, but I have a Nikon D4s and some big lenses and I wanted something I could depend on without fear of damaging my equipment. This unit can take a lot of height and the adjustments are unlimited.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FLM CB-58 Built like a tank, good German quality was looking at the RRS 55 mm ball head which is about the same price as this one but without the locking tilt feature or the or the PRS system locks your head every 15 which is nice feature as well. Completely happy with this head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece I bought it use with a 4x5 camera. Very precisely made. The adjustable tension anvd tilt only functions made it very controlable with heavy cameras
