Arca-Swiss P1 S overview

  • 1Description

The Arca Swiss Monoball P1 S with Quick Set Device Flip-Lock is a unique, entirely re-engineered type of ballhead that improves on the conventional ballhead design. The first noticeable difference is the "upside-down" design of this ballhead. Instead of having a ball that rests inside a ball-housing, the entire P1's ball-housing sits on top of the ball. Three small gears surround the ball and apply a uniform, synchronized force around the ball, thus ensuring smooth movement of the installed camera in all axes.

Another major difference with the P1 head is the conspicuous absence of a locking knob. Instead of using a lever or knob, you lock down the head by turning the knurled ring, which is positioned between the camera platform and the ball. This means that whichever orientation the head may be positioned in front of you, you can blindly reach for the ballhead and turn the knurled ring to set the camera, without having to fumble for the locking knob.

The panning system is unconventionally located above the ball, just below the camera mount. This allows the 360° panoramic rotation to be kept in line with the vertical axis.

Ever since their introduction over forty years ago, the Arca Swiss Monoballs have been at the forefront of quality and performance. Today, their unique shape (an ellipse rather than a sphere) is still what separates them from all others. With other ballheads, no matter how good the tension modulation is, invariably you will need to increase the tension control as you move the load away from the center. This is because gravity has a greater effect on gear when not perfectly level.

Includes the Flip-Lock quick release system, which offers double safety locking feature, with instant flip-lock release of the clamp. This also allows for faster mounting and dismounting of cameras.
Maximum tilt range of 35°
Base diameter of 2.5" (65mm)

    Arca-Swiss P1 S reviews

    Monoball P1 S with Quick Set Device Flip-Lock is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Love this, solid strong can accommodate even my 400mm 2.8 with ease. I really like the ring for locking the ball. it is really easy and intuitive. Best yet it is arthritis friendly. I purchased a Kirk L bracket to go with this as this won't tilt 90 degrees. No problem with an L Bracket. Once leveled it works quite smoothly for panorama's. My only issue is that I use the Classic Arca Swiss style plates and this is designed to use both that plate and a newer smaller plate they now support. because of this, it is possible that with the flip lock in the middle position (loose for adjusting plate position) that the sense could slide out. No, the stop screws on your Kirk or RRS plates won't work because of the support this has for dual plate styles. So be careful. This is why I only gave 4 Stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ball head I've ever used I love the ease and simplicity of the camera adjustment mechanism, yet it's utterly secure when the camera is locked in place. The knurled ring that replaces the usual knob means I never have to look up from the camera when composing and focusing; just quick the ring a quick turn to the right to move/adjust camera and quick turn to the left to secure it. It's lighter and more compact than my previous Arca Swiss B1 ball head. Minor grumble: the flip-lock mechanism requires 2 maneuvers to release the camera, but probably does keep the camera absolutely secure till you release it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most versatile head for a Heavy Lens The product is for a Sigma 50-500 Telephoto lens on a heavy duty Manfrotto Tripod. What is great about it is its engineering which allows it to move effortlessly and to lock when necessary with little effort and complete control. I find little wrong with this device other than when unlocked in order to move it, it may sometimes require two hands to handle the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enough performace for 4X5 camera I'v been using Monoball B-1 for large format (4X5)film camera several years. This Monoball P-1 is lighter and lower profile than B-1. There is no sticking issues like B-1. P-1 seems to have enough satisfied performances for holding the large format camera stably and firmly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality useful ball head Very nice build quality, very stable. The adjustment knob was difficult to turn when setting the plate width.
    Date published: 2013-07-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius construction. This is genius construction. Heavier than P0 but very versatile. For more demanding situation. To go light sill P0 is sufficient and convenient. Both are great set for nearly any field requirements.
