Giottos MH1301 Overview

The Giottos MH-1301 Pro Series II Medium Ballhead with MH-656 Quick Release System is a medium-sized "socket & ball" head that has been carefully designed and manufactured to precisely position the camera easily and securely.

In order to cut back on its weight, this head features a hollowed out heavily anodized aluminum ball. The body shell (socket) follows a slimmer and lighter structure design, yet offers increased hardness. Three separate knobs provide optimal security and convenience. In addition to the main locking knob, it also features a friction control knob, and a separate locking knob for pan control.

The attached MH-656 is a clamp style quick release system that is compatible with plates that fit the Arca Swiss standard. It comes with horizontal and vertical bubble levels, and anti-twist reversible tabs on the plate to prevent slippage when using the head in a vertical position.

Features an independent calibrated pan bed
Hollowed out ball
Sliding calibrated quick release plate

question

How do I remove the ball head from the tripod?
Asked by: Anonymous
Be sure that the locking knob for pan control is tight (it's the smallest and lowest knob). Then turn the ballhead counter-clockwise. The ballhead should easily screw out with several turns.
