The Arca-Swiss Monoball P0 Tripod Head with Panning System is a unique knobless tripod head featuring a design that abandons traditional locking knobs and replaces them with a three-elements geared locking system. This system allows the head to be positioned at any angle. The Monoball P0 locking elements apply a uniform force around the ball ensuring smooth camera movements in any axis. When the camera is placed directly on the ball and not on its neck, the movements are as stable as if they were on a rubber ring. The aspherical ball also prevents sudden camera movements. The panning system is located just below the camera mount, providing a panoramic rotation that remains in line with the vertical. The Monoball P0 has a tilt ball range of 90°, and 360° panning. It weighs only 9.9 oz (280.66 g) and will support equipment up to 44.1 lb (20 kg).

    Monoball P0 with Panning System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solid, simple, lightweight. Rock solid and relatively lightweight ball head. I use it on my travel tripod. I love the simplified controls of this head. No knobs to end up facing backwards, or get in the way of setting up quickly for shots. I find this essential for travel and landscape photography. Accompanying pieces in my travel tripod setup: Legs: Sirui T-1205x Clamp: Really Right Stuff B2-LR 40 M6 To mount the RRS clamp, you have to removing the permanent center bolt - you'll nee a 7/16 ratchet for this. For me, it took about one minute and was way easier than other web tutorials had led me to believe. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More convenient than other ball heads Using this on a Gitzo G1325 with Nikon D700. Longest lens 70-200mm f/2.8. Doing mostly landscape, and some product shots. To me twisting the ring is easier than fiddling with knobs on the Arca-Swiss B1, or Markins M20 I have. Don't have to reach around for the knob that changes side when shooting down or up. The design of the P0 is that of a normal ball head turned upside-down. As a result, the pan mechanism is on the top. If you level the camera, the pan axis is also level. This is great for panoramas. All you need is a bar and L-bracket for lodal point adjustment. This is not a heavy ball head. Great for hiking, but I wouldn't go over 200mm with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great concept for a ball head. This ball head is very well balanced since the camera is mounted close to the center of the ball. Because there are no knobs to loosen the ball it is very easy to adjust without looking. And since the panning mechanism is on the top, you can mostly forgo leveling the tripod legs, and just worry about the top. That makes it very easy to set up panoramas. The head is very lightweight, yet can handle fairly large lenses. The camera screw can be removed with a 11mm thin-walled socket, and has an M6 thread. You can attach a quick release clamp with a screw from the top after removing it. You'll probably need a shorter screw than the one that comes with the clamp you buy, so you'll probably need to make a trip to the hardware store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my use. This is my fourth ball head and the best by far. I shoot nature, landscape and wildlife. Birds are my passion. My heaviest rig is my Nikon 300 f4 with 1.4 tc and Nikon D7100. The Monoball P0 handles it effortlessly. After a few minutes of shooting in the field, I knew that I'd finally found what I'd been looking for. With only the panning and clamping knobs, the ring release and tighten motion became second nature. No need to turn any knobs while shooting. I can't imagine going back to a regular style of head. The head is smooth and locks like a prison cell door when needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design and quality This is a great ballhead. Very compact. I love the tension adjustment ring vs a knob. No need for a separate minimum tension knob. Very strong - holds my D610 with Nikon 300mm f/4 effortlessly. Only gripe is the non-captive pano lock knob but not a big deal as it would take a lot of turns to have it fall off. *Note* - if you have the version without the clamp with the intention of installing your own clamp using a 30mm M6, be prepared for the force required to dislodge the reversible screw that is installed in the P0. There is medium duty threadlock on it. You'll need a thin-walled 11mm socket which fits perfectly in the recess. Make sure the pano lock knob is fully tightened. Before you try to remove the screw, place the socket over it and give the end of the socket a few hard hits with a larger wrench. Watch your fingers!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Handy, Light, Compact Can take the place of a ballhead, leveling base, and panning clamp thus saving a lot of bulk compared to comparable setup. I wrote a longer review - maybe it shows up soon, but otherwise: what Ben Jacobsen said in his review. BTW, this version has the markings for panning even though the product photo does not show them. Use a thin shelled 11mm socket to get the screw out to add a decent clamp and secure it with an M6 screw. Arca's screw clamp is perfect but has the bubble-level oriented so it can't be seen when a camera is mounted - duh!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ballhead Excellent ball head once you get used to not looking for the knob on the side that is typical on most ball heads. I'm coming from using a Kirk ball head for over 15 years, and muscle memory takes a while to retrain. It's great for doing panoramas, the head levels independently from the legs, so it's quick to level and do a quick pano. Has huge holding capacity and is lightweight. I bought the base model and added the Kirk 1 3/4 plate with level bubble on it, which is great for leveling the head even with the camera attached. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunningly Simple Personally I have used nothing but ball heads since the mid 1980's. My first was always a stinker. I watched a pro photographer use this ball head in conjunction with a Really Right Stuff MH-02 LR clamp. Other ball heads had bubble levels and always worked but nothing I have used has been as simple to level the head at the price I paid. Two gizmos to operate and the head is level without the expense of a quick leveling head sold by some companies. Am I happy with the Arca Swiss head? Yes in combination with the RRS clamp and I am ready for pano's or just level tripod mounted photos with any of my Canon or Fuji cameras. Stunningly Simple for me. Your milage may vary.
