Arca-Swiss 801211 overview

  • 1Description

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 60.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hassle free combination Purchased the Arca-Swiss Monoball P0 (BASE) along with - Really Right Stuff B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (60mm) This RRS clamp screws directly to the stud with the Arca-Swiss 3/8"-16 Bushing (which is provided with the Monoball) for a hassle-free set-up. Would recommend this approach if you do not already have a clamp you intend to mount. Not cheap but no regrets. Also keep in mind that you will need: Loctite Heavy Duty Threadlocker, 0.2 oz, Blue 242, Single (available on Amazon) A little bit of this will keep the plate from swinging when you engage or release the clamp lever - but allow removal of the clamp. Hope this is of some help.

    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 Unique Monoball I bought this monoball because I needed a lightweight but solid performing tripod head for travel. It has performed flawlessly. I have found it to be very smooth. It does have a short learning curve for efficiently setting the elevation. I did not get the quick release version as I wanted to minimize weight. It is easier to attach to the camera or lens that it appears when you first look at it and there were no issues with the camera coming loose when panning. It quick lens or camera changes are needed get one with the quick release plates. But I am happy with this version without the plates. It is very solidly constructed and works perfectly.

    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!
