Key Features
  • Supports up to 44.1 lb (20 kg)
  • 1/4"-20 Camera Screw
  • 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 Bushing
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-element 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 along 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 has 360° panning. It weighs only 9.9 oz (280.66 g) and will support equipment up to 44.1 lb (20 kg).

Is this an all aluminum construction? The version BH #ARP0 with clamp is listed as "all aluminum construction", but this version BH #ARMPOPS is not listed as such. Do the two versions of the Arca P0 head differ in the material used for the main body?

This has an all-aluminum construction.

About how many degrees up or down can the head ...

About how many degrees up or down can the head tilt before you must use the drop notch? I ask because if mounted on a tripod with no column to rotate, once in the drop notch you will have to rotate the entire tripod to make any fine adjustment in the rotation since the panning is on top (good for shooting level panoramas but not so once in the drop notch).
Asked by: James M
Even when the head is tilted into the drop notch you can still rotate the head 360 degrees in either direction with no obstructions. The drop notch is part of the head and thus rotates with the head, so there is no problem there.

Does current production model have degree ...

Does current production model have degree markings around the circumference of the panning head as some customer photos and product photos of the versions of the Monoball P0 that come complete with QR clamps? It would be odd that this version would not have degree markings. Are the product photos of this version up-to-date?
Asked by: James M
the model requires the panning and quick release device that has the degree markings.

question

Other sites show an additional picture that has a brass bushing screwed into one of two holes on the top of the raised part of this head. Other pictures show the top of this head as smooth. Can anyone explain what these holes are and if they are included with this head? I intend to pair this head with the RRS B2-LR II plate and am hoping that the extra holes line up with this plate so that I can used extra screws to secure them together. Can anyone else confirm?
Asked by: Colin S.
I have the RRS B2-LRII clamp and had to purchase the Flat-head screw, M6-1.0x25 from RRS for $1 each to make this work. If you do a google search, there are a couple of posts and websites that detail how to remove the hex head screw from the ball head. I also purchased 2 teflon tipped 1/4 -20 screws from amazon to aid in stability (the B2-LR II clamp has 2 extra holes so it can be mounted onto a PG-02 Pano-Gimbal head). Also, I recommend leaving the black washer on the P0 Head. RRS support was also helpful if you're still having problems. Good luck, the P0 is a good ball head and works well with the RRS clamps.

question

hello again, i'm going to purchase this head & planning to put an RRS clamp in here. My RRS is a 1/4-20 screw as it came with the BH55 ballhead (RRS). Is it possible to directly fit it into the PO ? Or do i need a bushing adaptor ? another option is the Sunway photo Discal Clamp DDY-64i. However i much prefer using my RRS clamp but just not sure whether it will fit. I do know there is a M6 model but i dont want to spend on it if i dont have to. Thanks again

question

I own a clamp from RRS (model B2-Pro II) which came with a M6 screw. Can I use it with this ballhead? Do I need a different screw? If it means removing the 1/4 -20 camera screw we see on the picture, does it require special tools?Thank you
Asked by: MarcB83
I use this head with an RRS B2 LR II H clamp. I had planned on removing the 1/4-20 stud that comes pictured with this head. It is one of those studs that has a hex flange flush with the base, and looks like it is removable. However, I put as much torque on it as I felt comfortable applying, but it didn't budge. I wanted to use it right away, so I threw a 3/8 bushing adapter on it and threaded the clamp onto that. I meant to try removing that stud again because using the m6 screw would be the right way to do it, but it has functioned fine for close to a year, so I forgot about it. I use it on a Gitzo Basalt tripod with my toyo 45cf and DSLR gear up to a 300mm and it's solid and light. I like the head a lot. Switched from gitzo heads. Might not be good for bigger lenses.

question

I just purchased this item from B&H. There are no directions. I assume you loosen the silver knob to pan the head, but all that happens is the silver part unscrews all the way and falls off, with no loosening of the top part of the head. I've thought about using a vice grips to turn the black part into which the silver handle threads, but I do not want to damage it. Any help would be appreciated.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yea, this is NOT obvious. the silver teardrop knob does loosen the head to pan but what pans is the stud and the (slightly) raised black inner piece that surrounds the stud, NOT the outer piece. Put a clamp/camera on the head and you'll see it pans when the silver knob is loose.
