Arca-Swiss Monoball P0 with Panning System
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).

Does the AS P0 fit well on the Gitzo Series 2 ...

Does the AS P0 fit well on the Gitzo Series 2 Traveller tripod in the folded position, so folded with head between the legs?
Asked by: Alex
Yes, it will fold up, but it gets in the way a bit, so it won't be flushed.

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.

Can the drop notch be used at an angle of less than 90 degrees and locked in place? I want a horizontal orientation but with the camera pointed sharply up or down. My RRS BH-30 ballhead with drop notch certainly allows this -- does the P0?
Asked by: Mark
Yes. If you orient the camera body so it is perpendicular at a 90° angle to the notch on the ball head (and the lens is parallel to the notch), this would allow you to place the camera horizontal to the horizon while angling the camera up/down for your composition needs.

Lovely ballhead, just purchased. But I would like to remove the 1/4"-20 screw poking up from the centre, I just cannot get enough torque to attach a stable clamp. Can the screw be removed? -- not much room for a socket wrench!!
Asked by: Mark
What clamp are you trying to put on it? I put the Really Right Stuff B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (60mm)on it with no problems.

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.

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.
