Acratech Long Lens Head
Key Features
  • Supports Lenses as Long as 600mm f/4.0
  • Arca-Style Quick-Release Clamp
  • CNC-Machined
  • Engraved Degree Markings
The Acratech Long Lens Head is designed to support super-telephoto lenses as long as 600mm f/4.0. The CNC-machined Long Lens Head weighs less than 1 lb and features an Arca-style quick-release clamp that's compatible with plates from manufacturers such as Arca-Swiss, Kirk, R.R.S., and many others.

The clamp is indexable, which means it can be rotated in 90° increments by loosening the rubberized knob. This enables easy use of cameras without lenses that have lens collars, and facilitates 90° sideways tilt (rather than front-to-back tilt). While the head is specifically designed for use with extremely long telephoto lenses that are mounted with a lens collar, this feature ensures that even if you're using multiple cameras in the field, you don't need to transport other heads besides the Long Lens Head when you want to mount a camera body (with a smaller lens) directly to your tripod & head.

The tension control is fully adjustable to suit heavier and lighter loads, and the head tilts 90° in two directions. Degree markings are engraved, for precise control over panoramic adjustments. All knobs are secured so they cannot vibrate loose and fall off.

What is the difference between this Long Lens Head 1160 and the Panoramic Head 1165?
Asked by: Bruce
The Panorama Head has degree marking on the tilt axis and a pointer ring on the panning base. These features allow you to do multi row panoramas but it can also be used as a long lens head. It is a Long Lens Head with added features.

This may be a dumb question but how do you determine you have returned the head to completely level once you have tilted it?
Asked by: Zachary
If the bubble level on the inside is level, your rotation will be level. To level the top, use the level in your camera. If you are shooting an older camera without an in camera level, there are hots hoe levels that can be purchased to level the top. Our panorama head has degree markings on the tilt, with zero markers on both sides. Maybe you should consider that unit.

Can the Arca clamp be removed and an RRS lever clamp substituted for it?
Asked by: Albert
The Quick Release Clamp can be removed with an Allen wrench, but you would have a 3/8" diameter hole without threads in it. We will soon have a Lever Quick Release Clamp for our Long Lens Heads and our Panoramic Heads.

Does this come with a quick release clamp or do I need to purchase one?
Asked by: Kevin
The quick release clamp is built into the unit, and operates very well. It will swivel 90 degrees, as well, by loosening and retightening. Your camera/lens needs its own plate to fit into the clamp. This is a great unit. Used with D850 and 150-600 Tamron G2 lens in Botswana and South Africa, and it held up well. It is lightweight but holds even fairly heavy equipment very solidly.
