Sirui K-10x Ball Head

BH #SISUK10X • MFR #K10X
Sirui K-10x Ball Head
Key Features
  • Knobs for Pan, Tilt & Tension
  • 44 lb Load Capacity
  • Quick-Release Plate with Anti-Twist Pins
  • Arca-Style Clamp for Quick Release
The Sirui K-10x Ball Head is an extremely sturdy head with control knobs for pan, tilt, and tension, plus an Arca-style clamp for the included quick-release plate. The pan, tilt, and quick-release knobs are all separate, while the tension knob is integrated into the ball-locking (tilt) knob. The head tilts 90° for portrait orientation, and the quick-release plate features two pop-up pins that prevent camera twist when it's tilted 90°. There's also a video pin on the plate to keep camcorders from twisting.

The interior ball locking of the K-10x head has a sphere tolerance of 0.01mm, and it's equipped with an orientation-memory locking dial. This helps yield a high load capacity of 44 lb. The quick-release clamp features a secondary release button that prevents any inadvertent disengagement of the camera/plate from the clamp, thereby adding to the head's overall security & stability. The Arca-style platform conforms to standard sizes, so you can use compatible plates from other manufacturers.

The three control knobs allow a photographer to exercise extremely fine control over the orientation of the camera, whether it's a DSLR, 35mm, medium-format camera, or even a camcorder. Pan, for instance, can be adjusted while the tilt stays locked, enabling precise movement that's measurable – there are degree markers at the panning base for panoramic photography.

The K-10x is CNC-machined from an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and anodized with an oxidation treatment that ensures a durable, high-quality finish.

Will this head work with canon r7 and canon 500 f/4 mk l. Lens is around 8 lbs
Asked by: Jimmy
The Sirui K-10x Ball Head has a payload capacity of 44lb, which should support the combined weight of the Canon EOS R7 Mirrorless Camera (B&H # CAER7) and the Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS (Image Stabilizer) USM Lens (B&H # CA5004LISEF) with the Canon Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R (B&H # CAMAEFRFCR). It's important to adapt this system with sturdy tripod legs as well.

question

Is this head sturdy enough for a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR Lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
It won't break but won't be very useable. I use the Novoflex Magicball for heavy lenses. It's the best. <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/153279-REG/Novoflex_MB_Magic_Ball_with_Socket.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/153279-REG/Novoflex_MB_Magic_Ball_with_Socket.html</a>
