Sirui K-10x Ball Head

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.

Will this fit on a Manfrotto Beefree? If yes it appears the diameter of this ball head is 49mm and the manfrotto base is 40mm. Will this affect the stability?
Asked by: Ed S.
Sure it will fit. The top of the tripod and base of the ball head are both milled in the factory to be perfectly flat. They don't need to match perfectly. If they do, that is a plus for looks only. Tripods and heads use either 3/8 or 1/4 inch thread and adapters are very inexpensive.

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= target= _blank ></a>
