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.

question

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.

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>

question

Would this ball head hold a Canon 7D MkI and Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens steady without creep when locking in place? I've heard good things about this ball head, but want to make sure it will stand up to the weight of a super telephoto lens. Thanks in advance for any help!
Asked by: Heather H.

question

Looking to buy this mostly for multiple shots for stitching panoramas. Which should I purchase for such purpose, the K-10X or K-30X? I'm on budget, trying to find cheaper solution. This is for Nikon D90 and lighter cameras.Thanks!
Asked by: Leon M.
I think the K-10X is fine. I use it for a Canon 5D/7D with out problem.

question

I'm trying to choose between Sirui G20x and Sirui K10x. the only difference I can see is that G20x has a separate friction control, while K10 has the friction control incorporated in the ball-locking knob. Is it better to have a separate or incorporated friction control? Which type provides a more secure lock?
Asked by: E L.
I have the k-10x and I like the large ball locking knob. What I would actually look at is the load it can handle. If the G-20 can handle a bigger load I would get that one. The K-10 couldn't handle my Canon 5.6 100-400 lens. I also ended up buying an L bracket for the camera. It stays on tighter than the litttle bracket that comes with the ball head.

question

Will this fit 501pl plate?
Asked by: Feli H.
Hi Feli;If it is an Arca plate, it should fit, but my personal experience would tell me to contact B&H, they are always helpful & experienced to answer you with this specific question, I did try to check with Questions & Answers, but didn't see anything relevant, hope this helps.
