Sirui K-30X Overview

The Sirui K-30x 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 has a rubberized surface that prevents camera twist when it's tilted 90°.

The interior ball locking of the K-30x 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 66 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-30x is CNC-machined from an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and anodized with an oxidation treatment that ensures a durable, high-quality finish.

Two bubble levels (horizontal and vertical) on the quick-release platform ensure that your framing hews to the horizon in either portrait or landscape orientation

will the safety pins on a Wimberley plate (P-20 ...

will the safety pins on a Wimberley plate (P-20 in my case) work in the clamp with this,sirui K-30X, ball head?
Asked by: Paul
Sirui has a different safety stop system that does not use the safety stop screws typical of most plates. But if the plate is longer than top of the K-30x ball head (about 2.5") then the stop screws would hang over the ball head. That should work in the case of the P-20. Sirui has a safety pin that sticks up to the underside of the plate. If the underside of the plate has a cut out big enough for the Sirui pin then that would work also. I don't have the P-20, but I can tell you some of my plates(50-60mm long) work with the Sirui K-30x with the safety stop screws removed.

Ball heads are not the best choice for video. A better choice would be a pan head like the Sirui VA-5, VH-10 or VH-15.
