BH #FECB40D • MFR #CB-40D
FEISOL CB-40D Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate
Key Features
  • Ballhead with 33 lb Capacity
  • Dual-Caliper Lock for Stability
  • Integrated Panning Base
  • Seamless Friction Controlled Movement
The CB-40D Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate from Feisol is a lighter weight ballhead that inherits the two-locking-system design of previous Fiesol ballhead models. There's one system to lock the ballhead sphere, and a second to lock the base plate for even greater stability. This allows for the added capability of rotating the base plate while maintaining a locked sphere. And the CB-40D is lighter and more compact than its predecessors. It also includes an integrated Panning Base. The CB-40D can be used as a lightweight alternative for heavy-duty tripods, or as a more heavy-duty ballhead option for lighter traveler's tripods. The quick release system is Arca-Swiss compatible.

question

Can I use a Manfrotto 200PL quick release plate?
Asked by: Tom
The Manfrotto 200PL will not work with this ball head. You need an Arca-style quick release plate like the FEISOL QP-144750.

With Feisol CT-3441T tripod, would you be able to reverse fold the legs without splaying?
Asked by: Andrew
Hi Andrew - there is only minimal splaying with the CB-40D and the CT-3441T still fits in the bag which comes with it.

question

Is the FEISOL QR system compatible with the Kirk collar for the Nikon 80-400 mm ED lens and the Sunwayfoto L-bracket for the Nikon D600/610? This may seem to be a trivial question, but not all Arca-Swiss-compatible systems are truly compatible. Many thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it is compatible with the Kirk collar and the Sunwayfoto bracket.

question

Can this ball head support a Canon 300 f2.8 & 1D Mk IV on a Wimberley sidekick or Induro GHBA?
Asked by: Agni D.
Yes it can, the CB-40D has a 33 pound load capacity. That is more than enough for cameras like the C300 and 1D Mark IV.
