Arca-Swiss d4 overview

  • 1Description

Tilt and pivot your camera in three-dimensional space with the Arca-Swiss d4m Tripod Head with a Classic Knob Quick Release, which combines the advantages of a spherical head and a 3D tilt head in one compact system.

Small at only 3.5" high and 1.5 lb, yet comprising a 75 lb leverage weight capacity (which accounts for the added stress of a heavy lens) and unobtrusive yet functional controls, the d4m can be used on a tripod like a normal spherical head. When both X- and Y-axes are open, one can move the camera freely. But, in contrast to a spherical head, X- and Y-axis movements can also be made separately, one at a time. And, if one of these axes is fixed, movements can be performed with even more precision.

The design of this head puts the center of rotation of X and Y- tilts in the same place, making the pivoting radius of these movements very small, thus allowing users to maintain perspectives during readjustment. Also, a self-locking shock absorption feature for the swivel function allows for near total compensation of the camera's weight.

Another notable feature is the separate 360° panning devices at the top and at the base of the head. The bottom device allows for camera alignment, while the top device facilitates the performance of accurate panoramas and rotational stitching. Two spirit levels, arranged at 90° angles underneath the upper panorama adjustment, are sufficiently visible to facilitate effective leveling, even from a low viewpoint. This head is compatible with either classic Arca-Swiss-type or newer Arca-Swiss MonoballFix-type camera plates.

    Arca-Swiss d4 reviews

    d4m Tripod Head with a Classic Knob Quick Release (Manual) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The greatest tripod head I've ever owned I purchased this head, after my Manfrotto 405 broke unexpectedly. The company lost my business after offering to fix it for $5 less than buying a brand new one. The cost of the Arca-Swiss D4M was a bit shocking, but I searched for other geared heads with no success. The cube was another option, but even more expensive. I have no regrets on this purchase. As expected it performs brilliantly! The combination of a ball head and a geared head is phenomenal. I don't use ball heads much, because I photograph architecture. I need micro-precision for composing images, and this piece of gear gets it done. The ball head is a side benefit that I rarely utilize. The design, build, and functionality is excellent.
