Arca-Swiss d4 Overview

Tilt and pivot your camera in three-dimensional space with the Arca-Swiss d4 Tripod Head with FlipLock Lever Quick Release, which combines the advantages of a spherical head and a 3D tilt head in one compact system.

Small at only 4.3" high and 1.8 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 d4 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.

In addition to manual operation, the d4 also offers the precision of separate gear-driven vertical/horizontal movements when the locking levers are fixed, with quick release clutches for fast, large adjustments.

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.

What's the benefit and/or difference between the FlipLock release and the Classic Knob release?
Asked by: Jeffrey
When using the FlipLock release, one is able to mount a quick release plate and lock it in place in literally two seconds, and it is secure. To release a mounted plate, the FlipLock allows for a very fast release. When using the Classic Knob release, one needs to be careful to wind the knob, and wind a bit more to make sure it is tight and will not move. This process could take up to 20 seconds, and the user may go back to check the tightness, over and over again during the project. Using the Classic Knob release to release the plate is easy and fast . One just needs to unwind.

Does this head need an additional leveling base? I know that the cube did not, so wondering if this one does.
Asked by: Kevin
The answer is; it depends. You can make the top plate perfectly level for static shots. However, if you pan, you either readjust the head, use a leveling head or level with the legs.
