Arca Swiss is a highly respected name in serious photography.
Good design and high quality engineering are associated with it.
Not for everyone, but if you need precision control of a camera/lens and prefer a ball head on a tripod, this new product imported by Robert White may be worth a look. Here we go with the press release details:
NEW Arca Swiss Monoball Z2+
Robert White is pleased to announce a new Arca Swiss Monoball: The NEW Arca Swiss Monoball Z2+ DP
The new Z2+ DP is an improvement on the existing Z1 ball head. The new Z2+ ball head allows for adjustments in two separate directions.
A problem facing many photographers is how to adjust both the horizontal and vertical axes with just one ball head. The Z2+ addresses this challenge by adding a second tilt axis, allowing full vertical movement.
The load bearing capacity and range of movement have been improved. This Monoball tripod head is engineered so the camera cannot slide out of position accidentally. The improved technology allows for stable position of the camera in any possible angle and direction, with fully secure locking.
The Double Panorama feature means that in addition to the first panorama swivel unit, there is a second unit located between the aspherical ball and the quick-lock plate. The second panorama swivel unit is convenient when shooting full-panorama pictures. The plane of the fast locking mechanism can be precisely aligned with the ball head, allowing the camera to rotate on the horizontal axis.
- Precise horizontal alignment
- Full vertical tilt movement
- 360° rotation on the horizontal axis
- Monoball Classic locking system
The ARCA-SWISS Monoball Z2+ DP is the top model in the monoball series. It represents the fusing of a ball head and a 3-way (3D) head. When both locking knobs are released, the Z2+ moves like a regular ball head. But as soon as at least one of the two locking knobs is tightened, the camera can only be tilted in one direction. This prevents uncontrolled movements in other directions!
