Markins Q20 Heavy Duty Ballhead w/ Knob Release

Available Today

The Markin Q20 is the top-of-the-line ballhead option from Markins. While we previously raved about the Markins M10, we had to find a new favorite when they discontinued the M10. We selected the Q20 due to its ability to hold pretty much any camera / lens combination we can attach to it. Shooting a Nikon D3x w/600mm f4 VR? No problem, throw a flash on there too for good measure! Markins rates the Q20 ballhead to hold up to 110 lbs. While we wouldn’t suggest quite that much payload, we don’t have any problem saying half that is reasonable. For the most flexibility with the various arca swiss-type plates out there, we’ve chosen the knob release quickshoe. That way, we can safely say all RRS plates, as well as all the arca swiss-types we carry, are fully compatible.

Please Note: This item does not include an arca-swiss type plate, which is required to use this tripod head. We do rent the plates separately, but the size plate you’ll need will vary depending on what size lens you’re using. We rent 4 different sizes to give you the most flexibility.

  • Q20 Ballhead with 3/8"-16 threads
  • Reducing bushing (3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20)

Arca-swiss plate not included.
