The MH1300 is a heavy duty ballhead capable of supporting 20 pounds.
Movement is smooth and the friction knob is infinitely adjustible making control of even a heavy lens and camera easy. The base rotates for panoramic shots. We send the ballhead with a Giottos MH-57 Quick release plate that has a built in bubble level, and matching lens plate.
The Giottos MH1300 head is capable of supporting a professional level body and a 300 f2.8 lens. For larger lenses, and for those who wish to use a Wimberley Sidekick, we recommend the Markins Q20 ballhead.
