Arca Swiss Monoball P0 Hybrid with Quickset Fliplock Device
The Arca-Swiss P0 Hybrid is a new version of the lightweight and compact tripod head. It's the perfect solution in applications requiring fast but precise adjustments, such as for architectural, table top, macro and panoramic photography.
All P0 tripod heads are fitted with an aspherical ball and a patented internal locking mechanism based on three planetary locking elements. These locking elements apply uniform force around the ball ensuring smooth movements of the camera in an axis.
Above the head's locking mechanism, Arca-Swiss has now integrated two self-locking geared segments, each of which can precisely adjust up to a range of +/- 10° in the X or Y axes. This allows the photographer to adjust or level the camera coarsely with the ballhead using the P0 locking ring, and then be able to fine tune their camera position precisely in both axes, using the MicroMetric gear driven knobs. These mechanisms have been designed so the camera moves within a circular arc over the centre. Additionally, if the nodal point is adjusted for, there will be virtually no change in the distance to the subject that can be seen in the viewfinder or display. After the alignment and leveling of the camera, a panoramic swivel device placed above the two axes, allows for a completely level rotation of 360°, with no further adjustment of the camera required.
