The compact professional 45LP Ball Head is a slightly smaller version of the 52LP. The 45LP is 3.2” (81mm) tall and has a base diameter of 2.3” (58mm). At just 1.1lbs (495g), the 45LP supports up to 20kg (44lbs) of equipment. The minimal sleek design and low-profile height make it easy to pack and carry.
Adjusting the camera on the PBH 45LP is done via two main knobs. The main lock knob is equipped with a tension dial that locks in a comfortable tension with the ball according to the weight of your equipment and preferences. The independent pan knob allows full 360-degree rotation for multi-stitched panoramas. Degree markers assist in determining precise pan movement. The PBH 45LP comes with two U-shaped drop notches that allow maximum flexibility in shifting 90 degrees for horizontal and vertical orientations. Complete with a leveling marker and sprit bubble, the photographer can easily determine placement on uneven ground.
The “Arca-Swiss” type quick shoe allows the photographer to easily put on or take off the camera. The head comes with U3/8" thread and includes U1/4" screw adapters that you can attach to most tripod setups. A built-in shoe stopper prevents the camera from falling off the tripod.
The replacement plate for this ball head is the QR 6510.
