About 3 Legged Thing Air Head 1

The 3 Legged Thing AirHed 1 Magnesium Alloy Ball Head (Blue) is a stylish head for a DSLR or film camera that encourages precise adjustments and fast setup changes. Composed of an aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium alloy, the sturdy head supports loads up to 17.6 lb, so it's suitable for all cameras and most lenses.

The AH1 head features a robust knurled knob that operates the Arca-style quick-release clamp. Additional knurled knobs manipulate the ball head's pan lock and ball/tilt lock. The pan-lock knob features an inset tension control that affects the play of the ball's movement.

The included quick-release plate, also magnesium, is compatible with BlackRapid's R-Strap camera slings, by way of its FastenR-T1 camera screw. The 1/4"-20 camera screw's flip-up D-ring allows you to tighten it to your camera easily. This ring allows you to attach your camera to an R-Strap and quickly move it from around your neck or shoulder to the AirHed 1 without removing the sling.

  • Double bubble on the rear of the quick-release assembly for precise leveling
  • 90deg. slot for portrait orientation

Questions about this item:

June D  Do you have to pull on release knob at same time turning it or does simply turning it allow for opening clamp?
Harvey K  To open the release it has a thumb screw you back off. There is a security bump. It's good for the price. The pivot screw tension is a little finicky but I've had it for a couple of years and no problems. I have it on a kullman carbon tripod and use it with a Canon 40D with a 28-85 tamaron. I have a L bracket from Really right stuff so the camera is verical on top of the head . Good luck
