About Acratech Leveling Base

The Acratech Leveling Base fits between the tripod (or stand) and the tripod head, and can be used with any tripod that features a 1/4" head screw. This device allows for the photo or video head to be quickly leveled, independently from the tripod.

At its center is an oilless and greaseless ball that will not attract or hold dirt and debris. It allows 10° movement in any direction, and features smooth knob action for easy and secure positioning.

Great leveling base, solid lightweight! i have got more gear from this company, it simply delivers what is promised!


WOW, Great Product


from Vista Ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use it under a Gimbal and wanted to keep it light (gimbal is heavy) very useful. Set the legs fairly level, level with the Acratech, mount gimbal and go; works great and now Panning is in level.

Pricey, but fun


from Wichita, KS  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've always thought a tripod that swivels with a level on the head was enough for landscapes...this leveling base changed my mind! Easy to use, but oh what a difference! Now I can even stitch really wide landscapes together without a lot of juggling and making do. An excellent but expensive product that is worth the money once you make the plunge.

I can't do without it.


from Ann Arbor, MI

I was in need of an easy leveling device after fumbling with my tripod and a spirit level to get the tripod head horizontal, which was time consuming. This device is for me the best choice I could find on the market; it is easy to mount, easy to adjust and to trust. I can’t do without it anymore. Be careful not to loosen the main knob more than a fraction of a turn from firmly tight to be able to control the friction between jaw and ball head when adjusting the leveling base.

great tool


from USA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this to put under my gimbal head so I could nice level shots when on unlevel ground. It's very well made and very light weight. I plan on buying another one and a ball head from Acratech.
