The new monoball Z1g+ with a PLUS+ of outstanding virtues.
ARCA-SWISS has improved all aspects of the well-known Monoball Z1g, packing even more features into the lighter and tighter Monoball Z1g+.
The ARCA SWISS tripod head Z1g+ excells with well balanced holding and moving properties. Safe holding support and subtle positioning are the crucial functions of a tripod head, according to ARCA SWISS
Its newly engeneered Motion Related Gravity Control (MRGC) a variable and bi-directional drag, is independently operative on both axes and stabilized in all directions and with horizontal movement, the resulting friction remains constant, whereas with vertical movements the friction increases progressively.
Intelligent engeneering and precise manufacturing guarantee for a well distributed radial chucking.
With this in mind, the new monobll Z1g+ is, of course, not another primitive loosen/tighten clamp but a higly sophisticated device designed to simultanously give a strong hold while allowing smooth and accurate positioning of the camera.
The new monoball Z1g+ comes with an additional panorama above the ball, which allows a perfectly horizontal paning, regardsless of how the tripod has been placed
The Z1g+ is 30% smaller and lighter than it's Z1g predecessor and weighs in at 2.1 lbs. (960 grams).
