The Cullmann Magnesit MB8.3 Ball Head with MX445 Quick-Release Platform is an extremely sturdy ball head for any camera/lens combination, including medium format models and DSLRs outfitted with heavy lenses. Specified to support loads up to 66 lb, the Magnesit MB8.3 features a large 2.1"-diameter ball.
The MB8.3 head features separate knobs for ball and pan lock.
