The Kirk BH-3 Ball head with Quick Release is a rugged and well-designed ball head. It features the same efficiency of design and rugged construction as its bigger BH-1 brother, but only weighs in at 19 oz. It is rated to support up to 15 lbs and is ideal for use with pro SLR cameras with pro zoom lenses attached. In addition to the large single-action locking knob, the BH-3 also features two smaller knobs. One controls the 360deg. panning control and the other the amount of ball friction.
The BH-3 ball head comes with a universal quick release clamp that is compatible with all Arca-type plates. All external components are crafted from tough 6061-T aircraft aluminum including the solid, captive-design knobs and the internal metal parts are stainless steel and brass to avoid corrosion. The ball cup is produced from self-lubricating Delrin composite.
