About Sirui K-20X

The SIRUI K-20X Ball Head is precise, meticulously machined and perfect for professional photographers and enthusiasts alike for its world-class quality based on years' of accumulated experience of SIRUI and its innovative design. The K-X series ball head is applied with the best aerial material, machined by high-end CNC and coated with anodic oxidation on its exterior to achieve its superior quality. The interior locking system has a sphere tolerance of 0.01 mm and is equipped with orientation-memory locking dial; this quick-locking mechanism allows for easy access and use.

The 360-degree panel is integrated in the base which allows photographers to do panoramic or continuous shooting. The quick-release plate platform, adopting general sizes of international standards, is of the Arca-Swiss type, thus suitable for a variety of quick-release plates. Two bubble levels are included on the platform that serve as a measure of vertical and horizontal balance. A red safety button is also incorporated to prevent the quick-release plate from sliding off the platform easily; the plate can be released by pressing on the button.

The three knobs of adjustment (from the base and up, respectively) are the panoramic control knob (smallest), friction control and ball-locking knob (the biggest) and the plate-locking knob at the top. The K-20X Ball Head can support up to 25 kg (55.1 lbs) and is suitable for 35 mm and medium-format photographic cameras, DSLRs and digital or conventional type video camcorders.

Great sturdy head.


from Dallas Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I just received this product the other day and I am still getting used to it. It is very sturdy and seems to be something I will keep for a long time. I will review again after I use it for a while.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Looking at this for a Canon 5diii and a 100-400 or a 300 f/4. Is this tough enough? And are the QR plates Arco-Swiss compatable? What plate would you use on the tripod foot of the Canon 100-400 lens? I have only used a tripod on a limited basis and ant to make sure I know what is best. Thanks!
ALAN H  The qr plate in which the foot of the lens connects to is attached with a 1/4 -20 screw which is a standard in the industry ,this screw will thread into your lens mounting bracket and stay attached to it until you remove it .you can buy separate plates for this. It comes with one qr plate. The ball head will support 55 lbs. So it should hold up to a 400 mm lens no problem. The ball head is built well and very smooth . The qr plates I am not sure are compatible with arco -swiss but if I were to guess I would say no. Hope this helps ,I love mine
