The new SBH-280 DQ Ball Head is made from finely machined and carefully anodized hardened aluminum parts that are designed to give many years of trouble-free smooth operation. This SLIK ball head features an easy to use, single knob operation to lock or release the ball connected to the camera plate. The knob is oversized and has a well-textured surface for a sure grip in any conditions.
When the head is released, not only does the ball portion of the head move freely, the main body encasing the head can turn on its base for quick and easy movement as well. The base of the head has easy-to-read degree marking for panoramic photography.
The SBH-280 DQ has the exclusive SLIK feather-light magnesium alloy quick release system, which allows a quick release plate to remain on the camera at all times. A feature of the SLIK DQ quick release system is the low-profile camera plate that will not interfere when mounted on vertical grips. The plate also has an extra wide camera lock wheel to make mounting and removing the plate a breeze.
Bubble levels mounted on dual axis allow make accurate leveling of the camera easy.
The SBH-280 is capable of handling a digital or 35mm film SLR camera.
