DS-20 Fluid Head

Multi-Step Pan & Tilt Fluid Drag System

  • The multi-step Fluid Drag system ensures smooth, consistent fluid drag control across all temperature ranges and through a wide range of light and heavy settings. By being independent of payload weight, provides smooth "starts" and dead "stops" for precise framing without any backlash. The system is fully sealed within sub-assemblies for a leakproof, low maintenance life.

Preset Counterbalancing

  • Uses a special designed counterbalanced system, to neutralize the effect of payloads and their centers of gravity. The built-in preset counterbalance system optimizes tilt control in the intended capacity range.

Quick Release Camera Platform

  • Fitted with a precision, sliding quick release camera platform with self-engaging action. Ensuring rapid camera attachment, while the built-in safety lock guarantees camera safety during setup and pull-down

Tripod Legs

  • Built-in bubble for horizontal leveling
  • 75mm / 3" bowl base
  • Double extension design
  • Maximum height 61.0-inch (not including head)
  • Toggle clamping system
