The Vanguard ALTA GH-100 Pistol Grip Ball Head from Vanguard is designed for action photography. By squeezing the ergonomic handle, the hold on the ball releases, allowing the camera angle to be quickly and easily positioned. Once released the handle it automatically locks into place.
The magnesium ball head features two panning axes, which are located at the base of the head and the other just under the quick release plate. Dual bubble levels provide precise positioning in vertical or horizonal orientation. The panning base, with its separate panning lock, rotates a full 360°, and moves freely to follow a fast-paced subject. The second base has 72-click points with 5° intervals, which allows a camera to create panoramic photographs. Moreover, the ball has a lateral tilt of -32 to 90° and a frontal tilt of -8 to 90°.
The pistol grip itself can also rotate 360° vertically to 8 pre-set positions for comfortable use at any angle while shooting. A robust load capacity of 6 kg and adjustable tension control prevents camera creep and uncontrolled movement. The Arca-type quick release receiver incorporates a secure dual-locking quick-shoe mechanism and is compatible with the included QS-60 V2 quick release plate, in addition to other Arca-type compatible plates, brackets and accessories.
