Ball head - for all directions
The advantage of a ball head is that you move your camera so freely in any direction. So you can be really fast with it when it matters. Say you see a golden eagle circling high in the air - capturing it in the field of view is not easy, but a ball head gives you a real chance! Instead of having to use multiple levers, you can intuitively move your camera to where it needs to go.
360 degree panorama scale
An accurate 360° pan is easy with this ball head. There is a line scale with two divisions between 0 and 180 degrees. Ideal for successful panoramic shots.
The horizon is now always straight
All your photos are taken at the perfect angle. With two spirit levels, parallel shots are possible in every direction - horizontal or vertical.
Quick-release plate and flat clamping
The quick-release plate lets you mount a camera or binoculars onto your tripod in seconds. The side clamping bolt, which fixes your instrument extremely firmly in place flat to the tripod, ensures a secure hold. The advantage - you can move the plate by about an inch in both directions. In addition, it also has a safety feature in case the clamp is not be fully tightened. Your valuable optics are always securely mounted on the OM8 ball head.
