The new generation of tripod heads uses a patented system to maintain the balance of any camera/lens combination up to 45kg
Spirit level alignment
The FlexShooter heads can be aligned horizontally very swiftly. The main ball has its own spirit level, while the secondary ball can only move over two axes.
The head is very compact, which works very well for very low-angle shots and will also counteract the vibration of a heavy telephoto lens.
When you have accurately determined the composition and you fix the head, it often tends to shift again. By securing the ball from the inside, the FlexShooter has no problem with this.
The resistance in both balls is precisely adjustable and very even.
The heads are manufactured and assembled with very tight tolerances in the FlexShooter factory in Europe, where each head is individually tested and checked.
Last but not least: the clamp is a beautifully machined large Quick Release Lever which makes a change in balance, camera position and mounting/unmounting of the equipment a breeze!

Thanks Flexshooter and mrjangear for their prompt assistance to guide me to settle the shaking issue. It’s well set and solid now. I am enjoying this compact and lightweight ballhead now.

I just got this Flexshooter Pro and putting it to my #3 tripod & Sony A1 + 200-600 lens to use. Most things are good but found there is around 1-2 mm shaking gap between bottom base and main body ( where is the place for rotation ). Is there anything I did not well set or something else wrong. The serial # of this Flexshooter is A2777. Appreciate your attention and assistance.

Je réside au Gabon et j’ viens d’y recevoir ce fameuse tête. J’ai passé des mois à chercher le bon compromis entre “pendulaire” et autres ballhead, sans parler de la base de nivellement. Cette tête remplace 3 en 1 pour un poids divisé par 2. Elle est monté sur mon trépied “3 Legged Things” gamme Winston.
Je l’ai monté et testé ce weekend car je pratique la photo de paysage et la photo animalière. Equipement : Nikon D850 motorisé + objectifs Nikkor 500 PF ED VR F/5.6 (4kg)… Enfin, j’ai trouvé ce qu’il me faut et en plus c’est du solide… Merci Flexshooter et mrjangear.
