The VEO BH-160S is an Arca compatible ball head that introduces a second pan axis under the quick release plate mount to deliver maximum control in framing your perfect shot.

The dual axis ball head allows you make micro adjustments using the most appropriate axis, without needing to loosen the main ball joint and risk losing the overall setup.  Alternatively, you can shoot panoramas whatever angle your tripod is set up at.

Despite weighing in at just 490g, this head has a maximum load capacity of 15kg and is machined from aircraft grade aluminium using the latest CNC technology.  This means that as well as holding almost any kit, the movement is incredibly precise due to the mirror smooth finish that CNC production delivers.

The head includes easy grip locking knobs, and the top pan locking knob and the main ball locking knob can be pulled out and repositioned to more convenient positions, without affecting the solidity of the head.   

With a 58mm diameter base and the ability to fit any tripod (either 1/4" or 3/8"), this head is perfect for full-sized tripods, whatever the brand and comes as standard with:
