Sirui has debuted the VH-10X video head, which adds a four-position panning feature including a free rotating zero setting.
Sirui said the new head has a load capacity 13.2 pounds, weighs 2.6 pounds and is constructed of high quality aircraft grade aluminum.
The VH-10X has smooth fluid movement combined with an advanced balancing system that’s adjusts 360-degrees horizontally and +90 degrees by -70 degrees vertically. It has a fully adjustable tilt drag knob and four-position panning drag including a free rotating zero setting.
The head has precision-machined lightweight aircraft grade aluminum construction and dual bubble levels for critical alignment. The counter-balance mechanism has a 4.4 pound capacity and a telescoping handle can be positioned on the right or left side of the head.
A safety lock system insures the camera will not slide off the head while adjusting the position of the plate. A quick release plate and padded carry case is included. It comes with a six-year warranty.
