The Giottos MH1302 is a light/medium-duty ballhead that’s great for use with telephoto zoom lenses. Key features include:

  • LPTG-recommended load capacity: 10 lbs.

  • Sliding QR plate

  • Independent pan bed

  • Arca-Swiss compatible

Light/Medium Load Capacity. The manufacturer rates this head to support up to 13.2 lbs. Due to its slim neck and its own rather lightweight build (weighs under a pound), we wouldn’t recommend pushing that past 10 lbs. Think DSLR + 100-400mm/150-600mm type lens.

Independent Pan Bed. The MH-1302 offers smooth movement with an infinitely adjustable friction knob. The base rotates independently from the rest of the head, making it a good option for quick panning.

Arca Swiss-Type Compatible. The MH-655 QR clamp features a bubble level both inside the tightening knob, as well as under the QR plate. It’s Arca-Swiss type plate compatible, and is sent with its own cork-lined lens plate.
