Benro GD3WH 3-Way Geared Head
Accurately position your camera with the 4.3" tall GD3WH 3-Way Geared Head from Benro, which has three independent geared movements that move with precision by turning the knob in slow increments. To quickly position a camera without the gears, simply pull the knob outwards to move the camera into the desired angle.
The 1.9 lb Arca-type compatible head is constructed from a durable magnesium alloy, and its carbon steel and bronze gears provide smooth operation. With the head's load capacity of 13.2 lb, it can hold a mirrorless to medium format camera with ease, and the three bubble levels ensure accurate leveling of the camera in any axis.
For any photographer who needs absolute precision in his or her photography, a geared head for your tripod is an essential piece of kit.
Landscape, architectural, even macro photographers will appreciate a geared head’s ability to minutely fine-tune your compositions and frame a shot to perfection.
They are slower to use than a ball head, which is quick and flexible, but precision photographers practice a slower form of photography.
And in a way, if precision is what you need, then a geared head can really speed up your workflow.
The Benro GD3WH three-way geared tripod head can withstand a payload of 6kg (13.2lb) and offers +90/-30 degrees head movement both up and down and for landscape tilt.
On top is an Arca-style quick release plate, and there are three spirit levels at various positions to help you ensure your camera is level.
It measures 145 x 139 x 109mm, with a base diameter of 52mm, and weighs 870g (1.92lb).
In terms of controls, on top you have a gear-driven side tilt knob. Below that is a gear-driven pan rotation knob with a panning scale. And around the corner from the pan knob is a gear-driven front and back tilt knob and another scale.
Each knob is set within a gear disengage wheel that allows you to quickly make big change in position without having to cycle through all the increments.
