The Explorer EX-XL Epic Explorer Extra Large Ball Head is the ultimate professional ball head built for the most challenging tasks. A key feature is a hollowed-out body and ball socket designed to minimize weight at just a total of 562g (19.8oz), while maximizing strength, durability, and load capacity at 40kg (88.2lbs). This makes the EX-XL Epic Explorer suitable for supporting larger telephoto lenses while being lightweight enough to carry and use with camera bodies and lens combinations of all sizes. Ball heads increase stability compared to other head types and provide faster, more accurate camera rotation for the photographers. The head tilts 90° for portrait orientation quickly and easily.
The large main adjustment knob features a rubber grip with friction control and a separate 360° panning clamp to assist with fast, precise adjustments, so you never miss the action. The ARCA / RRS compatible quick release clamp makes it compatible with a large range of quick release plates and L-brackets and includes an Explorer EX-60 QR plate in the box. A 3/8” thread socket and included 1/4”-3/8” brushing suits tripods from many manufacturers.
The clamp features the same hollowed-out design of the ball head and an extra-large release lock so the camera does not obstruct the release. The Explorer EX-XL Epic Explorer Extra Large Ball Head is CNC-machined from an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and anodized with an oxidation treatment that ensures a durable, high-quality finish.
