    ARCA SWISS Monoball p0 -

    Anyone using this head?
    ARCA SWISS Monoball p0 with Panning System

    I am retooling my tripod outfit and have been considering this head as a potential candidate.

    Could it handle a 501cm up to 250mm lens, and a Sinar F1 with a larger 300/360mm lens?

    I have no way to see one in person. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    I have and am very satisfied with an Arca Swiss B1 head. Not the same one your asking about but thought it may be of help.

    I have the z1-sp and it will hold a 400mm Pentax 67 lens (~8 lbs) attached to a P67II off axis with zero sag or vibration on a Gitzo G1348.

    Thank you fotch and Tom. How much does a B1 or Z1 weigh? I have a Giottos of similar design that weighs more then I want to carry these days.

    Appears not many are using this new head yet.

    C,
    The head will handle 45lbs! No problem at all. I use with an Arca Swiss field camera with up to a 450mm lens in #3 shutter. The f1 has such a large base though, that i would recommend the P1 instead of P0 as the plates for the P0
    are very small. Rod

    Mine weighs about 1.7 lb. and the rated capacity is 90 lb. Purchase used for about $100. Its actually the earlier version and called the Monoball, later called the B1. So its old and yet, works great.

    I have the p0 which I use for my 35mm cameras. For a view camera you may want to look at the p1 which has a tension control setting and is aslo available with a double pan feature. Check out Precision Camera Works website for more info an Arca-Swill: http://www.precisioncameraworks.com/...arca_core.html

    Thank you very much Rod, David and Fotch.

    Am I reading this correct, that the p0 uses a different style of quick release plate then the p1? Whereas the p1 uses the traditional Arca quick release plates?

    P0 seems to work with a large format camera

    Galerie-photo.org, the reference large format photography website in french, has recently published a hands-on review of the p0 ballhead. To summarize it, the guy seems to be very happy with the p0 coupled with a light gitzo tripod, with various 4x5 inches view cameras on it. That isn't surprising, as AS seems to be rather conservative about charge capacity and as p0 is rated 20 kilos.
