The Opteka Sidewinder is a fast
to set up and an easy to use tripod / monopod head, designed for lightweight
video or still photography. The very act of taking your hand away from the grip
locks the head into position, which eliminates the extra step of having to
tighten a knob or lever before being ready to shoot. You have immediate access
to half of a sphere in which to position your camera. The tension of the ball
can be adjusted to accommodate the load weight. The included quick release plate
allows you to remove your camera at a moment's notice.
The Opteka Sidewinder can support up to 6.6 lbs. For example, that means 35mm up
to an 80-200mm f/2.8 lens. This head is ideal for both tripods and monopods.
