Ball Heads

SIRUI K-30x Ballhead

R2 295

The SIRUI K30x tripod head offers simple, strong and precise functionality in a compact and tough design that can handle serious knocks. It is rated to carry 20kg, which is sufficient for almost any setup, yet weighs only 500g. One large and easily adjustable knob controls all motion, making it simple and easy to change your composition. Two smaller knobs control a panning base and the amount of friction applied to the ball.

The arca-swiss compatible quick-release clamp features a secondary release button that prevents any inadvertent disengagement of the camera/plate from the clamp, thereby adding to the head's overall security & stability. The K-20x is CNC-machined from an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and anodized with an oxidation treatment that ensures a durable, high-quality finish. All Sirui plates and heads are designed for use with Arca-Swiss style systems, which means that it is cross-compatible with components from all major manufacturers.

If you're looking for a tough and easy-to-operate tripod head that isn't too large or heavy, this is the go-to model. 

K10x, K20x, or K30x?

These three heads aren’t that far apart from each other in terms of size, weight and load rating, but you should never buy something larger than you really need. The K10x is perfect for all crop-sensor cameras or full frame cameras with lenses up to 100mm. The K20x is the go-to model for larger cameras like the 1Dx/D5 and can handle it with a 70-200mm f/2.8. If you plan to use something like a 1Dx/D5 with any lens larger than a 70-200mm f/2.8, the K30x is the right choice. If you go any larger than a 400mm f/4 lens, you should look at a Gimbal head like the SIRUI PH-20.
