The CARBONZX Carbon Fiber Gimbal Head with Accessories from Zenelli is a lightweight head made from 100% completely hollow carbon fiber. It includes a Save Lenses Lever, and a Quick-Release Lever. Hard-anodized aluminum and stainless steel hardware help ensure high resistance to wear and tear, and corrosion.
The gimbal has a full 360° range of motion for both the pan and tilt, and separate locks with tension control for each. The clamp is compatible with most Arca-type dovetail plates, and is opened and closed via a thumb screw. Grooves in the clamp allow for use of plates with safety stop screws. The base of the clamp can be adjusted 4.8" up and down to balance and adjust the nodal point.
The Quick-Release Lever allows you to quickly open and close the gimbal head's Arca-type clamp. The width of the lever can be adjusted and locked in place for different width plates, and a safety lock prevents the clamp from accidentally opening and releasing the plate. The Save Lenses Lever is mounted onto the vertical arm of the clamp and when activated, prevents the clamp from tilting forward, which might smash the lens into the tripod. This is especially useful when changing camera bodies. A padded shock absorber on the lever protects the carbon fiber from being damaged.
