    The Uniqball UBH45XC offers users of super telephoto lenses all the smooth movements of a top quality ball head plus the ability to shoot perfectly levelled pan shots - all built-in. Extremely strong but lightweight, the UBH45XC comes with an X-Cross Arca-Swiss pattern quick release, which allows the camera to be quickly repositioned at 90°, and is designed for use with a camera attached to a lens up to 800/f5.6 size.

    More Information

    • Uniqball’s revolutionary design combines two ball heads in the same shell. The outer ball acts like a conventional ball head and also becomes the levelling base for the inner ball. So you can have the freedom of movement to follow action or get into a tight spot for a macro picture, and the next have a perfectly level base for landscape, panorama or video tracking shots.

    • The advantages of this design are many: most pictures, whether they include architecture, animals or people, need to be level, so ensuring this at the time of exposure saves time straightening and cropping in a computer; tracking horizontal fast action becomes extremely easy; and having this advantage with all the use of a conventional ball head, saves you the need to carry and swap two types of head.

    • Setting the outer ball takes just a few seconds: loosen the large lock knob and use the built-in spirit level to set it up – there’s no need to fiddle with the tripod legs. Then use the red knob under the quick release to control the inner ball. Its internal mechanism only allows panning and forward/back tilting, so it will always stay level once set up. And unlike most built-in bubble balls which are accurate to around 1°, the Uniqball one is calibrated at installation to 0.1°.

    • Although they are very strong, the Uniqball heads are not heavy. Designed for the travelling photographer using long lenses, they are manufactured from very high quality aluminium alloys – certal or perunal – used in the aerospace industry. These parts are milled to a 1/100mm tolerance resulting in a steel-like solidity with light weight, plus silky smooth movements. The heads are hand-assembled, with every part tested before being passed.

    • The X-Cross Arca-pattern clamp allows rapid bi-directional mounting of a camera, with a single locking knob for either orientation, whilst still permitting fore-and-aft movement of the camera plate to facilitate balancing of the camera/lens assembly. It’s supplied with a 60mm plate: longer types are available from Uniqball, and other makers’ plates which adhere accurately to the Arca pattern (e.g. Kirk, RRS, Novoflex) can also be used.

    • Uniqballs are supplied with an adjusting allen key for the plate and clamp, a soft drawstring pouch, instruction manual and are guaranteed for one year. This can be extended to 3 years free of charge by registering with Uniqball.

    • The UBH45XC is recommended for use with pro-body DSLRs with any type of lens, including the largest e.g. 600mm f4, 800mm f5.6, 200-400mm f4, 500mm f4, 400mm f2.8, 300mm f2.8, 100-400mm f5.6, 50-500mm f6.3.
